Khloe Kardashian is a fan favorite, but she may have lost herself some followers when she used a gay slur during her March 8 “Mix Up w/ Khloe Kardashian Odom” radio show!
Khloe, 27, said the word on her program “Mix Up w/ Khloe Kardashian Odom” on Dallas radio station Mix 102.9. Kardashian family mainstay Scott Disick called in for an interview, and it was fun until Khloe made a VERY inappropriate comment while talking about Scott, 28, and his accessory choices.
“What kind of homo are you?” she asked. “Seriously? That is not what men…a straight man doesn’t carry a Birkin Bag.”
Scott quickly took offense to the statement, retorting, “Listen to me. First of all, you shouldn’t say homo on the radio. It’s not a bad thing to be a homosexual. You’re making it sound like a negative thing. Third I’m not a homosexual. Fourth, I didn’t come out of the closet. It’s a man bag.”
Instead of hanging her head in shame, Khloe then dug herself deeper on the issue, saying, “First of all, let me just tell you: I am the queen of my gay community which I love and adore. And I promote doing the tranny look-alike contest. I am queen bee over here so don’t even try it.”
Scott is definitely right: you shouldn’t say homo on the radio, Khloe. In fact, you shouldn’t say that word at all — it’s offensive and dismissive of the gay community. And for someone to use it in a teasing way is completely inappropriate.
Furthermore, for Khloe to then backtrack and argue that it’s OK for her to use the word just makes things worse. After all, just because you have gay friends doesn’t mean it’s OK for you to sling slurs around!
