Why Does Kim Kardashian West Keep Getting Mom-Shamed? Sunday Service Lipstick Fiasco Sparks Latest Outcry

No one has ever said being a mom was easy, but being a mother in the age of social media means the world is watching and scrutinizing your every move. Kim Kardashian West is being mom-shamed once again, this time for allowing her eldest child North West to wear lipstick to church.

Kardashian West, 38, has been criticized on numerous occasions for her parenting style. There are instances where the criticism may have been somewhat justificedr, including when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and KKW Beauty mogul was spotted looking at her phone instead of tending to North when she tripped and fell. However, there are a number of occasions where Kardashian West has been mom-shamed unnecessarily.

Kardashian West Criticized for Using Surrogate

Kardashian West opted to use a surrogate to help carry her third child, Chicago West, a decision she was criticized for. She wrote a blog post via her now-pulled website in January 2018 about the experience. "Anyone who says or thinks it's the easy way out is completely wrong," she wrote. "People assume it's better because you don't have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me, it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint."

Kardashian West Accused of Waxing North's Eyebrows

Fans accused Kardashian West of waxing North's eyebrows in 2013, but the reality star used humor to tackle the backlash. "Do people really think I would wax my daughters eyebrows so young? Come on, I'd wait until she's at least 2 1/2," she tweeted.

In response to the criticism, she tweeted: "Bc she has a passion 4 fashion & we've given her the tools 2 explore that? Spending time w dad @work isn't bad either."
