Fans aren’t exactly sold on Kim Kardashian’s tribute to Steve Harwell.
On Wednesday, the mom of four took to Instagram to drop a bikini-clad set of pics in which she commemorated the late Smash Mouth singer — with a “thirst trap”?? If you didn’t catch it, Kim uploaded two mirror selfies in a gold, metallic two piece, using lyrics from the band’s hit song All Star to caption the post:
“All that glitters is gold”
Steve passed away on Monday at just 56 years old after suffering liver failure. A bikini series is certainly one way of paying tribute… But it didn’t take long for social media users to call out the “tone deaf” way of doing it:
“Low key tone deaf but go off”
“Someone dies and you use their lyrics to post a thirst trap.”
“Some people sure love themselves”
“kim there’s people that are dying — literally”
Others questioned if the reality star even knew the musician had passed away:
“Is this her tribute post to Steve Harwell?”
“Kim the smash mouth guy just died. Take this down.”
However, others didn’t seem to take issue with it — including the official Smash Mouth X (Twitter) account, which reposted the photo and added more lyrics:
“only shooting stars”
