This Meme Broke Kim Kardashian Down Emotionally But There Are Worse Memes About Her
Kim Kardashian is one of the most popular celebrities around, which means that there have been numerous memes about her in the past several years. While the internet loves to poke fun at Kardashian, people often forget that she can often see the jokes as well and does not always find them funny. In fact, there was one meme in particular that really hit her hard, and Kardashian admitted that she cried over it.
Kim Kardashian’s 2013 Met Gala look was a popular meme
When Kardashian attended the Met Gala for the first time in 2013, she donned a floral dress that caught many people’s attention. Kardashian recently looked back on this event in a video for Vogue, where she talked about what went on before and after the Met Gala.
“I was very pregnant, very puffy and bloated and I was like, ‘Oh God, of course the first time I go [to the Met Gala], I’m gonna be huge,” Kardashian said. “Kanye [West] was performing so I wasn’t actually invited, I was just Kanye’s plus one. And that was OK with me… I know no one really probably wanted me there at the time.”
The dress that Kardashian wore was designed by Ricardo Tisci, who also dressed West for the Met that night. Kardashian shared that Tisci had the idea to make the dress out of floral patterns because it held the meaning of giving pregnant women flowers.
However, the internet quickly launched into making memes out of Kardashian’s outfit instead. Many social media users started comparing the dress to couches, and it was soon dubbed “The Couch Dress.”
Kardashian admitted that she “was crying the whole way home” from the gala after seeing the memes.
Other memes about Kim Kardashian that are a lot worse
Kardashian has shared that she felt insecure when pregnant because of how her body changed, which would explain why the memes of her Met Gala dress really took a toll on her self-confidence. However, this was not the first or the last time that Kardashian was made into a hurtful meme.
For example, the way Kardashian and her sisters talk is very famous and people have been making fun of them for it since their show first premiered in 2007. One YouTube user is known for utilizing their speech patterns to make parody videos of the sisters. Many of the videos get hundreds of thousands of views, and some have even gone viral.
Meanwhile, some of the faces that Kardashian made on TV have been used as reaction images as well. Her crying face is especially popular among internet users.
The Kardashian-Jenner family sometimes profits off of memes
While these memes do not always treat the Kardashian-Jenner family in a nice way, it is important to note that the Kardashian-Jenners do use them to their advantage sometimes.
Earlier this year, Kylie Jenner managed to profit it off of her own meme. After she sang “rise to shine” to her daughter in a YouTube video, the internet started making fun of her and turned her singing into a viral meme.
Jenner joined in on the joke by liking and sharing some of these funny posts. At the same time, she also capitalized on the meme’s popularity by selling apparel with the words “rise and shine” on them.
Some people applauded Jenner’s business sense, though a lot of social media users were quick to criticize her for trying to make money off of an internet joke. There were many tweets going around about how Jenner had “ruined her own meme” and that people did not find it funny anymore.
