Kim Kardashian is no stranger to being mom-shamed over what she lets North do.
This time, fans and followers saw a photo of the 6-year-old and raised a cry of dismay.
Did Kim really let North wear a nose ring?
MJ celebrated her 85th birthday.
In true Kardashian fashion, the family partied and took photos while honoring their grandmother's major milestone.
In one of the photos, shared to social media, Kourtney, Penelope, North, True, and Khloe are all in a row.
(Also, Penelope looks so much like her father in this pic)
But one detail stands out about North's look.
The 6-year-old child appears to be wearing ... a nose ring?!
Kim shared the image, but she already knew that she was going to get raked across the coals for North's nose jewelry.
That was why Kim included a disclaimer on the image itself:
"Fake nose ring alert!!!" Kim warned her followers.
It was clearly her hope to cut down on some of the inevitable backlash, outrage, and mom-shaming.
Unfortunately, even with Kim spelling it out that the nose ring was fake, it
Commenters were quick to voice their bewilderment and their disapproval.
"Why on earth does North have a nose ring?" asked ne follower.
"Why df kim let north have a faux nose ring she too damn grown," declared another.
"What’s up with North?" another asked, wondering if this is part of a pattern with Kim and Kanye's eldest child.
After all, North has been targeted by critics before over her outfits and use of makeup.
The nose ring was fake. North was at a party. She is six years old.
There's nothing inappropriate about wearing a fake piece of body jewelry -- especially when it's right there on your face.
When people raise a fuss about parents piercing their baby's ears, but that is an issue o consent and child comfort.
North wore a harmless prop on her face at her great-grandmother's party.
There is nothing in the world wrong with that.
North came under fire late last year.
At the time still a 5-year-old, North was seen wearing bright red lip matte -- from her mother's beauty brand.
Scores of commenters bombarded Kim with furious messages about North being allowed to wear makeup.
It's unclear if these busybodies are aware that it's 100% normal for young girls to wear makeup on special occassions.
Most don't have a mother who's a beauty mogul, but plenty of kids dabble in makeup. It's how they learn.
Kim has revealed that North has a particular interest in makeup.
She says that North an her peer group will, when left to their own devices, will discuss and use makeup for fun.
While it's absolutely important to have serious talks about body image and self-esteem, that sounds completely harmless to us.
As harmless as a fake nose ring at a family party, you might say.
Honestly, some mom-shamers just need to get better, kinder hobbies.
