It looks like Kardashians can't go a day without a scandal. Ever since the news came about Kris Jenner's ex-husband becoming a woman, it looks like his family is trying to catch up on media exposure. Khloe Kardashian is no different, and she has recently sparked an online outrage when she posted a selfie on Instagram wearing a niqab. The photo was taken as she was vacationing in Dubai. The caption of the photo shared with 22.9 million followers said “Habibi Love.” “Habibi” basically means “beloved.”
Khloe was immediately called out for being “culturally inappropriate,” and this was not the first time she has been criticized over that. In October she posted a photo of herself and her brother-in-law Scott Disick with both of them wearing costumes for Halloween. She was dressed as a cat and he was wearing a traditional Arabian garb. The caption of the photo said “Sheik Pussy,” which made matters worse.
Khloe apologized for the photo on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. “I’m really upset that I’ve offended anybody," she said. "I’m even more bothered that the commenters think I’m poking fun at their culture. I didn’t realize how offensive it was. I didn’t know I was doing anything wrong. I really just have to be more aware of what I write, even if I think it’s tongue-in-cheek and I have to be more sensitive to that. I’m sorry to anybody I offended. That was the last thing I ever wanted to do."
