Khloé Kardashian Shuts Down Mom-Shaming Critics Who Slammed Her Long Nails
Khloé Kardashian dismissed critics who tried to mommy shame her for keeping her nails long and manicured post-baby. Her comeback logic was undeniable.
The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star showed fans how she does her daily makeup while having a toddler, little True Thompson, in her life.
Appearing in a Vogue Beauty Secrets video on YouTube, the 35-year-old held up her daughter whom she shares with basketball star and ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
After smothering her with kisses and putting True back down, Khloé began her tutorial. At one point she noted, "I've always had long nails. I've had long nails for 100 years. I'm a long nail type of girl."
That's when she mentioned the critics: "Everyone told me, 'When you have a baby you have to have short nails. This is gross. You can't take care of your child.' "
Yet Khloé seems to have it covered and easily countered the argument saying "If I can wipe my own [butt], I can wipe my child's [butt]! I mean I'm actually looking at hers. So, it's a lot easier."
And that was that. Back in January, the mom and entrepreneur shut down similar negative feedback in a dismissive tweet which read:
"It's annoying when people talk about my nails. Trust me, I manage just fine. The same way I take care of myself, I take care of my baby. There are more serious things to discuss. At least I would hope. happy Monday to you."
It’s annoying when people talk about my nails. Trust me, I manage just fine. The same way I take care of myself, I take care of my baby. There are more serious things to discuss. At least I would hope. 🙄 happy Monday to you— Khloé (@khloekardashian) February 18, 2019
People would write things like, "how do you wipe yourself properly," underneath photos of the reality star's lengthy artificial nails. One person outright said, "Nails are to long!"
Khloé's daughter is already 15 months, and the famous mom couldn't help but hide her awe at how quickly the time went by when True's birthday came around back in April.
In anticipation, she tweeted that she was "having anxiety thinking True will be one on Friday?!?!" She pretended she was crying and asked someone to bring her some tissue for her tears.
Is it weird that I think I’m having anxiety thinking True will be one on Friday?!?! 😩😩 I’m sad Time is flying as fast as it is. I’ll be happy, of course, I simply can’t understand where the time goes. Thank you Lord for every moment 🙏🏽💕 bring me the tissue 😢— Khloé (@khloekardashian) April 11, 2019
Later, Khloé jokingly asked if we can slow down time after describing the one-year landmark as "scary and sad." Of course, she was still happy to celebrate and eventually called the first year with her daughter "amazing."
