Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has received backlash online after transforming into Virgin Mary for the newest Kimoji.

For the Kimoji, Kim has transformed into The Virgin Mary and each of the animated image becomes blurred when it's played, indicating that this Kimoji was made to "celebrate" 420 a.k.a. Weed Day.

The caption of one of the images read, "420 DROP NOW AVAILABLE." Another image was captioned with "WHEN KIM BLESSES YOU WITH THAT 420 DROP."

Fans immediately left harsh comments on Kimoji's Instagram, saying that this act is beyond disrespectful and offensive, reported Ace Showbiz.

One commenter said, "This is beyond disrespectful!! What does this even have to do with 4/20 ? Just some pathetic idea but mostly... Disrespectful to God."

Another pointed out that Virgin Mary is a sacred figure.

"This is shameful. Remove this image our blessed Mother Mary is irreplaceabley sacred. We will not stand for this mockery," the commenter said.

Many people have demanded Kim to take down the images.

Not only used as emojis, but the Virgin Mary Kimoji is sold as a candle.

This candle is sold for USD 18 on Kimoji's official website, causing people to label Kim "disgusting."

One comment read, "You are disgusting! You should be ashamed of yourself!" while the others told her to "have some respect.
