Why Kim Kardashian cropped North out of her selfie

Kim's decision to cut her toddler out of her Instagram picture created a social media furore


In the world of social media, cropping a friend out of your picture is pretty harsh. So imagine the uproar when Kim Kardashian cropped out her own daughter on Instagram?!


Fans of North West were up in arms over the unceremonious crop. Will the reality star stop at nothing in the pursuit of the perfect selfie, they asked. And so the 34-year-old was forced to respond.

“Wait, is this really news that I posted a selfie and cropped my daughter out? LOL,” she tweeted. “Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!'”


We have to admit we find the whole thing pretty funny. At least the 18-month-old is learning about taking take selfies from the best!

The controversial selfie was taken on a family night out to Disney On Ice with North’s cousins Mason, 5 and Penelope, 2. But little North wasn’t cropped out of all pictures from the night and other shots show her holding hands with her cousin Penelope. They’re both wearing mini Dr Marten boots – how sweet!

“This was an adventure! Try getting 5 kids to look and smile #DisneyOnIce
