Controversies and Kardashians seem to go hand-in-hand these days. The entire clan seems to always be caught up in some scandal or mess that they either choose to ignore and go on with their lives, or lash back. Kim Kardashian seems to have made the former, her motto.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality television star made quite a controversial style statement recently. She sported the Indian origin maan tikka – a jeweld headpiece worn on special occasions with ethnic outfits, for her church service. The beauty mogul posted two pictures of herself with the accessory on her Instagram page with a caption that read “Sunday Service Vibe”.

Her Instagram followers seemed unimpressed with the way the mother of three had styled herself – with the maang tikka and matching gold earrings. Despite being criticised, her photo got almost 2 million likes on the platform. Users complained about the accessory not being “Sunday Service vibe” but “Indian vibe” instead. Users also called her out for wearing the Indian accessory to a Christian service. “She probably thought it was just jewellery but when that piece has literally been used for centuries wouldn’t you think there must be some sort of significant meaning held towards it?” another pointed out.

In the midst of all this, an Indian stepped in to compliment the star. She said she thought Kim looks great and “quite frankly don’t care what she wears. We all get influenced by each other’s cultures and ethnicities we should be honorured that such a stylish woman appreciates our culture instead.”
