Childless model says women with kids don’t work as hard

The claws are out! British model Kelly Brook is facing backlash after criticizing parents who “used kids as an excuse not to do their jobs properly.” 

Brook, 38, made the controversial remarks during a recent appearance on U.K. talk show Loose Women.

“I don’t have children so I don’t always understand,” Brook admitted before taking a shot at certain coworkers. “If they can’t make an appointment or can’t do something, or there is a deadline, some people will say, ‘Oh, it’s because I have to wash the baby,’ or ‘feed the kids,’ or ‘I’ve got to do the school run,’” mused Brook.

She continued: “Others have kids and you never hear about the kids. They are very professional and I love that.”

Brook then declared, “If you can’t meet the demands of your job, don’t blame your kids.”

The remarks set Twitter ablaze. “Kelly brook has absolutely no idea, how can she even comment without having kids. Just wait until you do kelly. Then you will realize how hard it is,” wrote one person. Echoed another: “Kelly the expert on trying to be a parent and juggle a career. How many kids does she have again?” 

A third quipped, “Kelly shouldn’t be commenting on a subject she has NO experience in. It’s like me giving a review on a restaurant I haven’t been too.”

Brook revealed in January that she wishes she had children in her twenties. “I spent so much of my time focusing on my career and making money,” she said on Loose Women. “That was such focus, that, actually, having a family was kind of left behind. Now I’m in late thirties, I feel like, actually I wish I had thought more about having children earlier.”
