Reality TV star Kim Kardashian once slammed Indian cuisine in an episode of her reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. This lead to an uproar on social media by her Indian fans.
She later issued an apology on her social media accounts.
“In no way was my comment intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste,” she wrote.
“There are a lot of foods I don’t like . . . I hate cilantro and peppers, and there are definitely some Armenian foods that I personally find disgusting, but that doesn’t reflect my opinions on other Armenian people or my culture.”
“My comment wasn’t intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine,” she added.
Recently Kim was trolled for her reply to what extent she would go for maintaining youthful skin.
In an interview with New York Times, while launching her beauty range SKNN by KIM, the KUWTK star said, “If you told me that I literally had to eat poop every single day and I would look younger, I might. I just might.” The comment did not sit well with social media users.
There is no scientific evidence that suggest eating poop helps with the ageing process.
In that same interview, Kim also addressed the backlash surrounding her comments about losing weight for the Met Gala. Many thought it was irresponsible of her to share that she had lost weight for a specific event when she has an impressionable audience.
However, Kim defended her weight loss and said it was no different to how actors shift pounds or gain weight for their roles.
“I didn’t do anything unhealthy. To me, it was like, ‘OK, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role and that is acceptable.’ Even Renée Zellweger gained weight for a role. It’s all the same to me. I wasn’t saying, ‘Hey everyone, why don’t you go lose this weight in a short period of time?'”
