Another day, another controversy on Kim Kardashian West’s Instagram feed. Even though the reality star appears to have finally taken the understandably controversial, so-called “Bo Derek” braids (aka Fulani braids) out of her hair, she’s now facing another round of negative reactions for her latest upload, which was taken by her 4-year-old daughter North West.
In the pic, which she posted bright and early on Thursday morning, the mom of three holds an unclasped bra to her chest and looks into a mirror; in the reflection, we can see North standing behind her, snapping the photo. Kardashian West captioned the snap “📸 by North,” and it’s been liked over a million times — and has attracted a lot of comments saying that it’s inappropriate for a child to photograph her mother in a state of half-dress. (Let the record show that KKW’s bottom half is covered by high-waisted leggings.)
One Instagram user commented, “This is extremely perverted and extremely inappropriate.” Another added, “Wow you just could’nt [sic] let Kylie have all the attention.” Still another, who doesn’t appear to be a mental health professional of any kind, went so far as to offer the unqualified diagnosis no one asked for, writing, “Histrionic personality disorder (HPD) is defined by the American Psychiatric Association as a personality disorder characterized by a pattern of excessive attention-seeking emotions, usually beginning in early adulthood, including inappropriately seductive behavior and an excessive need for approval.”
Did Kim ask North to take this picture? Was it North’s idea? Was it candid or staged? Did Kim consult with her daughter on which filters to use to fit the picture into her Instagram aesthetic? Who knows? Not me and, also, not you. Most of us have never met any of the Kardashians IRL, so it’s best to just take a step back and — yeah, just take a step back. Anyway, here’s the picture in question, plus a few more of the more intense comments it has attracted, in case you need your daily dose of Internet controversy right now:
