Kim Kardashian Is Displeased Over This Blow Up Doll

I have no idea why.  The doll, Kinky Kim, is advertised as a “busty bubble-butt bimbo who’s had more dark meat inside her than a bucket of fried chicken.”  And I will be damned if that’s not the most charming, appealing thing I’ve ever heard.  What woman wouldn’t want to have a blow up doll modeled after her?  What’s that?  A good deal of woman wouldn’t want this?  Whatever, prudes.

As it turns out, Kim falls into the category of women who would not appreciate this treatment, and she’s threatening to take the matter to court. Here’s the story from TMZ:

For some reason — Kardashian believes the doll is modeled after her — thus violating her right of publicity — and now her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, is on the attack.

Holley fired off a strongly worded letter to Pipedream Products, Inc. — the company behind the sex doll — demanding they stop production ASAP before she opens up a big, fat can of lawsuit.

But Pipedream, unlike their products, doesn’t plan on just taking this lying down — telling us, “The similarity between the Kinky Kim doll and Ms. Kardashian is purely coincidental.”

Ok, all jokes aside, I totally understand why Kim Kardashian would be creeped out.  The doll is obviously intended to represent her, its tagline is disgusting, and take a look at the packaging again – it’s not even a tiny bit classy, even for a blow up doll.  But this brings up a whole mess of questions:  would you be offended or kind of flattered if someone made a sex toy inspired by you?  Does Kim have the right to deny Pipedream their sexy creative freedom?  Does anyone actually use blow up dolls?
