As you probably know, Kim Kardashianwore Marilyn Monroe's 1962 dress — which Marilyn wore when she iconically sang "Happy Birthday" to then-president John F. Kennedy — to the Met Gala this year.
Kim controversially revealed that she lost 16 pounds in one week so she could "fit" into the dress, and even shared footage of her and her team trying to adjust/stretch the garment onto her.
Well, this week, it was reported that the iconic dress was permanently damaged after Kim wore it, and people had some thoughts.
Some were like, "This is rich people shit."
Others memed/joked about the whole situation:
And then OTHERS were outraged by the whole alleged incident and how it represented yet another form of exploiting Marilyn Monroe:
"As a historian, this hurts not because it damaged 'history,' but because people still treat Marilyn Monroe and her things as public," one person wrote. "Her face, her body, her image, her person is not seen as HERS either then or now and she deserves much more than to be anyone's symbol."
Kim Kardashian has not responded to the dress situation, but we'll be sure to update you if she does.
