Guess what? Kim Kardashian has managed to piss some people off (again). This time, it’s for a recent item added to her online merch store: a religious candle that portrays the mother of two as a psychedelic Virgin Mary.
As expected, people were outraged, calling Kim “disgusting” and shaming the 36-year-old for disgracing a sacred figure. Personally, I found the item’s $18 price tag more offensive.
Once I got passed the initial shock of the cost, I delved deeper into Kim’s store and, upon further inspection, was dumbstruck to find that Kim’s store caters to one very particular kind of consumer: potheads.
A quick perusal shows that a good 90 percent of Kim’s stock is currently weed-adjacent. This is because on 4/20, internationally known as weed day, Kim released a collection of items she coined the “420 drop.” Take a gander at some of the colorful items below.
The products left fans of the reality star confused. Does Kim really smoke weed? She’s given us no indication of marijuana use before. Her sister Kylie, on the other hand, is much less guarded about her drug use and has posted multiple images of herself seductively consuming cannabis as only a Kardashian can.
Unfortunately for fans of Kylie, all they’ll find at her online store, The Kylie Shop, are hideous track suits obnoxiously emblazonned with the word “thick” and, for some reason, lighters with her 61-year-old mom’s face on it, which are equal parts annoying and amusing.
In fact, one item in the store even features an image of the makeup mogul smoking ganja. So one thing’s for sure: Kylie knows how to party.
Despite my best efforts to uncover some connection to Kim and marijuana, I came up empty-handed–aside from a 2016 festival essentials piece that she supposedly wrote. Among other things, it included a weed pipe.
What I did find, however, was that Kim told Rolling Stone in 2015 that she doesn’t drink or do drugs except for “five shots of vodka in Vegas every three years.” Bo-ring.
So there you have it. Kim, the Queen of self-marketing, is merely playing the stoner role to sell her fans on the idea that they need to butt out their blunts in a $35 ashtray with an animated image of her ass. No surprise here.
