North West’s TikTok Cosplay Video as Ice Spice has people agreeing with Resurfaced Old Kanye West Clip
North West, Ice Spice TikTok videos resembling the buzzing rapper. However, following North's clips going viral, the internet appears to have sided with her dad, Ye, who previously spoke adamantly against Northie appearing on the video-based social media app.
In a series of posts shared on Monday (March 6), North dons a curly orange wig and an Ice Spice-like outfit as she and friends dance and mouth along to Ice Spice TikTok sounds. Here’s one of those videos, which is set to Ice Spice and PinkPantheress’ “Boy’s A Liar Pt. 2”:
This clip and the others have spawned multiple varieties of discourse. Some Twitter users took exception to 9-year-old North listening to a song with sexual lyrics like, “Sayin’ he home, but I know where he at, like / Bet he blowin’ her back / Thinkin’ ’bout me ’cause he know that it’s fat.” In response to that, others pointed out that kids have been hearing suggestive popular tunes for decades now.
Others had lengthier comments to share, also defending Kanye while also bashing Kim Kardashian's parenting.
“Kanye was right … there’s no way a 9-year-old should be idolizing ice spice and listening to her music about twerking and having $ex with men… Kim is a terrible parent,” the person typed.
Another Twitter user said, “North has gone too far! 😭😭😭.”
The TikTok duo's North and her mom Kim Kardashian is also avoiding the discourse altogether, as the ability to comment on her TikTok posts is turned off.
Resurfaced video of Ye talking about TikTok (with some re-sharers inaccurately billing it as Kanye’s response specifically to North’s Ice Spice fascination). In the video, Kanye vents his frustrations about North’s TikTok activity and how he doesn’t want her to be “used” by the platform.
Ye said at the time, “I told y’all before about this TikTok stuff. Now my 8-year-old on here singing she fell in love with an emo girl Leftist don’t want fathers to have no say in our children's [sic] lives.”
He later added, “Hey everybody, I just got off the phone with Kim. I told her to stop antagonizing me with this TikTok thing. I said never again. I am her father and I know y’all don’t respect fathers and the idea of family [but] I said I’m not allowing my daughter to be used by TikTok, to be used by Disney. I have a say so.”
