Kim Kardashian has shut down claims she edited images in her latest Skims campaign after fans pointed out her weirdly shaped finger.
In the advert, Kim is seen her in nude underwear claiming it ‘Fits Everybody’, but left fans believed it was ‘faking inclusivity’ after many spotted the moment when one of her fingers didn’t look right while it rested on her hip.
The 40-year-old came under fire after fans took to social media to highlight the strange occurrence in her advert before a rep for Skims clarified the issue.
It was explained that a glitch in the uploading of the commercial caused one of Kim’s fingers to look distorted, prompting the public backlash.
‘The Skims commercial that aired last week featuring the Fits Everybody collection did initially have an error as a result of the video losing its quality during the uploading process,’ the Skims rep told Page Six.
The controversy came just days after the KKW Beauty founder was accused of cultural appropriation after wearing earrings inspired by Hindu culture.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star donned hoop earrings featuring the Om symbol, a sacred sound of Indian religions.
Reality regular Kim had shared pictures from the photoshoot in which she was wearing the jewellery on social media.
However, while Kim may have been pleased with the shots, not all of her followers were as impressed, with one person tweeting: ‘Hinduism isn’t an aesthetic.’
Hitting the caps key, one Twitter user exclaimed: ‘STOP CULTURAL APPROPRIATION OF INDIAN CULTURE!!! WHAT’S UP WITH THOSE EARINGS GIRLLLL???’
Another person wrote: ‘Om is sacred symbol of hindu… What the hell she doing with that.
‘Leave our culture and religion alone,’ protested another person.
However, not all people were as harsh on the businesswoman, with some social media fans encouraging other to see things in a different light.
Standing up for the television personality, someone posted: ‘Maybe instead of being mad at Kim, be mad at the person who made the earrings…
‘I’m sure they weren’t made in India and I’m sure if they were the maker would be happy that Kim is wearing them.’
