Kim Kardashian Gives Hilarious Reason for Cropping North West Out of Selfie

A few days ago, Kim Kardashian cropped North out of a picture she posted to Instagram and the world pretty much imploded. In the photo, it appeared that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star didn't even really make an attempt to hide the fact that she cut her toddler daughter out. You can see a small sliver of Nori's little head next to Kim's sultry-faced selfie. Naturally, after the picture was posted, the comments -- and blog posts -- started rolling in, criticizing and making fun of Kim for doing something that seems so self-absorbed. 

Kim has now spoken out on why she cropped North out of the photo, and, well, it's kinda hard to argue with her excuse. Kim posted the following to Twitter:


She was just feeling her look, guys, that's all. Back off. Now, despite Kim's wording being pretty amusing -- "Can I live?!" -- the woman makes a valid point. Is it really that big of a deal that she cropped her daughter out because her eyes were closed? I'm sure people would have found something to make fun of Kim about, were Nori in the picture with her.

At the end of the day, Kim definitely is an easy person to make the butt of a joke. Anyone who's been married three times and who posts as many serious-faced selfies as she does is bound to get made fun of. But every once in a while, Kim gets crap for a completely ridiculous reason -- and this right here is a pretty ridiculous reason. Imagine what people would have said if she posted the picture with a closed-eyed North in it. Everyone still would have been up in arms about how vain she is, etc.

She's rich; she's gorgeous; and, well, she's a little ridiculous, so of course she's an easy target. But sometimes, guys, you've just gotta let Kim Kardashian live.
