to wonder why there isn't a big AIBU thread about Katie Price's daughter's ears by now?

Maybe I missed it?

Katie Price has apparently been publicly criticised for getting her toddler daughter Bunny's ears pierced.

To me, it's the criticism, and not the ear piercing, which is ridiculous (and I rather like KP). But I'm surprised by the lack of MN outrage... what's going on?

Reported. Don't start threads about identifiable children. It doesn't matter who her mum is. And everyone knows KP comes on here sometimes. Who wants to see a thread about their child?

I saw it on the 'news' (and i use that term very loosely for this!) earlier. The woman is a [disablist word removed by MNHQ], but that also isn't really news.

MyAutumnAlmanac Tue 02-Feb-16 15:42:34

Oh, I apologise - no harm intended.

On the off-chance you're on here Katie, I think you're fab, in any case flowers

MyAutumnAlmanac Tue 02-Feb-16 15:43:32

PS I had no idea "everyone" knew that, Imperial!

See I hate pierced ears on babies/toddlers but I really like KP so I'm shockingly "meh" about this one.

i,m not keen on KP or pierced ears on babies but i do admire her for how she cares for harvey as the mother of a disabled child myself totally missing the point of the thread.

MyAutumnAlmanac Tue 02-Feb-16 15:50:52

Well, might as well chat before it's removed x2boys.

I also think she seems to do a brilliant job with Harvey, who seems like a really great kid.

Imperial. Don't be so silly. Are you KP?hmm

IHaveBrilloHair Tue 02-Feb-16 15:52:52

Meh, can't see the big deal.

MyAutumnAlmanac Tue 02-Feb-16 15:55:54

shutup, I don't think she's KP grin - I reckon Katie wouldn't mind this thread, given that she's quite open with pictures, etc., of her kids in the press....

ImperialBlether Tue 02-Feb-16 15:56:41

No, of course I'm not Katie Price! But if I saw a thread naming my child and encouraging people to make derogatory remarks then I'd ask MNHQ to stop the thread. I am acting on KP's behalf here!

MyAutumnAlmanac Tue 02-Feb-16 15:57:36

(I reported it too, Imperial, so we'll be gone soon...)

ThatsNotMyRabbit Tue 02-Feb-16 15:58:33

I think she's thick skinned enough to read this thread and still sleep ok 😄

She seems like a great, hands-on mum. Not great at picking men but nobody's perfect 😜

shutupandshop Tue 02-Feb-16 16:05:55

Nobodies asking for degoratory remarks about a child imperial. Ok are you her PR?

shutupandshop Tue 02-Feb-16 16:06:23

Op, you didn't do anything wrong.

WorraLiberty Tue 02-Feb-16 16:06:58

I had no idea KP uses Mumsnet. Has she said she does?

Either way, she was on Loose Women today discussing piercing her child's ears.

She quite rightly couldn't care less what other people think.

Don't really agree but there are worse things to get wound up about.

IvyWall Tue 02-Feb-16 16:08:30

Isn't this just Sleb gossip? After all, how do we know KP has had her dd's ears pierced? Presumably some item in the newspapers?

U2HasTheEdge Tue 02-Feb-16 16:08:41

Like KP needs protecting from MN users grin OP, you have done nothing wrong.

I must admit I have warmed up to her since she has been on LW.

Yes I watch LW!

IvyWall Tue 02-Feb-16 16:09:27

X post, so she was on TV discussing it

MyAutumnAlmanac Tue 02-Feb-16 16:11:01

IvyWall, she posted a picture on Instagram and then I think discussed on Loose Women (with more pics).

To me, it's the criticism, and not the ear piercing, which is ridiculous (and I rather like KP). But I'm surprised by the lack of MN outrage... what's going on?

So you thought you'd start a thread to stir up a little bit of that outrage, did you? Good call hmm

Gobbolinothewitchscat Tue 02-Feb-16 16:11:42

I suspect KP would be delighted that a thread has been started about this. She always strikes me as being from the school of any publicity is good publicity

I'm sharpening my pitch fork as I type. <musters outrage>
