After posting a totally offensive Ku Klux Klan joke on Instagram on Nov. 11, Khloe Kardashian has apologized for her lapse in judgment in yet another Instagram!
As funny as you might think your Ku Klux Klan joke is, it’s probably just best to opt for a limerick about somebody from Nantucket. On Nov. 11, Khloe Kardashian, 30, posted a meme on her Instagram which, while in good faith, was more than a little offensive. In an new Instagram, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has issued an indirect apology of sorts. Check it out!
Khloe Kardashian Apologizes For KKK Instagram Joke Meme: We’re All ‘F***ed Up’
“We’re all equally f***ked up,” Khloe’s message read. “Some only hide it better.”
Sure, it’s not a formal press release apology, but it’s something! Clearly, Khloe is telling her 14.5 million Instagram followers that she is just as human as the rest of us and just as likely to totally miss the mark and to mess up royally.
Khloe Kardashian: ‘The Only KKK To Ever Let Black Men In’
In case you missed it, the offensive Instagram in question (which has now been pulled), was a photo of Khloe with sisters Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian. It read: “The only KKK to ever let black men in.”
We get what Khloe is saying and all, but it might not be best to evoke the image of burning crosses and lynchings, like, ever, and especially not for a crass, simple-minded joke.
What made matters worse is that Kourtney’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, posted the same photo after Khloe did, with the caption “And a Jew.” Now, the lapse in judgment extends to other members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. As of this writing, Scott has yet to pull down the offensive post.
HollywoodLifers, do you accept Khloe’s apology, or was it not enough? Let us know.
