American reality TV star Kim Kardashian’s photo shoot for Vogue India has met the same fate as her sister’s, Kendall Jenner. In 2017, Vogue India selected Kendall for their cover shoot and this time it was Kim. Kim K and Vogue, the both, shared the pictures of the shoot on social media platforms and faced a backlash.
They unveiled the March issue of 2018 and Kim looked stunning in the pictures but there are a few people who disagree.

Twitterati bombarded her post with hate comments and said it isn’t quite acceptable for them to see someone from the other country on the cover of Vogue India. Here is how they reacted:
As much as I dislike the Kardashians. Does that mean if @voguemagazine puts a person from India on the cover here in the states can we be pissed or is this just an one-sided issue?

I also don’t get why people are mad that they put someone from a different country. However, I’d get it if they were mad about Kim being on the cover. I just want vogue to have Priyanka Chopra on their US cover just to make things even lol.

Oh my gosh. You are not the only woman in this world.

So you’re going to bash on a woman who took an opportunity rather than the magazine company who is responsible for choosing who goes on their front cover? I agree with you, I do, however you’ve got the wrong target.

Last year, Victoria’s Secret model Kendall Jenner was under fire for the same reason. However, after the criticism, the magazine issued a statement saying, “In the last 10 years, Vogue India has had only 12 international covers, including Kendall Jenner in 2017. Therefore, statistically, 90 percent of our covers are Indian! And we are proud of that. India has given the world so many beautiful faces to admire. After all, we are Vogue, an international brand, and we want to give the love back by featuring some of the best international celebrities on our covers. Occasionally!”
Maybe, Indian viewers are not still over Kim Kardashian ‘disgusting’ comment on Indian food in an episode of her popular show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’. One of the Twitter users actually mentioned it and this might be one out of several reasons she is getting the heat.
