Out of all the Kardashian-Jenners, Kourtney Kardashian is most likely to be mommy-shamed. When she’s not being criticized for kissing her children on the lips or giving her daughter a lip ring, she’s being shamed for not tweezing her son’s eyebrows. The latest mommy-shaming, in which someone suggested that Kourtney was more interested in showing off her bikini body than being a mom, is nothing new. But instead of ignoring the hate, this time, Kourtney fought back.
On Sunday, the 39-year-old reality star instagrammed a picture from her vacation in Portofino, Italy. The Instagram featured Kourtney in a bikini, eating a piece of foccacia bread while hanging out on a yacht. It didn’t take long for mommy-shamers to flood Kourtney’s comments with accusations that she was too busy ‘gramming herself in a bikini to know where her kids were.
However, instead of letting the comments roll off her shoulders, Kourtney clapped back. In a response to someone who asked “where are your kids,” Kourtney let the mommy-shamer know that her three children—Mason, 8; Penelope, 6; and Reign, 3—were all within an arm’s reach of her. In typical Kardashian fashion, Kourtney also sarcastically thanked the shamer for her “concern.”
“My son was taking the photo, and the other two were sitting at a table across from me. Thank you so much for your concern,” Kourtney responded.
From Victoria Beckham taking her 19-year-old son as a date to Jessica Biel allowing her 3-year-old son to grow out his hair, mommy-shaming is a serious issue that needs to stop, both for celeb and non-celeb moms. Fortunately, Kourtney was here to let the shamers know that mommy-shaming won’t be tolerated and she isn’t a mama to be messed with.
