People Are Flipping Out at Kim Kardashian for Letting North West Wear Hoop Earrings

This is…insane.

  • Kim Kardashian is getting major backlash thanks to letting North West wear giant hoop earrings in an Instagram post.
  • Fans say North is too young to be wearing the earrings and are mom-shaming Kim as a result.

Kim Kardashian just posted a very sweet photo of her and North West pinky swearing that they’ll be friends forever, and honestly, there’s nothing to complain about! Unless you’re one of the trolls lurking in her comments, in which case there’s so much to complain about, starting with North’s hoop earrings.

Everyone seems extremely confused and upset that North is wearing said earrings in the below picture, and naturally many people have felt the need to criticize Kim in the comments.

Here’s what Kimberly is dealing with in her notifications:

‘Cute but those giant hoops for a little girl ?? She’s not even 11 yet.’

‘North has no business wearing hoops that big at what, 6? They’re gonna pull on her little holes.’

‘Why is she wearing hoop earrings??? She doesn’t look like a little girl.’

‘Kim dress your kid according to her age. This is sooo not ok. Hoops seriously?’

‘Let her be a kid! Don’t make her older than she should be! Your only a kid once!’

And honestly this is just a brief sampling—Kim’s comments are basically flooded with concerned fans and mom shamers. But a few things! 1) North was probably wearing these earrings for approximately five minutes for fun because she’s a kid and kids like to dress up. Her ears are fine! It also looks like she probably borrowed them from her aunt, judging from this pic:


And 2) let’s all just trust that Kim knows how to raise her daughter without input from randoms online, mmmkay?
