North West’s Lion King performance DEFENDED by fans after trolls said that the youngster ‘can’t sing’ and only got the role because her parents are Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

North West has earned an army of defenders online following brutal backlash for her performance as a Young Simba during The Lion King’s 30th Anniversary concert on Friday.

While trolls blasted the eldest child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, others have taken to social media to push back against the vitriol.

‘North West’s Lion King performance was so cute – she’s a child, like y’all need to calm down,’ wrote one.

Y’all don’t like Kim, so y’all take it out on North? Why are people posting videos of her Lion King performance talking about how much better it would be it was actually a talented kid??? That’s a baby! Why are y’all being weird?’ asked another.

One wrote, ‘The world is really so cruel sometimes. North performed for some Hollywood Lion King play, and they are ripping that little girl apart online. She is a child…’

North made her acting debut when she took to the stage at The Hollywood Bowl to perform I Just Can’t Wait To Be King on Friday night – with her famous parents proudly watching on from the audience.

After belting out lyrics at the crowded venue, she received a standing ovation from the audience. 

However, some social media users on X (formerly known as Twitter) shared their thoughts on Kim and Kanye’s daughter snagging a coveted role in the musical concert.

One noted: ‘Nepotism is literally the best thing to be born with,’ while another added, ‘The worst case of nepo I have witnessed.’

Another penned, ‘Nepotism and the synonym next to it is KARDASHIANS,’ followed by laughing face emojis.

‘Nepotism is so crazy lol,’ one wrote. ‘Someone else’s more talented, probably voice and dance trained kid didn’t get it because his/her family isn’t famous enough.’

One social media user penned, ‘She looks great and it seems like she’s having a lot of fun, but I’m definitely not gonna bypass the fact that we all know she wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t who her parents were. This is classism at its finest!’

North has been the victim of brutal online trolling since her performance on Friday

Some naysayers said that the 10-year-old only got the gig because she’s the daughter of Kim Kardashian (pictured) and Kanye West

Another chimed: ‘Aw man…I feel bad for the kids there that are actually talented who could’ve nailed this.

‘I’m sure her mom’s influence (or money) is the only reason she got this leading/singing role.’

One also shared, ‘I don’t like that fact that she got this solely based on her mom or dad.

‘There’s a kid out there with real talent that should’ve been given this opportunity. And no I’m not a hater I actually like the “Kardashians.”‘

It’s unclear if North went through a standard audition process. DailyMail.com has reached out to a Kardashian spokesperson for comment.

Earlier this month, it was announced that North was cast in the live-to-film concert event which ran for two nights on May 24 and May 25. The Hollywood Bowl can notably hold up to 17,500 people and tickets for the concert began at $60.
