For some fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, watching Lamar Odom, 36, regain the ability to walk following his near-death experience was inspirational moment full of joy.

Lamar appeared in the May 8 episode of KUWTK in a big way. Not only did the episode include a heartbreaking photo of him hooked up to breathing tubes, it also showed him relearning how to walk. Though it was tragic to see him so close to death, it was amazing to watch him come back from the brink!
However, some KUWTK fans thought that including Lamar’s struggle in this episode exploited Lamar’s pain for ratings and they told Khloe directly. Khloe uploaded a video of her and Kylie Jenner, 18, grooving to Rihanna’s “Work” on the same day of the episode. Though the video was completely unrelated to KUWTK, fans trashed Khloe over the episode in the comments!
“Just when you though this family couldn’t stoop any lower,” one user, BkingJames3 said. “Even if Lamar did give you the green light [to share the footage] you all knew that he wasn’t able to make those type of [decisions] yet.” Another user, debb729, said, “There will always be a new low for them to hit. It’s all about money and ratings.”
“I can’t believe you guys used Lamar’s near death experience as footage for the show,” user OutgoinglyShy said. “EVERYTHING does not have to be shared with the world.” Of course, the user was saying this to a Kardashian on her social media, so the criticism seemed a bit odd.
If that video proves anything, Khloe is way too busy enjoying life to give her haters a second though. Though, what she might consider is giving marriage with Lamar a second time. During the episode of KUWTK, Khloe revealed what it would take for her to say “I Do” to Lamar again. So, she’s saying there’s a still a chance that Khlomar could get back together?
What do you think about KUWTK showing footage of Lamar in the hospital, HollywoodLifers? Was it okay for them to do that?
