Kim Kardashian shocked the internet when she posted an Instagram story of an extravagant painting created by her seven-year-old daughter North West. Some praised North’s artistic talent; others doubted she really created it, because the internet is the internet and the Kardashian family is the Kardashian family.
But Kardashian wasn’t having it. She went all out on her Instagram Stories, sharing receipts that yes, North created it, and North’s friend attended the same art class and made a similar piece. North’s father Kanye West was also a gifted artist as a kid, so the talent is in North’s genes. North has been painting since she was a baby, and the very first Mother’s Day gift she gave Kardashian was a painted Hermès purse. Then Kardashian spotlighted some of the critical tweets and articles, adding her own commentary like “FOH” (fuck out of here). She did hide the name of the users who posted them, as a courtesy.
In her first post, Kardashian made the very valid point that scrutinizing the work of a minor child and doing analysis over whether it’s really theirs or not is cruel to the child and not a good look for the person posting about it. She wrote:
DON’T PLAY WITH ME WHEN IT COMES TO MY CHILDREN!!!
My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured. North worked incredibly hard on her painting, which took several weeks to complete. AS a proud mom, I want to share her work with everyone. I’m seeing op-ed pieces in the media and social media from grown adults breaking down whether or not my child actually painted this! How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome!?!?! Please stop embarrassing yourselves with the negativity and allow every child to be GREAT!!! NORTH WEST PAINTED THAT PERDIOTDDDDDABCDEFGZFDT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Then she shared more Instagram Stories proving North’s art was made by North. Here are the most noteworthy (Kardashian posted more than 10):
She ultimately ended her posts by writing, “Shoutout to all the proud moms out there who love to show their baby’s masterpieces.”
