Kim Kardashian: I Hate Indian Food, Not Indian People
Heads up Kanye West: you better stick with Chinese takeout if you're ordering in with Kim Kardashian.
On Sunday night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the reality star, 31, told her family she thinks Indian food is "disgusting."
Her 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," one user wrote.
Said another, "Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called Indian food 'so disgusting.' Seriously? You don't have to like it, [but] don't be rude."
On Tuesday, Kardashian 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."
Explained the E! star, "My comment wasn't intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine."
