Reality TV star Kim Kardashian faced severe backlash on social media after she posted photos of her family at Christmas. While numerous fans fawned over the adorable shots, some critics picked on young North's bright red lipstick.

Kim shared six images with Kanye and their three children (North, five, Saint, three and 11-month-old Chicago) as she took to social media to wish her fans a Merry Christmas. However, it was North, her eldest, who stole the spotlight but also attracted a fair share of critics, The Sun reports.

While the snaps set in a wintry backdrop were heartwarming, to say the least, some fans were not impressed with North being allowed to wear lipstick. "Why is a 4yr old child wearing red lipstick? [sic]" one user asked.

In fact, several Kardashian fans slammed Kim for letting North have her hair straightened for the images. "Enough with the makeup on that kid... She is beautiful with curls and no makeup. This makes her look like a little teen. Sorry to say," one wrote.

Another commenter said: "Stop straightening that lil girls hair" and another commented: "It affects young fans that look up to them and these young kids thinking that they also need to straighten their hair at such a young age. And thinking that curly hair doesn’t look good and it becomes an insecurity for them. Sometimes you should think about the effects things like this has on a young girls (and some boys) image in our society."

One concerned fan said: "Dang let North be a child! Don't let her be in hurry to be an adult, she will have plenty of time for that!"

While another said: "I am a big fan of the Kardashians but what you doing right now to your daughter is sad you not letting her grow up as a child she is now a mini teenager sad... lipstick really... what's wrong with lip gloss... you do anything to sell makeup."

Nonetheless, longtime supporters of Kim and Kanye came to their rescue and defended them, saying it was "just for fun."

"People complaining about her lipstick as if it’s not okay to let your child where a little bit just for fun," they wrote. "You can buy children’s make up sets too that I’m sure you would buy your children and not have an issue with - stop complaining just because it’s a Kardashian."

Another supporter commented: "Makeup or not, she's still a little girl. I recall myself at 5, trying on mom's lipstick and eyeshadows. Yet I was still playing with barbies and watching cartoons, enjoying my childhood. A little lipstick doesn't change anything about her innocence, it's called having fun."
