Kris Jenner's In Hot Water From Native American Groups Over 'Indian Giver' Comment!

Kris Jenner Indian Giver

During an interview, Kris Jenner called Kris Humphries an ‘indian giver,’ which sparked an entire controversy!

Poor, Kris Jenner! Not only is she being forced to talk about her daughter Kim Kardashian‘s divorce over and over again while she promotes her book, now she has her foot in her mouth after referring to her former son-in-law, Kris Humphries, as an “indian giver” for asking for his $2 million ring back. After hearing Kris’ comment on Good Morning America Nov. 3, Jacqueline Johnson Pata, Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians, told HollywoodLife.com she found the remark “irresponsible and inappropriate.”

“The phrase ‘Indian giver’ is wrong and hurtful,” Pata said. “The cultural values of Native Americans are based on giving unconditionally and empowering those around them. Instead this cultural value is forgotten when negative stereotyping of Native people occurs.”

To make matters worse, Kris made the offensive comment during the worst possible time — Native American Heritage Month.

“November is Native American Heritage Month and this moment calls for a reflection on the contributions of America’s first peoples to this great country,” Pata explained. “We invite the Jenner and Kardashian family to join with the country in learning more during Native American Heritage Month.”

The whole world new that this wasnt going to work. Kim is too wrapped up in fame to Love anyone. But the bible says
” It will be easier for a Camel to get through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into Heaven” That should be everyone’s concern. Getting to Heaven!

The mom, Kris J. is no help to this young couple trying to find their way. To have them immediately have to film scenes in NY under the same roof with Kourtney (a marriage hater) and Scott who still sneaks his drinking habit, but at least is honest about it is the last thing that you would want to do to a young couple coming off a fabulous honeymoon. What a shame that the family needs the money so bad that they would do this to Kim. The mother’s Native American statements are just down right rude and inconsiderate. Now Kim is off and has departed from MN, no doubt for more damage control as their “brand” goes down the tubes in a heartbeat. No sympathy from me. The whole family is still disgusting to me. Now I hear that the production company actually says that they paid for the ring so she need not return it to Kris H. . What a farce of a situation for Seacrest. No one should ever watch his sham of a so-called reality show that is staged to the max.

Signed up just so I could leave a comment. Am (was a big fan of your family till I just heard your comment about how you don’t think Kim should give her ring back. You said you hate Indian givers.
That statement is misfortuna­te about the Indian comment but was truly disgusting in encouragin­g her to keep the ring. SHE was the one who went back on her word not to stay married.. and
after such a short time. For her to keep the ring actually makes me sick and as long as she keeps it I will be sickened by you and her. Really pathetic.
Kim.. until you give the ring back (and all the presents!) every morning when you
look at yourself in the mirror I hope you see the ugliness lurking beneath. Sad. I’m sure the lies will start soon about not making money, etc. maybe even attacking Kris H. since you are getting so much flack. Save it.
No one believes you.

Use of this antiquated, racist term on national tv shows just how uneducated, clueless, and ignorant this woman and her family truly are. She needs to encourage her money-grubbing daughter to return the ring since she is the one who filed for the divorce. How selfish can one be? No wonder these kids of hers are disrespectful and self-absorbed….they get it from their mama! She owes the Native American community an apology and the Humphries family for trying to vilify their son. She needs to sit down and shut up!

Not only was the comment offensive, but her entire attitude is highly offensive. How can she speak so lightly of returning a $2-million-plus ring or ANY ring given in anticipation of building a life together? They stage a monstrous farce of a wedding that they bill as the U.S. version of the “Royal Wedding” and then treat the whole idea of divorce as though it means nothing. . .simply checking if off their daily to-do list: file for divorce, check; catch plane to Australia to promote handbag line, check; promote silly book about family empire, check. They obviously have NO RESPECT for the sanctity of marriage, and yet they try to sell the public on the idea that their show is really all about family. I suppose that they decided that they want to deal with the issue of divorce on-camera, and Kris Humphries is the collateral damage. These people truly need a REALITY check. Vote with your remote and show them that life is more than just TV ratings.

Friday on the morning show – GMA-? with Robin Roberts and George S. It was an interview with her best ‘suck up’ Hollywood friend, Laura Spencer… very awkward moment … she laughed like she thought it was cute and so did air-head Laura …it wasn’t!

Again the kardash freaks make counter accusations against the higher moral victim Humphries this time to wrongly shame him into requesting ring back. Kim K should want ti give ring back our if self respect to show him and her once friends she is genuinely sorry. Against she has no Sence if right and wrong. Give the ring back or you’ll look more like the money hungry divorcee you are. Do it because it’s the right thing to do regardless what the law might allow you to do. You essentially stole that ring anyway- theft by false presence- that’s a felony. Give it back.

I couldn’t believe that came out of her mouth. Intelligence certainly isn’t a strong point for anyone in that family and that’s a shame.

Eric: I’m not American Indian but you and anyone who agrees that American Indians offended by this should relax, you need to get in the same rowboat as Kris Jenner – preferably one with a REAL BIG leak – and starting rowing for the wild blue yonder and, if we’re lucky, sink along the way.

People are so sensitive to things stupid celebrities say these days it’s dumb. Then some organization says it’s offended and everyone agrees. Although what she said was stupid, who f’ing cares, she’ll be gone in 30 years and no one will even remember this, or her book.

Phil: It doesn’t matter if someone will be gone in 30 years, or however many years. Calling an African American the “N” word, using ethnic slurs for Asians, using the word “Jew” to describe dishonesty which is what Kris Jenner did here with American Indians IS NOT OKAY!! And the rest of us should be damn upset about it. What Kris did was disgusting but running a very close second are people like you who think this is no big deal.
