      Kimberly shared a few pictures from her recent photoshoot in a shimmery red gown teamed up with a full-sleeve floral blazer. The look was completed with her hair styled in unique pleats, nude lips and red eye shadow. The pictures didn't sit well with the Indian fans due to the oversized hoop earrings with 'Om' carved on them.

      Soon after, netizens called her out for 'cultural appropriation' and have also demanded an apology from Kim Kardashian. Apart from fans, the star was also slammed by Hindu statesman and President of Universal Society of Hinduism Rajan Zed.

      Zed in a statement said that 'Om' is a mystical syllable used by Hindus to introduce and conclude religious work, and added that it is not meant to be used as a fashion statement. Zen urged Kim Kardashian to immediately remove the three pictures from her Twitter account as it was deeply trivializing of immensely revered Om' to be displayed in such a manner.
