I do have concerns about her diet comments, but I tend to agree that our society will criticize a rich and successful woman for anything, especially if she refuses to feel guilty.
Kim is criticized so much, she strategically uses it to her advantage! Anytime there’s a controversy, her empire earns more exposure, clicks, money etc. She’s complicated and problematic, yet brilliant.

Thank you for the thought provoking read!
