The provocative post, which saw didn’t got down well with many of the former TOWIE star’s following.
People lashed out in their droves and slammed Megan McKenna for daring to “copycat” Queen Kim, and commented on her surprisingly dark fake tan.
One angry commentator wrote: “Babe I think you’re fab but that fake tan is NOT a good look. Golden glow sure but that looks like you’ve been Ronseal’d. Sorry”
Another said: “Did you have a Ross moment in the tanning booth ?”
While others insisted, “Like an Asda’s own version of @KimKardashian and “Aldi version of @michkeegan”
Not one to keep quiet when confronted with a row, Megan hit back and said her post was a compliment to 37-year-old Kim.

Some fans speculated that Megan’s post was a reaction to reports that her ex Pete Wicks is dating Amber Davies, which both parties have denied.
However, she was also seen on a night out on Boxing Day with Mike Thalassitis and a crew of pals. Their appearance sparked rumours Megan was dating the Love Island star, but it has now been revealed that the 25 year old’s new love interest is Mike’s best friend, Simon Legg.
Megan and Simon were spotted leaving Studio 338 with their arms around one another.
Further proving their bond, Megan shared a snap of her group of friends after their night out, with Simon seen standing behind the Essex babe as she poses alongside best friend Amber Turner.
A representative for Megan told OK! Online the pair are not dating and that they are just friends.
