It’s no secret that the late Michael Jackson was an inspiration to many, including Kim Kardashian’ daughter, North West. Recently, North was spotted wearing Jackson’s signature hat and fans are not happy. Some feel that it is inappropriate for a child to be wearing the hat of a man who was accused of sexual abuse, while others believe that North is simply paying tribute to a musical icon.
Kim Kardashian is facing criticism on TikTok after her daughter North wore Michael Jackson’s real hat for a Halloween party.
Who Is Kim Kardashian?
Kim Kardashian is an American reality television personality and businesswoman. She is best known for starring in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Kardashian has also appeared in the films Disaster Movie (2008) and Deep in the Valley (2009).
Who Is Michael Jackson?
Michael Jackson was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. He was one of the most famous and successful musicians of all time, and his career spanned four decades. Jackson’s style of music and dance, as well as his public persona, had a profound and lasting impact on popular culture.
He is credited with helping to popularize black music and dance, and with making black culture more mainstream. Jackson’s music and dance moves were often imitated by other artists. He also popularized the use of the sequencer, the synthesizer, and other electronic music devices in popular music.
Jackson’s influence on music and popular culture is evident in many of today’s biggest stars, including Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, and Rihanna.
Kardashian’s Daughter Wore Michael Jackson’s Real Hat
If you thought the backlash to Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi ad was bad, just wait until you see what people are saying about Kim Kardashian’s latest Instagram post. The reality star shared a photo of her daughter North West wearing what appears to be Michael Jackson’s iconic sequined fedora, and people are not happy.
Many commenters called out Kardashian for “disrespecting” the late singer, with some even asking her to take the photo down.
“Why would you let your daughter wear MJ’s hat? That’s so disrespectful,” one person wrote.
“This is so wrong on so many levels,” another commented.

Some people were quick to point out that the hat is likely a replica and not the actual one that Jackson wore, but that didn’t seem to matter to most commenters.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s a replica, it’s still in bad taste,” one person wrote.
“I don’t care if it’s fake, it’s still inappropriate,” another commented.
It’s not the first time that North West has worn something that has sparked controversy. Last year, she was photographed wearing a shirt with the Confederate flag on it, which led to a heated debate on social media.
It’s clear that people are not going to let this latest fashion choice slide, and we can’t say we’re surprised.
On Instagram, Kim shared a video of the jacket and said: “North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this. We won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas.”
She wrote in another Instagram story: “Along with the jacket, North also got Michael’s ‘Smooth Criminal’ hat. It still has his make up on it.”
