Over the summer, there was some talk about Kim Kardashian and how her fame may be waning, especially now that her younger sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, are coming into their own as career women and social media mavens. At the time, Kim was celebrating having 40 million Instagram followers, and some of us suspected that she “bought” several million followers just so she could be the most “popular” person in her family on IG. Well, six months later, and now Kim is celebrating having 55 million IG followers. She posted the above IG, her first selfie since she gave birth to SAINT WEST. Her hair looks good.

Meanwhile, Kim also celebrated her social media stardom by launching her Kimojis. They are special emojis which are related to what people “love” about Kim: her cryface, her body, her middle finger, etc. God help me, but I love the Kim-cryface emoji. I’m not much of an emoji person (I’m too old for that crap), but if I had Kimojis, I would use the cryface one constantly.

    Has to be purchased fans or I am losing faith in humanity. What will it take to get rid of these people? Footage of them killing puppies?!

    • MonicaQ says:

      They’re definitely purchased.

      • Wentworth Miller says:

        There’s a site that tracks social media followings and wrote some story about how none of those people have ever gotten more than 3,000 followers over the course of a month. When the younger J girl got more followers than the sister that she’s turning into, all of a sudden, the K girl announced that she had gained something like 2 million followers over night just so that she could say that she once again had more followers than anyone in the family. Yes. The followers are purchased spam accounts.

      • word says:

        @ Wentworth

        Maybe those “purchased followers” were her push present from Kanye? Man what a waste of money.

      • Jib says:

        I see other jewelers on Instagram who supposedly have 24K followers, and they only get a few hundred likes on their pictures. I have about 1400 followers and regularly get over 100 LIkes on my pictures. Those 24K followers are nonexistent people.

    • Zip says:

      There are so many fake spam accounts. Just look at the comments these people get. They are full of spam.

  3. Brittney B. says:

    …aaaand I just got the meaning of “peaches and cream”.

  4. Cara says:

    I’m ready for the apocalypse. Seriously.

    • Kelly says:

      It’s here, and it’s leader is Satan’s Homegirl. Thank you Celebitchy for the best nickname EVER.

  5. Lama Bean says:

    That topless emoji clearly demonstrates her warped view of her body. Actually, the ass emoji does too.

    I swear I don’t understand this phenomenon.

  6. Pants says:

    I’m with you, Kaiser. That cry face one is cracking me up!

  7. kri says:

    This b!tch has more hustle than Saturday Night Fever. I can’t take it. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  8. dagdag says:

    55 million followers and barely 2 millions watching the show in the US?

    • prissa says:

      @DAGDAG – EXACTLY!!! It all points to Fake Accounts.

      • nicole says:

        And only 3000 of her selfie books were supposedly only sold, were are all these fans, because if you were a fan wouldnt you love to buy a book with all her pics and selfies in.

  9. Lindy79 says:

    Everything about these tricks is a Kim Cry Face emoji

  10. littlemissnaughty says:

    I don’t buy the 55 million. No way. But I do think some of these kimojis are hilarious. Others are just … useless? To whom would I ever send that rack?

    • Mimz says:

      Sexting maybe? I mean, either when you’re talking shit with your friends or sexting those emojis can do a “safer” work than sending nudes ahahahahaha. But I admit, I would use them (if they were for free).

    • FingerBinger says:

      I don’t buy it either. Her followers are fake or bought.

    • rice_bunny says:

      It’s true. A good percentage of her followers (other celebrities as well) are fake/spam accounts. I know this because even I have lately been getting a lot of random “followers”…and when I check their accounts they have 0 posts and their captions say something like “Click on this link if you want more instagram followers…”

  11. Karen says:

    A creamed peach bottom. Keep it klassy.

    I know Terry Richardson’s new favorite kimoji.

  12. fiona says:

    I have a friend on facebook who poses like KK. It drives me mental. Such a self absorbed moron.

  13. Tiffany27 says:

    I am weeping for the world my child is about to inherit.

  14. Crack Fox says:

    The kimoji thing is branding/marketing genius.

    I want nothing more than to knock the hustle, but I can’t.

    • StormsMama says:


      And God help me but this is the ONE product of hers (including her show) that I like. These kimojis are (gulp) great.

      • me says:

        But what’s really great about them? Whoever made these emoji’s just copied memes people use of Kim on twitter.

  15. Tulsa says:

    What we can surmise from this is that there are in fact 55 million idiots in the world….

  16. Alarive says:

    Those Kimojis are really, really fun. I would LOVE to have my own emojis.

  17. Kelly says:

    This makes me ill. Just when you think that the lowest common denominator is met, the Kardashians go one level lower. Truly nauseating. How is she going to spin some of this stuff.

  18. iseepinkelefants says:

    Where do you get the kimojis? I want the cry face one so I can throw shade.

  19. SydneySnider says:

    I’m not buying the 55 million followers/fans, or whatever they’re called, either. If you look on her photos, featured on DM (I had to ask my daughter what those numbers mean!), you’ll see she gets 200,000 or so “likes”. Why isn’t this figure up in the millions – even the low millions? I’ve never seen their show, but by all accounts it’s losing viewers with each season. They still have their due-hard fans, of course, but I believe their/her “popularity” is waning. Yet, every few months, she suddenly has an extra 5 millions fans on her IG? It just doesn’t add up. Hasn’t she been busted buying fake followers before? And she’s a habitual liar, so…. Besides, what does it say about her narcissism – or lack of confidence – that she must have the adoration of perfect strangers she’ll never meet, and worse, dummy/fake followers?

