Kim Kardashian posted a response to her fans who wrote the word “wig” on a post of her new pink hairdo. She assumed they were calling her out for wearing a wig, so she got a little bit huffy and recorded a short video to explain it was her real hair. The Kim Kardashian Wig video was shared later on Instagram.
“You guys, if I see one more person say I’m wearing a wig and think I’m lying… I don’t get it,” Kardashian said. “Like, why would I lie about wearing a wig? This is my hair. There is no wig. I dyed my hair guys. It’s like…how is it such a crazy thought. Get the fuck out of here with that wig shit.”
What she doesn’t understand is that “wig” is actually a compliment, and her fans were commenting the word because they actually love her new hairdo. We know this now partially because of the word’s appearance on Sunday’s episode of American Idol, where Katy Perry bonded with a singer over their use of the word.
According to Urban Dictionary, “Wig is a term used to describe when someone does something (In their opinion) that is so good that they go bald.” And “When something happens so unexpectedly, that your wig flies off your head.”
So, it’s a good thing, Kim!
People on social media have since loved Kardashian’s gaffe.
One wrote, “The funniest thing ever is Kim Kardashian getting mad and making a video to prove her hair is real because people keep commenting ‘wig’ under her posts and she doesn’t understand what it means???”
Another added, “Bitches calling Kim dumb for not understanding what ‘wig’ means — uuuhh, you spend all your days on the internet being lazy and tweeting shit nobody cares about. Kim Kardashian spends her days getting richier and traveling the world.”
Richier is not a word.
