THE ODD MARILYN MONROE GIFT KIM KARDASHIAN RECEIVED IS CAUSING A STIR
By DM
Kim Kardashian stunned fans when she arrived at the 2022 Met Gala in a dress worn by Marilyn Monroe, back when the iconic beauty famously sang "Happy Birthday" to JFK. When Kim went to Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum to retrieve the gown, she received something else of Monroe's, and it's causing a stir online.
In an Instagram video, Kardashian gasps as she opened a silver locket containing a lock of Monroe's signature platinum blonde hair. She hugs Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum staffers and says, "This is so special to me," also joking that "This is sleeping with me every night" — but netizens are not as happy as Kim is.
"I think it's very strange and disrespectful how kim was 'gifted' a piece of marilyn monroe's hair," one person tweeted. "Let that legend Rest In Peace I'm begging," another fan, while another tweeted, "Ripley's giving kim kardashian a lock of marilyn monroe's hair is disgusting. i genuinely cannot comprehend how f***ing weird that is."
