Kim Kardashian Accused of Cultural Appropriation for Trying to Trademark 'Kimono'

By

Kim Kardashian is used to criticism. Some of the harsh words about the reality TV star / business mogul are valid, and some are in bad faith. But her latest blunder offended a lot of people, and it became clear Kim really needs people around her who will say, "Hey, you maybe want to rethink this? Please?"

Kim seemed really excited to launch her new shapewear line on Tuesday, but it was met with immediate backlash. She tweeted out that this project has been 15 years in the making. And then, she revealed its name.
