Kimono, which means “thing to wear” in Japanese, is a type of traditional outfit worn in Japan, featuring wide sleeves on a long, loose robe that is that bound by a sash. The garment is worn typically by women.

Those outraged by the name even coined a hashtag “KimOhNo” as a play on the pronunciation of the word.
