    Kim Kardashian Is Facing Backlash For Her Cringe, Self-Promotional Pride Month Tweet

    Thanks, Kim?

    In case you didn't know, June is Pride Month, a month where we celebrate all things LGBTQ!

    Celebrities have taken to Twitter to wish their queer fans a Happy Pride:

    Love always wins. Sending you ALL love, light and a happy #PRIDE Month β€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

    Well, Kim Kardashian tweeted about Pride, but it was definitely a little weird and self-centered. Obviously, not surprising.

    E!

    Last week, Kim tweeted and posted this on her Instagram story, writing, "Happy Pride Month! I love how there are so many ways to express yourself in my game!" with a graphic of herself and a link to her game.

    Happy Pride Month! I love how there are so many ways to express yourself in my game! @KKHOfficial https://t.co/RY2SozLdCU

    People thought it was cringe, self-promotional, and just a very Kim-centric way to "celebrate" Pride:

    @KimKardashian not your only Pride tweet being an advertisement

    @KimKardashian @KKHOfficial "Happy Pride! Here's a shameless ad for my game!" Stop that.

    It even became a meme with screenshots of just Kim's post getting tens of thousands of likes.

    Here's a heads-up, Kim: Pride is not about you or profiting off LGBTQ fans. Do better!

    E!

    Kim has not responded to the backlash, but we will update you if she does.
