.@kimkardashian's new #Kimojis include her topless, North West's cry face and @kanyewest. http://et.tv/1VwgVrY pic.twitter.com/n1kxJ4kLDD
8:55 AM - 1 Jun 2016


Here's et twitter's feed, there asking people to get interested in KK being topless, then mentioning her daughter crying in a symbol along with mentioning kanye, but at what point do people with financial resource stop paying to be in the limelight and at what point do people stop and take a moment to realize this symbolism for youth isnt cool and that it's plain wrong, again I'd never let any children be exposed to this app, why do we have to expose the kids to nudity, why do we have to expose them to illegal substance and more importantly who led these people to believe they could be so careless.

Just naming them Kimojis & Kimogifs is so self centered. I wouldn't participate if you paid me as both (and all of the Kardashians for that matter) are a waste of space.

While it's a good thing that IMVU is making celebrity connections, as they also did with Katy Perry a few years ago, partnering with Kim & Kanye sends the wrong message to some users like me who dislike what they stand for. They are polarizing but IMO it's for the wrong reasons.

From a marketing standpoint, with so many new and fresh ideas to expose it's just sad to see a whole bunch of people continue to try to keep this campfire lit so to speak , we perceive this brand as a dying brand a fire that's simply going out, yet people still come around and use this until the campfire is just completely depleted people will continue to capitalize on this brand and advertise with it, but at what expense? Do they spend time with the young ladies they mold with this symbolism of sorts, do they see the negative reaction their tv show or app's have on society? do they care? Many people don't buy this and those that do are mostly imo young people , my guess and from what I've studied is, this following consists of fragile minded teenage girls, and we believe they are effected negatively by this symbolism, we stand by this belief and think it's sad to see young ladies aspire to follow or think highly of any of these peoples lifestyles or belief systems when you speak about these things the first thing people say is; " your simply hating on this person" well no, not at all what I'm upset about is the fact that this brand has done nothing positive and essentially created a less than demographic of people who have been fed ideas within symbols which create a wrong idea and weaken those that buy into this brand.

I brought up the babysitting analogy to broaden your perspective on these symbols, just a few to speak of the cannabis leaf, illegal prescription drink "DOUBLE CUP", nudity, vulgarity.

We believe those downloading this KK app are minors and mostly kids, and also believe this is a concerted effort to target this demographic to make money, all without the care of cause and effect.

I don't know about the stats or anything like that, I post about what I feel is important to talk about or expose thats all, we feel cannabis leaf and illegal double cup drinks will influence teens in the USA and in looking at the bigger picture which affects society as a whole is better than not looking at it at all, we have cause and effect and we feel the symbols this host has decided to put on their app is going to make society less than.

if that influences you then something is wrong with your standarts and choice of free will and decision making .... youc an show me pot all day long i wont smoke it ... so if some one is inclined to do that sticker or not they gonan do it . what u fuming about with other users here is pointless... you should write your complains to imvu office if u feel so strong about that .

Were speaking of KK'S app and the symbols used and the correlation between this hosts brand and ideas of users here, we feel this reality show hosts ideals are a negative all the way around and I'm speaking about it because people will correlate this , they see the symbols used in the app brand and what they mean, you may not be affected like some but these symbols may not be in an app you've purchased, those that have bought into this and do look up to these ideals within this symbolism we feel can be at danger and risk.

You never stated where these so called symbols are being used. Two of the most popular ways for "kids" to communicate is the use of Facebook and Snapchat. For a short while WhatsApp was popular, but that died off quickly.

If you look at the emoji's on Facebook and Snapchat, neither of them use the cannabis leaf, the double cup, nudity or anything vulgar.

FB
http://fsymbols.com/facebook/smileys/

SC
http://snapchatemojis.com/

They all look pretty tame and a little lame to me.

If you know of a popular messaging site that "kids", teens, minors or whoever are using, please post it here. I have never seen any of the symbols you mentioned on any popular site that I know of.

You also said, "We believe those downloading this KK app are minors and mostly kids" Saying what you believe and stating the facts are two different things. You really need to back up your claim with statistics from KK's website/company. You need to find out what percentage of her total app sales are to minors? I would be interested to know.

This is our belief and you can find the noted icons everywhere online under KKs brand.

OK, I gave you the benefit of the doubt. I went to Kim's website and there was no cannabis, no double cup, no nudity and no vulgarity.

I still maintain that there are no sites that you can point to that shows minors are abusing these apps. If you are going to make an accusation like you have, you should be prepared to back it up with proof. Again, you may have beliefs, but without proof or facts, what you are stating doesn't exist.

Please don't say that I can go online and look myself. If I am looking in the wrong place, support you accusations and correct me. Show us sites where these apps are being used by minors.

In my first week of college, my English professor spent a lot of time teaching us the importance of writing a paper or thesis. She pointed out that if you make a statement or claim a theory, it's imperative to back it up with facts. We need to support our arguments with reliable sources, otherwise that brilliant paper can easily go from an A+ to a big red F!

So facts are important to me and they should be important to you too. Otherwise we can all run around making false accusations. Everyone needs to be held accountable for what they say. That's why we have anti-defamation laws against libel and slander.

I'm sorry. I gave you ample time and room to prove to us that this is an issue. I went out of my way to prove you are right, but I came up short. If you refuse to support your own claims, then you have failed to show that the problem exists. Again, I'm sorry, but there is no proof here.
