Former Playboy bunny-turned-reality star Kendra Wilkinson Baskett is under fire for a ridiculously tone deaf post she shared on social media.
Per TMZ.com, the reality star and her hubby, former NFL star Hank Baskett, were in the midst of a road trip in Texas when Kendra stopped, entered an empty field, picked a bulb of cotton and took to social media beaming over her discovery.
While she made jokes about possibly being arrested for trespassing on private property, Kendra was apparently unsuspecting of any fall out from her insensitive gesture. She quickly took to social media standing by her decision and even left a nasty response for people who weren’t here for it.
Lol. I just wanted to pick cotton from a plant cuz I’ve always wondered how it really felt. Never in my life thought of color or race at the time.— Kendra Wilkinson (@KendraWilkinson) November 22, 2017
I was trespassing n ran up to grab some cotton. I am not racist. Was just having fun n wanted to feel n wondered how it felt. Hahahahah— Kendra Wilkinson (@KendraWilkinson) November 22, 2017
I can’t believe I’m getting accused of being racist when I’m sitting here with my black father in law rt now baffled at the accusations— Kendra Wilkinson (@KendraWilkinson) November 22, 2017
Fuck off to anyone who don’t know me n know what I’m about. Just cuz i picked some fucking cotton. It’s a fucking plant. Omg i can’t— Kendra Wilkinson (@KendraWilkinson) November 22, 2017
Despite Baskett’s feisty Twitter sesh, reps for the reality starlet told TMZ.com that the wife and mother of two Black children “didn’t intend to offend” anyone and shot down rumors of her being racist because her hubby is African-American.
