No stranger to controversy, Khloé Kardashian had some choice words for a social media user who criticized her for a video she posted of her 14-month-old daughter True in a toy Bentley car.

In an exchange documented by Comments by Celebs, an Instagram user posted a screenshot of the video with the caption, “Another Kardashian in a Bentley. You guys are so oblivious to how your excessive spending looks to the outside world. I really loved your family’s story and now just can’t bare [sic] to watch as you spend all this money on worthless materialism. It’s so bad.”

Not one to back down, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star defended herself, telling the user, “Ummm you know this is not a real Bentley? It’s a toy -- No reason to be sad over a baby in a toy car. Either way I’m sorry you feel that way but I hope you have a great weekend! Focus on things that make you happy! Smile --

Following Kardashian’s simultaneously shade-heavy but positive response, the user shifted to a more kumbaya tone, urging the Kardashian to remember that she has “so much influence” and has “had such a positive impact on so many,” adding that there are “always ways we can improve as people.”

Kardashian followed up with another comment, turning what was intended to be a lesson over a pink, sparkly, fuzzy-carpeted toy truck into a learning opportunity for the user and a declaration of her motherly values.

“I appreciate this message more than your first,” she said, but denied that “all we do is ‘spend money on worthless materialism.’” She also defended her right to “spoil my daughter,” but proclaimed that she will do so “with love as well [as] with material items,” letting the individual know True will “be raised with values, responsibilities, chores, respect, self love.”

This isn’t the first time a baby Kardashian has received a lavish present. Back in April, aunt Khloé gifted a $15,000 Hermès purse to her niece Stormi Webster, daughter of sister Kylie Jenner and brother-in-law Travis Scott.
