This isn't the only Virgin Mary-related situation that Kardashian has contended with this week. Her selection of 4/20-themed products, on offer on her Kimoji site, rankled a lot of folks. But not exactly for the reason you'd probably expect: No, it wasn't the explicitly marijuana-themed merch, like the practical smoking accessories (such as rolling papers) or the stereotypical weed-themed garb, including a tie-dye tee that reads "Never not high," that caused the most ire. It was an $18 prayer candle featuring Kimmy as the Virgin Mary.
Kim Kardashian as the Virgin Mary....... is just as horrible as Kendall's Pepsi ad.... what's wrong with y'all, y'all that money hungry?— Kelly. (@XO_KFF) April 20, 2017
While the candle has (clearly) struck a nerve on social media, the sacred Christian figure worn on a minidress doesn't seem to have pissed people off (yet). Hey, we're all for the freedom to wear whatever you want to wear, whether or not your every single look is scrutinized to the same degree as a Kardashian's. And, arguably, it's one thing to wear a garment featuring a highly symbolic, religiously-charged motif, and another to actually juxtapose your face onto the likeness of the Virgin Mary. Let us know what you think of Kim's getup (and the candle that precluded said outfit) in the comments below.
