Met Gala 2023: Kim Kardashian faces backlash for leaving daughter North outside during red carpet appearance
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Kim Kardashian took her daughter, North West, to the 2023 Met Gala, but the reality TV queen walked the red carpet alone. While attending the greatest fashion event of the year may be an exciting experience for the little child, fans have mixed feelings about Kim leaving North alone.
North was seen standing alone outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a viral TikTok video while her famous mother posed for cameras just feet away at the event on Monday, May 1. "Wait, she's so overwhelmed. "She appears to be lost," a speaker is heard saying in the footage. "Kim just left north on the street," the user captioned. However, it should be emphasized that North was not alone as she appeared to be escorted by numerous handlers and security.

'It's all about Kim'
Following the viewing of the video, Internet users began to express their thoughts on the subject. "Seeing North being raised as a Kardashian breaks my heart," one commenter stated. "It's all about Kim," someone else said. Another added, "The cameras come second to the North. Very unfortunate."
Among the detractors was Megyn Kelly. Megyn chastized the SKIMS CEO for leaving her daughter behind when she paraded her stuff for photographers in a tight, form fitting gown dripping in pearls on the May 2 episode of SiriusXM's "The Megyn Kelly Show" podcast. "Like, is that what you want your daughter to see you doing?" Kelly stated.
"You want her to see you like basically wearing next to nothing, and parade to the Met Gala. Okay fine," she continued. Kelly went on to say, "I'm sorry, but it's gross. Some of us brought our kids to presidential debates and thought that might make a nice impression. I went to the Met Gala. I've been to these events. I don't take my kid."
'Put your cigarette away, you classless losers!'
Kelly later remembered witnessing "debauchery" when attending the Met Gala. "When I went [to the Met Gala], I went to the women's toilet to actually use the toilet," Kelly said. She added, "And it was all the Kardashians, and [Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs] was there, and it was like dry humping [in the ladies' room]. It was really gross and classless, and I thought, 'What am I doing here?' Models were smoking in the bathroom of The Met. Get out! Put your cigarette away, you classless losers!"
Despite the criticism, several fans defended Kim for attending this year's Met Gala with North, whom she shares with ex-husband Kanye West. "She has bodyguards!" "She is not alone, believe," one person said. "Y'all north is old [sic] enough to hang out by herself and she feels comfortable doing so because she has literally 5 bodyguards surrounding her lol," another wrote.
