Kim Kardashian is getting mom-shamed after posting this photo for the most ridiculous reason
For some people, Kim Kardashian can't put a foot wrong, for others, however, she can't put a foot right. Never before has there been a celebrity with the power to divide to such a degree. Never before have we seen a woman elevate herself to such an extraordinary platform off the back of so much hate. And, because of this, you've got to tip your hat to her.
Kim Kardashian West is a headline-making machine. No matter what she does, no matter where she goes and no matter what she says, we will hear about it. We analyse her every move and examine her every upload. We are a world obsessed with one family and this period in history will be etched into memory, forever to be known as "The Kardashian Era."
Yet, as stated, for all her success, for all her millions of fans, Kim has to be one of the most despised individuals in the world. Whatever she uploads, whether it be a bikini selfie, an image of her family or simply a picture of where she is on holiday, Kim will be inundated with abuse. This time, however, it was her choice of hairstyle for her daughter.
Taking to her Instagram to upload a photo of her husband and daughter spending some quality time together, Kim was mom-shamed again for straightening out North's curls. In the image, the youngster can be seen giving her smiling dad (yes, smiling Kanye!) a kiss on the cheek.
However, rather than see the photo for what it is - an adorable photo of a father and a daughter - trolls decided to fire shots at Kim and her parenting techniques. "I can feel the heat damage from here! Leave your [kid's] hair alone let her have the choice to damage it when she's older," one person commented. "Stop straightening her hair," someone else wrote, while another added: "That poor baby's curl pattern is gonna be all jacked up from the heat damage she's putting on her hair at a young age."
While plenty of people leapt to Kim's defence, saying it's hers and North's choice, Kim has also defended herself from criticism in the past.
She explained the decision to The Hollywood Reporter, stating: "She wanted straight hair and I straightened her hair one time. It's funny, because online everyone thought that we pressed it and did this whole thing. It was just a flat iron. I even read that she had extensions on!
"She has curly hair, so when you straighten her hair, it's gonna look really long. I can't believe people didn't get that. Sometimes you just have to tune it out! It was her birthday and all she wanted was to try to have her hair straightened."
The KKW Beauty founder noted that her own professional hairstylist, Chris Appleton, helped out with North's special style, and added, "She liked it, so we did it when we went to New York too, and that's it. You know, I'm not gonna let her straighten her hair all the time, but if she wants it that way two or three days a year, then that's fine with me. She loved it, but she loves her curly hair, too."
Honestly, are we really at a stage where we're going to criticise every single mother who lets their daughter straighten her hair every now and then? Or, is this just another example of everyone jumping on the Kim Kardashian bashing bandwagon?
