“I’m the first person to say, ‘Okay, of course, I can’t believe we didn’t think of this.’ I had innocent intentions. But let’s listen. And I want to listen. And I want to take it all in.” said Kim Kardashian West in an interview.
Kim Kardashian West was all set to launch her new shapewear brand; the TV personality named it Kimono.
However, Kim announced last week she plans to rename the brand after facing massive backlash over calling it Kimono.
In a recent interview, the TV personality said that her intentions were innocent for naming the brand.
“You would think we would have thought it through a little bit deeper,” Kardashian West said.
Kim, 38, had to face the accusations of cultural appropriation for naming the upcoming brand a traditional Japanese clothing item. Last week, the star announced plans to change the name.
Kim further added, “I’m the first person to say, ‘Okay, of course, I can’t believe we didn’t think of this.’ I had innocent intentions. But let’s listen. And I want to listen. And I want to take it all in.”
The star explained that Kanye West was in Japan when all of this happened and it's a place the couple love and go and have tremendous respect.
Kim also went on to explain the reason behind the name for her shapewear.
The actress did with her best intentions in mind. Kim, 38, further said that her brands and products are built with inclusivity and diversity at their core and after careful thought and consideration.
