Kim Kardashian Forced To Apologize To People Of Indian Descent After Insult

Kim Kardashian Indian Food

Kim Kardashian took to her blog to apologize after calling Indian food “disgusting” on an episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’

Twitter followers were outraged when Kim Kardashian, 31, dissed a national Indian dish on her family reality show last week. Oops!

“I think it’s good Kim Kardashian doesn’t like Indian food, because that means she won’t ever visit India and that in itself is a blessing,” one user tweeted.

Another user tweeted: “Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called Indian food ‘so disgusting.’ Seriously? You don’t have to like it, but don’t be rude.”

However, Kim quickly apologized and emphasized that her dislike of Indian food has nothing to do with how she feels about the people.

“In NO way was this intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste,” she wrote on her blog.

Kim even used her own Armenian heritage to defend herself against the harsh tweets.

“There are definitely some Armenian foods that I personally find disgusting, but that doesn’t reflect my opinions on other Armenian people or my culture. My comment wasn’t intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine,” she wrote.

Looks like Kim’s taste in food caused an international conflict, but the reality star didn’t waste a second in clearing it all up.

Do YOU think Kim was wrong to say that on TV?

While I agree with many who say that Kim has a right to her opinion about Indian food, I wonder if when invited out to dinner and others order Indian food, it is polite to say that the food is disgusting. Anyone would think that this is bad manners and disrespectful. I also feel that many are not feeling the “disgusting” accusation because KIM is the one saying it.

I do think that you can have an opinion about certain foods and how they taste but just don’t say it publicly, Indians may enjoy that food so now when a high status celebrity says that their food is disgusting, it should be understandable why people are lashing out. I think the right thing Kim should of said was “I rather eat something else” or “It’s not my taste” but saying that “It’s disgusting” is highly offensive.

I don’t like Kim Kardashian, but she does have the right to not like certain foods.
I don’t like Indian food either. I thought she had said something racy. Not liking food is not that bad.
Kim should say sorry for being a whinny baby if anything!!

I don’t really like her, but come on, she has the right to dislike food. This is just people over reacting. I am not a huge fan of German food, am I being rude? No.

Who is she and what does she think of herself.
India and Indian people are not shallow like her to get insulted by such remarks.

But definitely it does show how shallow this person is. Thoughtless and thinking very highly about oneself , selfish.

An ignorant about rest of the world.

Kim whore is the one disgusting.

She’s not referring to the Indian people but to the food that they are eating and that hurtif she doesn’t like it then don’t eat it. You do not need to announce it on your tv shoe for a lot of peole to watch.

Kim can express her opinion on food likes or dislikes. I am not a fan but she did not do anything wrong.

Where did Kim apologize? She did not apologize, she made it clear that she did not offend Indian people, she just does not like Indian food. I don’t like Indian food, cilantro and I almost threw up the first I tried African food. Kim did not retrack her thoughts on Indian food and doesn’t need too. That is her opinion to have. Some people love to blow the smallest things out of porportion.

I agree she did not apologize, and she shouldn’t, the fact that this is even a discussion is a joke

This is one time, and I hope the only time, I agree with the attention whore. Saying you don’t like certain foods from foreign countries does not mean you don’t like the people who live there. I do believe she could have said it in a better way but then again look who you’re dealing with..
