Kim Kardashian – who is no stranger to being mommy-shamed – has once again angered the internet, this time for straightening daughter North West’s hair.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

The five-year-old was spotted rocking a sleek, straight Ariana Grande style ponytail while out and about in New York… and the internet had a lot to say about it.

Critics were particularly confused over Kim K’s choices, as the reality TV star turned global businesswoman spoke of how proud she and North are of her naturally curly hair, and how hard they try to embrace it.

Kim even famously took hair styling lessons to learn how to braid black hair and how to style her daughter’s naturally curly locks…

"She’s obsessed with her curly hair, and if she finds someone who has the same hair, she runs to them and is like, 'You have curly hair like me?' And we get to talk about it,” she previously told Interview magazine.

The race aspect

The thing is, there is a racial aspect to all this.

We have all heard of the European beauty standards. Even at workplaces, black hair has been considered "unprofessional and unkempt". So some people have been forced to straighten their hair so that they don't suffer consequences that come with it.

Looking at it that way, people might argue that Kim is trying to make the child look more white. That way, she can get to enjoy the privileges that come with being white.

Cue the social media criticism…

I really hate how the kardashians keep straightening that poor baby’s hair tho. North west gonna have heat damage before she’s 10- before I even knew what a straightener was smh

Tiss’Challa @NaturallyTiss

North West is still a baby and has straight hair. I know we all had straight hair too at that age but it’s 2018! The enlightened YouTube era! Come on KimberYe get it together

@Chibambo

People going on about how “f**king gorgeous” North West is now that her hair has been straightened.

As always, there has also been a lot of support for Kim Kardashian and her parenting choices too…

@KIMWESTSOURCE_

Kim has taken such good care of North’s curls over the years. The comments about North’s hair being straightened is tired. First of all, mind your own children

@TameeraC_

North West with straight hair, so cute! she looks like. Different person

Where do you guys stand on the North West straight hair drama?

    I'll be glad when this nasty, talentless whore goes away. Her and her psychotic husband. What has she done besides sleep with everyone to become famous???? And Kanye ! Man please! Sacrificed his mom, wore a dress on stage, stated " I sold my soul to the devil", made a song with artist " The Game" called " wouldn't get far" about tramps and how's but then turns around and marrys one.........

    Kim K got Trump to set a black woman free the other week. And she's trying to get a black man's case reviewed who she believes could be innocent. She's putting in work, so in my humble opinion she can straighten her kid's hair if she wants. I don't see none of y'all complaining about how Meghan Markle straightened her hair from what it used to look like.

    Who really cares? It's her child and they can do whatever they want to to her hair. If people would worry more about homeless veterans more than celebrities hair or fashion this country would be a better place.

    I thought it was an age thing. My mother told me you shouldn't straighten ( hot comb) a chld's hair until they were 8 or 9 to avoid damage. Even then, not that often. Whatever, people always want to fuss about something, and it's usually none of their business. I think my daughter was 12 the first time her hair was hard pressed.

    1. Who really cares??? 2. Kim has already expressed how she and her daughter have embraced her natural curls. Kim straightening her daughters hair is just simply a versatility in style as majority WOMEN, GIRLS, FASHIONISTAS do. Please get over it. Next topic: any suggestions to solving world hunger???

      It’s funny how you liberals make a sneak attack and then block the person from being able to reply to you. Butthurt much? I was going to message you to ask how I am “miserable” but you made sure I couldn’t do that. Typical leftist actions. Run to your “safe space” after talking sh*t. LMFAO!!!

        I blocked you because I don’t want dejected, insufferable, race-fetishizing blabber mouths like you bothering me. You could possibly spread your affliction. I’m good, luv. Enjoy!

        Actually, I’m not a “leftist” or “lunatic”. Don’t be so appalled. I doubt I’m the first woman to avoid you at all costs.

        Besides, the way you rant and rave on here liberalism is the least of your worries. This is a dating site. Not Breitbart. Seek help.

      You’re just butthurt because you’re a liberal and you can’t handle truth. You liberals do NOT like FACTS. And FACT is that black women wear weave and no one tells them they are “culturally appropriating”. Personally, I don’t give a flying sh*t what anyone does with their hair, but YOU and your mentally ill fellow liberals want to spend your lives crying about EVERYTHING!!!! You are the “miserable” one. And please own up to the FACT that you are already infected. It’s called “liberalism”. The red pill will cure you. I promise.

    Now Kim gets a taste of what the liberal left is really all about. While so many black women wear “hair hats” (weaves) or even straightening their own hair with flat irons and hair grease to make themselves appear as if they have hair like a white, Latin or Asian woman, the “race appropriation” crying liberals only attack other non-blacks for doing something similar. If Kim was a black woman, no one would be saying anything about how she styles her own child’s hair. Gotta love them hypocrites...I mean liberals.
