Khloe Kardashian chose to be kind after receiving backlash for buying her daughter a toy Bentley.
The 35-year-old posted a video on Instagram of her 14-month-old daughter True riding around in the sparkly toy car over the weekend, People reports.
She captioned the post:
I have so much fun with her
The words “Luxury Kids Car Club” can be seen on the windshield of the pink vehicle. While most viewers commented on how cute the toddler is, one user was not a fan of the flashy toy.
The commenter wrote:
Great, another Kardashian in a Bentley. You guys are so oblivious to how your excessive spending looks to the outside world. I really loved your family’s story and now just can’t bare to watch as you spend all this money on worthless materialism. It’s so sad.
The comment has since gained over 1,000 likes and caught the attention of Kardashian herself.
The mom replied:
“Ummm you know this is not a real Bentley? It’s a toy. No reason to be sad over a baby in a toy car. Either way I’m sorry you feel that way but I hope you have a great weekend! Focus on things that make you happy! Smile.”
Other fans applauded Kardashian for taking the “high road” when it came to her response, even the critic himself.
The user replied back :
Appreciate your responding…Just figured it’s something to be thinking about. You’ve had so much influence and know you’ve had an impact on so many. Always ways we can improve as people, though– myself 100% included.
After reading the second message, Kardashian stated that she appreciated his second comment more than his first.
She added that while she doesn’t have anything to prove, she doesn’t feel like all her family does is waste money on material items. The reality star replied:
What I can say is that I’m able to look myself in the mirror and sleep at night. I’m able to do that because I know I’m a good person and life is all about balance. Yes, I do choose to spoil my daughter. I want to spoil her with love as well [as] with material items. She will be also raised with values, responsibilities, chores, respect, self love. We all work hard and we are able to spend our money in the way that we choose. I hope that’s what comes across to”the outside world,” to lead with love above everything else.
Fans applauded the mom’s calm response that has since received over 27,000 likes.
