Kylie Jenner pierces five-month-old daughter Stormi's ears, Twitter stands divided on move
Five months into motherhood and Kylie Jenner continues to ruffle feathers over her parenting style. From keeping her pregnancy secret for all nine months to the latest — piercing baby Stormi's ears — Twitterati has not spared the 20-year-old.
In a Snapchat video that the Kardashian posted about a week ago, a silver stud was visible on her daughter's ear which took Twitter by storm. While some stood in favour of the young mother, others were not so accepting.
In certain cultures, it is common to pierce an infant's ears as a bunch of tweets pointed out.
In Nigeria babies literally get their ears pierced the day after they’re born and Kylie Jenner’s being slated for piercing her 5 month old daughter’s ears lmaooo it’s really not a big deal, people find everything to be mad about these days ♀️

Idk why Kylie Jenner is getting all this backlash about getting her baby girls ears pierced at 5 months old. Shittt Mexican moms pierce our ears like 2-3 months after we’re born lol

And one doesn't have to be a fan to stand by new parents.
this is so annoying. Yea I’m a judgy person (especially about the kardashian/Jenners) but stop insinuating that Kylie is a bad mother for piercing her baby’s ears at this age.
My pediatrician literally pierces ears at 5 months because that is when it is safe to do so. https://t.co/Vbu9RbHyky

Then there were others concerned about the pain that piercing would cause an infant.
Kylie Jenner sparks debate after piercing her 5 month old babies ears.
I hate seeing babies with ear piercings.
Unneeded pain & fear for the baby and serves no purpose but to satisfy the parents vanity.

Yeah I got a second set of piercings above my gauges and it hurt like a motherfucker. I could hear the skin pop because my skin was so thick there. A baby has soft skin.

Some wanted to take the baby's choice into question.
What if the baby didn’t want ear piercings? What if she grew up to hate them?

I grew up to hate mine, and now I have holes in my ears for the rest of my life over something I didn't even choose for myself. They're just holes, so not that serious, but if I did have the choice I would have never done it

And this one was just looking at the bigger picture.
We have a traitor in the White House, so I could really care less about Kylie Jenner and her baby!
Worry more about your country and less about reality personalities(she’s not a star)that really have no talent! https://t.co/XWrMGurAJt
