Kim Kardashian's Custom Birkin: The Best Twitter Reactions

Kim Kardashian probably has a closet dedicated to her Hermès Birkins. But the newest member of her collection is definitely the most over-the-top. (Yes, more over-the-top than her Birkin diaper bag.)

What we know about the custom creation: It’s a Christmas gift from Kanye West, hand-painted by contemporary visual artist George Condo and retails for about $40,000 (according to The Cut). But that 40k price tag just covers the gigantic bag (seriously, North could fit comfortably inside there). It does not include whatever amount West dished out for the nude bodies painted on the purse.

What we also know: PEOPLE readers are not loving Kardashian’s new accessory. And on Twitter, people are not holding back their emotions.

So as we sit here and make a list of all the things we would want other than the bizarre Birkin (a new car, 40 pairs of Christian Louboutins … you get where this is going), read a roundup of the best reactions below. Plus, don’t forget to share your thoughts!

Kim’s Birkin looks like it was done with Sharpies.

I thought Kim was Kanye’s BAG!!!!!

It’s Christmas and he gives her a bag that looks like the underworld? HO HO NO

Erin on

Can the woman ever stick to a style that’s her own instead of making herself conform to whoever she’s with. She’s like the female Brad Pitt.

Linh on

That purse was cute until the painting got on. I love art and I love purses, but I do not think they collide together in this case.

Tiffany on

I don’t even know where to begin with this mess.

At least she only has to wear it out in public once before it goes to the back of the closet … can’t wait to see what else he in her life he defaces.

I wonder what kind of good could have been done with $40,000. Seriously? A BAG? This says a lot about both of their characters.
