Kim Kardashian West is under fire once again for a post on social media. The media mogul posted a video to her Instagram story talking about coming home to find boxes from Dolce & Gabbana waiting for her. She showed off the boxes and what looks to be three sequined suit jackets. When fans saw the video they weren't too pleased since the namesakes of the D&G brand said some controversial things last year. 

Kim Kardashian West is facing backlash for a post on social media once again. 

She posted a video to her Instagram Story praising Dolce & Gabbana. In the video, Kim (and North!) talks about how she came home to D&G boxes waiting for her. Next to those boxes, West has three sequined suit jackets laid out. 

The post itself isn't the problem.

The problem is that Stefano Gabbana, half of the iconic brand Dolce & Gabbana, has said some controversial things in the past about celebrities. This includes the Kardashian-Jenner family. Under a picture of the family posted on Instagram, Gabbana commented that they are "the most cheap people in the world."

This is not the first time he's had something to say about someone's appearance. 

He seems to love Instagram comments. He commented under this post of singer and actress Selena Gomez saying she's ugly. The comment "È proprio brutta!” is in Italian and roughly translates to "she's really ugly!" 

But it doesn't stop there.

Of course, others are going to agree with him. So when someone else commented that Gomez looks like a Pomeranian dog, Gabbana agrees with them.  

OK, back to how this relates to Kim.

In 2015, the Dolce half of D&G, Domenico Dolce, faced backlash when he said he's against gay adoptions and IVF. "The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.... You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that's how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalog." 

But that's exactly what the Kardashian West family has done.

The family brought their third child, Chicago, into this world via surrogate. In fact, the family is expanding again and has planned to do so via surrogate.

Dolce's comments may not have to do with the Kardashian West family, however.

While the comments are offensive regardless, Dolce may not have even meant any harm to the Kardashian West clan. Dolce was talking about gay couples. He specifically said that he believes in a "traditional family," and "you are born to a mother and a father." This family is made up of a mother and father regardless of how the child is coming into the world. Not to say that makes it OK, but that could be why the family still chooses to support the brand — maybe they're cool with homophobia. 

Either way, fans weren't happy.

This fan talks about how the comments Dolce & Gabbana have made are unacceptable. They refuse to support the brand and wants Kim to do the same. 

This fan acknowledges the huge platform Kim has and wants her to use it in order to send a positive message. A huge platform comes with a huge impact on others.

Doesn't seem hard to believe that Kim would want anything from D&G. It looks as though she certainly was happy to take what the brand sent her. That is, of course, until the backlash. 

Some people are tired of the ads.

For some, it's hard to believe that Kim even uses the products she endorses. Especially since she has money and access to things many of us don't. 

Others don't like the message the brand sells.

Flat Tummy Co. products are meant to suppress your appetite so you don't feel as hungry, and therefore you don't eat as much as you used to. Then, because you aren't eating as much, the idea is you'll lose weight. But some have an issue with that and what it could mean for young girls.

For Kim, starting controversy is pretty much par for the course.

Let's be honest here. If there's anything Kim and the rest of her family is known for, it's all the controversy and backlash they get for the things they do. Another drama, another day.
