Wow. Some celebrity gossip really brings out the worst in people.
Rumours began fizzing over the weekend that 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is pregnant. Within two seconds tops, vicious judgement burst into flames. It was swift, fierce – and mean.
She’s reportedly four months pregnant with a baby girl.
She hasn’t even confirmed yet, why are people so judgey?
Blogger Perez Hilton went as far as filming a video to say that if he was Kris Jenner, Kylie’s mum, “I’d tell that girl to get an abortion.”
What a vile thing to say.
Why shouldn’t she have a baby?
Yes, she’s the youngest of her sisters but plenty of people have kids at her age.
If we’re really honest, many people put off having children due to financial concerns. If cash weren’t an issue, would many women choose to have children sooner? Probably, yes.
When you really look at the bigger picture, she’s in a great position to have a child. She’s already a multi-millionaire in her own right thanks to reality TV and a cosmetic range. She’s financially sorted for life, her business ventures are underway and ticking along, she has amazing family support and a hundred sisters who’ve done it all before. There is advice on tap and hand-me-downs a go-go.
We’ve watched the Kardashians on screen for ten years. Yes, ten. That perhaps explains why some feel like this is their business. But it’s not. This is a life decision that has no more to do with Wendy from Wagga than Perez from Judgeville.
