“Please Stop Supporting These Stupid, Harmful Celebrities:” People Call Out Unhealthy Beauty Stereotypes Being Promoted At The Met Gala After Kim K Crash-Diets To Fit Into Marilyn Monroe’s Dress

One of the biggest fundraising nights in the New York City Met Gala seemed to spread quite the wrong message for many this year. The event, regarded as the world’s most prestigious event in the fashion industry, received major backlash online for promoting unhealthy beauty standards.

One of the most anticipated guests of the night, an icon in the fashion industry, Kim Kardashian, showed up to the fundraiser wearing an original Marilyn Monroe dress she wore to President John F. Kennedy’s birthday celebration in 1962. Kim admitted losing 16 pounds in just 3 weeks to fit into the dress, now valued at over $10 million.

Many people, including celebrities, felt that going on a crash diet just to fit into a dress for one night was too extreme and promoted unhealthy dieting. The “Riverdale” actress Lili Reinhart went on to her social media to call out the “stupid, harmful celebrities” taking extreme measures to “fit in a f***ing dress.” Although Lili didn’t mention any name, the followers interpreted that Lili referred to Kim Kardashian.

People Post Their Reactions To Elon Musk’s Daughter Fully Cutting Ties With Her Father After Coming Out As Transgender (14 posts)

Elon Musk can’t stay away from drama, can’t he? With the Twitter takeover, all Tesla employees have to return to the office drama, involvement in the Amber Heard case, and now this… this is the life of the rich and famous, we suppose. Entertaining for us? Yes. Much fun for him? Not really.

Those who’ve been following the news already know that one of Musk’s children filed the paperwork required for a name change, recognition of a change of gender, and the issuance of a new birth certificate. The teenager filed the paperwork with a Santa Monica court in April, shortly after her birthday.

“Gender identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form,” was the official reason the teenager stated in a petition. Billionaire and Justine Wilson’s daughter decided to legally change her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson, adopting her mother’s previous last name, ultimately cutting ties with her biological father, Elon Musk.

Reactions to and discussions about this entire situation have been flooding the internet. To see how the whole situation played out, scroll below and leave a comment with your own thoughts.
