11-year-old Blue Ivy Carter is younger than many of the other well-known nepo babies, but already, her resume is more impressive than some celebrity children who are triple her age. Earlier this year, the young girl joined Beyonce on stage in Paris (where she was previously conceived) during the RENAISSANCE World Tour. She appeared during “My Power,” and managed to keep up with the gaggle of dancers around her, as well as her mother who was beaming with pride at the sight of Blue Ivy being cheered on by 80,000 fans watching them.
No matter how pleased the Carters were with their eldest daughter’s work, miserable haters on the internet still found time to criticize her. For the most part, people appear to take issue with Blue being “stiff” while dancing. “Dear Black Women, Blue Ivy is 11 years old performing for the first time in front of 80K people,” one Twitter user wrote amid all the negative discourse. “Stop hyper-sexualizing her saying she’s too stiff or making inappropriate comments about her body. Y’all are no different than the men. She’s a child. Y’all acting like pedos.”

“There is no need to oversexualize her but she is still stiff. And it’s okay for y’all to admit that. I have seen a lot of kids younger than her dance way better,” someone attempted to argue in the replies. “You don’t understand what age-appropriate means,” the OP shot back.
In response to another comment, they later wrote, “She dances like most 11-year-old kids. It’s beyond weird it’s [mostly] women making comments comparing her to a seasoned pro and adult.” Even with the hate, Blue looked cool and composed after finishing her iconic show, and will likely make more appearances at her mom’s future tour dates.
