Kanye West Gets Kim Kardashian a Hologram of Her Father for Her Birthday: Watch
On Thursday night (Oct. 29), Kim K., who turned 40 on Oct. 21, used a tweet to announce that Yeezy had gotten her a special hologram of Robert Kardashian, her late father who died of esophageal cancer in 2003.
In a video of the hologram, a virtual re-creation of the late attorney who once acted as part of O.J. Simpson's defense team during the former NFL player's 1995 murder trial, gives Kim loving words of positivity.
"Happy Birthday, Kimberly," the virtual Robert Kardashian says. "Look at you. You're 40 and all grown up. You look beautiful just like when you were a little girl. I watch over you and your sisters and brothers and the kids every day."
The hologram of Robert Kardashian also praises Kanye. "You married the most, most, most, most, most genius man in the whole world, Kanye West" he said of the rapper.
While Kim herself, and many fans, believed that the hologram was a touching gesture, some people online thought it was odd. Many critics on social media compared the hologram to actor David Schwimmer, who played the role of Robert Kardashian in Fx's 2016 TV series, People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
"[W]hy did kanye west give his wife a hologram of david schwimmer," wrote one Twitter user. "Why get a hologram when you could just hire David Schwimmer?," wrote another.
While some fans think it's weird, Kim K. likes the hologram, so that's probably all that matters. See the reactions to the hologram for yourself below.
