What’s up with Kim Kardashian regularly breaking the internet? Remember when a sleek photo of her world-famous behind was cover of some magazine, whose purpose was apparently to break the internet? Now, Kim Kardashian can add the Apple Store to the things she has broken, albeit temporarily, when fans came by the hundreds of thousands to simultaneously download her now infamous Kimoji app.

The Kimoji keyboard features cartoon depictions of Kim Kardashian’s oft-memed crying face and the word “basic” in a strategically placed speech bubble.

On Twitter, she further reassured fans that her app development team is working on the issue, and is also fixing the search so users can easily find it.

Included in the Kim Kardashian-themed emoji were a hairdryer, a donut, a hand with black nail polish, and a car that closely looks like the 2015 Rolls Royce phantom she bought in April, and of course, Kim Kardashian’s bare bottom, available in two options: one with a white G-string, the other with a black).
