Khloe Kardashian has found herself in the midst of a huge controversy after she posted a photo on Instagram that referenced—and seemed to make light of— the KKK.
The youngest Kardashian sister reposted a meme on Tuesday that featured a picture of her with sisters Kim and Kourtney and read “The only KKK to ever let black men in.”
She simply captioned the image “True.”
According to the New York Daily News, the post garnered 405,000 likes and 26,000 comments in approximately two hours.
Many of the comments bashed the Kardashian for her post, and she deleted the meme a few hours later.
But screengrabs of the image still circulated on Twitter, which prompted many users to chime in and debate the offensiveness of the Ku Klux Klan themed pic.
Khloe Kardashian, 30, was married to NBA player Lamar Odom in 2009, and the two split in 2013. Odom is African-American. She is currently rumored to be dating French Montana, a rapper who was born in Morcocco. Kim Kardashian is married to African-American rapper Kanye West, and the two have one daughter together. Kourtney Kardashian has two children with Scott Disick, who is white.
Disick also shared the meme after Khloe Kardashian posted it, though his post has garnered less attention. He has yet to delete it the image, which he captioned "And a Jew," to make reference to himself.
While most users on social media slammed Khloe Kardashian for the image, some defended her and insisted it was no big deal.
Khloe Kardashian has not formally commented on the controversy surrounding the photo, however she did post an Instagram picture that read “We’re all equally f---ed up, some only hide it better.”
