After facing criticism and mockery over a post on how she celebrated her 40th birthday, reality television star Kim Kardashian said Thursday that husband and rapper Kanye West gifted her a hologram projection of her deceased father Robert Kardashian as a gift.
Sharing the clip of the hologram on Twitter, Kim described it as “the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime”. Her father Robert Kardashian passed away from oesophageal cancer in July of 2003 at the age of 59.
In the hologram, Robert is heard talking about being a “proud Armenian father” but then goes on to talk about incidents that took place well after he he had died. The holographic projection talks about being proud that Kim had decided to study law and have a family.
The video projection also described husband West as the “most, most, most, most, most genius man in the whole world”.

Kim Kardashian getting a hologram of her dead dad while millions of Americans didn’t even get to tell their parents goodbye or go to their funerals thanks to COVID is too on the nose.
