Ever since Kim Kardashian sparked the public’s interest, she has become a never-ending fixture in the celebrity world. There are a number of people that refuse to recognize her as a true celebrity, especially since her biggest claim to fame was a sex tape she made with Brandy’s brother, Ray J. Although it undoubtedly helped her to land a reality series which went on to become a huge success, it was still just another aspect of her career that fueled the fire to those that believe she’s not a real celebrity. Famous for being famous, Kim Kardashian’s entire career has been filled with a series of over-the-top moments that managed to keep her on the forefront of the headlines. From Twitter feuds to relationship breakups, there seems to always be a new reason to “Keep Up with Kim Kardashian.”
While there are those that are still captivated by her and all of the details of her professional and personal life, there are others that are completely over the whole fascination of her “celebrity” lifestyle. In fact, there have been a number of occasions when the eye rolls have been practically audible whenever a new Kim Kardashian news story pops up. Yet, it doesn’t seem like she is going to go anywhere anytime soon. Even after the break she took from the public life after her nightmare robbery in Europe, she’s already back to her old antics again. Check out our list of the 15 times the world wanted to slap Kim Kardashian and see how quickly public opinion can change.
15. Full Glam Squad On Call For Birth
In 2013, Kim Kardashian was preparing to give birth to her first child with husband, Kanye West. Keeping Up with the Kardashians showed how Kim was progressing in her pregnancy and it became apparent that her priorities weren’t exactly in the right place. When her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, began asking her the preliminary questions about how prepared she was to give birth, it didn’t seem like Kim had put much thought into it. Yet, she did put an abundance of thought into how she was planning to look. In anticipation of the big day, Kim had booked her entire glam team of hair and makeup professionals to be “on call,” which actually hindered her sisters from booking any of them for their own personal appearances. Things got so out of control, Brandon Jenner’s wife, Leah Felder, forced her to get out of her comfort zone and leave all the hair and makeup out of the equation. Seeing Kim put more emphasis on what she looked like rather than things she needed for the baby was definitely slap-worthy.
14. Disgusting Behavior With Kris Humphries
By the time Kim Kardashian became romantically linked to Kris Humphries, the world was already starting to see her as used goods. It would be hard to convince the world that this time she had actually found true love, especially when she had previously proclaimed her feelings for former boyfriends, Ray J and Reggie Bush. Whether it was an effort to prove to audiences that she had an extremely close relationship with Humphries or she was just showing a new form of intimacy, there were a number of Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ episodes that showed some disgusting behavior. One of the episodes showed Humphries chewing food in his mouth and then passing it on to Kim, where she ate a giant mouthful. In another scene, the couple is seen burping into each other’s mouths.
13. Rebound Hookup After Reggie
The world first became acquainted with Kim Kardashian as the woman in the sex tape with Ray J and it took a lot of diversion in order for her to try and distance herself from her seedy past. The reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, was a great way to get fans to see her as more than just an amateur future porn star. When she was shown heads over heels in love with Reggie Bush, it seemed like she would finally get her fairytale ending and people could just put her Ray J days behind her. Yet, the relationship with Reggie didn’t work out and Kim immediately jumped in with fellow professional athlete, Miles Austin. Rather than giving it a while before jumping back into the sack with yet another man, Kim chose to flaunt her new man around town and especially in the reality show. This only made it look like she was even more of an opportunist and definitely diminished how audiences viewed her relationship with Reggie Bush.
12. Petty Manipulation Over A Car Wash
While the majority of the general public weren’t familiar with Kim Kardashian until the scandalous release of her sex tape with Ray J or the start of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she’s actually been a staple in the celebrity world due to her rich and famous parents. Kim grew up in a life of luxury and always had the best things in life because of her famed lawyer father, Robert Kardashian. So, when Kim was seen on an episode of her reality show pawning off her car wash bill to her ex-boyfriend, Reggie Bush, it was beyond petty. In the episode, Reggie even called Kim to dispute it and it became a big ordeal in the episode. It made Kim look petty, manipulative and even more like a user, rather than a woman that has been born into a life of luxury.
