Kim Kardashian transformed herself into the Virgin Mary for her latest Kimoji merchandise drop.
The reality star appears in the traditional guise of the mother of Jesus on a candle.
With her serene face and dignified headdress she looks the part – but fans were not impressed.
The image appears on a candle and was criticised for being “disrespectful” by fans.
“This is a disgrace you’re trying to make money from our faith. No you aren’t a virgin no Kanye is not a god. Are you trying to start your own religion?100% disrespect,” one fan commented.
“Kim how dare you, you are claiming yourself as a Christian but yet you’re comparing yourself to our Virgin Mother Mary,” another added.
“You won’t see this now but your day is coming when you’ll be judged,” a third fan wrote.
Meanwhile, Kim is clearly obsessed with religious symbolism as she was spotted filming scenes for Keeping Up With The Kardashians on Thursday in Los Angeles wearing a dress emblazoned with the image of the Virgin Mary.
After recently dropping 6lbs, mum-of-two Kim was showcased her trim figure in a see-through, clinging black mini-dress which she teamed with strappy heels.
The reality beauty’s cream knickers and bra were on full display underneath the thin fabric.
The previous day, Kim came under fire when she suggested she’d lost weight thanks to a “flu diet”.
The reality beauty took to Twitter to celebrate her 6lb weight loss, but angered some fans in the process.
She posted on the site: “The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown.”
But what was probably intended as a light-hearted tweet, upset a few people.
One person commented, “People die from the flu Kim, it’s not a diet,” while another wrote, “Really into this new fad diet kim k is talking about called the flu.”
