"The Met Gala happens every year. People dress like hamburgers there. You could have worn anything else."
The publication adds that in an interview, Kanye West's ex-wife defended her action, saying she only wore the dress for a few minutes. Peeps took to the comment section of The Daily Show on YouTube and shared their thoughts on Kim's saga.
Abigail G commented:
"I didn’t understand the anger at first but then I listened to experts and it really made me understand why it was so bad that she wore it and why it being at Ripleys was horrible and yet unavoidable since museums that archive clothing aren’t given any funding. It’s a really frustrating and unfortunate circumstance."
Amy Anderson said:
"I've been obsessed with this dress since 1989. This was an actual fashion crime."
Liz M. wrote:
"It's about the ridiculous entitlement (KK) and carelessness (Ripley's). I'm not a fashion historian, but even I can see the irreparable damage to that dress. Even after she lost 16lbs."
"I'm a folk costume tailor and theatre costume maker myself, but you really don't need to be even close to an expert to know that wearing that specific dress was a bad idea from the start. It's a 60 year old fragile silk dress covered in heavy crystals. It's not exactly rocket science to understand that wearing it was (and is) a bad idea."
