On Jan. 1, 2014, over on the Huffington Post's Twitter page, folks are getting ugly over a photo of Kim Kardashian's new custom design diamond engagement ring. The humongous chunk of ice is featured clutched in the Kardashian baby daughter's fist and prompted Huffington to tweet, "Kim Kardashian shares adorable New Year's photo of North West http://huff.to/1gnaqRP."
Maybe it was the description of "adorable," or possibly all it took was the infamous name of "Kardashian" to set off the hostile tweet from Marina Carreira. "Right," wrote Carreira, "A big fat diamond in the baby's hand is adorable. Meanwhile millions of babies go empty handed and starved everyday."
Huffington Post is a frequent tweeter and has since buried their Kardashian comment under new tweets. One of those later tweets may be a clue for better responses for Kim Kardashian. The HuffPo link, "Taylor Swift's cat pulls off epic photobomb http://huff.to/1dpqOkh," was a resounding success.
Perhaps Kim should show off her diamonds in a cat's paw next time. Of course there is always the possibility if Huffington Post called it "adorable," it would prompt reminders about how many starving cats Kim Kardashian's diamond could feed. Meow, anyone?
