While it's easy to just imagine celebrities like the Kardashians having the easiest lives ever, it's just simply not the case. Yes, they're rich. Yes, opportunities just fall into their laps. Yes, they never have to pay for anything even though it should be me getting everything for free. But, it's not all sunshine and daisies, especially when you're a celebrity and a parent. Being able to protect your children from the intense paparazzi cameras is almost impossible and with social media added to the mix, many people are questioning where the line should be drawn for celebrity children.

Recently, Kim Kardashian's eldest child North clapped back at the paparazzi during a fashion show last week, and fans are not happy with Kim's reaction.

I think we can all agree that one of the most disturbing parts of global fame would have to be the paparazzi.

Now, I'm not talking about the photogs at red carpet events. I'm talking about the people that hunt down celebrities and their children in order to snap pics of them.

While this type of behavior is illegal in California, I'm a big believer that this children's privacy law should to be implemented everywhere.

One of the more outspoken children has always been Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter, North West.

YouTube is filled with clips of her yelling at the paparazzi, asking them to stop taking photos of her, starting from when she was just 2 years old.

Now that North is older, she is able to advocate for herself more, with her most recent paparazzi callout.

During the Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter fashion show earlier this month, the 9-year-old held a handwritten sign that said "Stop" while sitting in the front row with her mom and Anna Wintour.

A clip of the now-viral moment was shared by Kim, who joked that her eldest North had "had it with the people taking pictures of her."

"For anyone who knows North knows how funny she finds this video!" the 41-year-old tweeted alongside the clip.

However, it seems not everyone was laughing.

Kim's replies quickly became filled with people asking why Kim would bring her daughter to the front row of this fashion show if she knows she hates photos so much.

"it’s actually kind of sad if you think abt it," tweeted one fan. "She deserves to have a normal life just like other kids her age."

Others were quick to shift the blame from Kim to the paparazzi.

While there's no denying paparazzi are known for invading boundaries of both celebrities and their children, I hope Kim is able to take her daughter's feelings into consideration more in the future and maybe limit the number of paps around North.
