Kim Kardashian releases new feminism-themed Kimojis, sparks huge debate online

The internet is divided over Kim Kardashian’s emojis that were launched on International Women’s Day on March 8. Kim dropped a bumper collection of feminist emojis that have sparked a huge debate around feminism online.

The new sticker pack is an addition to the Kimoji series featuring slogans including ‘My Body My Choice’ and ‘Fulltime Feminist’. The bumper pack costs a whopping USD 2.99. The emojis feature lots of booty, boobs, panties and even a stripper pole.

Kim took to the Twitter and wrote, “Download the new KIMOJI in honor of #InternationalWomensDay.”

Back in 2016, Kim faced a similar backlash after dropping a censored image of her naked body online. At the time, she defended her decision to post the snap in a blog post but was reluctant to actually label herself as a feminist.

“For me, feminist is someone who advocates for the civil and social rights and liberties of all people, regardless of their gender; anyone who believes that women should have the same choices and opportunities as men when it comes to education and employment, their bodies and their lifestyles,” the 37-year-old wrote in a 2016 post on her web portal.

However, she clarified her stance to Harper’s Bazaar Arabia last August, and said, “I feel in my soul I’m a feminist. I just don’t need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside. Modern feminists are all the girls around us today. There’s such an amazing group of girls that empower each other.”

While some users say the emojis are far from being feminist friendly while some have praised the latest round of kimojis for promoting gender equality and embracing girl power.

Some users have also stood up for Kim, pointing out that there’s no one right way to be a feminist. A user took to the Twitter and wrote, “I love the message behind the new Kimojis.”

Even, some users were frustrated with the amount of money being charged. “The USA President has allegations of an affair with a porn star, Kim Kardashian is selling feminism emojis for $2.99; our country is a mess,” a user tweeted.

The mother of three Kardashian first launched the KIMOJI app in December 2015, hitting No. 1 in Apple’s App Store within one day of its debut.
