The Web’s 5 Best KimYe Jr. Reactions
The news of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s pregnancy has reached the masses. Those who love them, hate them and simply don’t care all know about the high-status couple’s bundle of joy, and EVERYONE has something to say. From the crude jokes about who the baby’s “real” father is to what their child will look like, it seems everyone with an IP address has shared their prediction about baby KimYe West. Here are some of the good, bad and the ugly.
It seems as though Kardashian fans (we’re using the term loosely) got hold of one of Kimmy’s throwback pictures and photoshopped Yeezy’s signature smile on it to create the KimYe Frankenbaby meme. The image has made the rounds through Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Reddit and Tumblr, resulting in side-splitting laughs and prayers that their child doesn’t actually end up looking like this.
“Eighteen years, 18 years / Se got one of your kids, got you for 18 years…and on the 18th birthday, he found out it wasn’t his.” The only upside to this scenario actually happening would be an album to upstage the emotion in 808s & Heartbreak.
What makes this representation of the future G.O.O.D. Music heir hilarious? Aside from the baby holding a microphone taking a selfie with shutter shades on, it was an image pulled from New Media Animation, the Taiwanese re-enacting company responsible for the infamous Tiger Woods car crash depiction and various other odd reenactments of worldwide headlines. Its nice to see they’re not stereotypical of Americans.
Whoever runs the Facebook page for the Rap Genius lyric site had a little too much to sip on last weekend. And while the Taylor Swift scenario is far in the past, this is a much better spin on the joke than this.
