See the controversial shot that’s weirding people out
Another day, another controversy for Kim Kardashian.
Though being shamed for her photos is unfortunately nothing new for the 37-year-old reality star, her latest stunt is creating an uproar among even her most loyal fans after she allowed her daughter, North West, to snap a topless photo of her.
In the controversial shot — which was shared on Instagram this week —
Kim appeared in a state of undress with an unclasped bra falling around her waist. Wearing only a pair of black spandex pants, the mom-of-three concealed her top with her hands as North — seen in a reflection in the mirror in front of them — snapped the picture.
“By North,” the KKW Beauty founder captioned the candid portrait along with a camera emoji.
As with almost everything Kim does these days, fans had mixed feelings about the eyebrow-raising snap. Many questioned its ethics and thought it was in bad taste to have a toddler take a seemingly sexually charged photo of their mother.
“This is literally weird. Like it’s just weird”, user @eimearvarianbarry remarked, while @ninawinst82 asked, “Why would you get your daughter to take a pic like this?”
“I wonder how many people would get social services called on them if this was anyone else but Kim K?? This is subpar parenting,” @campzan blasted.
“You don’t need to be a perfect parent to know that this is beyond ridiculous and desperate,” @__phillipaa__ wrote.
A Family Affair
However, some argued that the pic captured an empowering moment between the mother-daughter duo, sharing the opinion that Kim was encouraging her little one to be comfortable with the human body at a young age.
“As long as north was comfortable with taking this picture then it’s fine. Kim is an adult, she can do what ever she wants. She’s not disgusting, so if you have a problem with it then leave her page,” @hannan0411 commented.
“How is this bad? My mom used to change in front of me all the time. It’s normal with moms and daughters, at least where I’m from. Maybe North was just playing with the camera when Kim was changing,” @Carolinepool98 shared. “It’s normal, y’all. Stop reaching.”
