Khloe Kardashian Feeling The Heat For 'Racist' Photoshoot

Social media controversies and the Kardashians seem to go hand-in-hand, and a new one has emerged to capture the imagination of random posters. This time, Khloe Kardashian has stepped up the plate, but the controversy doesn’t revolve around anything she said. As Yahoo shares, a controversy has erupted because some observers have construed a recent photo shoot as being racist in nature.

The shoot was done for Khloe’s Good American clothing line, and it features photos of her alongside Slick Woods, a black model.

“In the 'controversial' image, Woods is kneeling beside Khloe and holding onto her knee with the reality star, who is reportedly pregnant with her first child, tenderly touching the back of the model’s head as she looks down at her,” Yahoo shares. “The photo was immediately blasted for portraying a 'master-slave' relationship, with fans commenting on the now-deleted Instagram picture: 'Maybe if Khloe has a different pose and facial expressions it wouldn’t portray the Master and the Slave.'”

Social media erupted soon after the images started making the rounds, and Khloe was dealt a rather large helping of criticism.

“So you got this black woman on her knee while you petting her???” shared one user.

“I kind of feel this picture is degrading and reading posts I’m not the only one,” wrote one commenter.

As Khloe saw it, everything was just fine, and she proudly shared the images on social media.

“This chick right here is crazy, sexy, cool all rolled into one @slickwoods! Slick was so much fun to shoot with! She’s a force to be reckoned with! #GoodSquad #GoodAmerican,” she wrote.

Woods was also targeted by the social media police for her role in the shoot.

“Idk who slick woods is but can she get her black ass up off that floor and at this woman feet. We got enough pics like this,” wrote one user.

“This slick Woods chick went from modeling Fenty clothes & makeup to now bowing down to Khloe Kardashian smh lol,” added another commenter.

This isn’t the only little flap that Khloe has on her plate at the moment either.

“The scandal comes amid reports that Khloe is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, with reports breaking just days after her 20-year-old half-sister, Kylie Jenner, was also said to be pregnant,” Yahoo adds. “None of the famous family have confirmed or denied Khloe or Kylie’s pregnancies, however, it was recently confirmed that their sister, Kim Kardashian, is expecting her third baby with husband Kanye West early next year via surrogate.”

As with all of the various flaps surrounding the Kardashians, this too shall pass. Except for the pregnancy one, since that’s a more permanent thing. On the photo shoot, we’ll assume that it was vetted through the proper channels before being released for public consumption, but we would expect Khloe and company to take the feedback to heart and open their eyes a bit more. As for the pregnancy, we’ll have to wait and see if the rumors prove to be true.
