North West, 9, arrives at 2023 Met Gala- but fans slam mom Kim Kardashian for 'dragging' young daughter to 'adult' event | The Sun
KIM Kardashian has left fans raging after she arrived at the 2023 Met Gala with her daughter North West.
Fans slammed the star for "dragging" the nine-year-old to the huge fashion event.
The 42-year-old attended the event in New York City and quickly turned heads as she appeared- according to fans- to pay tribute to a look she rocked on the pages of Playboy back in 2007.
The Hulu star wore a barely-there ensemble in an outfit made almost entirely of strands of pearls.
However, Kim was not alone as her date was none other than her eldest child, North, who also joined her on the white carpet.
The young star had on a chic tweed blazer over a white top which she accessorized with a pearl necklace not dissimilar to the ones adorning her famous mom's look.
She kept it casual on the bottom, rocking baggy jeans and chunky black boots.
North's hair was styled in a sleek half-up, half-down style, and she also appeared to be carrying a purse that looked like a massive pearl.
Despite the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum bringing her daughter along, not everyone was on board with her decision.
"… It’s so sad. It’s an 18+ event for a reason, children don’t need to be at a very public event where they are put out there for criticism and hate," one critic wrote on a Kardashians thread.

Another added: "How pathetic. They brought their children along as if it’s shields them from criticism…"
One person said: "Bringing your children to an event that is notorious for being terrible long lineups and being extremely warm."
"This is really sad… let kids be kids," another user reacted as one added: "Oh I don’t like this, I really don’t like this."
Kim was not the only Kardashian member to attend the event as her sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner were also at hand- the latter going pantless in a black latex thong.
This is not the first time that Kim has received backlash for her parenting decisions.
Recently, Rolling Stone named North one of the most influential creators on its Top 20 list.
The publication stated: "While she shares the account with her uber-famous mom, North’s innate star power screams through her haphazardly edited videos — suggesting that the ability to influence might just be genetic."
Hours before the Met Gala, the mom-of-four shared an image of North from the listicle and captioned the post: "Thank you, Rolling Stone, for picking North."
In an online thread, critics ranted how the star is pushing her young child to "grow up fast" and become "mature for adults."
"This is icky. North is just nine years old … Is anyone actually watching her on social media besides adults?" one person wrote at the same time.
A second mentioned: "It's profit over children. Kim, let your girl be a child!"
Earlier this month, Kim was photographed restraining North in the car at a basketball game, stirring chatter from onlookers.
In photos obtained by The U.S. Sun, North appeared to lose her cool after a game.
She was seen leaving the Thousand Oaks, California, arena with Kim by her side.
Suddenly North appeared to get upset about something.
The Skims founder appeared to just let it play out, as she continued to make her way to the car.
