Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker face criticism for ‘disrespectful’ Catholic wedding

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have offended people over a specific aspect of their wedding in Italy.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are under fire for “mocking” Catholicism with their lavish Italian wedding ceremony.

While saying “I do” on Sunday, the reality star wore a white Dolce & Gabbana minidress with a dramatic veil, which was adorned with the image of the Virgin Mary, a nod to a tattoo her new husband got in the top of the head. her head.

While Barker, 46, has spoken publicly about her ties to the Catholic faith, it’s unclear if Kardashian, 43, is a member of the church. However, the Poosh founder has shared many faith texts, quotes, and Bible passages through her Instagram Stories over the years.

“Is it a little weird that Kourtney’s wedding is like this Catholic ‘aesthetic’ like the Virgin Mary in her wedding dress and veil?” one person wrote on Twitter.

A second added: “Do I really feel like Travis and Kourtney’s wedding is making a mockery of the Catholic religion? They don’t symbolize religious people at all, it just feels like a mockery. I’m not Catholic, but it just doesn’t sit well with me.”

Another fan said he was “happy” for the newlyweds, but argued that “the liturgical garments worn during mass are not something fashionable.”

One person even said they were “offended” by Kardashian’s short dress.

“I’m just going to put it bluntly. Kourtney Kardashian’s use of the Blessed Mother in her outfit(s) of hers during her wedding weekend was extremely offensive to me as a Catholic… I have a right to be offended by that,” they wrote on Twitter.

Barker, for his part, previously told Vice that he was raised Catholic.

“I got the Virgin Mary tattooed on my foreman when I was 18 or 19 years old. And I was raised Catholic,” she said in an interview in November 2015.

“I definitely pray; I believe in God. I definitely think I was blessed… So I’m not in church every day and I’m not pushing people with religion. But I believe in God and I pray and my children pray.”

The couple also faced backlash for possibly allowing their nuptials to give “free publicity” to fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, which has been the subject of controversy.

“I love Kourtney and Travis, but Dolce & Gabbana dressing the whole family for the wedding is not,” one person argued, referring to the fact that the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan dressed in looks from the Italian brand.

Another added: “Dolce & Gabbana have been trying to revive their brand over problematic body shaming and racist comments. So this exhibit is a real bargain for the KarJenners and a real media coup for D&G.”
