Madonna‘s daughter, Lourdes Leon, flaunted her armpit hair (again) — this time to ring in the New Year. The 21-year-old appeared with her mom in a candid New Year’s Eve photo shared on Twitter and Instagram, with the caption: “We are ready for you 2018! ”
With her arms raised above her head, Leon smiles into the camera as she shows off her unshaven pits.
As expected, a couple of trolls expressed their displeasure with a vengeance.
“Eeeewww, Why tho?” one naysayer commented on Instagram.
“Please shave it off….”
hopefully u find a better angle to take selfies this year

But the majority were left wondering why body hair is still a conversation topic in 2018?
Calm down, and have a wonderful 2018

Wow the movement has a long way to go still if a little underarm hair gets the masses this worked up

As long as she uses soap & deodorant it's all good. Women have been forced to shave. By men to fit an image of what they want women to be. ALL women have hair there. We're just not used to seeing it.

Madonna was one of the originators of the armpit hair trend.
“I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2011. “I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”
Both mother and daughter look gorgeous, don’t you think?
