Kim Kardashian Caught Heat After Posting A TikTok That Appeared To Show The Family’s Dogs Living In Her Garage
Kim Kardashian is so committed to her “zen” aesthetic that even her two Pomeranians are beige. However, some are upset that her dogs’ existence might not be so peaceful after she posted a TikTok that seemingly showed them relegated to her garage. After Kim started catching hell, she deleted the TikTok from the account she shares with her daughter, North West; which only pissed people off more.
Page Six says Kim posted a TikTok called “Christmas time for the dogs” to show off her dogs’ festive digs. The two dogs, Sushi and Sake (obviously acquired and named during her “Kimono” cultural appropriation era), frolicked around the garage as she showed off their Christmas decor, but people picked up on some clues that insinuated they don’t get out of the garage very often.
In an attempt to show off the pups’ Christmasy setup, which included stockings, mini Christmas trees and more, the Skims founder accidentally showed the pooches prancing around the garage in tiny coats next to their large pen and pee pads.
The TikTok caught some angry comments, which is most likely why Kim deleted it. Here’s a re-post of the original:
I wonder why they deleted it… #northwest #kimkardashian #kim #lol #thekardashians #kanyewest #fyp #fypシ #fypage #foryou #foryoupage #foryourpage #trending #viral #tiktok_india #tiktokindia
Kim should be well-versed enough in attention-whoring by now to know that the internet is forever and deleting is like throwing fuel on a fire. Predictably, chaos ensued.
The video prompted criticism, which only worsened once Kim, 42, deleted the video from her and daughter North West’s shared account.
“This video was deleted from North’s account. Is it because Kim Kardashian doesn’t want people to think they keep their dogs in the garage? I wonder why they deleted it…,” asked a TikTok user who reposted the video.
Someone who claims to run a dog business stitched Kim’s video and explained why the dogs living in the garage (even if it’s a billionaire’s garage) isn’t a great environment for them to be kept in:

The Twitter pile-on was swift and bountiful:
Kim Kardashian keeps her dogs in the garage?!
You can tell a lot about a person by how they treat animals.
All that money and she couldn’t just 1) hire someone to care for them in the house OR 2) build them a dog house on the property?

people are surprised @KimKardashian keeps her dogs in the garage… she literally didn’t even know dogs had to go to the vet. as i said before, she was much better as Paris’ closet keeper. her and her family have more influence than they ever should have. pic.twitter.com/5U40uUArCA

But Kim did have a few defenders:
People are really upset that @KimKardashian may keep her dogs in her garage?
The garage looked clean af. It’s huge. Due to location, probably not too hot or cold.
Not a bad space for pups.
Folks worrying more about that than homeless folks freezing is wild

You know what? It’s not so bad. A bowl of kibble, some water, a place to dump, and a bed. What else do people want? Oh hold on, I was just referring to Rob Kardashian being stowed away in Kris Jenner’s garage for the last few years; I’m fine with those conditions for him. Someone should definitely rescue the confused Pomeranians from Kim’s clutches, though. There’s no way they get out of that enclosure unless she’s low on content ideas. Before this TikTok, the last time they both appeared on her Instagram was like two hair colors, three faces, and 16 more pounds of Fix-a-Flat ass ago, so their fresh air opportunities might be slim.
