A clip resurfaces of Khloe Kardashian allegedly using the n-word when speaking to her sister, Kim Kardashian, and mother, Kris Jenner, has appealed to people calling for the famous family’s cancellation for their behavioral history racist.
In the video, which is presumed to date from 2019, Kardashian can be heard ranting with her family about having a black baby.
The reality TV star laments media criticism of her for repeatedly dating black men. She roughly explains the reason for her dating history by saying, “I love black c ***.”
Khloe Kardashian then reportedly said the n word in the resurfaced clip.
Although word has been sounded – so it is not possible to hear what she is saying – fans of the show were quick to accuse Kardashian of saying the insult and seemingly objectifying. black men.
The clip began to circulate on social media, with many voicing their opinions on the matter, including calling on Hulu to cancel the Kardashian / Jenner family from its network amid the upcoming premiere of their new reality show. .
This isn’t the first time the Kardashians have come under scrutiny for racist behavior.
The famous family too has a long history of cultural appropriation, building their years of glory and money on the backs of other cultures, and very rarely giving credit.
The Kardashians are no strangers to harnessing the dark for their own benefit.
They have been called repeatedly for exploiting people of color to promote their own businesses and presence in the entertainment industry.
The Kardashian sisters are used to being accused of ripping off black designers for their own clothing brands.
Khloe Kardashian’s denim brand Good American has been accused of stealing designs from black entrepreneur Destiny Bleu.
Bleu’s work was reportedly stolen by the founder of Good American and touted as something groundbreaking “designed” by Kardashian.
Before Kylie Jenner launched Kylie Swim, the youngest Jenner had released camouflage bikini sets very similar to those designed by Tizita Balemlay’s Plugged NYC brand.
Jenner also requested many items from Balemlay before releasing her own collection which was conveniently the same as Balemlay’s clothing line.
There’s also the heavy objectification of black men that occurs in the Kardashian sisters, and the lack of empathy for the black community despite the fact that the majority of their children are black themselves.
When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s marriage ended, Allison P. Davis wrote in Vulture magazine that the “Kardashian sisters’ relationships with black men and the multiracial children they had with them seemed to provide some kind of cultural cover for their appropriation.”

Of course, there’s also the huge trend for the Kardahians / Jenners to wear intricately braided hairstyles and wigs, with Kylie Jenner claiming she ‘started’ wigs.
“I started wigs, and now everyone wears wigs” Jenner told Marie Claire magazine. “Kim [Kardashian] I just used my wig guy last night … I just do what I want, and people will follow. “
Many people on the internet were rightly upset by the statement, given that black women wore wigs long before white women like Jenner decided to start.
The Kardashian / Jenner sisters have continuously changed their appearance to reflect many characteristics that are eerily like that of black women.
Their participation in racial fetishization, taking advantage of black culture but decidedly not defending the culture they make so much money with, is both intentional and performative.
