Kim North West Piercing: Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Take Heat For Getting North’s Ears Pierced

Kanye and Kim are facing backlash after North West’s ear piercing. According to Mail Online, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian had their daughter’s ears pierced ahead of her first birthday. People have responded to the news with very harsh words, one person even calling the act “cruel and tacky.”

Many feel as though the little girl is “far too young” to have her ears pierced, and that her parents should have waited until she was old enough to make her own decision about putting holes in her body.

Surely, North West’s diamond studs don’t help the backlash against her parents, either. This little girl has nothing but the finest (and why shouldn’t she?). The toddler has been spotted wearing some of the most precious outfits, all costing a fortune and there has been plenty of controversy surrounding that, as well.

According to The Inquisitr, North is almost always wearing some designer piece — and someone almost always has something to say about it.

Kim’s decision to have North West’s ears pierced is one that many parents make when their children are young. There are plenty of people in the world that will tell you that getting a baby’s ear pierced isn’t really a big deal. Everyone has an opinion on everything, and if it wasn’t North’s ear piercings, it would undoubtedly be something else.

Several other celebrities have gotten their babies’ ears pierced, and while people may not agree with it, there isn’t nearly as much talk about it after the fact. Since people love to hate on Kim and her husband, Kanye West, the floodgates have officially opened.

According to Today, people have been posting their reactions to North West’s new studs on Twitter. A lot of people don’t have many nice things to say about the child’s new bling — but that’s their prerogative, right?

Here are the two ways that people are looking at this:

Kim Kardashian appears to have pierced her baby’s ears. Said it before & I’ll say it again, piercing a baby’s ears is disgusting & cruel.
