Kardashian Fans Are Hating on Kim Kardashian’s Recent Instagram Post About Her Sunburn

Kim Kardashian is one of the most famous people in the world. Ever since Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered back in 2007, the Kardashian-Jenner family has slowly become more and more popular. But even the most popular celebrities can make mistakes now and then. And Kim Kardashian’s recent Instagram post highlighting her sunburn didn’t go over too well with fans.

Kardashian has received mixed reviews from fans

When it comes to the Kardashian family, Kim Kardashian is arguably the most famous. She’s the one who started it all and essentially helped her sisters rise to fame beside her. But she hasn’t always been the picture-perfect celebrity, according to fans (after all, nobody is perfect). Kardashian has supported her husband, Kanye West, in his support for Donald Trump, and Kardashian has worked closely with Donald Trump to advocate for issues such as prison reform and freeing those who received severe punishments for crimes that didn’t seem to warrant such a result. While those are great things, some fans have questioned why Kardashian chooses to support the president, and it’s landed her in hot water.

Kardashian launched a beauty line in 2017

Though Kardashian primarily made her money in modeling, she has started to branch out into other business endeavors. She, along with her sisters, owned the clothing boutique company Dash for a dozen years before they announced last April that they would be closing all of their stores. Kardashian also founded KKW Beauty, which was launched back in 2017, nearly two years after her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, launched her beauty line, Kylie Cosmetics. Kardashian’s line features makeup for the face and body. Plus, she launched a fragrance line, KKW fragrance, in November of the same year.

This week, she used her sunburn to promote her beauty line — and fans weren’t happy 

As any good entrepreneur would, Kardashian uses her social platform to promote her beauty line. However, fans thought a recent Instagram post was in poor taste. Kardashian posted a video showing off her sunburn, then her makeup artist used her body makeup to cover it up. She posted a before and after, showing off how her beauty line could conceal the makeup. But fans accused her of getting sunburn on purpose to promote the line. “Why do I feel like she intentionally got sun brun [sic] to promote her body makeup,” one user commented. The comment received 5,400 likes. “Anything to make money… Greedy people just don’t know when to stop,” another person commented, also suggesting Kardashian got sunburn on purpose. Others accused her of putting her beauty line and money before her health.

Some question if Kardashian copied her sister

For years, Kardashian was the most successful among any of her siblings. However, Kylie Jenner, her youngest sister, quickly took that title after launching her beauty line, Kylie Cosmetics, in 2015. Now, Jenner is a billionaire and worth more than every one of her siblings combined. Two years later, Kardashian decided to launch her own beauty line, and some accused the model of copying her younger sister’s career. While there doesn’t appear to be any bad blood between Kardashian and Jenner, fans can’t help but wonder of Kardashian is jealous of Jenner’s success.
