People Are Not Happy with Khloe Kardashian's KKK Joke

It seems Kim Kardashian isn't the only Kardashian who's breaking the internet this week - though seriously people, why are you surprised at her baring all in that spread for Paper Magazine? Do you not remember how she became famous to begin with?

Khloe Kardashian has caused quite a stir herself - though admittedly nowhere near as big as her sister (pun intended) - with a photo she posted to Instagram (see above) which depicts her, Kim, and sister Kourtney all dressed in white, accompanied by a caption that reads "The only KKK to ever let black men in."

Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick also posted the Klu Klux Klan-referring pic onto Instagram.

As I'm sure you all know, Khloe was married to African American basketball player Lamar Odom for four years, before they got divorced last year. She's currently off-and-on dating French Montana.

And Kim, of course, is married to his Highness Yeezus West - also known as Kanye.

Many haven't found the joke funny, however, with thousands taking to Instagram and Twitter to condemn her offensive joke.

Hours after she posted it, Khloe deleted it from her Instagram. Meanwhile, "Lord Disick's" post remains online, and has garnered nearly half a million likes thus far.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news Scott and Khloe, but your timing couldn't have been worse. Had you read the news just this week, you would have learned that there's actually a Montana-based KKK chapter that is opening up, one that is all inclusive, meaning they let in everybody, whether blacks, Jews, gays, you name it.

According to that chapter's leader, "white supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan."

Gosh, Khloe and Scott. Get with the times.
