We are truly living in a cruel world when folks have to criticize someone for championing an important cause. Kelly Clarkson's participation in an adoption awareness event apparently has ruffled a few feathers ... because people can't stop making digs at the mom.

  • Kelly lent her voice to CBS's "A Home for the Holidays" special on December 19.

  • The event, hosted by Josh Groban, intended to shine a light on the importance of adoption, a cause Kelly believes in.

    "I grew up with a lot of kids that were adopted," the celeb mom revealed to Entertainment Tonight. "My assistant, actually, was adopted." 

    "To see these stories, to see the smiles on the kids' faces -- finally having a home -- shines a light on what the season is about," added Josh Groban.

    Kelly and her husband Brandon Blackstock have daughter River, 3, and son Remington, 1. The singer is also a proud stepmom to Brandon's two kids, Savannah and Seth, from a previous relationship.

  • Viewers loved the TV special -- including families who've adopted.

  • As happy as the occasion was, sadly, some people had to cast a negative light ... and throw shade at Kelly.

    Dear God, can we ever have a day when this doesn't happen?

  • Folks tried to come for Kelly for not adopting or fostering children of her own.

    Kelly looks happy and vibrant and she's still singing her face off. Why are you worried?

  • We really can't with this (at all).

    All this craziness over an adoption event? Good grief ...
