Kim Kardashian Denies Waxing North West’s Eyebrows, But Doesn’t Rule Out Laser Hair Removal

North West Waxed Eyebrows December 16 2013

After Kim Kardashian posted a photo on Instagram of North West yesterday with perfectly sculpted eyebrows, the world exploded in outrage at the thought of Kim waxing her baby daughter’s eyebrows. Accusations flew left and allegations flew right and everyone who was anyone had an opinion on if her brows were natural or not. So many people weighed in on the controversy that there’s now no doubt in my mind that EyebrowGate 2K13 will go down in history of one of America’s biggest scandals. It will sit there right next to Jennifer Lawrence’s haircut and Iggy Azalea’s vagina lips on the list of things we didn’t discuss in enough depth. (“If only we’d talked more about the important issues,” you’ll say on your death bed, “if only I’d written another Facebook status about those eyebrows, I would’ve contributed so much more to the world!”)

While this amount of scrutiny certainly seems scary for a baby, it’s only a look into Nori’s future as Kimye’s child. Heaven forbid her eyebrows turn out not to be her best feature! I fear for her life as a teenager, being publicly accused of having chin implants or eyeball polishing treatments or spa manicures or whatever it is that people get done these days to look more beautiful.

Naturally Kim’s denying the accusations. Because to come out and confirm them would be to sentence herself to death. Like I said yesterday, I do think Kanye West, her beloved fiance, would murder her if he found out she touched one hair on that baby’s face.

 

In light of everything that happened yesterday, I do find her joke to be in extremely poor taste. A classic case of #toosoon. With that said, I will say that I believe her. Not because she tweeted denials, but because I have to believe that human beings know it’s not a good idea to put hot wax on a baby’s face. On behalf of the future of humanity, I just have to believe that we haven’t crossed that line yet.

    Maybe its one of those dolls cause kanye refuses to let her post photos of the real baby

      Wouldn’t it be crazy if they had a stunt baby and we never knew what the kid really looked like!?!

    • Kate McGarry

      Now that Kris’ talk show has been cancelled, we’ll never meet the real North West and that, my friends, is a tragedy of epic proportions

    • Jenni

      If Kris gets her requested present from Satan this year, she’ll have a full year contract with a TV show. Just wait.

      RIGHT? Mind = Blown

    I think we can all agree that the idea of dripping hot wax on a baby is crazy, but I do feel bad whenever I see a school aged kid with a quite noticeable monobrow, if I was their parent I’d be tempted to use hair removal cream on them or something because I know how cruel other kids can be.

    • Jenni

      …I know. It’s hard. Wax is just so very painful. Maybe threading?

      A friend of mine’s mom took her at age 10 to get her unibrow waxed. The problem was that my friend didn’t have a problem with it, and hadn’t been teased as far as she knew….it was just that her mom didn’t like it. So that bugs me, because it wasn’t coming from her or the result of anything that actually happened, just that her mom didn’t like the way it looked.

      Same thing happened to me when I was twelve! My mom took me to get electrolysis. I think she even gave it to me as a Christmas present, although I definitely didn’t ask for it.

      See, THAT is so not cool. It’s paramount to telling your child her appearance is inadequate as though she’s somehow failed to please you, in a way that is totally beyond her control. Granted, I’m 23 and my mom has no problem saying “Gee, why don’t you just put on a touch of mascara… it really works wonders!” Granted, I’m pregnant with a toddler so I imagine I look pretty similar to a zombie on most days. On the other hand, I am too tired to care!

      I am Arab and can probably grow a beard better than my husband (non-Arab). I think about this a LOT. For me, the second my child came to me and asked about it, I would offer her options to take care of it. I refuse to do anything before or without them actually bringing it up to me.

  • Janok Place

    The baby looks happy and unharmed. God knows what she did or didn’t do… but really, I see no third degree burns. No tears. No redness. The child is fine, everyone chill out.

    Might just be photoshop for all you know.. But it does look like it’s been combed and styled (maybe even filled) especially when you look at the previous pics.. (or maybe I’m just jealous cause I have eyebrows that make me look like Mona Lisa) Baby North has beautiful black eyes!!

    I actually thought her joke was surprisingly funny, especially for a Kardashian. Did anyone genuinely think she did this?
