Kim Kardashian has told her family that she thinks Indian food is “disgusting”. The 31-year-old socialite said this on Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The reality star’s offhanded remark drew criticism throughout the Twittersphere.
“I think it’s good Kim Kardashian doesn’t like Indian food, because that means she won’t ever visit India and that in itself is a blessing,” Us magazine quoted one user as writing.
“Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called Indian food ‘so disgusting.’ Seriously? You don’t have to like it, but don’t be rude,” another user said.
On Tuesday, she took to her blog to address the backlash in a post titled “Just Want to Clear Something Up.”
“In NO way was my comment intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste,” she wrote.
“There are a lot of foods I don’t like . . . I hate cilantro and peppers, and there are definitely some Armenian foods that I personally find disgusting, but that doesn’t reflect my opinions on other Armenian people or my culture.
“My comment wasn’t intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine,” she added.
