Kim Kardashian West has stepped up to defend her 7-year-old daughter North West after a photo of the child's oil painting sparked some debate online.
Earlier this week, Kim shared in an Instagram story how proud she was of her "little artist North," who had apparently made this very Bob Ross–esque painting.
Naturally, because this is the internet, there were...doubts.
And the doubts became jokes.
But it's safe to say Kim wasn't here for the skepticism, posting a series of Instagram stories on Tuesday night denouncing the "grown adults" who doubted North's artistic abilities.
"My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured," Kim wrote in one post.
"North worked incredibly hard on her painting which took several weeks to complete," she went on. "As a proud mom, I wanted to share her work with everyone.
"I'm seeing op-ed pieces in the media and social media from grown adults breaking down whether or not my child actually painted this. How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome?!"
The mother of four concluded: "Please stop embarrassing yourselves with the negativity and allow every child to be GREAT!!!"
Her story checks out. Back in 2019, Kim's friend Tracy Romulus posted a photo of her daughter Ryan — who is North's best friend — posing with her version of the painting.
It seems Ryan has been working at her oil painting skills ever since.
