Kanye West and Kim Kardashian recently revealed they are expecting their second child. Rolling Stone has the news.
“Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West are expecting their second child. The reality star announced her pregnancy during the Sunday midseason finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians… In a scene previewing the season’s second half, Kardashian tells her family the news: ‘I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!’ “
One would think that people would be happy for the expecting couple. Then again, this is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West we are talking about. Comments all over the Internet ranged from rude to downright vile.
“Kim and Kanye are narcissistic enough to name the baby West West,” says commenter XFitGurl under an article on the same topic by Us Weekly.
“She actually hired a surrogate and is going to borrow Beyoncé’s fake baby bumps. No way would this shallow woman go through another pregnancy herself. She said she would rather have cancer than a stretch mark,” says commenter Polly Fiske under the same article.
Things were just as bad on Twitter.
I could care less about Kanye and Kim having another baby. It will get exploited just like everything else they do for relevance and fame!!

Many people were surprised, especially given Kim Kardashian’s recent revelation that she is having a hard time getting pregnant. E! News reported that even Kim Kardashian was exhausted with Kanye West when trying for another baby.
“We are trying. We try every single day. You can’t try harder than we try. It’s getting exhausting. He always says, ‘Trying for baby No. 2 isn’t as fun as trying to baby No. 1.’ “
Despite the usual vile nonsense from social media trolls, there are many who are spreading their positive wishes to both Kardashian and West.
“Kim looks gorgeous per usual. So happy for them!” says commenter Barbara under an article in People about the pregnancy.
Under an E Online! article about the pregnancy, commenter Nanimus says what a lot of others are thinking.
“Its one thing to not like Kanye West or Kim Kardashian. They are adults who understand what they are doing with their lives and they have done some very unlikable things. But why bash the innocent child who has no power over who their parents are? A child who has done nothing wrong to anyone.”
There were also some positive posts on Twitter as well.
