Self-styled celebrity super family the Kardashians love their annual Christmas card. Over the years they’ve built up a smorgasboard of festive snaps, which have become more overblown as the family has slowly risen up the celebrity food chain. Last year’s was an all-white number with ticker tape and bubbly, which made it look as if they were trapped in a 2013 version of The Crystal Maze, but this year their yuletide snap went further and almost broke the internet.

And Hova is far from the only rapper accused of having Illuminati ties.
