Kim Kardashian is putting critics on notice. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) star took to social media on Tuesday (Feb. 9) to call out trolls who accused her 7-year-old daughter, North West, of stealing another person’s artwork.
The criticism came after Kim shared her daughter’s latest oil painting with the Internet. The imagery was simply incredible as it had a great balance of color and overall creativity.
Many fans praised North’s abilities at such a young age. Some, however, accused the youngster and her mom of stealing the painting from someone else and passing the work off as North’s creation. Kim Kardashian made haste to address her daughter’s haters.
“Don’t play with me when it comes to my children,” the celebrity mom shared. “My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured. North worked incredibly hard on her painting, which took several weeks to complete. As a proud mom, I wanted to share her work with everyone.”
Kim did not hold back on her rant as she directly addressed the critics who took the time to openly question if North created the painting herself. “I’m seeing op-ed pieces in the media and social media from grown adults breaking down whether or not my child actually painted this,” the KUWTK star exclaimed. “How dare you see children doing awesome things then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome,” Kardashian continued. “Please stop embarrassing yourselves with the negativity and allow every child to be GREAT! North West painted that! Perdiot!”
This is not the first time North West has been accused of plagiarizing another creative’s work. It was just a few months ago that fans of young rapper ZaZa were quick to point out that Kim Kardashian’s oldest daughter used the lyrics and rhythm of ZaZa’s song, ‘What I Do?’ during her presentation at her father’s fashion show in Paris, France.
Kim took to Instagram to give a shoutout to ZaZa following the backlash. Still, some remained firm in their criticism of North and the Kardashians at large.
North West is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s oldest child together. The celebrities have four kids in all.
