People are calling out Kanye West for policing Kim Kardashian's Met Gala dress on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
On Sunday (Oct 13), Kim Kardashian took fans behind the scenes of her Met Gala look on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Fans of Kim will already know that the reality TV mogul wore a stunning Thierry Mugler corset look to the fashion event. The beautiful dress was literally dripping with pearls and it took the Mugler team over eight months to make. Following the Met Gala, Kim received major acclaim from critics for her outfit but it turns out that her husband Kanye West didn't like it.
On KUWTK, Kanye called Kim's Met Gala attire "too sexy" and now he's receiving backlash for his comments.
In a clip of Kim trying on the dress, Kanye criticised her Met look and clothing choices: "I just made this transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls, looking at my wife, like, 'Oh, my girl needs to be like the other girls, showing her body off.' I didn't realise that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that's married and loved, and the father of now, what—about to be four kids? A corset is like a form of underwear. It's hot. It's like, it's hot for who, though?"
Noticeably upset by Kanye's sexist comments, Kim fired back: "So the night before the Met, you're gonna come in here and say that you're not into a corset bust? I don't need any more negative energy for you to now say that you're not into me in a tight dress." Kanye then attemtped to explain himself saying: ""You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy".
Kim wouldn't let him have the last word though adding: "You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this stuff," Kim said. "And just because you're on a journey and you're on a transformation doesn't mean that I'm in the same spot with you."
Now the internet is praising Kim for standing her ground and criticising Kanye for trying to police what Kim wears. People are calling Kanye "fragile", "pathetic" and a "hypocrite" for complaining about Kim's style and being so controlling over it.
But now that same masculinity and hungry ego is telling him that her sexuality needs to be confined because now her being publicly sexy- in his mind- shows a weakness of him as a man. What a fragile, pathetic thing! And both instances are about ownership— it's......bolu babalola's account (@BeeBabs) October 14, 2019

kanye complaining how kim’s photos are “too sexy” and it affects him why’d you marry a bad bitch then— beth (@bethmejiax) October 14, 2019
Kanye thinks we've forgotten when he made Kim ride on a motorcycle topless in Bound 2.— Bitterbelly 🌕 (@sugabelly) October 14, 2019
Now he wants to claim sexy outfits are paining him.
What a hypocrite.
Kanye is the type of guy that wants his wife to fit into whatever mood/trend he’s into. When he’s all about the nudity vibe or homeless fashion, he wants Kim to follow suit. When he’s into his fake gospel vibe, she must now dress like the ‘big mummy’ of a church LMAO. Sad.— Damilola (@DamiOdufuwa) October 14, 2019
Lmao so now that Kanye rebranded to being a pastor he wants Kim to stop wearing tight dresses & posting sexy pictures? pic.twitter.com/GK2nHf08BW— Kiernan Jarred Forbes (@_renaey_xx) October 14, 2019
As it stands Kanye is yet to respond to the backlash. We shall update you if he does.
