Khloé Kardashian Receives Major Backlash Over 'Insensitive' Tweet On 9/11

Twitter is criticizing the reality star for her poor timing.

Published September 13, 2019

Khloé Kardashian is catching some major heat for a tweet she posted on the 18th anniversary of the horrific September 11 terrorist attacks that changed the United States forever.

The reality star, on the day many were remembering the victims and their families, took to Twitter to alert her 27.4 million followers that she was "Proud to be Armenian."

Fans of the reality star and her siblings Kim and Kourtney would know that they have roots in Armenia that they are rightfully proud of. However, some are calling Khloé out for expressing that pride on a day of mourning for America.

  1. Her tweet, which is still live on her account, was met with tons of backlash from her followers who feel that expressing pride for any other country or nationality besides American on 9/11 is a deliberate slight.

    See their reactions, below:

  2. There is no evidence to suggest that the reality star's tweet was political, or anti-American, in any way.
