Rosie O'Donnell was never afraid to air her opinions on the war in Iraq during her 'View' tenure, but war-related photos of her 4-year-old daughter are causing many to think Rosie's gone too far. On her blog Tuesday, O'Donnell posted photos of her daughter Vivian Rose in a post titled "Dress Up." In the photo sequence, Vivian Rose is shown with the header "Last year a princess," where she's seen in the typical royal wardrobe. Then, "This year a soldier" flashes across the video slide show, revealing the blond-haired child wearing a bullet belt and head coverings.The images are causing an uproar among many, causing a flood of e-mails speaking out against them on Rosie's blog."Ro, so disappointed to see your little ones with bullets. Where are the guns? I thought for sure you would protect them more from such things," one angry reader said to O'Donnell."That picture is gross! I am disturbed," another reader said. According to the New York Daily News, O'Donnell wrote on her blog: ""My daughter in a soldier costume, national news. [But] 3,500 dead soldiers for real, they don't comment. Shame," O'Donnell wrote on her blog, responding to the criticism." On Wednesday morning, those words were not on the blog.The Daily News says Rosie claims the photo was intended to show how Vivian Rose likes to mimic her older brothers, and that the bullets were fake."Her children were playing and they play dress-up, and that was just an image that she took," O'Donnell's spokesperson Cindi Berger told the Daily News. "She is absolutely anti-war."
