Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Shapewear Controversy
Kim Kardashian revealed all in a new interview with the Wall Street Journal.
In case you forgot, Kim announced her new shapewear line called Kimono. But soon after, folks expressed concern over the name, launching the hashtag #KimOhNo, and citing that it was a case of cultural appropriation.
