【看英文中國郵報學英文】美國名媛金卡戴珊 (Kim Kardashian) 六月初推出塑身內衣品牌「Kimono」,然而,品牌命名「Kimono」是日本和服(きもの)的拉丁文,引起廣大日本網民批評。對此文化不尊重風波,內衣品牌正式更名為「SKIMS Solutionwear」。

Kim Kardashian West’s shapewear line Kimono is no more. The new name, changed amid an outcry over cultural appropriation, is now SKIMS Solutionwear. She had received backlash on social media from people who object to what they say is an appropriation of the traditional Japanese kimono in the name of her upcoming shapewear line.

輿論風波瞬間延燒,Vogue雜誌甚至將8月份卡戴珊拍攝的封面照臨時撤下。

Due to widespread outrage, Vogue even canceled the cover photo of Kardashian on their August issue.
