24 Times Celebrity Moms Were Mom-Shamed in 2019 for the Dumbest Reasons

24 Times Celebrity Moms Were Mom-Shamed in 2019 for the Dumbest Reasons

The online community can be a brutal place, especially if you’re a mom in the public eye. It seems that everyone with WiFi has an opinion, and they are NOT afraid to share it. 

As parents, we’re already hard enough on ourselves, so it certainly doesn’t help to be mom-shamed when sharing sweet moments of one’s child. We’re wrapping up the year by looking back at all the times celebrity moms were publicly slammed for everything from their children’s hair to their own wine consumption (insert eye roll here). Maybe, just maybe, we can all go a little easier on hardworking moms in 2020.

When Jessica Simpson shared a snap of her 7-year-old daughter Maxwell Drew with dyed locks, the shamers went bananas saying that she’d “ruined her hair.”

Simpson was mom-shamed several times throughout 2019, in fact. In one of the silliest cases, she was criticized after posting a photo of her daughter Birdie Mae “incorrectly” strapped into her car seat. Except Birdie wasn’t in a car seat; she was in a stroller.

And that’s not all! While we were marveling over this gorgeous pic of Jessica Simpson’s baby girl Birdie Mae, people were quick to point out that she should be sleeping on her back. Jessica assured her followers that this was simply a posed picture. This girl can’t catch a break!

Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell will party if she wants to. The new mama received hate for attending Drake’s birthday party soon after giving birth to her daughter, Atlas.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann

Kim Zolciak-Biermann experienced the wrath of online mom shamers after sharing photos of her 5-year-old daughter wearing makeup, and she wasn’t having any of it.

Cardi B

Rapper Cardi B was mom-shamed at the beginning of the year. She posted a provocative photo of herself wearing a revealing outfit (for an adult film awards ceremony, no less), and commenters were quick to scold the mom for setting a bad example for her daughter, Kulture.

Kylie Jenner

Earlier This Year, Kylie Jenner was mom-shamed for having long, manicured nails. Apparently people felt that she couldn’t perform her motherly duties with a manicure, which… Come on!

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling faced backlash after sharing a photo of her girls with dyed hair. The famous mama responded with a much-needed, “Screw the shamers.”


Let a mama live! Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was bullied for having a glass of red while feeding her new baby Angelo.

Chrissy Teigen

After Chrissy Teigen posted a video of her painting daughter Luna’s nails, some haters pointed out it has dangerous toxins that kids shouldn’t be exposed to. Chrissy snapped back in one reply, “Well I actually had her drink it so joke’s on you.”

Like Jessica Simpson, Chrissy Teigen was mom-shamed multiple times in 2019. After she posted a gorgeous photo of her and husband John Legend, followers were quick to ask if she was rocking a baby bump. Thankfully, the queen of social media shut down the insensitive comments.

Kim Kardashian-West

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim Kardashian-West shared an adorable pic of herself and daughter North during a bonding moment, and all the shamers could focus on were the size of little North’s gold hoop earrings.


Pink had to defend herself against the “parenting police” after posting images of her children at Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial. She asked followers to keep their “hatred to themselves.”

In fact, Pink has experienced so much mom-shaming that she has vowed to stop sharing photos of her little ones after receiving so much backlash. She also disabled comments on all Instagram posts about her personal life.

Rachel Zoe

Stylist and designer Rachel Zoe couldn’t care less what you think about her son’s long hair. She replied to the criticism, “For the record, my son thinks he has cool surfer hair. At the end of the day, it’s not like I’m torturing him. He loves his hair. He thinks it’s cool.”

???? I meant to post these yesterday ????

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

And that wasn’t the only instance. When a follower asked Khloé if she was aware that her baby wasn’t an accessory, the mom clapped right back. “Would you like a parent NOT to create memories and traditions with their child? Would you like someone else to watch my child and me to do these things on my own? I am her mother and we will celebrate life together every day.”

Kourtney Kardashian

A weekend away.

A post shared by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on

Khloé and Kim’s sister, Kourtney Kardashian, is also no stranger to mom-shaming. Earlier this year, she was mom-shamed for letting her son, Reign, keep his hair long.

Kourtney was also mom-shamed for… taking her kids on a vacation? Literally what?

Meghan Markle

It seems that the public will look for any excuse to slam The Duchess of Sussex, so it’s no surprise that her every move as a mom has fallen under scrutiny. Things went too far when people suggested that Meghan Markle is a less-than-stellar mother for flying in to support friend Serena Williams at the U.S. Open, without baby Archie.
