Paris Jackson has been forced to restrict the comments on her latest post after trolls called out her apparently inappropriate dress.

Clearly, the internet haters have no clue that the dress - created by Jean Paul Gaultier - features a vintage design that has taken over streetwear during the past few months.

In fact, Gaultier is a pioneer of dramatic fashion moments often associated with street style - including the iconic 90s body morph design. Now that the late 90s and early 00s are at the very forefront of current fashion trends, this design has elbowed its way onto the bodies of celebrities and prominent influencers. And Jackson, 25, is no different - sporting a Gaultier naked body morph dress at a recent fashion event.

Taking to Instagram, the only daughter of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, posted a short clip of herself wearing the dress, accompanied by a voiceover featuring a conversation between two people arguing over whether one of them should wear a bra as their nipples were showing through their clothing.

Check out the risqué dress below:

Many people in the comments section obviously didn't understand the assignment - apparently seeming to believe that Jackson was wearing a sheer dress, rather than one printed with a naked body. "Is there a point to this dress? And when do we start leaving things to the imagination versus having to see everything on display? Sorry Paris this outfit was a flop," one person wrote.

Another user took the time to comment on how her young daughter - who likely doesn't have Instagram - shouldn't have to be exposed to something so controversial. "Art is fine…… but my 6 year old daughter doesn't need to see nude bodies. Keep this away from the kids and keep it on a runway for only adults," they wrote.

"Do you need to expose your body in this way? Sorry, but you should review your financial and emotional needs to see if you really need exposure," someone else chimed in.

"This is not a good look. It's vulgar but she is not my daughter she needs someone to talk to and care about her well being," another critic weighed in.

Many users praised Jackson for wearing the design, however, with one user writing: "This is very well made. People get so easily offended by the female body, even when it's just a print on clothing."

"Why are so many people complaining?! It's literally a Printed dress! Beside this is She covered completely from head to toe, like calm down. It's also not her problem if you can’t contain your thoughts," another person added in defense of Jackson.

A further user chimed in with: "People are really that dense to automatically assume the dress is see-through? Good grief, go step in grass in reconnect yourself with nature folks. It ain't that deep [...]."

Despite the multitude of supportive comments, Jackson ended up disabling them for the post. She has not addressed any of the negative comments on the dress directly, but she did take to her Instagram story afterwards to post a video of Pedro Pascal eating a sandwich with a text overlay that read: "When you just wanted to wear a piece of art by Gaultier but people are debating on [your] dignity."
