Khloe Kardashian made things right for a fan after taking a bit of heat for what was perceived as a negative comment on Twitter. Quickly realizing the error, Kardashian sent the fan free clothing to make up for it.
Kardashian faced backlash after her seemingly rude comment
Kardashian has been known to reply to her fans, but one of her responses to a follower who planned to work extra hard to afford a pair of Kardashian’s Good American jeans didn’t go over well with her fanbase.
A fan named Kaelynn tweeted: “So I realized I have to work 20 hours in order to afford @khloekardashian jeans… and I’m in love with them… catch me picking up extra shifts.”
Kardashian responded: “Awwwwww this is so cute!!!! I’m so happy you enjoy them.”
People weren’t happy about the
tone deaf reply
Fans went off on Kardashian, with one person pointing out: “not to sound like a hater but this actually upsets me!! someone had to work a stupid amount of hours to afford ONE pair of jeans. A millionaire thinks it’s ‘cute’ that ppl have to calculate & think how many hours they have to work to afford little things.”
Another person noted: “Fan: I had to work 85 hours this week and take out a second mortgage on my house in order to afford a single pant leg from your new Jean collection. Khloe Kardashian: omg
Others offered suggestions for fixing the situation
Many people thought Kardashian should help the fan out, especially after making her lame comment.
One person shared: “Khloe I think its nice she likes your jeans but picking up extra shifts to be able to afford them isnt cute. You should send her a whole box for even wanting to do that.”
Kardashian took the hint and stepped things up to right her wrong. Kaelynn happily tweeted that she received a whole box of free clothing from Kardashian and showed off all the goodies she received, even snapping some photos of her in the Kardashian clothing line.
She tweeted: “I still can’t believe my tweet got so much attention. I have adored @khloekardashian for so long and am so thankful she took the time out of her day to send me some AMAZING clothes. I never once took her tweet to be anything other than positive. My bulletin board says it all!!”
Kardashian apologized for the misstep
Kardashian commented on Kaelynn’s happy tweet, writing: “I am so happy you received your Good American goodies!!! Keep working hard and being such a positive soul.”
She explained herself in another tweet, writing: “Sadly, the negative things spread like wild fire. I was so honored this young woman spent her hard earned money on GA, I was sending her GA out of pure gratitude/appreciation as soon as I saw her tweet. I was surprising her. Never did I think my tweet would be taken so negatively.”
Kardashian followed it up by explaining her “rough month,” writing: “I know Ive been distant. A rough month for me emotionally. But I never want you to think for second that I don’t love/appreciate you. All of you! I try to come on when I can cuz one of my favorite things to do is have sweet tweet chats. But at times it’s been toxic 4me. Balance.”
