Kylie Jenner reportedly deleted photos of her daughter Stormi on Instagram because of hateful comments.

Since Stormi's arrival on February 1, the 20-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star had posted numerous adorable pictures of her baby girl on social media.

But fans noticed Kylie recently deleted all the photos showing her four-month-old daughter's face, and according to an insider, the reality TV star was trying to make a statement.

"Kylie felt so protective of her baby when she was pregnant. This is why she didn't share any bump pictures while she was pregnant. After Stormi was born, Kylie was the proudest mom. She couldn't wait to show off Stormi to her fans," the insider told People.

"She posted pictures, because she was so excited to be a mom. Unfortunately, social media is a crazy place, [and] people have been making nasty comments" about Kylie's baby girl.

Kylie welcomed Stormi with boyfriend Travis Scott earlier this year after keeping her pregnancy under wraps for months.

Kylie felt the need to apologize to her fans for keeping everything a secret once Stormi was born, but now the new mom probably wishes she had maintained that quiet, private approach to motherhood.

"Kylie is shocked and doesn't want her daughter's pictures to be a part of something negative," the insider explained to People.

"She might reconsider in the future, but for now, she won't post any more photos of Stormi's face."

Kylie posted a makeup-free selfie on Sunday, showing just a little bit of Stormi's forehead, which prompted followers to question why so many pictures of the little girl had been deleted.

"Yeah I cut my baby out. I'm not sharing photos of my girl right now," Kylie reportedly replied to one user.

Kylie isn't putting up with much of anything when it comes to her daughter.

In May, rumors swirled Kylie's former bodyguard Tim Chung is the biological father of Stormi -- which he has firmly denied -- so Kylie also made a point to subtly shoot down speculation on Instagram by captioning a photo of Travis and herself at the 2018 Met Gala, "Stormi's Parents."
