Khloé Kardashian has apologised for throwing the R word around during a chat with her older, Kourtney.
In the now-deleted video shared on her Instagram, the mum of one daughter is seen telling Kourtney, who was struggling to figure out how to start the live session: “Yes, you can, you fucking retard.”
She used the R word repeatedly and many people found that offensive because the word had overtime become a pejorative used to refer to people with mental disabilities.
See the video below.
So, folks roasted Khloé on social media.
“People like Khloé Kardashian make me sick. Throwing the ‘R’ word around casually is a sick thing. Wish we cared about this word as much as other offensive words,” said one Twitter user.
Another directly tweeted at Khloé, saying: “I was watching your livestream on Instagram until you said the “r” word. You should pay more attention to your word choices especially since you have a huge following&don’t know who you could be offending. If True had a disability you would use a different word.”
And the reality star responded to the backlash, saying she never meant to offend anyone. “Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that? You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry!”
