She's learned her lesson. Khloé Kardashian was caught up in the middle of a bit of a scandal on Friday, July 20 after she went on Instagram live to record her workout with her sister, Kourtney Kardashian. During the live, both Khloé and Kourtney said the "r-word," and fans were so upset that they took to Twitter to complain — and Khloé quickly apologized for her actions.
On Friday, Khloé and Kourt took to their Instagram accounts to share a live video of their joint workout, but Kourt suggested that she join Khloé's live so fans can see them both on the same screen. It took Kourt a while to figure out how to request to join Khlo's live and it took Khlo a while to allow Kourtney to join her live, and the sisters bickered with each other as they tried to figure it all out.
"Yes, you can, you f--king r----d," Kourt was allegedly heard saying in the background, according to Us Weekly. When Kourt was having trouble joining Khlo's live, Khlo said to Kourt, "Are you f--king r------d?"
The r-word has a negative connotation and could be interpreted as hate speech, and it's very offensive to people who have an intellectual disability and their loved ones.
Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that? You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! 😞 much love today— Khloé (@khloekardashian) July 20, 2018
"I was watching your live stream on Instagram until you said the 'r' word. You should pay more attention to your word choices, especially since you have a huge following [and] don’t know who you could be offending. If True had a disability you would use a different word," one fan tweeted at Khloé.
But Khloé seemed very apologetic about her actions, and she quickly responded to that fan. "Ugh, I hate that word! Why did I even say that?" the new mom wrote back. "You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! Much love today."
