Kim Kardashian has defended her seven-year-old daughter North after her painting drew criticism online.
Kardashian, 40, recently shared a landscape oil painting of nature and revealed her daughter was behind the impressive work. “My little artist North,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned her Instagram Story on February 8.
But fans didn’t believe the seven-year-old was behind the impressive artwork.
Today, Kardashian responded to the criticism with a lengthy post to her Instagram Story.
“Don’t play with me when it comes to my children,” Kardashian wrote. “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 wanted 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 !!!”
Since Kardashian shared the screenshot, many expressed their scepticism on Twitter.
“You’re telling me North West is out here drawing like she is Bob Ross.. and I’m over here still drawing stick figures at 25?!?” one Twitter user wrote.
“I’m supposed to work but I can’t stop thinking about how North West did not paint this,” another tweeted alongside a screenshot of the portrait.
