People Called Khloé Kardashian’s Pregnancy Rumor Tweets ‘Too Dramatic’
How much privacy should famous people expect? What’s the appropriate way to react to trolls? How much sympathy does Khloe herself deserve? Fans fell on different sides of these issues after Khloe’s rant.
Khloé Kardashian was reacting to pregnancy rumors
Recent rumors that Khloe is pregnant with Tristan Thompson’s baby have apparently gotten under her skin. The reality TV star tweeted three times on May 13th in reaction to the speculation. She never addressed the rumors directly. Instead she called out haters who have been bashing her and her supposed pregnancy.
Khloe says she’s “disgusted” by the “sick and hurtful things people say.” She asserted that it’s her life to live the way she wants, and people should focus on their own families, instead of bringing more negativity into the world.
Nowhere in this rant did Khloe say the rumors were untrue. In fact, she almost seemed to be justifying any potential pregnancy. By telling the public to butt out of her business, she is setting the stage for an announcement that fans are not going to like.
Thompson cheated on Khloe while she was heavily pregnant with their first child. Fans have been horrified at her “jokes” that she’ll use Thompson’s sperm for her second child. He was a terrible partner, and although he seems like a good father to True, he has at least one other child who he is less involved with. In fact, fans have speculated in the past that Thompson is only involved in True’s life to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Fans are split on how they feel about Khloé Kardashian’s reaction
Fans had completely polar opposite reactions to Kardashian’s tweets. Some fans on Reddit point out that she’s eager to give her opinion, however negative, on other people’s relationships. They claim that her now asking other people to mind their own business is hypocritical.
They think she’s being overly dramatic, and that she signed up for the attention when she willingly became a public figure.
Other fans think the exact opposite. They think the trolls who bashed Khloe were way out of line, and some of the comments were downright inappropriate.
Even though Kardashian is a reality TV star, they think she still deserves some level of privacy. After all, she decides what parts of her life are filmed for the show. So there are clearly things she wants to keep to herself.
Her defenders point out that she’s only human, and she’s allowed to have a bad day and complain about it on Twitter, just like everyone else.
Khloé Kardashian’s life as a reality TV star
It’s true that Kardashian is a reality TV star. While other celebrities have their privacy invaded because they play characters on TV, she plays herself. The show is her real life.
In her tweets, she complained that “people swear they know everything about me.”
In fact, she’s the reason people swear that. She’s sold herself as a commodity. The rest of her twitter feed is mostly filled with advertisements for her clothing line. She’s benefiting financially from the influence she has over her fans. That influence is dependent on people thinking they know everything about her.
Fans can’t agree on whether or not that means she deserves to be attacked for pregnancy rumors. One thing is certain, though. Kardashian did not deny any rumors, at least not in the tweets.
She’s a careful person, especially on social media. It may be that she’s seriously contemplating another baby with Thompson, and doesn’t want to look like a hypocrite later.
