North West may be the daughter of one of the most famous celebrities in the world, Kim Kardashian, but at the end of the day, she is still a child, and it is entirely understandable why she was left confused by the paparazzi following her every move.
Eyebrows have been raised at one pap’s response when nine-year-old North West curiously asked: “Why do you have to wait for us all the time?”
North, who was taking in the sights of the French Capital during Paris Fashion Week, where her mother Kim walked in the star-studded Balenciaga show, just wanted some answers as she emerged from a building to hoards of photographers snapping pictures of her.
And disturbingly, one pap replied to her question: “Because you’re so famous, we love you, North!”
With the clip going viral on Twitter, people expressed concern over North’s apparent discomfort with the paps’ presence while highlighting the complexities of growing up in the spotlight.
One person asked: “Why is this normal? It’s so weird they’re filming these kids and waiting for them. Idc who their parents are. They deserve privacy.”
Another echoed: “I mean it is weird for paparazzi to be outside waiting to take pictures of children they kids leave them alone fr.”
A fifth added: “Even hearing them ask why the paparazzi are there is sad because I can tell their future is going to be agonizingly open, and their privacy is going to be in shamble’s.”
