Why Kim Kardashian Got Serious Backlash For Her Mother's Day Tribute To Kris Jenner

Another day, another drama for Kim Kardashian. It seems the mom of four shared a Mother's Day tribute to Kris Jenner on Instagram and some people were not fans. In fact, many outlets like BuzzFeed are reporting the reality star has received a major backlash in the wake of posting what was supposed to be a story about how amazing Jenner is. It seems the second eldest daughter of reality television's first family may have missed the mark on this one!

"This is an early Mother's Day post for my mom! The best mom in the entire world!" Kardashian captioned her post to her 169 million followers. She went on to explain the gift for Jenner was an album with photos from her wedding to Robert Kardashian. "She never had those photos so to see them brought out so many happy tears! Happy Mother's Day mom I love you beyond!" Kardashian wrote in the caption.

But it's the first photo in the post that everyone is talking about. As Kardashian writes to Jenner, the image of her "in the bikini after you gave birth to Rob is MAJOR GOALS!!! Always in everything you do!!!!!"

People think Kim Kardashian's Mother's Day post for Kris Jenner is super shallow

Many commenters to Kardashian's post supported the star's efforts and went on to praise Jenner's bod post-baby. Others noted the sentiment seemed a little, well, off. Especially given the current climate of the world facing, you know, a pandemic!

"Being skinny is not goals," said one commenter. "So shallow and empty," another wrote. Many commenters were scratching their heads as well that Kardashian chose to gift her mom with a wedding album from a union that ended in divorce, suggesting this present was more about her, than her mom. 

As In Style notes, Kardashian's Mother's Day post may have been off-putting to fans because of the star's past record of making potentially-dangerous comments about body image. And again, since many people are facing a very stark reality given COVID-19, this photo of Jenner may admittedly be poorly timed. 

In the end, it must be said Jenner does look great. And there's no doubt the love is there between mom and daughter, even if how Kardashian chose to show it is not what other people would have done themselves.
