Khloe Kardashian has been accused of trying to distract people’s attention from her old “racist” clip that has resurfaced by sharing a series of pictures of True – her daughter with ex Tristan Thompson. The 37-year-old is receiving a lot of backlash on the internet after the 2019 clip from ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ started doing rounds on the internet, which reportedly showed her using the N-word, while defending her sister Kim who was accused of appropriating Black culture. 

People even petitioned Hulu, demanding the streaming platform cancel the famous family’s new show ‘The Kardashians’ that is expected to premiere between late January to early February. A petition states that “the Kardashian/Jenner family have continued to perpetuate racism and bullying of young girls throughout their 20 years on TV. Hulu needs to cancel their new show, so women around the world don’t have to feel bad about themselves anymore. Khloe Kardashian saying the N word without Kim Kardashian bating an eye was hard to watch.”

Though Khloe has not reacted to the backlash, she posted photos of her three-year-old daughter with her kitten. The kid was dressed in a white tank while she held the animal adorably. True’s mother did not write any caption and just put a white heart in the post's caption. While people complimented the photos, there were some who alleged that by posting her baby’s images, she’s "side-stepping" the recent scandal.



 

A critic wrote on Reddit, “True and her kitten are adorable, but I am just reminded of that theory where they post their kids after a scandal.” Another wrote: “Posting their kids when something bad gets brought up about them,” while a third user added,  “Queue the 'use the kids to distract from scandals' trick."

Is Khloe Kardashian Black?

In the resurfaced video, Khloe was reportedly taking the side of her elder sister Kim Kardashian after she was accused of appropriating black culture. Giving back to the trolls, the former wife of Lamar Odom apparently said: “Hashtag fact, my baby is black. Hashtag I only like black c**k. That's what I would say.” She also reportedly said the N-word and said that haters often use the term to address her.

Khloe is not Black, though a lot of people believe that she might be. But in reality, she’s actually Armenian. Her late father Robert Kardashian was an Armenian while her mother Kris Jenner is of English, Irish, Dutch, German, and Scottish descent.

Also in July 2020, while making an appearance on Leomie Anderson's ‘Role Model’ podcast, Khloe talked about the race of her child, who is Black. She said: “I will be always learning and trying to do the best I can do as being her mom, but I'm obviously not a woman of color." Khloe went on to say, “I know some people get uncomfortable with talking to their kids about race or they think, 'Oh we live in a bubble. We never have to address that my child is Black’. I mean, of course you do! You're only setting them up I think for failure if you don't talk about race and probably the things that they're going to endure once they're in, quote, the 'real world,'” before adding, “The beauty of having some of my sisters in the same situation is we get to have those conversations probably together.”
