A Potential Controversy
With Khia’s fame increasing significantly, many other people caught attention aside from her followers. There are critics and detractors who do not agree to children or pre-teenagers going into a career of professional modelling at such a young age. Their argument is that these children should not be exposed to environments which can influence them to be overly conscious about their physical appearance. It may also promote a view of self-worth that is measured in the number of followers, based on the perception of other people, or focused on income. The problem with online fame especially when it comes to those who are not prepared for it, is that they may end up going to great lengths just to maintain their followership.
Khia has been accused of becoming a part of a bandwagon which promotes the perfect body, hair, and clothes. Despite all of this negativity surrounding her, Khia has never stated or promoted any messages pertaining to such, and fans have stated that these criticisms are only from people who think too cynically and are too negative about modelling. Many have praised her for pursuing her love of fashion at a young age. It also means that she can possibly transition to a career in professional modelling, as she is already building the skillset and experience required for it.
