Kourtney Kardashian is the latest target of online mom-shaming. The socialite Kourtney, who is part of the reality television show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", was in the news lately for her rekindled love affair with Justin Bieber. The criticisms hurled against her this time were, however, not about Bieber.
Kourtney Kardashian got a lot of bashing from everyone after she posted a photo on Instagram which showed her four-year old daughter Penelope Disick wearing a lip ring. Kourtney's sister Kim Kardashian has been seen promoting lip rings lately. And now, Kourtney Kardashians daughter is seen wearing the same facial accessory.
"Our Oscar Sunday. Yes, that's a lip ring. Thanks @kimkardashian," read the Instagram photo caption that elicited mixed reactions from Kourtney Kardashian's followers.
Kourtney Kardashian confirmed that the lip ring was indeed a gift from Kim Kardashian, according to Time. The Instagram post became viral, not in a good way after her followers lashed out at her decision to allow her daughter to wear a lip ring even at such a young age.
One of Kourtney Kardashian's followers said Penelope is still young and Kourtney should not rush her maturity by letting her wear a lip ring. There were doubts about the lip ring, though, since other followers believed it was the clip-on type. Others were, however, concerned the lip ring was real.
Surprisingly, most of those who made a comment on Kourtney Kardashian's post defended her, according to Yahoo. They found the photo of Kourtney and her daughter relaxing on the bed sweet and beautiful. Others cautioned her critics and said even if the lip ring was true, they were not in the right position to tell Kourtney Kardashian how to raise her child.
Kourtney Kardashian earlier admitted the pressure of trying to become a perfect parent. She has, however, learned to ignore the noise and rely on her instincts.
