    The Internet’s peanut gallery expressed their collective disgust when a series of photos surfaced of a bikini-clad Stephanie Seymour embracing and kissing her teenage son a beach.

    “Eeeeek!” exclaimed a celebs.gather.com commenter. “If I was found doing this with my dad when I was his age, even if innocently, I bet he would have been charged!”

    “omg i seriously just about vomited on my work computer,” said Oh No They Didn’t! commenter.

    PHOTOS: Stephanie and son on the beach.

    And those are just the ones tame enough to reprint.

    The photos in question were taken on December 28, 2010 when Seymour and her family were on vacation in St. Barts.

    The Internet tittering really took off after a series of the more provocative photos were posted on Popeater.com on January 7, 2011 with the headline, “Stephanie Seymour Caught Kissing Her Son?”

    On Tuesday, Seymour’s son, Peter Brant II, responded to the hubbub with a statement released to Gawker.com.

    “I would just like to say that these pictures have been taken completely out of context, my mother and i are very close as she is with all her children. she often hugs and kisses me and my siblings in an manner that is intimate, any mother in the world does the same. that day on the beach we walked around with each other completely aware of the presence of photographers there. We have nothing to hide and with that in mind I would like to say that I am openly gay. At my age my mother and I are almost like friends and I feel open to talk to her about anything (and yes our relationship may be different because of my sexuality).”

    On his Facebook page , Brant declares: “Now about this whole Beach kiss scandal I would just like to say it has been taken completely out of context and I dont appreciate speculation on my personal relationship with my mother and any other uninhibited opinions.”

    Take that, nosy commenters!
