She’s clapping back! Khloé Kardashian took to Twitter on Sept. 19 to address the racist and colorist comments made against her precious baby girl True Thompson. First, a fan of the KUWTK star expressed her anger at the shameful situation: “My blood is actually boiling hearing about the completely hateful [and] distasteful comments people are making about [Khloe Kardashian’s] baby True!” they began.
“What is wrong with people? That baby girl is beyond beautiful and anyone that has evil comments should do some serious soul searching!” they concluded. To which Koko replied: “Thank you, love!! Honestly, people are disgusting and they are hurting themselves. For anyone to [critique] a baby is obviously not well.” You tell ’em, mama bear!

This all began on Sept. 14 when Kim Kardashian gifted the internet with the first-ever photo of Chicago West, Stormi Webster, and True all together! Sadly, it quickly went from being a precious family snapshot to a breeding ground hate aimed at little True.
Thankfully, in addition to Koko’s clapback, she has also since disabled her Instagram comments — at least on pictures of her daughter. In fact, the Good American mogul really stuck it to all those terrible people by posting a brand new picture of her bundle of joy on Sept. 18. “My sweet little mama,” she captioned the post encased in pink emoji hearts.
We know what you’re thinking: How could anyone have anything negative to say about such a perfect baby? Turns out, a number of users felt that True was “too dark” in comparison to her lighter-skinned cousins. “I hate that True is so dark, the other two are a nice mix,” read one awful comment on Kim’s post. “True is so ugly… don’t at me!” said another. Sigh. Is this really the world we live in?
Despite the blatant ignorance, however, fans of Khloé and True ran to Twitter in defense of the five-month-old. “It’s actually so vile seeing what people say about Khloé Kardashians daughter. Imagine receiving racist comments about your own child who is [FIVE] MONTHS old,” read one post.
“[OK], so now we stan True Thompson,” wrote another Twitter user. “We may not care for her parents but that adorable little baby is getting such ugly [colorist] comments.” We couldn’t agree with that sentiment more. We stan baby True, too!
Beyond that, we sincerely admire Khloé’s resilience against these people. It’s not easy to share your child with the world, and we’re glad that she’s continued to do so — no matter how much the haters try and bring her down. You’re a brave woman, Khlo! Keep it up.
