Kim Kardashian Caught Up In Tanning Scandal

Kim Kardashian may be a very busy girl, but that doesn’t mean she can’t find a spare eight hours for an elaborate practical joke!

The reality star popped a spray tan on and left the darkening complexion on for eight hours, allowing her appearance to alter quite drastically.

Whaddaya make of her new sunkissed look?

Kim papped the photo on Instagram and, to make sure as many fans saw it as possible, posted it on Twitter to her 14.6 million followers.

And, in a controversial move, she posted it alongside a caption which referenced Patricia Krentcil, the Tanning Mom.

“The tannerexic mom has some serious competition!!! LOL”

For those NOT in the know, the Tanning Mom is a very tanned lady who apparently took her five-year-old daughter to a tanning salon.

Luckily Kim hadn’t put her own skin in sunny danger and she quickly soothed her angry fans with the information that her tan came straight out of a bottle:

“Relax that’s just a spray tan!!! It washed off & I’m back to my normal tan self! But how crazy does it look after being on for 8 hours!”

What do you make of Kim’s new look?
