Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson deleted an Instagram post following criticism from his followers.
The post in question was a photo of his three-year-old daughter Jasmine, perched on the side of a pool with no bathing suit on, about to jump into the waiting arms of her 47-year-old movie star father.
Following a barrage of negative comments from fans, the Hobbs & Shaw star deleted the picture on Monday morning.

At the time of deletion, more than 2.9million people had liked the picture on Instagram.
However, not all were supportive, with one commenter writing, ‘I love the Rock but this pic isn’t necessary for social media. They made bathing suits for a reason.’
‘Why would you expose a young child’s body to millions of people?’ added another user.

However the WWE wrestling alum had some supporters in the comments section.
‘Those who are sexualizing this picture of his daughter because she is swimming with no clothes on obviously don’t know what it’s like to grow up in the islands or in a Polynesian house hold,’ wrote one person.
‘This is very normal and not sexual in any way with our culture.’
The star has not yet commented on the furor over his post.
