This is Khloe Kardashian’s response to people mum-shaming her long nails

When you’re in the public eye, everyone will weigh in on how you live your life – which is something Khloe Kardashian is altogether too familiar with.

The 34-year-old reality TV star is mother to her 10-month-old daughter True with basketballer Tristan Thompson, and her parenting style has recently come under fire after Kardashian posted a snap on Instagram of her fresh manicure.

If you take a look at the comment section, it really would seem like a lot of people are piling in on Kardashian’s long nails. Comments include: “How do you change a nappy without gouging out some skin?” or, “How on earth can you look after a baby with nails that long and hard” and, “Your nails are disgusting… I’ll bet there are all kinds nasty things under those nails!”

Even some who like her manicure have questions about her parenting, like the person who comments: “Pretty but how do you take care of a baby with those long nails?”

There are nearly 5,000 comments on the post but despite a fair amount of negative feedback, not everyone is against Kardashian. A lot of her fans are jumping to the star’s defence with comments like: “My nails are almost this long and I do EVERYTHING for my daughter just fine and dandy” and, “Why are women putting other women down for long nails? She has had long nails for years I’m sure she knows what she is doing.”

Kardashian even jumped into the fray, tweeting: “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.”

This isn’t the first time Kardashian’s parenting style has been scrutinised – she caused quite a stir online after piercing baby True’s ears.

As with nail-gate, many fans came to Khloe’s defence with this situation too.

That’s the harsh reality of being a mum in the public eye – it’s nearly impossible to win them all.
