The internet is a weird place. One day the world is praising Kylie Jenner for becoming the youngest self-made billionaire, the next day it’s questioning her motherhood skills. Kylie has come under severe criticism for a video she posted on social media of herself with five-month-old daughter Stormi. While the baby looks adorable, the internet had eyes for just one thing.
Stormi’s left ear faces the camera and a tiny stud can be seen on her. Fans were furious that Kylie chose to pierce her child’s ear while she’s still an infant. There is a debate over whether her decision was a right now and there are equal supporters on either side. Earlier this month, fans also noticed Khloe Kardashian's newborn, True Thompson appeared to be wearing earrings.
Though it’s quite a debated topic around the globe, infant ear-piercing is a common practice in many cultures which includes Latin, Indian, African and Middle Eastern heritage. It’s also seen as a rite of passage, similar to baptism for families of the Catholic faith.
