Kim Kardashian is getting ripped apart for supporting a toxic brand. We all know that Kim does sponsored posts very regularly. Whether it's for SugarBearHair or Flat Tummy Co., she's rarely one to not post something just because she'll get backlash for it. From almost nude photos to photoshopped photos, Kim's Instagram alone is probably worth millions. And while this Instagram story wasn't sponsored, it still wasn't a great idea to post it.
In the Instagram story she posted, Kim can be seen praising fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana. She shows off the gold boxes, and three sparkly tuxedo jackets while North is in the background acting super excited. You're probably thinking, so what's the problem? Well... a lot.
See, Dolce & Gabbana doesn't have a great track record or rep at all. A few months ago, the head of Dolce & Gabbana called Selena Gomez 'ugly'. They also ripped apart Miley Cyrus when she put them in their place after calling Selena ugly. Now, Kim is known for a lot of things. But one thing she has been in the news about lately is the fact that she's using another surrogate to carry a baby boy for her. And Dolce & Gabbana have said their peace on that, and it's not great. The below Instagram post is the story Kim ended up deleting:
In 2015, the founders of the brand Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce said they don't agree with IVF or adoption. Dolce said, "We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus." Hm. So, Kim, sweetie. How can you support a brand that doesn't support you? In the above photo, there is a screenshot of Gabanna calling the Kardashian's 'the most cheap people in the world'.
While Kim took down the Instagram post very quickly after she posted it, fans still saw it and were not happy. Tweets were anywhere from saying they expected more from her, for her to educate herself, to saying they were disappointed in her. I think it's time we stop separating fashion from toxic brands. You can wear a sparkly blazer all you want, but is it really worth it if the brand called your family cheap and told you the way you're conceiving is wrong? Probably not!
