Kourtney Kardashian is being mom-shamed for not tweezing her son's eyebrows!
The reality star's eight-year-old boy became the butt of jokes among mommy-shamers who clearly were not concerned about the child's age or the repercussion of their comments.
When celebrities become parents and indulge their fans with snapshots of their lives and family, many people think it to be an open invitation to comment on the star's life. When it comes to women and parenting, mom-shaming is one of the many things they have to deal with. But what happens when fans get too nit-picky? Even Kourtney Kardashian would not have expected this close criticism of her parenting style.
Recently, Scott Disick took to his Instagram to share a photo of him and his son Mason. The picture showed the father and son enjoying a nice outing together. While the photo was adorable, one thing that people could not keep their eyes off was Mason's eyebrows. Yes, you heard that right.
Scott captioned the sweet photo as "My Life". However, people were soon to pour water on it with their comments. "Need some waxing done there lol," one person commented. While another noted, "If the entire family life based on plastic surgeries and their appearance, how can they let this atrocity slip by." Some even used pretty harsh words as one comment read, "Ugly price of shit."
Another noted, "Omg his brows I'm screaming." Seeing the negative response a 12-year-old was getting, people were quick to respond with comments to defend the negative ones. "Both handsome guys. I see a father and son spending quality time together. Which is more than a lot of dads do? That's what should be noticed in this picture, not eyebrows," one noted.
Meanwhile, there were others who could not believe that grown-ups would write such hateful things about a small boy. "Beautiful & natural picture(the way it should be)!!! Those who are parent-shaming Kort for this should be absolutely ashamed of themselves!!!! Mason is only 8 years old & why should a little boy have to be tweezed, to make others happy!" another noted.
Adding, "He is clearly happy in this photo! People who do this kind of senseless shaming are the problem & this kind of ridiculous attitude is what causes children & teens to grow up with self-esteem issues! What if a 10, 11, 12, 13 or 14-year-old kid with a lot of brow hair saw these posts?! You don't think that after reading some of these comments that they themselves wouldn't feel embarrassed!?!?! If having a lot of eyebrows is what determines a person's character or face value or their parent's choices, then some of you should really look inward & do some self-analyzing cause that's just straight up messed up!"
Even though there were people who paid more attention to Mason's eyebrows, there were many more who only focused on the strong bond shared by the son and father. Another noted, "I'm literally effing disgusted at some of you. HE IS EIGHT YEARS OLD. Like, do you honestly feel better now that you made your crappy comment about this little guy? HE CAN READ. What if he were to read some of your shitty comments?! Do you not have children, friends, a heart? Probably the same ones saying how anti-bullying you are.....seriously, do you have nothing better to do with your time."
