KIM KARDASHIAN: Reacts to #KimOhNo
Written by KingCnote on June 28, 2019
Kim Kardashian heard the #KimOhNo complaints loud and clear.
Her trademarked “Kimono Intimates” shapewear from sizes XXs to 4XL appropriates the name of the traditional Japanese robe. The most vocal critics made the #KimOhNo hashtag trend on Twitter.
So Kim reached out to The New York Times to respond. Somebody helped Kim craft the following statement. (quote) “I made the decision to name my company Kimono — not to disassociate the word from its Japanese roots — as a nod to the beauty and detail that goes into a garment.”
The Jezebel blog snarked at Kim Kardashian, (quote) “Nothing demonstrates superior knowledge about Japanese culture quite like a one-legged girdle.”
