People took to the comments of her post, agreeing with the influencer's take on the performance.
One person on Twitter wrote: "The unjustified selective outrage towards you is absurd. It's some of the worst online bullying in the history of social media, and I don't know how those people look at themselves in the mirror. Awful."
"Double standards, unfortunately.
"Just keep going! @PaigeSpiranac," another added.
A third wrote: "Parents need to understand that they are their kids role model. They have been watching and listening to their parents since birth. What Paige does or how she dresses shouldn't greatly impact your children if you have raised them and instilled in them God's and your values."
Nicki Minaj also performed some o of her greatest hits as she was awarded the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Despite this past weekend being a grand one for MTV, Spiranac also had something to celebrate, as she dropped her "Happy Gilmore"-inspired towel on Friday (26 August).
"Welcome to your Happy Place," Spiranac captioned an Instagram post of the towel as she channeled Julie Bowen's Virginia Venit from the 1996 Adam Sandler golf comedy.
She was sporting all-white lingerie and held two pitchers of beer.
Savouring the moment, Spiranac took to her Twitter to pen an inspiring message.
"I used to be so worried about being taken 'seriously' and pleasing people who didn't even like me. Everything changed in my career when I started having fun with my content and doing what I wanted," she wrote.
\u201cI used to be so worried about being taken \u201cseriously\u201d and pleasing people who didn\u2019t even like me. Everything changed in my career when I started having fun with my content and doing what I wanted. Today I\u2019m shooting my calendar and dropped a sick towel! Be unapologeticly you\u201d
