North West was without a doubt the highlight of The Kardashians Season 2 finale.
North joined her mother and grandmother, Kris Jenner, to Paris for Couture Fashion Week in Season 2, Episode 10 of the Hulu series, “Here’s to Paris.” North was featured prominently for a considerable chunk of this episode, as she followed her mother and grandmother.
While in Paris, North was appropriately confident in herself and her fashion show appearance, allowing her personality to shine and putting the photographers in their place. Fans may recall that the 9-year-old had a viral moment earlier this year when she put up a placard reading “Stop” during the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture presentation. In the season two finale of The Kardashians, we get to witness and hear Kim’s response to this event.
In the days preceding up to the concert, North and his family (including his cousin Cici Busey) were harassed by paparazzi. North decided to take a stance when the cameras followed them to the event. “They placed invitations on each seat, then she snatched the pen from Cici’s purse and scribbled ‘Stop’ in large letters on the invitation,” Kim revealed in a confessional. “And she just held it up to the folks opposite her, saying, ‘Do not take a photo of me!'”
Anyone who knows North is aware of how humorous she finds this video. North apparently got enough of people snapping photographs of her, so she scrawled “STOP” on her invitation and held it up, requesting that everyone just watch the event. pic.twitter.com/29F26ooy8A

In July 2022, when images and video of North and her actual “Stop” sign were uploaded on the internet, she became global as a youthful icon. The photographs rapidly became internet memes, and Kim even posted a short video of North performing during the performance with the message, “For anybody who knows North, you know how hilarious she thinks this video! North apparently got enough of people snapping photographs of her, so she scrawled “STOP” on her invitation and held it up, requesting that everyone just watch the event.
Kim gave a more succinct reaction to her daughter’s paparazzi protest in the season 2 finale: “I was dying.”
Kim told the cameras earlier in the show, “I absolutely adore it when North is feeling herself — the glasses, the cap — like, I’m just so pleased that she’s enjoying this experience.” “That simply makes me happy. What a fortunate young lady! “That’s insane!”
Fans of North are aware that this is not her first encounter with paparazzi-related irritation. Earlier in the week, another video showed North exiting a hotel and telling passersby, “Why do you always have to wait for us?” Who could forget the moment she warned reporters on her way to dance class in 2015, “I said no photographs,” or the time she told her own mother “no pictures” in an Instagram post in 2016?
Who among us cannot connect to the fact that North West does not always wish to be perceived? Allow her to live.
The first two seasons of The Kardashians are currently available to watch on Hulu.
