“What an honor it is to share the same stage with this young superstar in the making,” Jason wrote alongside an adorable photo of him and North. “I’m so PROUD you, North!! You’re doing such a PHENOMENAL job in this show!”

North did have her fair share of supporters online too though, with some accusing the haters of using their distaste of North’s mother Kim against her daughter.
