Kim Kardashian’s momma bear is coming out to rake her claws across the Internet’s face after some people questioned whether or not her seven-year-old daughter North can really paint like Bob Ross.
Kim K shared a photo of a landscape painting she claimed was painted by North, and it really is impressive.
“My little artist North,” she wrote.
She wasn’t cooing for long. People—and media outlets—either outright questioned whether a child that age would be capable of painting something so good, or heavily implied it.
Soon, Kim was posting on Instagram again. This time, she was coming for her critics.
“Don’t play with me when it comes to my children!!!” Kim wrote on her stories. “My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured.
North worked incredibly hard on her painting which took several weeks to complete. 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!?!?!”
She also shared examples of Kanye West’s art from his childhood, implying the skill is genetic:
Surprisingly, someone outside the family defended North as well. TikTok user @camrynfred claims her mother is North’s art teacher.
“I actually can’t believe right now that I am being put in the position where I am probably one of the only people in the world who has evidence to prove that Kim is not lying, but here you go,” she said, then shared a pic she did herself under her mom’s tutelage that looks a lot like North’s.
“She’s been an art teacher for 30 years and everyone that comes through her classes goes through this exact same painting when they’re starting out,” @camrynfred says.
The tide has turned, and now people are mostly believing that North’s painting is really hers. They’re mostly astounded by what’s possible for kids who have all the money and support in the world:
With time and money a little bit of talent can turn into big accomplishments. Let’s see how she’s painting as a teenager.
