Khloe Kardashian Angers Some in Muslim Community Again
What’s up with Khloe Kardashian and the Muslim community? After offending some in the Muslim community with a snarky caption titled “Sheik Pussy,” referencing costumes worn by her and Scott Disick, she is making waves again with an Instagram post captioned, “Habibi Love.”
Khloe is visiting Dubai and has been posting pics of the beautiful underwater suite boasting shark tanks but some are upset over a post showing her wearing a niqab, a head covering worn by Muslim women for religious reasons. Habibi is a a term of endearment, often used for a husband or wife or significant other. Khloe’s on and off again boyfriend French Montana is Muslim though it is not clear if Khloe is traveling with French or even referencing him.
Defenders claim Khloe is paying respect to her boyfriend’s culture, if French is her boyfriend, while others are outraged at Khloe for wearing a niqab as a fashion statement.
Khloe was upset after her Halloween post caused an uproar even addressing it on Keeping Up With the Kardashians asking some of her Muslim staff at Dash if they were offended. She apologized profusely saying:
I’m really upset that I’ve offended anybody. I’m even more bothered that the commenters thing I’m poking fun at their culture. I didn’t realize how offensive it was. I didn’t know I was doing anything wrong. I really just have to be more aware of what I write, even if I think it’s tongue in cheek and I have to be more sensitive to that. I’m sorry to anybody I offended. That was the last thing I ever wanted to do.
The Kardashian family have been well-received in Dubai, with it being a frequent business destination. Sister Kim has traveled there often and brought momager, Kris Jenner. So far no response or apology from Khloe and no word on what officials in Dubai think of her latest selfie snafu.
