Ive learned that Kanye gets very very very upset if you refer to his kid as "the kid"— erik maza (@erikmaza) February 14, 2015
This website was founded on the principle of countering treacly baby-related writing that calls babies baby, like in "wipe warmers are best for baby," or DD or DS, and so we have only ever called babies and children kids. Our own kid is the kid. This is not an accident, it is on purpose, and it has worked out pretty well so far.
UPDATE: And here is Maza's full report of the encounter, from WWD:
"No -- don't, don't, don't, don't," West snarled, indignant. "'Where did you guys leave the kid?'" The problem seemed to be the reference to his firstborn with something as ordinary as "the kid." "We don't call it the kid," Kardashian added helpfully. Once he was talked off a ledge, West backed down, if only a little. What did he think of Wang's show?We don't call it the kid.
"I'm not going to answer any more questions. I'm just telling you, you don't ask about our damn kid," he said. OK!
