Coco Austin recently slammed a critic who warned her not to “exploit” her newborn baby Chanel on social media.

Over the past week, Austin has been sharing several of her daughter’s pictures on various social media platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. scThe proud mother has even set up a separate Instagram and Twitter account for Chanel, after she and husband Ice-T welcome their daughter in late November. However, a fan recently commented on Facebook that Austin should be careful of sharing too much of her baby’s pictures on social media, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The fan wrote, "Coco darling, don't exploit your newborn beautiful lil angel. I say with respect honey."

This garnered a response from Austin who stated clarified that she’s not “exploiting” her baby. She wrote, "How is this exploiting her? I'm proud that I'm finally a mama… does she not look happy?"

Austin and Ice T also took to Twitter on Saturday to indicate that they were sharing Chanel’s pictures without expecting any financial returns from the posts. The proud parents even used Chanel’s Twitter account to deliver their message. They wrote, “Mom and Dad said they didn't want any money for my baby pics...... They're cool like that.”

Since Chanel’s birth, Austin has taken to social media to share cute images of her baby. One of the latest pictures included a Christmas shot in which the newborn baby was wearing a red and white onesie while in front of a Christmas tree.

The Instagram image was captioned, "’My sleeper choice of the day’.. Since I have a vast wardrobe already I'm gonna start posting my wardrobe choices... Is that a good idea?”

Another cute Instagram post showed Chanel with her small hands covering her eyes as she lay on top of a pink blanket. The image was captioned, “Mama, no more pics please! Wanna take a nap.”

Austin gave birth to her and Ice T’s first daughter Chanel on Nov. 28.
