A section of those who commented on the photos felt that the mother of two was over exposed basing on the fact that she was rocking an animal print Bikini on the beach.

Maureen lamented that the Bikini photos got unwanted backlash, with a section saying mums should not wear Bikinis.
“Society: Be yourself
Society: No, Not like that!🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️
Uploaded this on IG and I got people in my DMs preaching and telling me that apparently mums shouldn't wear bikinis at the beach” posed Maureen Waititu.
However, Ms Waititu’s Twitter Family urged her not to pay attention to critics who are always cyber-bullying and talking ill of other people.
