Kim Kardashian is getting slammed for doing something with her eldest daughter that honestly seems it would be so innocuous looking back. What is it? Well, she straightened five-year-old North West's hair.
North's new hairstyle was spotted
Honestly, this girl's really rocking the ponytail and straight hair! Hello, Ariana Grande? But, of course, critics took to social media to criticize Kim's decision in straightening her little girl's hair.
Am I the only person fuuummin that North West has straight hair???— heather quinn (@no1_quinn) June 15, 2018
Some critics pointed out there's no need to straighten her hair because it's a new "era." Umm... okay?
North West is still a baby and has straight hair. I know we all had straight hair too at that age but it’s 2018! The enlightened YouTube era! Come on KimberYe get it together— Tiss’Challa (@NaturallyTiss) June 15, 2018
I think the point many critics came back to was worry over the heat damage done to North's hair as a result of getting it pin straight from her natural curls.
I hope North West doesn't get a lot of heat damage to her hair while she's young...— ★ (@in30seconds) June 14, 2018
However, of course, there's the defense that North's hair is fine and probably just done for her birthday.
Maybe the child asked for it for her birthday. And it is, in fact, @KimKardashian’s daughter and her choice. Not sure why so much is being made of it.— Tina McKinney (@tinadmckinney) June 15, 2018
Even people who weren't Kardashian fans were firing back at the critics, pointing out that Kim's daughter could've wanted the look.

Def not a @KimKardashian fan, but if yall dont myob on this crap! That is HER daughter & more than likely the case, that baby wanted her hair like that for her party. https://t.co/12AiNndt1a via @YahooLifestyle
Yep, there's a lot of defense coming from the non-fans, and some who do understand the want to change from curly to straight for an event.
I am not part of the Kardashian fandom but really, society? She can style her kid's hair however she wants. Maybe North wanted straight hair for her birthday. As a curly hair girl, I get it. Do you and yours, @KimKardashian #HatersGonnaHate— Angela Magner (@FireChkn00) June 16, 2018
She looks cute! You do you, girl!
