Brace yourselves: Kimoji merch is coming. As in, clothing emblazoned with Kim Kardashian-themed emoji will soon exist in the world. As in, right now, someone is probably designing a sweatshirt with the cartoon likeness of Kim Kardashian sliding down a stripper pole, to be produced en masse.
Racked's sister site Recode recently spoke with Kardashian herself, and today revealed that her popular app is getting an e-commerce component soon, where shoppers can buy merchandise "based on the app's iconic and often risqué emojis."
How soon? According to one watchdog Twitter account, Kimoji merch could be available as soon as two weeks from now. Two weeks. Two weeks until we'll get T-shirt versions of disembodied eyebrows and Kim Kardashian whacking Khloé over the head with a purse and shouting, "Don't be fucking rude." You've been warned.
