Khloé Kardashian Apologise For Using R-Word On Social Media
Khloé Kardashian is sorry. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star apologized after coming under fire for using the R-word during an Instagram Live session on Thursday, July 19.
Khloé, 34, became frustrated while trying to connect her sister Kourtney Kardashian’s smartphone with her own before a morning workout. “Yes, you can, you f—–g retard,” Kourtney, 39, was heard saying off-camera. As they continued to configure their devices, Khloé responded, “Are you f–—-g retarded?”
Over on Twitter, several fans called out the sisters for using the pejorative term. “@khloekardashian did a live insta today using a discriminatory word. Retarded, what we call the R-word,” one user tweeted. “I love the Kards but this shocked me & is repulsive.”
Another fan wrote, “I was watching your livestream on Instagram until you said the ‘r’ word. You should pay more attention to your word choices especially since you have a huge following & don’t know who you could be offending. If [your daughter] True had a disability you would use a different word @khloekardashian.”
Not long after, Khloé responded to the second tweeter with an apology. “Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that?” she wrote. “You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! much love today.”
