Katie Price, an English model with an equestrian clothing line, recently got a lot of attention for pictures of her 18-month-old baby posted to Instagram. In two images, Price's baby girl, Bunny (oh, English people), displays freshly pierced ears.


A lot of people in the comments were not cool with this, claiming piercing a baby's ears is child abuse or a decision the child should make when she's old enough.

Price discussed the matter on her weekly appearance on British panel show Loose Women.


The mother of five first compared her decision to circumcision, then explained the choice was related to her husband Kieran Hayler's Spanish heritage. A number of people on Instagram acknowledged that piercing a baby's ears is indeed a Spanish tradition.
