Aaliyah is one of the most beloved musical artists of the modern era. Since her untimely death in 2001, the beloved Aaliyah has been up there with Tupac and Biggie in terms of how much the Black community defends and protects her legacy and honor.

Because of this, the Black community does not tolerate the wrong person paying tribute on Halloween to an all-time great — and it’s really no surprise that people who love Aaliyah and people who hate Kim Kardashian are one in the same.

Kardashian has paid tribute to musical icons for Halloween by dressing up as Cher, Madonna and Aaliyah. The belief is that Kardashian sullies and contaminates whatever she puts her hands on or salutes, so folks don’t want the reality queen to touch one of the community’s most treasured gems.

As such, Twitter tore into Kim K for her failed attempt to honor Aaliyah. Check it out:
