Some fans call the move hypocritical.

The Spice Girls’ Mel C (Melanie Chisholm) may not be rejoining the girl group for a reunion, but she is making waves via social media. Sporty Spice recently posted a photo of herself topless on Instagram, prepping for a photo shoot.

In the picture, Chisholm is covering her chest with her arms, showing off her washboard abs and tattoos.

“Cheeky little cover shoot tomorrow,” Mel C captioned the photo. “Better get my work pants ready!”

After she posted the photo, she was called out on social media by some fans for being a hypocrite since she recently criticized British girl group Little Mix for being too provocative.

In an interview in October, Mel C shared that while she loves Little Mix she thought they were “getting more provocative.”

“I love Little Mix. I loved them from The X Factor,” she said, according to NME. “I just thought they were so different. But they are getting more provocative. To me, they were kind of the closest thing to the Spice Girls we’ve seen. They are all gorgeous and great singers. But they weren’t sexy and it’s got more and more that way. I love them – but I just say, ‘Stay you’.”

While some criticized Melanie C for her post, she seems well aware of the risqué photo as she captioned her post with #putsomeclothesonwoman.
