Kim Kardashian Gets Backlash For New “Kimono” Shapewear
Kim Kardashian has once again ignited the ire of those all across the internet with her latest foray into cultural appropriation.
According to the LATimes, the botched-booty breaker of chains has filed to trademark the word “kimono” to protect the name of her new business venture by the same name. Because it’s not like “kimono” was a Japanese word meaning a loose-sleeved robe that was established hundreds of years ago…
However, “Kimono,” “Kimono Body,” “Kimono Intimates” and “Kimono World” do appear to be among the other Kardashian-empire trademarks filed and awaiting review. For the most part, the applications target clothing (shapewear, lingerie, T-shirts) and products made of leather or imitation leather (handbags, wallets, dog harnesses, whips).
The indignant reaction to Kim’s insipid ignorance was swift and just.
These people really go out of their way to steal EVERYTHING from others. Knock it off already. Sheesh.
