Are the Kardashians culture vultures?

The Kardashians are the most recognizable family in America. The clan has been sharing their lives with the world since 2007 and show no signs of slowing down. The Kardashians are loved for their style and beauty and as a family unit, their contributions to the beauty and fashion industry are unparalleled. But the family has also been criticized over the years for appropriating various cultures. Most recently Kim Kardashian caught slack for appropriating Japanese culture. Are the Kardashians culture vultures?

The Kardashians are revered as smart and savvy business people who always stay one foot ahead of the trends. They may be full of controversy but know how to make a business deal, especially Kim. According to Vanity Fair

Say what you will about Kim Kardashian West, but one thing is for certain: when it comes to business, she knows what she is doing. The reality-television star has leveraged her social-media following—which totals nearly 150 million people across Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook—to build a personal brand arguably more influential than those of most Fortune 500 companies, and has amassed a net worth of $52.5 million along the way. Though she may have gained notoriety for her non-business exploits, West’s wildly successful trio of mobile apps—Kimoji, Kim Kardashian West, and mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood—are a testament to her innate ability to spot trends and identify what people want before they even know they want it.

Kim recently debuted her new line of shapewear, Kimono and immediately caught backlash. Kimono refers to a long wide-sleeved robe worn in Japan, so many were furious that Kim would choose to name her line of underwear after respected Japanese garb.

To add fuel the fire, Kim allegedly trademarked the name Kimono which set Twitter ablaze.
