(WITI) — One woman is facing harsh criticism after she dressed her daughter as a Hooters waitress for a beauty pageant.

According to Gawker, 33-year-old Leann and her four-year-old daughter Scarlett were featured on a documentary called Blinging Up Baby.

Leann, who designed the outfit, says she thought it was cute — but critics are complaining that it’s not appropriate for a four-year-old.

However, Leann argues that it’s no different than wearing a swimsuit.
