Fans of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian West were thrilled when her Kimoji app debuted in the Apple Store Monday. It’s a bunch of emoji in the E! reality star’s likeness and fans went wild. In fact, they went so wild that they crashed the App store.
Kardashian West, 35, took to Twitter to “apologize,” though she really just basked in the attention her new app got. "Apple, I'm so sorry I broke your App Store!!!" she wrote. "I can't believe so many people downloaded my KIMOJI app that it affected the entire app store! We worked so hard on this app & we know there are some issues due to the massive downloads that the whole tech team is so working on! My Kimoji app will be up and running again soon! They are also working on fixing the search so u can easily find it!” She added: “ Ahhhhhhhh I still can't believe we broke the entire App Store!!!! # KIMOJI”
Kardashian West’s new app has more than emoji that are featured in her likeness, though. There are also 250 food, beauty and pop culture-related emoji, People magazine reported Monday. She has apparently been working on it with her tech team for more than two years.
Not surprisingly, it comes with a glazed peach, to represent her famous derriere, and a Kardashian West hair flip. She debuted these during a screenshotted conversation with her sisters Monday.

Possibly most importantly, though, it includes the E! reality star’s iconic crying face. While she is widely considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, she’s an ugly crier. The world learned this when she talked about her divorce from her second husband, NBA player Kris Humphries.
