Her caption included a phrase used in Smash Mouth's song "All Star," days after Steve Harwell's death.

Alongside two mirror photos of her in a golden bikini, Kardashian wrote, "All that glitters is gold," a phrase that also appears in the song.
Some commenters found the post insensitive in light of Harwell's death.
On Instagram, Kardashian was called "shallow" and "tone deaf" in her comments section.
"Kim the smash mouth guy just died," one comment read. "Take this down."
The band, however, didn't seem to mind Kardashian's reference, quoting her X post and adding the next words of the song, "only shooting stars."
In comments below Smash Mouth's post, the band agreed with other comments that the post was not insensitive.
"people saying "too soon" really didn't know steve and it shows lol," said one commenter.
"exactly," responded the band's account, alongside the "100" emoji.
