Khloe Kardashian Instagram ‘KKK’ Joke: Even ‘KUWTK’ Fans Shocked, Angered By Racist Meme

Khloe Kardashian made an Instagram post on the same day her sister, Kim, also posted a Photoshopped image of her exposed butt, and while the unclothed Kim Kardsashian photo was supposed to “break the internet,” the Khloe Instagram seems to have broken Khloe’s relationship with her fans who were disturbed and angry that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star appeared to find humor in comparing her family to the Ku Klux Klan.

The Instagram meme was a presumable reference to the fact that Khloe and her sister Kim Kardashian have dated and married African-American men, and included a picture of Kardashian sisters Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim with the caption, “The only KKK to ever let black men in.”

Kourtney’s boyfriend Scott Disick reposted the meme on his own Instagram, adding the comment, “And a Jew,” a reference to the fact that Disick, himself, is Jewish.

The Ku Klux Klan, of course — in addition to holding a violently anti-Semitic ideology — has been responsible for thousands of murders and lynchings of American black people throughout its history. By one estimate, between 1882 and 1951, 3,437 blacks and 1,293 whites were lynched in the United States, with the KKK being involved in a large percentage of those brutal killings.

In the 1960s, the KKK made an unwelcome comeback in response to the civil rights movement, and according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors the activities of hate groups, “the Klan’s bombings, murders and other attacks took a great many lives, including, among others, four young girls killed while preparing for Sunday services at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.”

The SPLC describes the Klan as “the most infamous — and oldest — of American hate groups.”

Nonetheless, Khloe Kardashian on Tuesday linked the Kardashian-KKK meme with the comment, “true.” But once reaction from fans, even those claiming to “love the Kardashians” poured in, the photo was quickly deleted.

Disick, however, left the photo up — despite the outpouring of anger.

The Khloe Kardashian Instagram meme had occasional defenders, however.

While she has yet to comment directly on her Instagram post, Khloe Kardashian did post another photo on Instagram that consisted only of a neon sign spelling out the phrase, “We’re all equally f****d up. Some only hide it better.” Khloe Kardashian also posted a pair of tweets that seemed to make reference to her own suffering, following the Instagram controversy.
