Being in the public eye often means being targeted by trolls about anything from how you look to what you eat. And while the Kardashians are certainly no strangers to online criticism, it’s one of their youngest family members who is currently, and rather cruelly, under attack.
A selfie shared by proud papa Disick is fetching nasty comments about the boy’s brows.
“Wax Manson’s unibrow,” one troll wrote, while others — most of whom had their own profiles set to private — made comments like “give the boy a tweezer” and “kid needs to thread those brows.” One troll even said the grade-schooler looked like an “ISIS terrorist.”
The outrageous taunts were shot down by many commenters, who were horrified that someone so young would be a target of vitriol. And as several Kardashian fans pointed out, the family would no doubt spark major backlash if they groomed a child’s brows at that age.
“The people who are saying to wax his eyebrows be the same people that accused Kim [Kardashian] of child abuse because [her daughter] North’s eyebrows were ‘waxed,'” noted one commenter.
“Wow what a cutie,” a fan wrote. “Shame on these adults on here talking about a child’s eyebrows … please go look at your kids! If his brows were done [people] would still have something to say. He is a CHILD. It’s a shame that adults are the biggest bullies. How can it stop when that’s what you teach your children? Leave him alone.”
“I give them props for not making him get waxed or something at this age!” read another comment. “He’s still so young. Way to go, Mason! You’re the best!”
The upshot is that brow-shaming and/or bullying a kid is never acceptable.
