Another day, another Kardashian misstep. People were already mad at Kim for her comment earlier this week, when she said that the flu is the most amazing diet (what? it’s true), and now she’s released a new set of Kimojis, including one that likens her to The Virgin Mary on a candle. Needless to say, the internet is pissed.

Well, except for this girl:

But literally everyone else is, citing cultural appropriation, insensitivity and blasphemy, even if Kim is actually like, the last person to put her face on a candle, since Etsy shops have been selling these ridiculous things for years. Still, people love to hate her and a tone-deaf religious mistake is as good a reason as any. I mean, obviously, this is offensive (and just plain dumb), but what more can you expect from a girl who’s literally willing to market her own sex tape? Distasteful emojis are the least of it. Though, now that Kim’s like, ~extra Christian~, with all her Kardashian family church snaps, the #ChristiansBoycottKim hashtag might actually hurt.
@KimKardashian If anything, your face deserves to be on the fire inside the candle.

@KimKardashian The Sacred Heart on Virgin KiMary candle is accurate.
Kim’s heart is the only part of her body that HASN’T been violated.

Poor Kim, she’s just trying to survive like the rest of us.
