Readers react to Kim Kardashian West’s racy photo

“This family needs serious help.” “It’s so sad for a person to have to repeatedly release nude, and partial nude photos and videos of themselves.” Kim Kardashian’s latest controversial photo has sparked major backlash and scrutiny on her parenting. Indeed, she’s not winning any Newsroom popularity contests.

At issue isn’t so much the sexy shot but who took it: Kardashian’s 4-year-old daughter, North West. In the image, we see Mrs. Kanye West covering her chest while wearing an unclasped bra and black spandex leggings ... with her little shutterbug North just behind her. Kim’s no stranger to revealing selfies (“I don’t get this family’s obsession with their bodies,” as one commenter writes), but now that the next generation’s involved, reactions are getting especially heated. She hasn’t clapped back yet, but it’s only a matter of time.

This all comes on the heels of another controversial Kim pic: Last month, she was accused of cultural appropriation when she showed off her Bo Derek-inspired braids.
