Katie Price sparked outrage from social media users after sharing photos of her 17-month-old daughter Bunny with her ears pierced.

The TV presenter and former glamour model showed off the little girl’s newly pierced ears in a series of Instagram posts captioned it: ‘Gorgeous Bunny bops.’

Her fans were not impressed. She received comments like – ‘You have put holes in your child for vanity and not waited until they are old enough to decide for themselves. This is a selfish decision.’

Whilst another simply branded it ‘Tacky’ and ‘Cruel’.

I don’t believe that a good parent would choose to inflict pain upon their child for no reason,’ another wrote.

Shame she couldn’t decide for herself!” wrote bonmac10

Should be your child’s choice if she wants her ears pierced, children are not a fashion accessory!!” wrote kylomas

Jenny wrote “Absolutely a disgrace in my opinion. These young babies don’t turn around and say mummy I want lots of pain and to have my ears pierced”

edcjoy commented “When people say they “don’t see the problem” it’s because they ARE the problem. A form of child abuse. How could you PAY someone.”

Many fans jumped to Katie’s defence commenting how gorgeous her little girl looked and how some people seriously needed to check the meaning of “child abuse”.

When do you think is a good age to get your child’s ears pierced?

  • It seems a lot of Italian girls have theirs done as babies as my neighbour’s granddaughter was only a baby when she had studs in hers. Some of the girls of Greek descent in my class at school also had studs in their ears but I don’t know at what age they were put in.

  • I think wait until the child is older but each to their own, I wonder if all those women bagging her out think the same about circumcision

  • Personally I do not like pierced ears on little girls, but that is my opinion. I would never dream of saying anything to someone who has done so – especially all over social media!

  • I had my ears pierced at 18 and my daughter was 14. I don’t see a problem with babies having pierced ears but it worried me in case they got infected or if they got caught in their hair, so I waited until she was ready. This is a lovely photo of Katie’s little girl and will become part of her identity.

  • Wow, what strong reactions ! I’m amazed. So many Sri-lanken, Indian and children from other Asian countries and indigenous tribes have their ears pierced when they’re only a couple of months old. Do all these women who react so strong on Katie piercing her daughters ears also jump on all these other Asian and Indigenous women ??
    My girls got their ears pierced on age 6-7 years, when they wanted it.


    • yes and girls want to be like the other females in their lives who have pierced ears.

  • it doesn’t really hurt though? i have had it done as a child and i don’t remember that and as an adult and it was like nothing! the noise is worse! people will whinge just because they can. Who cares though! at the end of the day, katie price won’t care about this and she doesn’t know these people lol.

  • I think that this is a family choice & others do not have the right to question what is a family decision. In other parts of the world this is a part of custom & outrage over this minor decision is not an issue. I am sure there are millions of children in the world that have pierced ears at a young age. Some people need to get a life of their own.

  • This is ridiculous!! It’s 2016 people! She has her fucking ears pierced so what?? Back in the 80’s and 90’s it was okay so what wrong with it now! It’s not child abuse you people are ignorant for saying its abuse! Stop worrying about this pettiness and worry about the children who are actually being abused!!! STOP BEING IGNORANT! You don’t like it then don’t fucking look! Sincerely, a real mom! #ignorantpeople #worryaboutyourownkid

  • WHO CARES?! As long as the child is fed and looked after I really don’t care. There are enough people in the world who are killing their children by abusing them – Baby Ebony with her 70 broken bones to name one – and we’re worrying about a little girl getting her ears pierced? It’s a traditional thing, move along.

  • What a load of garbage !
    Nothing wrong with this – centuries have passed with many different nationalities/countries piercing babies ears.

    Mind your own beeswax – just because you don’t approve does not make it wrong, grow up

  • i AM A “WOG” AND WE ALL HAVE OUR EARS PIERCED WHEN WE ARE BABIES. MANY PEOPLE HAVE THEIR SONS CIRCUMCISED AT BIRTH FOR NO GOOD REASON…..BUT IT IS THEIR CHILD AND THEIR CHOICE. CHILD ABUSE INDEED!!! LIVE YOUR OWN LIVES AND STOP TRYING TO POLICE OTHER PEOPLES LIVES.

  • Although I waited till my children were old enough to decide for themselves, there are many cultures who have their children’s ears pierced almost at birth. Each to their own and no one has the right to criticise another – they can only air their own opinion.

  • Absolutely ridiculous comments. I think we all had our ears pierced as children and I sure as hell can’t remember any pain. I also did my daughters ears and when she was six and said she didn’t want them I simply took them off.

  • Of course she looks gorgeous. I don’t agree with piercing babies/kids ears before they can ask for it themselves and actually KNOW what is involved. It’s like any other parenting decision you make though, there will always be someone who disagrees with it.

  • I’ve struggled with this decision myself. I had my own ears pierced as a baby, and it seemed natural to have my own daughters ears pierced as a baby. But, I could not bring myself to do it. I felt that it wasn’t fair to my baby. I looked at other baby girls with earrings longingly. My daughter is five now and is now inclined to get her ears pierced. If she’s ready at five I won’t hesitate to say ‘Hooray’ and take her right away to get it done.
