Kardashian sparked a social media storm last week when she unveiled the new line, with some in Japan accusing her of disrespecting the traditional outfit. Following the backlash, Kardashian announced on Twitter and Instagram on Monday that she would change the name. "When I announced the name of my shapewear line, I did so with the best intentions in mind," Kardashian said"My brands and products are built with inclusivity and diversity at their core and after careful thought and consideration, I will be launching my Solutionwear brand under a new name," she said.AFP-Jiji Press
