Former Argentine Playboy model Belen Rodriguez has been criticized after she posted a video on Instagram last week of her and her three-year-old son, where she is seen seemingly sticking her tongue in her son's mouth.

In the video, Rodriguez's son is seen laughing with his mother at a restaurant. The model can be seen grabbing his face and bringing it close to hers with her tongue sticking out. She then puts her tongue inside her son's mouth as he laughs, after which Rodriguez wipes whipped cream from his face as he poses for the camera.

The video, which can very well be interpreted as an innocent mother and son moment, has nonetheless elicited a mix of comments both berating and defending Rodriguez's actions. Some social media users called the clip "erotic" and said the model should be "ashamed."

A report by Mirror documented how several people reacted to the video. One Instagram user claimed licking was "never an affectionate gesture, but erotic," while another critic said: "You're not a cat." A third one said "If she does this in public what could happen in private?"

Many others jumped to her defense, insisting that the mother didn’t do anything wrong. One said "I do the same with my daughter and I don't see that is perverted." Another pointed out: "He seems like a happy and sweet child. I don't understand what you see here that is not right!"

"I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm not a fan of Belen! Not at all! But I in this act do not see anything wrong!" another commenter wrote.

This is not the first time that Rodriguez has faced a scandal. In 2011, someone leaked a video of Rodriguez and her boyfriend having sex. Last year, Rodriguez revealed that she suffered a miscarriage as a result of the X-rated tape being made public.

"I was depressed for two months, I couldn't leave the house because I was so ashamed and I lost my baby. I'm perhaps the only person not to have watched the video. I was very young and I did all I could to erase it but I wasn’t able to. The absurd thing is that even now, you can see that video with just the click of a mouse," she said at the time.
