It’s hard enough being a mom. It’s even harder being a mom and famous. Moms in the pickup line, at class events, and on the playground are judgy enough. Can you imagine being a celebrity and having “fans” and “haters” attack you for just doing what you do as a mom?
That’s what the Kardashian sisters face daily. People really feel like it’s their business to tell celebrities how they should dress their children. Or, how much makeup their kids should wear to a soccer game or how their child’s hair should or should not be done. It’s exhausting just thinking about it.
The following 10 celebrities have been mom shamed for some truly ridiculous reasons. Let’s commiserate with them.
1. Kim Kardashian West
Being a Kardashian/Jenner and living your life in front of/for the cameras means you’re fair game. Or does it? I don’t think it should. They have a private life as well. Still, trolls can’t resist shaming Kim for a bevy of perceived wrongs that she appears to have perpetrated against her kids. For one thing, the Kardashian family has a tradition of putting out a glamorous Christmas card. When she posted a recent one, the trolls came out for how her daughter North West looked, saying: “Your daughter is how old? Why is she wearing lipstick? Sad,” and “This red on a five-year-old old is tacky and takes away from their beauty.” Sigh. I guess none of their daughters (or sons) ever got into mama’s makeup and wanted to try it.
Another time, Kim shared a photo of her and North on the beach. Commenters could not resist mom shaming Kim for putting North in a bikini. “That swim suit is a bit inappropriate for a little girl in my opinion!!” one person commented on Instagram. I think what is inappropriate is trying to police other people’s choices of how to dress their own kid.
