Khloe Kardashian Shamed After Posting A Video Of True, And People Might Have A Point

Hollywood Life / Instagram

Ever since Khloe Kardashian has gotten pregnant, the tabloids have been criticizing her every move.

Whether it be the decisions she makes about her cheating baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, or the way she raises her now two-month-old daughter True.

Just a few weeks ago, Khloe was criticized for feeding her daughter baby formula.

And before that, while she was still pregnant, she was shamed for touching her belly "so much."

Honestly, it's unfair for Khloe to be criticized for these things.

She is not harming her baby in any way by endearingly caressing her pregnant belly or giving True baby formula because she doesn't produce enough breast milk.

However, this time around, her fans may have a leg to stand on.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was mom-shamed for getting True's ears pierced.

The video of True with what appears to be diamond studs caught the attention of millions of fans on Khloe's Instagram.

The Instagram story was taken while the reality star was celebrating her 34th birthday on June 27.

"Here's my little lady. Look at my little lady," the new mother excitedly said while cradling her baby.

The Instagram video is no longer available, but people were still quick to react and question the authenticity of the piercing.

Reactions

“No way did Khloe Kardashian get True’s ears pierced. She’s a baby and not even half-a-year-old yet,” one person wrote on Twitter.

One Twitter user wrote that it's no one's business what the Kardashians do.

"Cannot believe people have nothing better to do then follow the Kardashians and comment on their choices," Anna Camejo wrote.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has weighed in on infant piercing in the past. Here's what they wrote on their website:

"Ears may be pierced for cosmetic reasons at any age, and during the middle years of childhood, some youngsters will ask to have their ears pierced. If the piercing is performed carefully and cared for conscientiously, there is little risk, no matter what the age of the child. However, as a general guideline, postpone the piercing until your child is mature enough to take care of the pierced site herself."

Dr. Bill Bush, the pediatric-in-chief at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan told TODAY that he doesn't have a good reason to say that parents can't have their baby's ears pierced.

That being said, he recommends parents putting safety backings to prevent earrings from getting swallowed.

"Caring for an infant with pierced ears is not different than caring for another child, except in the baby's case, it's up to the parent to care for the child's ears," he said.

So Is It Real?

Khloe hasn't posted any new photos of True, so we have no idea if those are clip on earrings or real studs.

What's interesting is that a day after Khloe's birthday, her sister Kim wished her a happy birthday message on Instagram featuring Khloe, True, and Chicago.

In this picture, True doesn't have an earring.

That being said, this picture could have been taken another day.

But it's not out of character for the Kardashians to get their baby's ears pierced. North West got hers for her first birthday and Kim's fans were furious.

Here's what Twitter users had to say then:

“Far too young. Let her decide for herself when older! Should be banned, unnecessary and cruel. Purely for vanity of parents."

“Shes only a year old! I think it should be the child's choice NOT the parents!! #SorryNotSorry."

What's your take on this? How old should a child be to get their ears pierced?

Khloe isn't the only Kardashian to get shamed for her parenting tactics. Recently, Kourtney was mom-shamed over her 8-year-old son's eyebrows.
