Find out why Khloé Kardashian’s Instagram photo is being called racist by some fans. The photo is part of her new photo shoot for her Good American clothing line.
In one pic, Kardashian and model Slick Woods pose together, with Khloé standing and Woods crouched down, holding onto Kardashian’s leg while she rests her hand behind Woods’ head and neck.
Plenty of fans are in an uproar over the image. Some people even thought Kardashian should delete the photo altogether.
Kardashian has yet to respond to the backlash, though she did post a few photos to Instagram. The first was a photo of some bright pink and white peonies, with the caption “a few of my favorite things.” Afterwards, she posted a gorgeous selfie with hearts surrounding her face. The caption included a little prayer, writing: “Lord, Thank You for giving me the health and strength I need to overcome every strong hold in my life and for loving me unconditionally in the times that I may fail you. Amen.”
Complaints ranged from: “THIS IS MAD DISRESPECTFUL @khloekardashian WTF IS THIS” to “Distasteful” and “Love khlo but second photo is very disturbing.”
One fan explained: “Body language is everything and this is not okay! Ask your photographers what type of body language do you thing this pose should imply? Because this is racist. Look up the history behind rich white women taking pics of there slave maids.”
Similarly, on Twitter, fans weighed in, with one writing: “Khloe isn’t racist but having a black woman crouch at her feet was stupid and she should have known that. Like the public already has a perception about the family so she should try to avoid feeding into it.”
