The Kardashians might be having a great time in Cuba, but their Instagram photos are aleady generating a fair bit of controversy.
Khloe, Kim, Kourtney and family friend Malika Haqq are currently living it up in Havana whilst filming for the latest series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And as always, Khloe’s been sharing a string of glamorous pictures on Instagram of their family vaycay…
Between shots of the girl gang puffing on cigars to gorgeous street views showing pink vintage cars and twisted, ornate balconies, Khloe’s been giving her fans a taste of Cuban life.
But one photo in particular has been branded ‘offensive’ and ignorant’, and has left a whole host of Kardashian fans unimpressed over Khloe’s actions.
Khloe shared a shot of herself in a sexy nude dress, a silky grey cover-up, strappy nude sandals and a panama hat standing under a Fidel Castro inscription on a wall in Havana.
The 31-year-old captioned the image: ‘Havana’.
Angry that the star was aligning herself with the infamous dictator, one user commented: ‘Educate yourself Mrs Odom before you take a picture Fidel did and still does a lot of damage to the Cuban people and if you thought this was “cool” I’m sorry but it isn’t it’s disrespectful’.
‘This man has committed mass amounts of human rights abuses, but hey, why not let’s take a picture’, another Twitter user slammed.
‘If you have time, be sure to visit some of Cuba’s world-renowned prisons for political dissenters’, another Twitter user sarcastically commented.
Khloe hasn’t taken the image down, but she did follow up with an Instagram statement of her own which could be viewed as a response to the criticism.
Sharing a scenic shot of Cuba, Khloe wrote: ‘With everyday, my goal is to expand my mind. Now, it has been filled with new memories and knowledge of culture, food, traditions, daily life…. It will never go back to yesterday’s dimensions!’
‘I’m so blessed to be able to appreciate another’s culture God is GREAT! Thank you for my opportunities.’
Hmm. We hope she’s learnt a valuable lesson with this one – when you’re as famous as the Kardashians, you should think very hard before you post.
