The Kardashians Just Dragged Blac Chyna for Claiming Racism Was the Reason ‘Rob & Chyna’ Got Canceled
It’s no secret that there is no love lost between the KarJenners and reality star, Blac Chyna. The Kardashians’ relationship with Chyna began when Kim Kardashian West befriended the Instagram model. At the time, Chyna was dating rapper Tyga with whom she shares a young son, King Cairo. However, just before Kardashian West’s sister, Kylie Jenner turned 18, she and Tyga began seeing one another. None of the KarJenners stood of for Chyna, nor did they feel this was inappropriate.
Chyna however, found her own way to stay in the KarJenner’s orbit. She began dating Rob Kardashian and the pair were even engaged at one point. Unfortunately, their tumultuous and seemingly toxic relationship crashed and burned in public and on their reality series, Rob & Chyna. However, they do share an adorable little girl, Dream Kardashian, together.
Still, that hasn’t stopped Chyna’s animosity toward the Keeping Up with the Kardashians starlets, she just claimed that the reason, Rob & Chyna was canceled was due to racism.
‘Rob & Chyna’ only aired for one season
Back in September 2016, Rob Kardashian returned to reality TV after a long hiatus with his new love, Blac Chyna. The reality series was a short-lived seven-episode and showcased a pregnant Chyna and Kardashian as they tried to hold their relationship together.
Unfortunately, the series was not met with good reviews. The Guardian called it “painfully dull” and “astoundingly depressing.” Meanwhile, The Washington Post called it too similar to KUWTK. “Aside from a comic book-esque visual effect that was used to transition scenes […], Rob & Chyna is very much like the show that made the Kardashian family a household name,” they reported.
By mid-December, Chyna and Kardashian’s relationship was on the fritz and the show came to a screeching halt once the USC alum got caught in a case of revenge porn after he angrily shared nude photos of Chyna on the internet.
Blac Chyna has accused the Kardashians of racism
Amid the Black Lives Matter movement and current protests following the murder of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man at the hands of the police, there is a ton of discussion about race and racism in this country.
Now, Chyna has chimed in regarding the cancellation of Rob & Chyna after just one season. According to new court documents, Chyna is accusing NBCUniversal and the Kardashian/Jenner family of racism.
This comes on the heels of actress Gabrielle Union’s filing a discrimination complaint against the network and Simon Cowell’s production company.
The Kardashians are clapping back at Blac Chyna’s racism claims
The KarJenners are not taking Chyna’s accusations laying down. They’ve just clapped back though their lawyer Marty Singer. “This is a 2-year-old lawsuit in which Chyna has changed her defense more times than we can count,” Singer said. “Sadly, unsurpising to anyone, she has stooped to a new low, changing her defense to try to leverage the emotions and pain of the moment, insulting the pain and suffering of real victims of racial injustice and systemic racism.” The powerhouse attorney added, “We take these allegations very seriously and once again, there is no Rob & Chyna show if there is no Rob & Chyna.” Chyna has not named E! or NBCUniversal in her lawsuit.
