Kylie Jenner is getting criticized once again! This time around, the reality TV star got a lot of backlash over her decision to pierce her baby daughter’s ears already, despite Stormi being only five months old!
Now, a lot of Twitter users are mom shaming the 20-year-old, and the messages are rough!
Kylie posted a super cute video, and pic of the infant on her Snapchat and fans noticed pretty quickly that she had her ears pierced.
‘I think there should be an age limit on it. Like you cannot have them done until you’re 13 with parents consent. It’s ridiculous,’ one user commented.
‘Noooo, why has Kylie Jenner had her 5-month-old baby’s ears pierced?!!’ another wrote.
But why does the backlash feel like déjà vu? That’s right, because just a few days before Kylie, her sister Khloe also received a similar reaction to her decision to pierce her own daughter True’s ears.
‘KhloeKardashian Why would you put your daughter through pain at 2months old to have some stupid studs in her ears! She’s a baby!! I would never dream of piercing my daughter’s ears, and she’s six months if she asks me when she’s older she can. #herdecision #notyours,’ one concerned mother tweeted.
The thing is, getting babies’ ears pierced is definitely not a rare thing.
In fact, some medical specialists suggest for babies’ ears to be pierced as young as two weeks, or after they get their tetanus shot.
Besides, we think it’s better to do it while they’re infants because they won’t remember the otherwise possibly traumatizing experience later on.
One fan agreed, tweeting: ‘why is Stormi Webster’s pierced ears a big controversial thing? isn’t that like a given? i got my ears pierced so that i can look good for the christening im confused why are there mad articles???’
Another also defended Kylie saying: ‘Just don’t pierce YOUR babies ears and let moms who choose to do it do so without being damned. its not a ridiculous thing to have done. There are IMPORTANT things mom needs to-MUST-let their child make the choice on but ear-piercing is harmless. experts and many, many moms AGREE.’
