These prayer candles come in several variations. Some are decorated with a specific saint, others feature the Virgin Mary or Jesus. They’ve become so popular in the U.S. that you can now buy them at Target. Seriously.

Enter Kim Kardashian, master of self-promotion. Kardashian recently took to Instagram to plug one of her latest products, a prayer candle featuring herself as the Virgin Mary.

DON'T SLEEP ON THE KIM CANDLE. ALMOST SOLD OUT. MORE FROM THIS COLLECTION COMING SOON.

Maybe she saw all the Kim and Kanye candles on Etsy and decided to make her own.

The Kim Candle, which is being sold for $18, is available on Kardashian’s KIMOJI site.

Also for sale: an ash tray featuring a large butt called an “Ass Tray” and fire weed socks (sorry, those are sold out).

And, of course, lots of people were not happy with the move.

Twitter user @marlenebug called Kardashian out for what she believes is hypocrisy:

But not everyone found it distasteful. This guy thought lots of people were blowing the whole thing out of proportion:

Some made jokes…

And others loved it:

Kardashian appeared unfazed by the Kontroversy™. She wore this dress today:

Even Real Madrid Fans Will Laugh At These Messi Memes

Lionel Messi’s performance with Barcelona this past weekend will go down in history. With his team tied 2-2 against their hated rivals, Real Madrid, Messi scored a last-gasp stoppage time goal in what was likely the final play of the game. The goal, his 500th with Barcelona, gave his team the win and placed the blaugranas in a position to fight for the league title against Real Madrid. It also led to a “no F-ing way” nod from the player Messi is most often compared to: Cristiano Ronaldo. And he did it all at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, in front of thousands of rival fans.

Here’s a clip of Messi’s goal and the madness that ensued.

Aside from his clutch goal, Messi’s celebration also stood out:

After scoring the decisive goal, Messi removed his jersey and displayed it to rival fans, in case they forgot who he was.

Of course, the memes hit social media seconds after Messi scored. Here’s Messi doing a little housework.

Messi’s celebration reminded many of this iconic scene:

Some continued to assert he is from another planet.

And others compared him to a deity.

We were reminded that Messi is a man of many talents…

And treated to alternate realities.

Messi even managed to resurrect this old Mexican meme.

The memes weren’t only about Messi’s goal celebration.

There was this Messi-as-a-wrestler GIF…

And a new version of Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic statue.

Ouch.
