Why Is Kim Kardashian In Such Hot Water Over Spider-Man?

Kim Kardashian, oh my! You have the most absurd things to say and do, don’t you?

After watching the newest movie, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” the millionaire businesswoman, who has been making headlines for her brief affair with Pete Davidson, has drawn ire from Marvel fans. Even though it was a social media gaffe to remember, Kardashian is no stranger to controversy.

One of the most obvious (and common) criticisms leveled at the reality star is the fact that she and her family have frequently come under fire on social media for cultural appropriation, frequently for imitating Black culture. In another incident in 2019, Kardashian faced criticism for launching SKIMS, her shapewear line, which was formerly known as Kimono. Even the mayor of Kyoto, Daisaku Kadokawa, wrote a letter to Kardashian pleading with her to “re-consider [her] decision of utilizing the word Kimono in [her] trademark” (via Japan Today). She subsequently expressed regret and said, “My purpose was never to insult anybody,” in an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (via PopBuzz), showing that she had taken the mayor’s advice to heart.

Kim Kardashian is once again in a tough place, but this time it has nothing to do with appropriation and everything to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This may have been an unintentional mistake on her part.

Kim Kardashian spoiled a major scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home

Fear not, Nicki Swift reader, there are no “Spider-Man: No Way Home” spoilers in this part. What Kim Kardashian had to say about the movie, however, is not comparable because she broke one of the internet’s most important rules: no spoilers!

Following the disclosure of a significant incident in the brand-new “Spider-Man: No Way Home” movie on December 27, the businessman experienced the wrath of social media. Fans were upset when Kardashian shared spoilers from the movie’s climax on her Instagram Stories while watching from what seemed to be a home theater.

Nothing says privilege like watching a movie in your private theater and ruining it for those of us who are trying to stay at home and safe, a Twitter user remarked. “I thought the SpiderMan ending would get spoiled from ALOT of places on social media for me, but never in @KimKardashian’s insta stories.” One other person responded, “I’ve turned off all Spider-Man-related notifications on my social media accounts since I plan to watch the movie tomorrow. Just for Kim Kardashian to publish a massive spoiler on Instagram.”

Although Kardashian quickly removed the postings, the harm had already been done. Fans may now find it difficult to attend the movie, which just surpassed $1 billion at the global box office, according to NBC News. But if you’ve seen the movie, please don’t give it away to others who haven’t!
