Oh, God! Fans are fuming after Kourtney Kardashian took to Instagram on Tuesday, May 14, to share a photo captioned, “Church merch.” The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 40, struck a pose alongside sisters Kim and Khloé as well as brother-in-law Kanye West and son Mason.
“Profiting off religion, nice!” one person wrote, while another added, “I’m sorry, it’s disgraceful that someone would even think it’s OK to wear jogging clothes to church. And the fact that you guys think it’s OK to profit off of God … unless the money is going to help the poor or missionary work. You should be ashamed.” A third and fourth chimed in, “Pretty sure the point of church isn’t to sell merchandise?” and “Seriously? Church merch? The disrespect.”
Since January 2019, Kanye has been hosting “Sunday service,” a private gospel concert for family and friends. Last month, a source exclusively revealed to In Touch that the Chicago native is now ready to take them to the next level.
“Get ready for Kanye TV! Kanye has big plans for his popular Sunday services events,” they dished. “He wants to telecast it so the whole world can watch, and he wants Kim by his side. Kanye want to spread the word. He says there’s a huge demand for the services, the musicians he assembles and his message of peace and family, which he says is healing and uplifting.”
But TBH, the real host of the event is North West. The adorable 5-year-old is always spotted front and center in the spiritual gathering rocking out to her daddy’s rap songs. On Sunday, April 14, a video surfaced of the tot rapping the words, “Poopy-di scoop,” the lyrics from the chorus of Kanye’s song “Lift Yourself.” Clearly, she’s following her father’s footsteps.
As for Kim? She’s all for the idea. “Kim wants a forum for her good deeds and her prison reform advocacy,” the insider added. “She even sees the show as an outlet for her children and her nieces and nephews, where they would perform. Kim and Kanye want to change, some say rule the world, and Kanye TV is just another step in that direction.”
