Wow! We thought the candid of North and Saint West bathing together shared by Kim Kardashian was quite cute. The celebrity mom, however, is getting a lot of backlash because of the picture.
For starters, let’s discuss the photo. The image was quite the innocent one with North holding her little brother as he relaxed in the bathtub. Both of the West children were all smiles and they gave the camera their full attention. “My babies,” Kim shared along with the candid on Instagram.
Perhaps it was the fact that neither North nor Saint were wearing clothes that sparked the lively debate online in which some cautioned Kim to be more selective when sharing photos of her kids online. “Love these kids and the photo,” one of Kim’s followers said. “But in the messed up world in which we live this photo should not be on social media. Not because it’s a bad photo but because there are bad people out there.” Another critic concurred writing, “Too many pervs out there. Protect your babies. I would take this pic down.”
Those who took issue with the picture may have a point. After all, Kim Kardashian does have upwards of 110 million social media followers, and nearly five million of them saw the post within hours of the celebrity mom sharing. Still, it is Kim’s decision as North and Saint’s mother to share what she deems best online regarding her kids. As one defender put it, “Both of them are kids and it’s the mother’s choice to do whatever she wants. You can’t tell her what’s wrong and right.” Our sentiments, exactly.
Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West have three children together.
