Khloé Kardashian Sparks Outrage for Smoking in Photo
"How could you do that to your baby?"
Mom Gone Wild
Khloé Kardashian hasn’t even given birth yet and she’s already facing backlash from mom-shamers.
The pregnant reality star just sparked major outrage from critics after her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, shared a photo of the 33-year-old smoking while partying with best friend Malika Haqq at what appeared to be a strip club. Clad in a panama hat and black bodysuit, Khloé can be seen holding up a stack of dollar bills as she blew smoke out of her mouth in the photo.
Kourtney captioned the pic, “shmoney moves.”
Though it was obvious to some fans that the snap was a throwback from a time before the Revenge Body host was pregnant, many failed to get the joke and began lashing out. As Khloé had just confirmed she’s officially six months pregnant with boyfriend boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s baby, followers began filling the comments section with angry criticism about the expectant mom smoking.
“Smoking while pregnant. I dont expect anything more from a trashy selfish kardash,” @tarajaackson wrote.
Meanwhile, @meow5x simply pointed out, “Shes smoking and pregnant………..”
“Is she smoking and pregnant???,” @bbootes13 asked.
In fact, the public outcry got so bad that user @chippies_world even went as so far as to accuse Khloé of putting her unborn child in danger by smoking, writing:
“Your baby isn’t yet properly developed. He/she is waiting to see you, hoping for your unconditional love. That includes protecting him/her from harm of any kind. To actually smoke while you’re pregnant is child abuse. Plain and simple. Child abuse. How could you do that to your baby? Your poor, defenceless little baby who you’re meant to love and protect more than anything else in the world?! So sad to see.”
Of course, anyone who closely follows the Kardashians — like, really follow them — would know the picture is an old one. Some eagle-eyed fans pointed out in their defense that Khloé — who was last seen this week in California showing off her budding belly during a family lunch — has been styling her hair differently these days. Others argued that the Good American denim designer is not pregnant in the shot as her growing baby bump also cannot be seen.
“It’s an old photo. i’m pretty sure khloe isn’t dumb and careless enough to smoke while she’s carrying a baby,” @cinismymom chimed in.
“The people commenting about her smoking while pregnant need to check themselves. It’s a f**king throwback. Get over your hater selves,” @angel_eyes_tell_me_lies fired back.
As pal Malika has been prohibited from using the internet or having contact with outside world as a part of her current stint on Celebrity Big Brother in the U.K, it’s also highly impossible the 34-year-old would be back stateside hitting the clubs with her pregnant BFF.