    I’m not one for emojis either, and if anyone sent me one of hers, I’d hunt them down and slap them into the middle of next week.

  20. Sabrine says:

    Kim fits in well with the dumbing down of America. The trick is keep it simple and sexy, promote and market your brand and it’s a recipe for success. She’s not stupid you know. She is a very clever business woman who has made millions aside from the t.v. show in just the last few years.

    • word says:

      No her mother is the cleaver one. Kim, on her own, would not have had the success she did. Her mother is the brains behind it all.

  21. epiphany says:

    I despair that most of the preceding comments indicate that people actually believe this nonsense. She does not have 55 million followers – I doubt she has even a fraction of that. It’s ridiculously easy to sign up for atwitter account; a couple of assistants can acquire. thousands in one day. Her Twitter followers are her own invention. This number is manufactured, pure and simple. This fact has already been revealed for a number of Twitter accounts for other celebrities. The only way to make these parasites go away is to ignore them.

  22. Kym says:

    Well, thank you to the 55 million fans who continue to encourage this souless creature.

  23. ldub says:

    i weep for the future of humanity too but, com’on, the “crying kim” emoji is GOLD.

  24. Doc says:

    WHAT is Hiroshige’s ‘Wave’ doing on there???

  25. word says:

    Does anyone really believe she gained 15 million followers in 6 months? No. She went into panic mode when she saw her sisters were gaining more popularity and probably went on a “fake follower” buying spree. I put nothing past this woman. Those “kimoji’s” will be used exclusively to make fun of her…but she has no shame or dignity so…

  26. me says:

    If you have 55 million followers but only get 8000 likes on a photo, what does that mean?

    Also, I can guarantee you Kim doesn’t come up with any of these “business ideas”. She is approached with ideas (or should I say her mom is approached) and Kim simply signs on the dotted line and cashes her checks. That’s the scope of her as a “business woman”. I give this robot zero credit. I do give all the credit to her pimp mama though.

    • Dawn says:

      Exactly my thoughts. I too think she truly looks happy only when she is on stage alone and naked. Otherwise her eyes just remain dead. I doubt that she has anywhere near 55 million followers when no one is watching the show or buying their stuff. The Jenner girls have taken over.

      • word says:

        Yup, just a few more months and we’ll be gifted with another “naked photo shoot” to show off her “amazing post baby bod”. That’s all she knows how to do. Her mom handles all her actual “business”.

    • Mgsota says:

      I’m ashamed to know this but Kylie may have less followers but she gets WAY more likes than Kim. It makes me happy because her little sisters, especially Kylie, are going to dethrone her and I CANT WAIT. She must be panicking.

    • ekaterina says:

      Me said it all. I cringe when her followers say what a brilliant business woman she is. She does nothing but self promote, people bring forth ideas, it is easy to sit and pick what u like n what not. Easiest job in the world tweeting,posting pics, talking about her clothes,her hair,her make up, pathetic. All the sisters, post n tweet,all friggin day long. Some of the followers comments worry me n make me laugh.
      -love how u r with North shows what a good mom u r.
      -look forward to seeing u every Sunday,be my mom too
      -i look up to u n have learned so much
      Lol, I’m scared for them if their young kids. If u write something against her, omg, they swear,threaten n spew hate. Kim retweets their comments all the time. She has someone doing it, impossible she spends all day reading comments,or maybe she does,lol

  27. Jwoolman says:

    This is too weird. Who exactly are her fans that they would even want these things? Who even advised her to offer such a set?

    Kim just needs to accept her inner porn star and do real porn. That might actually make her happy. She seems genuinely joyful only when posing naked. But her sell-by date is approaching for that kind of work.

    • L says:

      I don’t watch the show. May have seen. A handful of episodes at most and I don’t follow her on Instagram. That being said I am not hater of the K’s either. They do their thing whatever. I did buy this Kimoji though!! Cause it is F*^%ing hilarious

  28. Paris says:

    Kim is soooooooooooo klassy!

  29. Alana says:

    Where is the syringe emoji it could indicate when she is out for plastic surgeries oh wait that would be the “going gym” emoji

    • me says:

      What’s her red cup emoji about? Sizzurp?

      Yup, she needs a botox emoji, also, wish you could put her crying face emoji on top of her pregnant body emoji…that would be hilarious and very true to life.

      There are more “Kimoji’s”…one with her panties down to her ankles (nod to Ray J and her humble beginnings?)…and there is one with Kim wearing a graduation cap ha ha.

  30. Renae says: says:

    This woman is in her 30’s right? Her tweets sound like they come from a teenager. Pretty soon even with plastic surgery she is going to age out of the group that find her “interesting”. Gag me. I’m sure she has bought many of those followers. Its all such hyped up bs!

  31. Hadleyb says:

    If this selfie is in her car where are the pics from her that day? Thats all I want to see.

  32. Nouveau says:

    She’s just a Klassy, Klassy woman who’s made significant and lasting intellectual contributions to the world – such as the Kimojis.

    And the 55 million are all genuine followers. Of course.
