Many social media users have been left outraged after a clip surfaced online of reality TV star Kim Kardashian struggling to fit her ample booty into Marilyn Monroe’s delicate dress. Fans were already dismayed after the eldest Kardashian sister stepped onto the red carpet at the Met Gala wearing the iconic dress.

A lot of people have now said that the dress has been “defiled” by the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.

Kim Kardashian forces big booty into Marilyn Monroe’s gown

Kim Kardashian’s decision to wear the exact same dress that Marilyn Monroe wore when she sang Happy Birthday to former US president JF Kennedy in 1962, infuriated the icon’s fans, museum creators and fashion experts alike.

Mostly because the 60-year-old dress has become an important part of fashion history and up until now was expertly preserved and put on display at the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! museum who bought it for a whopping $4.8 million at auction.

Fans are even more upset after new footage revealed that despite reportedly losing just over 7kgs to fit into the dress, the 41-year-old struggled to get it over her ample derrière.

Video footage obtained by TMZ show Kardashian and her team of stylists struggling to get the dress up and then resorting to leaving it partly unzipped which was then covered up by a thick white fur coat which she was seen wearing in the red carpet.

What the fans think:

Jacqueline said:

“Ok cool, it’s not just me who was shocked at this unnecessary stunt. I felt it disrespected marilyn’s memory. Kim has so many resources and creatives in her life, why not make something for her own? So confused.

Even if it was just inspired by the dress with her own flare?? I would have liked her to even challenge some of her fans to design her dress, so she could have it made, wouldn’t that have been more interesting!?  But ok.”

While Rhonda Kay said:

Not only this dress could of had material damage BUT i feel its now depleted in historical value, the worth was based upon the fact ONLY and LASTLY worn by the legendary icon herself.
