"Just a reminder. It was actually these two Black women that helped free all those folks, not y’all prison reform princess Kim K."

As expected social media users shared mixed reactions to the post. Some bashed Kim for always using every opportunity to seek relevance while others said she deserves the credit because she footed the bill.

@BigGameJimmy said:

"Without Kim’s help it wouldn’t have been possible, both things can be true stop trying to take away something from someone for whatever personal beef."

"Why not just appreciate them all? why you gotta put someone down to make someone else shine? celebrate them all because they all put effort on something that’s really important."

"Kim K really joined them after all the hardworking was done and took full credit and never once corrected them. I can't stand that our society loved the KarTrashians. I'm embarrassed she was at the White House Correspondence dinner while the real people putting in the work didn't."