11. Release Of Taylor Swift Snapchat Video
The world has become accustomed to the over-the-top antics of Kanye West, from proclaiming, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” on national television to snatching away Taylor Swift’s microphone on the stage at the VMAs. Yet, Kim Kardashian had previously always tried to stay out of the fray. She was thought of as a completely separate entity from her maniacal husband but all of that changed when she released Snapchat videos of a conversation between Kanye and Taylor. The video was released in order to show that Kanye actually did have permission to use Taylor Swift in his song and perhaps it was meant to show that Taylor was playing the victim. Yet, it completely backfired since the video also showed that Taylor didn’t know the extent of the lyrics Kanye was using and the fact that Kim posted a conversation where Taylor didn’t even know she was being recorded was just the final kicker.
10. Block Blac Chyna From Kardashian Name
When Rob Kardashian first became linked to Blac Chyna, it came as a shock to the rest of the world because of the already complicated family dynamic regarding her ex, Tyga. Yet, no one was as shocked as the Kardashian sisters. Even though Blac Chyna and Kim Kardashian had previously been thought of as good friends, all those social media posts and photos didn’t seem to really show Kim’s inner feelings about having her in the family. Chyna filed papers to try and trademark the name, Angela Renee Kardashian, which wouldn’t be that noteworthy if not for the brand Kardashian name. Kim, Kourtney and Khloe decided to try and stop her from doing so and cited that it would diminish the brand if she were involved. This is slap-worthy since Kim already did all she could have ever done to diminish the quality of the Kardashian brand through her various pictorial spreads and videos.
9. Paper Magazine Spread
For the Winter 2014 issue of Paper magazine, Kim Kardashian posed for the cover and a pictorial spread that was meant to literally, “Break the Internet.” Obviously, Paper magazine knew exactly the route to take since they had Kim pose in various states of undress in a way that made her Playboy shoot look tame. From the full frontal shot to the oiled up derriere, this was shockingly more nude than she had ever appeared in (unless you count her sex tape). While it almost quite literally broke the Internet, it also made people want to slap her for continuing on the same journey she started during the start of her career. Instead of trying to put that part of her life in the past, she seemed to lower her standards and undid all the work she put into her career in trying to distance herself from those types of depictions.
8. 72-Day Marriage
When Kim Kardashian first started pushing the Kris Humphries relationship down the throats of the public, it seemed fabricated from the start. She had already been in relationships with so many other celebrities and this just seemed like another notch on an already tattered belt. While there were moments when the couple shared a few tender moments that were captured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the demise of their relationship was already being predicted even before they walked down the aisle. Yet, she went through with the wedding and it became a huge, staged fiasco that was, of course, seen in her reality series. The breakup was practically immediate and resulted in a 72-day marriage that made the public feel duped. It’s hard to tell whether or not it was a real relationship that just didn’t work out or just another way for Kim to try and garner more attention for herself.
7. Selfie Book
As the self-proclaimed, “Queen of the Selfies,” Kim Kardashian is known for her obsessive nature when it comes to posting photos of herself on the Internet. While celebrities are known for taking photos and sharing them with their fans, Kim has garnered a reputation of having a much more narcissistic take on her social media sites. Just when the public thought that Kim couldn’t get any more vain, she announced that she was going to be releasing a book of only selfies. She teamed up with Rizzoli and published a book of photos, called Selfish. It came with 300 selfies, including 115 cleavage photos. It spans a nine year period and buyer’s remorse comes absolutely free with the low retail cost that was originally just $19.95.
