Kim, u okay hun?
Does a day ever pass when Kim Kardashian isn't getting dragged for something? From her daughter North West's lipstick to promoting diet shakes, Kim loves to toe the line of controversy and it's not about to change.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star swiftly deleted her Instagram story after being called out by her followers for supporting Dolce & Gabbana. You know, the incredibly problematic fashion brand who happen to despise the Kardashians and once branded them "cheapest family in the world". Yep, that's the one.
So, here's the tea behind Dolce & Gabanna. The founders – Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce – have been slaughtered at every opportunity for some down right wrong comments. Case in point, when Stefano called Selena Gomez ugly…twice. Or when Domenico said he was against gay adoptions, surrogacy and IVF. Oh, and just a "racist" fashion ad that saw their Shanghai fashion show cancelled.
So imagine the surprise when Kim posted some of the gifts she'd had sent from the Italian fashion house. "So I come home to these amazing, huge Dolce & Gabanna boxes," Kim explained as she panned around the room, while North squealed with delight. "That's how I felt, 'Yes!' Inside are these sequinned tuxedos. It's, like, jackets with a vest."
Although both Stefano and Domenico have apologised for their offensive comments, Kim's fans were confused why she'd even promote a brand with that kind of messy history behind them, especially because her youngest daughter Chicago was born via surrogate in January.
Needless to say, people were appalled.
Mad disappointed in @KimKardashian for giving Dolce & Gabbana air time on her instagram story. I refuse to support unapologetic racists that attack those who don’t agree with them. I will never get over their ignorance and hate and I need those with large platforms to do the same— Alex (@AlexWetherby) January 6, 2019
According to Page Six, Kim took down the Instagram Story only an hour after posting it. We guess she got the message.
