People Are Mad At Kylie Jenner For Piercing Baby Stormi's Ears
Ear we go.
Another day, another reason to be outraged at 20-year-old almost-billionaire Kylie Jenner!
This time, the young mum of Stormi Webster is facing online backlash for piercing her 5-month-old's ears.
The backlash began after Jenner posted some cute snuggling with Stormi on Snapchat, with many fans noticing the bling on her daughter's ears.
The short post comes just a month after Jenner removed any images of Stormi's face on social media, posting an image with her daughter's face all but cropped out. When a fan commented about it, Jenner simply replied: "Yeah I cut my baby out. I'm not sharing photos of my girl right now".
And it comes as no surprise, Kylie and half-sister/recent mum Khloé have both had to deal with people genuinely insulting their newborns on social media.
Despite the American Academy of Paediatrics saying cosmetic piercings can be performed at any age so long as the piercing is done carefully and looked after, many weighed in with their thoughts as to if it was appropriate.
Still there were many who came to the young Keeping Up With The Kardashians star's defence saying the practice was extremely common.
In Australia, you need parental permission or have a parent or guardian with you (depending on which state you're in) if you're under the age of 16 and would like a piercing.
Also, anything ~intimate~ that you want pierced you need to wait until you're over the age of 16, even if you have parental approval. Some states require you to be over 18.
It's interesting to note that prior to motherhood the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan was one of the most influential figures on social media.
It was rumoured that by simply tweeting "does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me.. ugh this is so sad" Jenner reportedly cost Snapchat's value to drop more than $1.3 billion.
During her pregnancy however, the social media mogul was rarely seen on any social sharing apps, and didn't officially reveal her pregnancy until after her daughter was born. Despite rumours that Jenner was going to release the news of her pregnancy or birth of her child in some immense reveal via one of their TV shows or exclusive story, the 20-year-old simply revealed she had kept things quiet for her own sake.
Releasing a statement via Instagram Jenner revealed her reasoning for not being more public with her pregnancy saying she wanted to do so in a stress-free environment.
"I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness."
