This Is The Controversial Picture That Got Julianne Hough In Trouble (PHOTOS)

Instagram users were greeted with an unusual sight last week, when Julianne Hough posted a photo of her dead grandfather inside his open casket, Yahoo! Celebrity reported.

The website noted that people are more accustomed to tamer fare from Hough, like pictures from her recent bikini party, shots of her dog, selfies, and tips for using lip gloss. The former “Dancing With the Stars” celebrity showed her serious side with several posts about her granddad, Robert Virgil Hough, after he died. In one shot, her brother, Derek, is shown standing beside the casket.

At last count, almost 1,000 Instagram users had commented on the picture, which Hough decorated with emojis of an infant, an elderly man and an angel. “Why would you post such a personal family moment on social media?” one person wrote. “Poor choice.” Another commented: “What’s wrong with you, @juleshough? This is morbid. Why you ever think this is proper?”

Another Instagram user asked: “Why do we have to post everything on social media? When I’m at a funeral of someone I love, I’m too overcome with grief to do something like this just so others can see it.”

However, others were not so critical, and some even offered their support to Hough. Elaine Swann, which Yahoo! Celebrity identified as a “lifestyles and etiquette expert,” told the site: “Social media has got us in an oversharing stage. It really does. In my opinion, when we post, we really have to be concerned about those who are going to view it and how they might feel about what we have posted.”
