Of all the Kardashian-Jenners, Kourtney Kardashian seems most likely to be mom-shamed. When she’s not being criticized for kissing her children on the lips or giving her daughter a lip ring, she’s being shamed for not tweezing her son’s eyebrows. The latest shaming, in which someone suggested Kardashian was more interested in showing off her bikini body than her motherly duties, is nothing new. But instead of ignoring the hate, this time, Kardashian clapped back.
On Sunday, Kardashian Instagrammed a picture from her vacation in Portofino, Italy. The photo featured Kardashian in a bikini eating a piece of focaccia bread while hanging out on a yacht. It didn’t take long for mom-shamers to flood Kardashian’s comments with accusations that she was too busy ‘gramming her bikini to know where her kids were.
However, instead of letting the comments roll off her shoulders, Kardashian clapped back. In a response to someone who asked, “Where are your kids,” Kardashian let the mom-shamer know that her three children — Mason, 8; Penelope, 6; and Reign, 3 — were all within arm’s reach. In typical Kardashian fashion, she also sarcastically thanked the shamer for her “concern.”
“My son was taking the photo, and the other two were sitting at a table across from me. Thank you so much for your concern,” Kardashian responded.
Mom-shaming for celebs and non-celebs alike needs to stop; just ask Victoria Beckham, who caught flak for taking her 19-year-old son as her date, or Jessica Biel, who was shamed for allowing her 3-year-old son to grow out his hair. Fortunately, Kardashian was here to let the shamers know that their attitude won’t be tolerated — and that she isn’t a mom to be messed with.
