Here's the kicker that sent everyone tweeting like people possessed.
They’re employing a surrogate to carry the child.
Some people think the headline "Kim is pregnant!" is a little misleading.
She’s the mom, but not carrying the baby.
Unfortunately, this is the type of shaming that we’ve grown accustomed to on social media.
Even distant observers feel there’s a “right” and “wrong” way to raise a child.
Still, others found that the announcement was suspiciously timed in the wake of ANOTHER big royal pregnancy development.
People really will latch on to any scandal possible when it comes to the Kardashians, and while this comment was meant as a throwaway joke, it speaks to how the public treats a woman expecting a child who they deem to be in the “public domain.”
Others are throwing shade at the surrogate news with some clever wording.
It’s not Kim, it’s “Kanye’s surrogate.” No one speaks out on Twitter saying, “I’m mom-shaming you!” but that’s exactly what we’re dealing with here.
However, surrogate advocacy and support groups were quick to jump to the defense of the maligned celeb.
There are many reasons to opt for a surrogate pregnancy, but the ones who know firsthand aren’t about to speak up and throw themselves in the midst of a Kim Kardashian Twitter controversy.
So the louder, more negative side tends to “win” on social media. Or, more specifically, they tend to run unopposed as celebs don’t want to stoop to engaging the haters and others tend to leave personal matters just that…personal.
