Kim And Kanye Are Getting Major Heat For Trying To "Look Poor" On Instagram

Some are not happy at all with Kim's latest photo set.

Kim Kardashian may have just made her return to social media, but she's already found herself in hot water with the general public yet again.

Kim returned to Instagram last week with a slew of family photos that look very unlike anything she's posted before. The pics take place in modest surroundings — think stains on the wall, and the kind of regular couch you'd find in your aunt's house, not at a multi-millionaire's home — and the grainy, 80s-esque filter give the photos an overall appearance of polaroids found in an old box of family photos.

It's definitely a different aesthetic than we're used to from the Kardashian-West family, and fans didn't hesitate to sound off on Twitter, some theorizing that Kim is trying to rebrand herself as being more humble after being blamed for the Paris robbery, while others went as far as accusing her and Kanye of trying to look poor for aesthetic purposes.

Neither Kim nor Kanye have commented on the backlash, and knowing them, they probably never will. But do you think the criticism is fair? Is everything fair when it comes to art (and Instagram filters), or are Kim and Kanye in the wrong for trying to recreate a specific image that they have no real connection to?
