This is despicable. On Sept. 27, Khloé Kardashian was forced, yet again, to address the hate aimed at her daughter’s skin tone. For those of you who are unaware, Koko’s beautiful baby girl, True Thompson, has been a target for racist and colorist comments ever since Kim Kardashian shared the first picture of True alongside her “lighter-skinned” cousins, Chicago West and Stormi Webster.
“I dislike the fact that people are allowed to comment on my daughter’s skin color, but as soon as I comment kindly back and praise her for all that she is, the comment gets erased. If you have the courage to post your nasty criticism, please allow one to defend or comment back,” the 34-year-old wrote.

Naturally, many of Khloé’s fans championed her resilience against such blatant ignorance. “I love seeing people stand up and compliment black/mixed tones. Definitely don’t hear it enough,” one user praised. The KUWTK star then replied with some serious words of wisdom: “We need to learn to praise all skin tones/ethnicities! Our beauty is in our differences. We can learn so much!” she began.
“[I’m] so proud of every human who is confident in who they are. I’m in my 30s [and] I think I’m just finding this confidence.” Khloé went on to write that while she’s “patient with others,” that she believes she should be allowed to voice her opinion freely. Amen to that, girl!
Ever since giving birth to True in May, Khloé has become very interactive with her fans — especially fellow moms — on Twitter. After defending her child, she continued to engage with her followers, and some of her responses were just too good. “Listen, True has changed me like crazy! I’m thankful, but sometimes I do want to stunt on these hoes lol,” Koko wrote after a fan praised how calm she’s been with haters.
Ah, there’s the KhloMoney we all know and love! Just because she’s a mama now, doesn’t mean she’s lost her edge. Remember that, trolls.
