'Keeping up with the Kardashians': Corey Gamble’s rift with Scott Disick about 'whooping a**' sparks debate on cultural differences in parenting
'Keeping up with the Kardashians' stars Scott and Corey got into a heated argument over Corey's comments of "whooping a**" to disicipline children. This led to an extensive discussion on social media about cultural differences in parenting.
‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ season 17 has started on a very strong note. A preview clip of episode 3 which released earlier this week, shows Corey and Scott get into a heated argument about disciplining children. Corey suggests “whooping a**” as a form of discipline, while Scott finds it unacceptable.
This little exchange between the men, led to an extensive discussion on social media, with people taking sides. While some agree with Corey that disciplining children using mild physical force is alright, others found it way out of line. It was interesting to note that many of the Black families seemed to agree with Corey. While the remaining fans felt that Corey was way out of line for even offering the suggestion and that it should be left to parents of the child to decide how they want to discipline their children.
A fan who seems to agree with Corey wrote, “I didn’t watch #KUWTK but I just saw the clip. And I’m on team Corey. We don’t know the full story/scene. But from what I heard, if a child scratches me or hits me...they getting some KIND of discipline. Some white people never seem to discipline their kids.” Another fan who shared similar thoughts wrote, “Y’all have never been around black families sounds like. Corey wasn’t out of line. That’s literally how my “aunties” used to talk to my mom about me and my siblings if we were acting out. Y’all dramatic. #KUWTK”.
Fans pointed out that it was the cultural difference between Scott and Corey that led to their argument. A fan tweeted, “Im a mother with 3 kids and I don't condone hitting. Corey looked so shocked, in his culture, it's rarely heard that a child attacks an adult. I think he was stunned Scott was very relaxed abt it. Made good drama for their show! Ratings lol”. “Now this is major culture clash! Can't say that i blame corey tho, i grew up with whoopings here and there so but i also cant blame scott for getting mad either”, shared a fan who felt that neither Corey nor Scott was in the wrong in the situation.
