Kim Kardashian Faces Backlash for "Disrespectful" Kimoji Merch

"You've gone too far this time!"

Kim Kardashian has come under fire from fans after she revealed the latest update to her Kimoji app: an image of herself dressed as the Virgin Mary with a psychedelic background—to celebrate 4/20.

Sharing three gifs of the image on the official Kimoji Instagram page, she wrote: "420 DROP NOW AVAILABLE," but fans were quick to respond, accusing her of being "disrespectful."

In the comments, one person wrote: "This is beyond disrespectful!! What does this even have to do with 4/20?" while someone else said: "Extremely disgusting and low. Understand this—you are nothing like Our Lady and Kanye is not Jesus. Stop thinking you are religious figures. You are not."Another added: "Shame on you!"

Kardashian uploaded another picture of the same image projected onto a candle, and yep, that one also went down about as well as you'd expect, with fans saying she'd "gone too far."

The backlash comes after she angered Twitter users earlier this week when she tweeted that the "flu can be an amazing diet."

"The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol," she said. She finished the tweet with the hashtag "#6lbsdown."

The message irked some fans over on Twitter, who criticized the star for potentially sending a bad message about body positivity, among other things.
