Jennifer Lopez has been blasted by fans on her latest Instagram post, which people have deemed ‘inappropriate’ and ‘creepy’ for Father’s Day.
Affleck and Lopez wed last year, over twenty years after they split up, and it appeared that they had finally achieved their fairytale romance.
In a recent interview with Today, Jennifer expressed nothing but joy for her new spouse and life, calling 2022 her “best year” since the birth of her children. She added: “It’s been, like, a really kind of emotional transition, but at the same time all your dreams coming true.”
However, some people think things haven’t been going as smoothly for the pair as she let on. They have been spotted numerous times squabbling about one thing or another. But their Grammys spat, which went viral earlier this year, led people to believe their relationship isn’t all sunshine and rainbows.
In the clip, Jennifer turns her head and sharply addresses Ben after the actor can be seen bending down to whisper something in her ear.
While we can’t make out what the pair are talking about, a lip reader for the Daily Mail claims J-Lo said: “Stop. Look more friendly. Look motivated.”
They went on to say that Affleck replied with: “I might.”
Their awkward interaction quickly became a meme, with Twitter users jumping on the drama online.
Many were trying to figure out what the singer was saying to Affleck.
One person wrote: “I’d pay for an alternate Grammy broadcast that’s just a livestream of Ben Affleck and J. Lo’s table.”
Another said: “Someone get Ben Affleck a cigarette and a Dunkin’ coffee stat.”
However, the latest controversy from the duo is not about them not getting on, but rather getting on perhaps a little too well…
Lopez shared a post to her Instagram celebrating Affleck this Father’s Day, but fans think that what she decided to post was a bit too much.
“Daddy Appreciation Post,” she wrote. “Happy Father’s Day Papa. And Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing Papas out there!! We love you and appreciate you more than you will ever know.”
Although this caption is rather innocent, it was J Lo’s first choice of picture that fans found issue with. She shared a shirtless shower snap of the Argo star, alongside a clip of herself talking about how good of a father she thinks he is, as well as 2 sweet selfies of the pair.
The comments section is full of fans critiquing the ‘quesitonable’ content.
One wrote: “I don’t know why …. But this post is somewhat cringe.”
A second said: “What a weird creepy picture to put.”
While a third wrote: “Why would you post a shower pic of your husband? That’s appreciating him as a dad? Weird. Lol.”
However, some fans rushed to the singer’s defence.
One argued: “I swear y’all are so damn negative! Let her post what she wants; that’s her husband. It’s her IG! Just bend over and get the stick out y’all arses already….geesh! Social media is just a hateful place.”
A second added: “This comment section did NOT pass the vibe check! Let’s not be miserable on the internet for a change? Happy for you JLo. Grateful for good fathers.”
