"Why dont you have the expert on that actually knows the dress and how it was damaged? its the trumpism lie….she said she didn’t damage it so she must be telling the truth.
"Congrats on being the PR mouthpiece she needed and to sell her product… #disappointed," one ranted.
"The level of stupidity she possesses is unending. You ruined the dress for just 3 minutes of clout. Marilyn Monroe is popular without your help. She has countless of documentaries, biopics, novels, endorsements like Chanel, the highest-earning dead celebrity. WTF," a second remarked.
A third noted: "#MarilynMonroe is an American pop culture. She embodies Golden Age of Hollywood, tributes are continuously made in her honor, her possessions swarm auction houses. She influenced so many celebrities. Who are you to say you made her known again with your stupidity? @KimKardashian."

Also while appearing on The Today Show, Kim shocked fans by revealing she has dropped more weight as concerns continue to grow over her pin-thin figure.
The reality star previously admitted to losing 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress in May.
But her weight loss journey didn't stop there as she opened up about now living a "healthier" lifestyle.
After hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb gushed over Kim's stunning ensemble at the gala, the model explained the great lengths she took to wear the skin-tight dress, including altering her curvy figure.
"I looked at it like a role, and I really wanted to wear this dress… It was really important to me," she exclaimed about her significant weight loss.
But the "role" appeared to be life-changing for the mom of four as she said she continued her diet long after exiting the red carpet.
"It actually taught me a lot about my lifestyle and my health, and since then, afterward, I continued to eat really healthy. I mean, I'm down 21 pounds now," she confessed.
Despite her drastic weight loss, Kim said that she has no plans to drop any more pounds, though she does have a healthier outlook on her eating habits.
