North West dresses up as Michel Jackson on Halloween

Kim Kardashian’s eldest daughter North West channeled Michael Jackson for Halloween this year.

She recreated the late singer’ look by sporting a leather jacket with a white tee and tons of makeup on her face.

However, the nine-year-old also donned the King of Pop’s famous off-white hat that he wore in the music video of his 1988 single Smooth Criminal.

If you didn’t know, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star bought the authentic hat from an auction that was held in 2019. She reportedly purchased it as a Christmas present for one of her kids. 

In addition, the mother of four also bought Jackson’s velvet jacket that he wore to Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday party in 1997. He donned the same outfit for the screening of his movie Ghosts.


Nevertheless, reports claim that Kardashian spent around a whopping $65,625 for the item.

Social media users slam Kim Kardashian and North West over Michel Jackson’s hat

Several internet users were not impressed with North West wearing something of historical significance. 

Moreover, they called the gesture ‘insensitive’ while slamming the Kardashian family for purchasing Michel Jackson’s hat from the auction.

A user wrote, ‘Just wearing dead icons stuff for playtime.’

Besides that, a second one jokingly said, ‘I know Michael came back in spirit and was hee hee heated!’

A third user noted, ‘There’s something sinister about all this. First Marilyn’s dress and now this.’

Meanwhile, a fourth user mentioned, ‘Time to Cancel Kanye’s kids too.’

Another mentioned, ‘The actual hat. That whole family sucks.’

Additionally, someone else stated, ‘Why does she keep defacing historical items?’

A different user called out, ‘This doesn’t sit right with me at all, Michael’s kids or a museum should have a treasure like that, they don’t deserve it and she’s just playing in it like it’s a toy, that hat means a lot to a lot of fans this is really sad.’

While another chimed in saying, ‘A lot of people don’t seem to realize the cultural significance of these items, they deserve to be preserved and shown in Museums as part of Pop Culture. I can’t walk into a museum and ask to try on authentic 20’s flapper dresses, why can Kim do this?’
