Khloé Kardashian Gets DRAGGED On Twitter After Suggesting We Should All ‘Love Thy Racist Neighbor’
Sigh. Someone really needs to take Khloé Kardashian‘s phone away from her!
It’s no secret that the Good American founder has been going through some tough times lately.
And though she’s been working hard to remain positive, and lean on her friends and family after her ex Tristan Thompson‘s latest alleged tryst ruined her life, it has no doubt been difficult for Khloé to process it all and move forward.
Our hearts do go out to the KUWTK star, and we are happy to hear that she is actively taking steps to prioritize her 11-month-old daughter, True, and her mental health.
The momma of one’s go-to method of self-care lately has been posting indirect, cryptic quotes about “positivity” and moving on from the past, like the ones she shared to her Instagram Story on Tuesday (below):
We couldn’t agree more, girl!
But over the weekend, the 34-year-old shared a quote that didn’t exactly strike the right chord with her millions of followers.
Khloé posted a photo of a slogan T-shirt encouraging people to “love thy neighbor”, with her own added caption that read, “Love is the only cure.” See it for yourself (below):
We’re sorry, wait a second, huh?!
Many couldn’t help but notice one line that calls us to love “thy racist neighbor.”
Most of Twitter was incredulous that Khlo would even suggest anything remotely kind towards racists:
i KNOW khloe kardashian didn’t just tell me to love my homeless neighbor and my racist neighbor all in one post…this year forreal ain’t her year huh pic.twitter.com/cf22src8ZT

Khloe Kardashian: appropriates black culture to the fullest extent and her and her sisters (ex. Kourtney) reinforce the systemic oppression of minority groups
Also Khloe Kardashian : disregards racism towards minorities by saying shit like “love thy racist neighbor” 😌✨🤞🏻

And many users (below) tactfully pointed out the fact that her decree to love our neighbor, specifically our racist neighbor, is an especially tone-deaf request. Ya know, seeing as her daughter True Thompson is black.
Imagine having a black daughter and saying “love thy racist neighbour”, what (and I can’t stress this enough) the fuck https://t.co/Wr6Kg68G7x

As we mentioned before, we truly do feel for Miz Kardashian, and are empathetic of all she’s been through.
And we totally get the whole “spread love, forgive your enemies” and “love your neighbor” concept in theory here.
But this isn’t the first time any of the Kardashians have failed to be more sensitive when it comes to discussions of race, despite being called out and apologizing multiple times for it.
Might we suggest getting off of social media for just a little while longer while you figure out your feelings, Khloé? These cryptic quotes are doing you more harm than good, girl!
What do you guys think of her “love thy neighbor” post? Is it worth the outrage, or are we all being too sensitive here?
