You can’t Fix Stupid Friday–Japan might have a word to say about this edition

https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-kim-kardashian-kimono-trademark-cultural-appropriation-20190625-story.html

Does anybody know why the Kardashians are famous? Other than, IDK, being famous?

And can you actually trademark a word like ‘kimono’? Because seriously, Kim K. What the bloody hell?

Kimonos are not, at least I suppose not in the traditional sense, shapewear. And there are a thousand other things you could call your shapewear that’s not cultural appropriation or going to

A) Make you look like an idiot (#KimOhNo)

or

B) piss off millions of Japanese around the world.

 

THESE are kimonos.  THIS is not, Kimmy darling. And good luck trying to deal with the social backlash that’s already happening because you’re trying to trademark not just a garment name, but an entire INDUSTRY for crying out loud. It’s like you’re so stupid (is it because you’re rich? Is there something that happens when you become rich that you lose all your brain cells? Is that it?) that you don’t even care if it offends people because you’re going to do it anyway.

Because you’re rich and you think it’s cool.

Because you can.

Because you’re rich and you can say “Screw you, haters.” to everybody if they don’t like it even if negatively affects your brand.

Because this isn’t the first nor will it be the last time you’ve done something incredibly, incredibly dumb.

Because you probably won’t even see what the big deal is that people are “OMG!!” making a fuss about. You probably won’t even give a crap. Because you’re rich.

 

Pass the tequila.
