Many would say it's a stretch to compare Kim Kardashian to the Virgin Mary. But Kim herself did just that with a new Kimoji product she dropped this week—and people are pissed.

Kim sent out a series of tweets on Thursday announcing new merchandise in her online store—including a prayer candle with an image of Kim as the Virgin Mary.

But some fans defended Kim:

This isn’t the first time a celebrity’s face has been swapped for that of the Virgin Mary—there are whole Etsy stores devoted to selling candles depicting pop culture icons as saints (think Ryan Gosling, Drake, and Cher). But typically those are created by fans, not the celebrity themselves. So...there's that.

The “Kim Candle,” as it's called on the Kimoji website retails for $18. You know, just FYI.