6. Topless For Haters
This isn’t the first time Kim Kardashian has posed topless and it definitely isn’t the first time she’s posted a scantily clad photo for her social media site. Yet, there is something extra desperate in this particular topless shot from March 30, 2016. Actress, Emily Ratajkowski, joined her in this topless shot, which wouldn’t be the first Kim has tried to align herself with other celebrities in order to boost her own fame. Yet, this might be a mutual using situation since Ratajkowski’s biggest claim to fame was a minuscule part in the film, Gone Girl. In any case, this seems like just another desperate cry for attention. Piers Morgan retweeted the photo and captioned it with, “If women genuinely think this photo advocates women’s rights & equality, then feminism as it was intended is dead.”
5. Naked Blonde Selfie
Kim Kardashian has been known to overshare on her social media sites and it’s always been met with a fair share of praise and criticism. While there are those that are still amazed at her good looks and hourglass figure, there are others that wish she would find a new trick to pull out of the same old hat. Shortly after the frenzy regarding her Paper magazine photoshoot, Kim decided to take to Instagram and post a selfie of herself – completely naked. In the photo, she has the new blonde hairstyle that she tried for a bit (and failed at). She can be seen posing for the camera in a straight-on position with a seductive look on her face. Many criticized her for doing something so scandalous even though she is a mother but she’s never acted in the typical mom fashion. Regardless, this seemed like an act of desperation of “look at me” in a way that made the public think that she’s finally reached an all-new low.
4. Kim Vs. PETA
Kim Kardashian has never been shy to show off her love of animal fur and has consistently added fur details in her ensembles ever since the start of her career. She’s been repeatedly slammed by animal rights activist groups for years and has even been publicly shamed for her refusal to opt for faux fur. Her sister, Khloe, was deeply moved by seeing some of the atrocities to animals due to the craze over their fur and even participated in a campaign for PETA. Yet, Kim has never been swayed from her love affair of real fur and she’s even had her daughter participate. This particular photo shows Kim and North all wrapped up in fur while walking the cold streets of New York City. It’s hard to say what is more deplorable in this photo, the fact that North is wearing real fur or the fact that Kim has no qualms about throwing away thousands of dollars on a coat that North will grow out of by the time the next winter comes around.
3. Oblivious To Her Own Child
Kim Kardashian has created a reputation for herself of being completely self-centered. When it was revealed that she was going to be a mother, people didn’t know whether she would be able to transition into the Mom state-of-mind of having to put someone else first. They definitely got their answer once North began appearing in various videos and photos alongside Kim as the absentee mother. North has fallen a number of times and there always seems to be someone else there to help her up or at least give her some attention while Kim appears to be completely oblivious. Some of the most cringe-worthy moments of watching Kim as a mom is the fact that she always seems to be too preoccupied to actually parent her own children.
2. Not A Kid-Friendly Venue
One of the best things about being a celebrity is the fact that there are so many opportunities to attend prestigious events. From walking the red carpet to going to Hollywood hotspots, celebrities are privy to some of the most glamorous events and venues around the world. Yet, that doesn’t always bode well for parents since everyone knows that not all venues are considered kid-friendly. Kim Kardashian apparently doesn’t care about whether or not her daughter, North, enjoys herself when they go out since she has repeatedly taken her to fashion shows where she isn’t exactly having fun. While not all parents have the best time taking their kids to bouncy house venues, they all make the sacrifice for their kids so that they can enjoy their childhoods. Someone forgot to tell Kim that little tidbit about parenting.
1. Butt X-Ray
The rumors regarding Kim Kardashian surgically enhancing her derriere have been circulating for years and have gained even more steam since there have been so many photos emerge from her earlier years. She has offered up a myriad of different reasons why her backside seems to have magically grown seemingly overnight. From her body maturing as she grew older to her pregnancies to a “special” workout routine to help amplify her derriere, there was always an excuse that never pointed to surgical enhancements. In an attempt to prove that her backside was all-real, she actually had it x-rayed during an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. While implants would have shown up in the x-rays, injections wouldn’t appear and that is what made this whole scenario so slap-worthy. The x-ray didn’t prove anything and even the doctor seemed uncomfortable with the line of questioning in the episode.
