The Kardashian clan is known to do everything when it comes to Halloween and have served some of the best celebrity Halloween costumes of all time.
This year, Kim perfectly channeled Madonna, Kendall went all the Powerpuff Girls with buddy Hailey Baldwin, and we will never forget this time Kylie killed in Christina Aguilera's Dirty getup movie. Sure to say that they are the Kweens of Halloween, amiright?
However, one of Kim's costumes this year's celebrations has sparked strong criticism from fans and non-fans alike.
The future mom of three chose to dress as a late R & B legend, Aaliyah – which happened like a lead balloon on the internet. The outfit was considered to be in bad taste, while others accused the star of cultural appropriation.
Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you are not there. It's offensive and you should not push that limit, but ok … 🙄

Of course, Kim K is never one to shut up as a result of a criticism, so she naturally took the app to make a statement.
"When I decided what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I was limiting myself to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah," she says.
"The look was inspired by what she wore in her video" Try Again. "I wore a custom bra top and J Brand leather pants.Ariel Tejada did my makeup and Chris Appleton made my hair. "
Aaliyah was an incredible singer and she will forever be a legend of music. I've seen online that some people thought my suit was in bad taste and I'm really sorry if it offended anyone.
"When I created the costume, I was not dressed as a race or culture but rather as a woman that I will always admire. I play all kinds of music in my home and I like my children to be exposed to many different artists. "
KKW added that his sister, Kourtney, chose to pass on Michael Jackson in the same way, and that his family "does not see the color".
"For me, it is always about love and respect. I liked that Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of his costumes, and that my son was Axl Rose, she said.
"We do not see color at home, we pay tribute to the people and artists we love and respect – it's as simple as that!"
