When it comes to the world of .gif creation and online memes, the Kardashians are never far away.
With the likes of the ‘Name a more iconic duo… I’ll wait’ meme of Kylie and Kendall Jenner that got globally mocked and Inception-d as a meme within a meme, their involvement in all things culturally hilarious is unavoidable.
But the latest meme to emerge is, how do we say this, downright weird. We’re all used to see Kim K relaxing at home duirng an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and, on her Instagram, wearing very little in a number of saucy snaps, but this brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘relaxing in the buff’.
In short, the new craze sees people sharing edited photos of Kim Kardashian-West sporting massively buff arms.
Admittedly, the results are utterly hilarious; as people added a variety of captions to the Photoshopped images that began to circulate on Twitter.
Some of the captions are pretty, ahem, interesting, after the first sightings of ‘Buff Kim’ emerged.
With almost 75,000 retweets, the new ‘bodybuilder Kim’ went viral, as plenty of users followed suit with their own takes.

And it seemed people were loving the muscle-bound image of the Kardashian, which went down an equally strange Twitter rabbit hole.

In the past, Kim has been accused of Photoshopping her Instagram images and had a particularly revealing Paper Magazine cover favourably edited, which was captioned ‘Break the internet’ before the original, untouched photo was leaked.
It’s a busy time for the Kardashian-Jenner family, with Kim and Kanye West having welcomed their third child into the family via a surrogate, Kylie giving birth to Stormi Webster, and sister Khloe who is currently pregnant.
