Instagram’s Khadi Don Courts Controversy After ‘Kardashian Kombat’ Video Goes Viral

Another wave of notoriety for Instagram queen Khadi Don turned sour just hours after the viral personality’s newest video centered on members of the Kardashian family first blew up on social media.

The visual, which was shared late Wednesday evening to Don’s Instagram page, displays the Los Angeles-based up-and-coming entertainer going to “war” on behalf of Rob Kardashian in a makeshift version of Mortal Kombat, the popular video game franchise that allows players to gruesomely “finish” their opponents at the end of a battle.

In the controversial comedy video, Khadi costumes herself as several past and present cast members of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, including sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, who Don emulates through their most stereotypical attributes (such as Kim’s ample derriere and Khloe’s recently-acquired Revenge Body) and personal attitudes (including Kourtney’s general, apparent aloofness to life outside of parenting, and “momager” Kris Jenner’s ability to capture just about everything her children do on film).

As for the Jenners, Khadi-as-Kendall is seen brandishing a pair of Pepsi cans as her weapons for Kombat, while “Kylie” defends herself with trays of makeup and spouting lyrics from the song “Dear Mama” by the late Tupac Shakur — whose image Kylie and Kendall have been recently accused of tarnishing on a batch of now-shelved shirts that saw the young reality stars’ faces superimposed over that of Shakur’s.


Where Khadi steered wrong, it seems, is with the way she chose to portray the transgender Caitlyn Jenner, who is noticeably larger in size to her cisgender female counterparts in the “game” and yells with a manly voice.

“B***h, b***h,” Khadi’s “Caitlyn” repeats, while kicking in the air over and over again.

“Thought this was funny until the transphobia came to play,” one Twitter user responded to Khadi after the funny woman’s Kardashians video hit the web.

Another social media member went on to mention that Don’s image of Khloe Kardashian also came off as being too “aggressive” to be considered female.


In response, Khadi fired back that she was proud of the work she had done in the video.

“Where [exactly] does my video fall under [transphobia]?,” she inquired her Twitter followers.


Earlier this week, another video by Khadi Don centered on the Kardashian family; specifically, Rob Kardashian and his current troubles with model Blac Chyna, was more positively received on social media, as the Inquisitr reported.
