This is part 2 of a throw-back of all the controversies we’ve been through with KarJenners.
Rob and Blac Chyna’s Relationship
Kardashian-Jenner fans were sҺ.ockҽd to learn of Rob Kardashian’s relationship with Blac Chyna. Seriously, we’re not over it yet. In 2016, the model posted a photo of herself with a tattooed arm, and it was soon гҽvҽαlҽd that the couple was engaged and expecting a child.
Of course, Blac Chyna was already acquainted with the Kardashians. She was friends with Kim before her ex and baby daddy Tyga began dating her youngest sibling Kylie.
Kylie’s Blackface Controversy
As previously stated, the Kardashian-Jenners are particularly bad at being culturally insensitive. These women simply want to do what they want to do, and they don’t seem to notice when others are upset or offended by their choices.
Kylie was hit with accusations of blackface when she posted these heavily altered images of herself in 2015, captioned with, “What I wish I looked like all the time.”
Lamar Odom Cheats on Khloé
Khloé Kardashian and NBA player Lamar Odom had a whirlwind romance that left the reality star in a world of hurt. Within a month of meeting, the couple married and landed their own spin-off, Khloé and Lamar. Khloé kept her feelings about the couple’s problems to herself.
Fans eventually discovered that Odom had cheated on Kardashian several times. When he collapsed in Nevada, Khloé postponed their divorce so she could make medical decisions for him and care for him.
Kanye’s TMZ Breakdown
While he is no longer an official member of the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kanye West caused quite a stir during his time with them. During what appeared to be a public breakdown in 2020, the rapper began ranting about sensitive political subjects in the TMZ offices.
This led to a TMZ staffer standing up to debate West, which resulted in a viral video. During the aftermath of this episode, Kanye West called his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, “Kris Jon Un.”
The End of Kris and Caitlyn
Kris and Caitlyn Jenner officially divorced in 2013 after 23 years of marriage. They appeared to be on good terms at the time, despite the fact that viewers had been watching their marriage disintegrate for years on KUWTK.
Following Caitlyn Jenner’s public transition in 2015, the Kardashians publicly supported their step-parent. Things were over when Caitlyn started speaking negatively about Kris. The pair has been photographed together several times, but their friendship is clearly over.
Kim’s Marriage to Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian is best known for her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. The couple met in 2010, and their relationship became official in 2011. Despite the fact that Kim’s family and fans could tell this wasn’t a perfect match, the reality star went ahead with an extravagant televised wedding that same year.
Just two months after they said “I do,” fans watched as Kim broke down on the family’s flagship reality show. The ensuing divorce lasted longer than the marriage.
Kylie Jenner shocked fans in 2021 when she announced a GoFundMe fundraiser for her former makeup artist. People thought it was scandalous for Kylie to ask anyone for money for anything, given her enormous personal wealth. Why didn’t she just give the money to her friend?
Kylie eventually clarified that she had donated $5,000 to help the fund reach its $10,000 goal. The actress claimed she shared the link to raise awareness and funds.
Kim’s Blackface Controversy
We’ve already discussed Kylie Jenner’s blackface scandal, so let’s move on to Kim’s. When the celebrity shared a series of promotional images for KKW Beauty in 2017, fans noticed that her skin was unusually dark. Kim was thus accused of blackfishing.
“I would obviously never want to offend anyone,” Kim responded. I was very tanned when we shot the images, so the contrast may have been off […] That was not brought to our attention. Nobody brought it up.”
Kanye’s Campaign Speech
Kanye West has long expressed interest in running for President of the United States, and in 2020, he made that dream a reality. Unfortunately (or fortunately), Kanye did not organize a formal political campaign, but he did stand up and say some extremely controversial things.
Kanye revealed during his campaign speech in South Carolina that he and Kim had considered not having their first child, North. As a result, Kim was furious that Kanye had discussed such private matters in public.
Kendall’s Pepsi Commercial
Here’s a major Kardashian-Jenner scandal. Kendall Jenner starred in a particularly tone-deaf Pepsi commercial in 2017, as the world grappled with the Black Lives Matter movement. Jenner calms a protestor-police clash in the commercial by handing an officer a can of Pepsi.
It was basically implying that Kendall could cure racism with a Pepsi. People felt that the commercial trivialized serious issues, so Pepsi eventually pulled the commercial and apologized.
Kylie’s Billionaire Status
The world was shocked when Forbes magazine declared Kylie Jenner to be the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. To begin with, people were offended by the notion that Kylie is “self-made,” despite the fact that she has been on a reality show since she was 10 years old.
That’s the sort of platform most people never get. On top of that, Forbes later retracted their claim, saying that the Kardashians-Jenners had gone to “unusual lengths” to present Kylie as richer than she was.
Kim’s Kimono Line
Kim Kardashian’s shapewear line Skims was known as Kimono before it became Skims. That’s right, Kimmy tried to name her new company after Japan’s national garment, and it didn’t go so well. In fact, the scandal sparked such outrage that the mayor of Kyoto wrote to the star, requesting that she change her trademark.
It turns out that choosing words that sound similar to your own name is not the best business strategy. Kim eventually changed her name to Skims due to public pressure.
Scott’s Picture of Penelope
Oh no, no, no. This rash snap was a bad idea for a family that is frequently accused of cultural appropriation and blackfishing. Holding your eyes open to appear to be a different racial group is also a bad idea in general.
Scott Disick shared this photo of himself and Penelope at a Japanese restaurant in 2019. Naturally, angry onlookers argued that Scott should have explained to his daughter that imitating another race is not respectful.
Kendall’s Proactiv Announcement
Kendall Jenner’s Proactiv announcement made us laugh because Kris Jenner made the situation far worse than it should have been. Kendall’s momager tweeted in 2019 that she would be sharing her “most raw story” ever that night.
Given the amount of speculation surrounding Kendall’s romantic preferences, fans were expecting a major revelation. Kendall’s most candid story, however, was that she has bad skin and would now be hawking Proactiv products. On top of that, most people didn’t believe the celebrity actually wore the brand.
