First let's start with Khloé's original post.
True is sitting in the toy car looking all kinds of adorable. She seems mesmerized. Note that the little lady is wearing her seat belt. Well done!
Now, details about the car.
The car is made by a company called Luxury Kids Cars Club, which sells what it calls "ultra exclusive cars for kids." The starter package price for the model that True has is $1,999.
On its website, the company thanks the Kardashians, Vogue, and People for supporting its business. As you can see from the pictures, True is not the only child in the family who has one of these rides.
Here's how the mom-shaming exchange started.
The Instagram account Comments by Celebs captured the interaction between a mom-shaming Instagram user and Khloé. We have to say that Khloé could not have handled it better.
The mom-shamer 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 bear to watch as you spend all this money on worthless materialism. It’s so sad." OUCH!
Imagine how surprised he must have been when Khloé responded with, "Ummm you know this is not a real Bentley? It’s a toy...no reason to get sad over a baby in a toy car. Either way, I’m sorry that you feel that way and have a great weekend. Focus on things that make you happy! Smile!"
She could have gone low, but she didn't. She kept the comment positive. Khloé's class rubbed off on the mom-shamer because he came back at her with a decidedly different tone than his first comment. "Appreciate your responding," he wrote. "Just figured it’s something to be thinking about. You have so much influence and know you’ve had a positive impact on so many. Always ways we can improve as people though--myself 100% included."
Also, let's get one thing clear.
Having money and spending it on your child is not a crime. Just like not having much money to spend on your child is not a crime, either. Good parents do the best they can with what they have.
