The most famous family lineup in the world loves to stay in highlights. Be it for the right reasons or wrong. They never cease to be in the news. Most recently, one of the Kardashian became the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire. Although that can be debated or rather be termed a bit controversial.
In this blog we list the biggest controversies that have surrounded Kardashian family, get ready to be surprised.
The Pepsi Ad of Kendall Jenner
When she appeared in the Pepsi ad offering a drink to the police officer for peace, amidst a protest, she got backlashes with by many. Piers Morgan accused her of making fun of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and branded the stunt as “stupefyingly diabolical.” Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. tweeted a photo of police holding her father back, she said in her tweet “If only daddy would have known about the power of #Pepsi.”
Kim Kardashian later justified that her sister feels horrible as she was unaware. Pepsi acted too and removed the ad from the market and apologised for putting Kendall Jenner through all that.
Blackface Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian ignited a racial row for posting her blackface photo to promote her KKW beauty line product. People reacted to her darkening the skin only to later flaunt extra bright skin through over editing. Kim replied rather defensively saying she was simply “really tan.” Later she stated that she has “utmost respect for why people might feel the way they did” and she never would want to offend anyone ever.
Cultural Appropriation accusation on Khloe Kardashian
There was a time when Khloe posted a picture of herself with Bantu babe knots and a caption “Bantu Babe.” She was not spared and was accused of cultural appropriation. She realized her mistake after she was branded ridiculous and she deleted that post. Later she uploaded the same picture with a different caption saying “I Like This One Better.”
Diet Lollipop Advertisement by Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian shared a picture of herself licking a diet or appetite suppressing lollipop with her 111 million followers on Instagram. Branded as a toxic influence after she encouraged her fans to hurry and buy that. Instagram took a witty action and “accidentally” deleted her post from her account. A spokesperson later apologized to Kim for the mistake and called it unfortunate. However, Kim never replied.
Tribute for Manchester Terror Attack by Kim
Why she has to be so insensitive? Kim posted a picture of herself enjoying what seemed like a concert with Ariana Grande and Kendall Jenner in Manchester. She posted the picture as a tribute, according to her, to people who died in a terror attack at Ariana’s concert. Later forced to take down that photo from social media. Her caption said, “I am praying for everyone in Manchester. This is truly so senseless & heartbreaking. I can’t imagine the fear and agony these parents must be going through searching for their kids. Concerts are supposed to be a place where you can let loose and have fun.”
People blamed her for narcissistic behaviour and making the tragedy all about herself and not about those who died in that attack.
Kanye West and Trump Controversy
The latest one did not come from a Kardashian but a family member. Kanye West was surrounded by fierce row after he announced support to Donald Trump. He also suggested that 400 Years of slavery in American history is a choice. Will.i.am instantly slammed the rapper says he is trying to “throw our ancestors under the bus to profit” from it.
Kim came out defending her free thinker husband and justified Kanye’s support to trump. But she was worried about the slavery comment. Someone close to Kim said, “Kim is absolutely worried about him right now, but she will defend him publicly to the end.”
These were some the most sparked controversies Kardashians ever got in. However, it is no surprise if they ever get back onto the trail. The Kylie Jenner self-made Billionaire has not died down yet and before it subsides, people can expect something more ridiculous from them.
