Kim Kardashian leaps to defence of daughter North after her painting skills are questioned

Watch: Kim Kardashian warned trolls not to 'mess with me when it comes to my kids'

Kim Kardashian West launched a furious tirade at her millions of social media followers for mocking her daughter's painting skills.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians shared photograph on a landscape oil painting on her Instagram stories, which she proudly announced had been created by her seven-year-old daughter North West.

But her post, captioned "My little artist North", was quickly ridiculed and became a meme online as social media users disputed that a seven-year-old could possibly have produced such a skilled work of art.

"North worked incredibly hard on her painting which took several weeks to complete. As a proud mom, I wanted to share her work with everyone. I’m seeing op-ed pieces in the media and social media from grown adults breaking down whether or not my daughter actually painted this!

"How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome!?!?!
