Is Kim Kardashian a fake feminist?

Kim Kardashian has branded her own female empowerment emojis called Kimojis, and they're getting mixed reactions from the Internet. Some feminists are embracing Kim's message of supporting women, but others aren't supporting her. Critics are blasting Kim because, just one year ago, she refused to call herself a feminist—but now she's trying to market Kimojis to women for a profit? They aren't having it. Still, others argue women should support women. What do you think?

Yahoo! Lifestyle reports that some view Kimojis as a way for Kim to come out as a feminist, others say she's just trying to make money off of the movement (for $2.99 per Kimoji). 

Kardashian’s feminist fans are taking her new Kimoji’s as her coming out moment – and they’re thrilled. Last year, the reality star refused to call herself a feminist. “I said once before that I’m not really a feminist, but I feel I do a lot more than people that claim that they’re feminist,” she told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. “To clarify what I said before: I feel in my soul I’m a feminist. I just don’t need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside.”
Well, Kardashian’s feminist label has arrived — and you can buy it for $2.99.
While the overall message behind Kim’s Women’s Empowerment Kimoji’s is inspiring, some fans couldn’t help but notice how the mother of three is only willing to bare this label now that it’s profitable to her.

Although she's a woman, some are saying Kim is just co-opting the feminist movement for a profit.
