Kylie Jenner Is Being Mommy-Shamed for the Most Unexpected Reason
Kylie Jenner has only been a mom for roughly four weeks, but already, she’s being mommy-shamed. Unlike Hollywood moms before her, however, who faced flack over everything from breastfeeding choices (*cough, cough, Whitney Port) to the way they hold their little ones (Julia Stiles), the 20-year-old is catching heat for a *seriously* unexpected reason.
After the Life of Kylie star shared new pics on Instagram to celebrate her babe’s one-month old anniversary, trolls instantly zeroed in on one very particular detail in the photo: her nails.
Her lengthy tips were an issue for some, who called her parenting skills into question over the extended look, suggesting that she wouldn’t be able to change a diaper and that she might scratch her child’s face.
“I want to know how Kylie Jenner changes her babe’s diaper with two-inch nails and I struggle not getting poo under my millimeter nails,” one Instagram user reportedly commented, with another chiming in to say, “How the eff does @kyliejenner wear such long nails with a newborn? I can’t even go without scratching my own face!”
don't wanna be a bitch but the length of kylie jenner's nails tells me all i need to know about her parenting/lack thereof

There were plenty more, however, who came to her defense, pointing out that the length of one’s nails has absolutely nothing to do with one’s capabilities as a mother and that many moms opt for long nails over short ones.
