Kim Kardashian is caught in the midst of a firestorm after her four-year-old daughter North West took topless photos of her mother and then Kim posted them on social media. There is no mistaking that North West took the racy pictures as Kim clearly stated she did in the Instagram caption.
While Kim recently had another baby with husband Kanye West via surrogate and has shared nude photos since Chicago West’s birth, the controversy isn’t’ around a new mom sharing naked selfies.
What the issue is at hand is should a four-year-old photograph their mother topless. The women of The View, along with co-host for the day Nancy Grace discussed the issue. While many of the women expressed concern for what type of message Kim Kardashian is sending her four-year-old daughter, Nancy Grace’s response was a bit more severe.
The former prosecutor and criminal commentator stated that if Kim Kardashian were a regular woman and not famous, social services would pay her a visit.
The episode from The View, along with the video containing the show’s hosts’ commentary has gone viral. The show’s panel included Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Meghan McCain, and Nancy Grace.

The show’s panel was in agreement that social services would investigate anyone else whose four-year-old daughter was taking topless photos of their mother. It’s unclear exactly how much nudity is in the photo as Kim Kardashian’s back faces away from the camera and her back with bra straps around her arms is what’s visible.
The panel and the audience seemed to be in agreement that exposing North West to any nudity for the purpose of putting it on social media is not the same as someone who might be a nudist and raising their child in an environment that embraces the physical form and sees nudity as normal.
The comments and responses to the photo have shown up on all social media networks with many people saying they feel that North West taking topless photos of her mother is just downright wrong and teaches North West from a very young age to grow up and share her own topless or nude selfies on social media.
While no one knows exactly what the future will hold, it will be interesting to see what type of impact Kim Kardashian’s parenting will have on North West.
What do you think? Do you agree that if this happened to someone else, or if a regular mother had her four-year-old daughter taking topless photos she would have a visit from social services?
