Fans Slam Kim Kardashian For Turning a Church Outing Into a ‘Glam Shot’

Kim Kardashian West loves documenting her life on social media. And she recently took a trip to Armenia with her family so that her children could learn about where their ancestors are from. Kardashian has visited Armenia in the past, but this was the first time she visited the country with her own family. However, some fans thought her recent church photos were distasteful.

The Kardashians have spent this past week in Armenia

Robert Kardashian, the Kardashians’ late father, was Armenian and took a lot of pride in his culture and heritage. The four Kardashian children grew up with a strong appreciation of Armenia and have gone to visit several times, especially since losing their father. This past week, the Kardashians took a long-anticipated return trip to Armenia, and this time, Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian brought their children along for the trip. Kardashian West wanted her kids to learn about where her side of the family comes from and introduce them to where their ancestors once lived.

Kardashian West has incorporated religion into her children’s lives

Kardashian West and Kanye West have done their best to incorporate religion into their children’s lives. It’s unclear how much Kardashian practiced religion when she was growing up, though the family does seem to turn to God for a lot of things in life. Now that West does his Sunday service, Kardashian West’s kids have become more involved in religion than ever. And during the family’s trip to Armenia, Kardashian West’s children were baptized in one of Armenia’s most well-known cathedrals. Though she loved sharing the photos of her family, some fans weren’t too pleased.

Some fans took issue with her recent photos in an Armenian church

Kardashian West posted two sets of photos to her Instagram from her family’s time spent in the cathedral. And though the photos were beautiful, not everyone was happy to see that she was posting photos during something that seemed so personal. “Why can’t you guys just have a special, personal family experience without photographing it and turning it into a glam shot,” one user commented. “When u [sic] get baptized just for the ig [sic] pics,” another person wrote. Others took issue with her tight dress in the church. “If u [sic] were baptized, dress properly!” one user added. “Your outfit seems a little tight for a baptism.”

The Kardashians have received criticism for Instagram photos in the past 

Though Kardashian West is proud of her heritage and proud of what she did for her family, the Kardashians have received criticism from photos before. Fans have taken issue with everything from over-editing to using Photoshop and have suggested in the past that the family posts too many personal events to social media. However, Kardashian West seems to enjoy sharing close family moments with her followers, since so many of them love and support her. Though they mostly block out the haters, it doesn’t stop some fans (or trolls) from saying how they feel about the way she parents her kids and lives her life.
