Kylie Jenner’s new chapter of motherhood has been the focus of tons of tongue-wagging for months. From keeping her baby news a secret for all nine months of her pregnancy to attending Coachella not long after giving birth, her personal decisions have lead to plenty of criticism. Now, new snaps from the 20-year-old posted yesterday, July 11, have people on social media buzzing, because they feature the debut of 5-month-old Stormi’s pierced ears.

Upon glimpsing of the infant’s tiny studs, some Twitter users shared their opposition.

Others pointed out that piercing children’s ears can be a cultural or religious tradition.

That said, Kylie is far from the first celeb to get heat for piercing her L.O.’s ears. Coco Austin was criticized for piercing her 2-month-old’s ears back in 2016. But on the flipside of the debate, Chrissy Teigen has spoken out and said that her daughter Luna will have the final say on whether/when she gets her ears pierced.

Clearly, this is one parenting debate that will continue to rage on.
