Since confirming in December she’s expecting a baby, Khloé Kardashian has faced a lot of criticism about her pregnancy. First, it was that her baby bump was “too small.” Then, people accused her of injuring her baby by working out too much. Now, Kardashian’s in hot water again after her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, posted an Instagram photo of Khloé smoking.
The soon-to-be mom came under fire on Thursday because in the picture, Khloé Kardashian and her best friend, Malika Haqq, smoking while playing with wads of cash. Though it’s unclear what, exactly, Khloé is smoking, the picture definitely shows her blowing a stream of smoke out of her mouth while pretending to use a stack of dollar bills as a phone. “Shmoney moves,” Kourtney captioned the picture.
Immediately, Khloé Kardashian was lambasted by fans for smoking while pregnant. The commenters accused Kardashian — who is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson — of hurting her baby.
“You are pregnant and doing this kind of things don’t be surprised if your baby born unhealthy.”
“Girl you smoking while pregnant.”
“Khloe why you smoking? That’s really not a good thing when you get pregnant! You will hurt your baby!”
Of course, Kardashian’s defenders were quick to explain that the picture was likely a throwback. Considering that Haqq is currently competing on the U.K.’s Celebrity Big Brother, where she’s cut off from the outside world, it’s highly unlikely the picture was recent. “It’s an old picture seeing as though Malika is in Big Brother people will judge,” someone commented.
Plus, given how much research Kardashian put into seeing if she could even exercise while pregnant, you would think she would know better than to smoke. The pregnant-shaming trolls can take a seat now.
