People were BIG MAD about her misstep.
Khloe Kardashian is the latest celebrity to be criticized for using inappropriate language. Her Instagram live featured the R-word, which upset many people. Now, some might not even know which term is up for discussion. The last time anyone got in trouble for using it might have been The Black Eyed Peas, whose insensitive track required a clean version, "Let's Get it Started." Indeed, the term is "retard."
In the video, Kardashian is heard mocking her sister, Kourtney: "Yes, you can, you f*cking retard." The video was deleted from Kardashian's social media account but was re-uploaded to youtube since then.
The social media star was immediately called out by her fans. Some of them literally had "no respect" when doing so. Others pointed out her mistake in a gentle manner. Khloe responded by admitting she made a mistake and owning up to it without fabricating excuses. Her response quelled some of the upset.
Perhaps this episode will make these siblings speak to each other with more respect in addition to being more mindful of the kind of language they promote. Of course, their life has become entertainment for many people, but they are still role models for some. That may or may not include their own children.
