If you poke Mama Bear, you might just get clawed. Just ask the troll who accused Khloe Kardashian of using True as an accessory — the reality TV personality clapped back in a big way over the idea that her relationship with her daughter is in any way for show. The exchange took place after Kardashian shared a photo of herself on vacation in the Bahamas with baby True “creating magical memories,” as she corrected the keyboard critic.
ICYMI, Kardashian has been documenting her Bahamian family vacation on social media over the last week, sharing everything from selfies to serene shots of the scenery. In one particular photo, Kardashian shared a sweet moment of her walking down the beach with True on her hip. It didn’t take long for a denizen of the internet to find fault with the photo, though. “U do know that your baby isn’t an accessory right?” trolled the commenter.
Kardashian was ready with a response. “Would you like a parent NOT to create memories and traditions with their child? Would you like someone else to watch my child and me to do these things on my own?” she asked, continuing, “I am her mother and we will celebrate life together everyday. True and I are creating magical memories TOGETHER FOREVER.”
While Kardashian is undoubtedly used to fending off negativity on her posts, perhaps she simply reached her threshold of tolerance for the week. After all, the Kardashian family seems to be having a rough go of it with the internet right now. In the comment thread of another vacation photo, critics accused Kardashian of imprinting “toxic diet culture” on her daughter.
In the snapshot, True and her cousin Chicago West sit with bags of Cheetos and Veggie Straws in their laps. Kardashian captioned the photo, “Chi: I heard my mama say ‘vacation calories don’t count.’ True responds: ‘Don’t tell me twice Chi.’” Kardashian meant the exchange as a joke, obviously, but the internet worried that perhaps this is the sort of potentially damaging rhetoric Kardashian will use around True as she gets older.
Kardashian’s sister Kourtney also came under fire, albeit for a somewhat mind-boggling reason. After sharing a series of photos of her with her kids on vacation in Idaho, Kourtney found herself being criticized for not working enough (we’re still scratching our heads over this one, TBH).
And her response to haters works equally well in her situation and her sister’s “accessory” debate: “As women, we should be supporting each other for what allows us to be our best, not being so critical and judgmental of each other. We all do things in our own way.”
