Kourtney Kardashian is being slammed this week after she posted a Fourth of July photo with her daughter, Penelope. While the picture itself is nothing more than a mother holding an American flag while her daughter looks on, people are completely outraged. Why? Because Penelope — who turns three tomorrow — has a pacifier in her mouth. According to Fish Wrapper, people have been voicing their opinions on Kourtney’s parenting, and many are in disbelief that the toddler is sucking on a pacifier.
“There are already people on her page calling her parenting choices into question, as well as those of the rest of the family, calling this ‘gross’ and using all sorts of specialized emoticons.”
Kourtney Kardashian hasn’t responded to the criticism, and she likely isn’t going to. As Fish Wrapper points out, there are no details on how often Penelope uses a pacifier or what she uses it for (to soothe, sleep etc.), but people can’t seem to stop voicing their opinions anyway.
Yooooo @kourtneykardash Penelope is too damn big for that pacifier!

And, of course, there are people out there who are defending Kourtney.
Everyone’s moaning that @kourtneykardash lets Penelope have a pacifier, I thought Kourtney was her mother not everyone else!

Perhaps this is the least of Kourtney Kardashian’s worries at this time as she reportedly just dumped her longtime beau, Scott Disick. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kourtney has had enough of Scott’s partying, so she decided to put her foot down. He reportedly hasn’t been to her home in Calabasas in over a month.
According to People Magazine, sources say that Kourtney had to make the best decision for her and for the couple’s three kids.
“She was over dealing with his constant lies and addictions. It was becoming a poor environment for the kids to be raised in and she refused to let that be the case,” said a source close to Kourtney.
“He acts out, he rebels, he drinks too much and he embarrasses her. He just rebels against the crazy responsibility of having three kids and makes Kourtney do it all. Kourtney is willing to sacrifice her relationship with Scott in order to keep [her kids] safe. Her children are her first priority. She needs to protect herself and her family, so she knows this is the right decision,” said another source.
