Khloé Kardashian Is Being Criticised For Her Response To A Fan Working Extra Hours To Afford A Pair Of Jeans

*Inserts Paris Hilton's "stop being poor" meme*

It's probably an understatement to say that Khloé Kardashian isn't exactly having the best time on social media right now.

She recently came under fire for sharing an "inspirational" quote on Instagram that said "love thy racist neighbor".

I guess you could say, based on this tweet, which has more than 135,000 likes, that people weren't very happy.

Imagine having a black daughter and saying “love thy racist neighbour”, what (and I can’t stress this enough) the fuck https://t.co/Wr6Kg68G7x

But although all that drama has died down, people have started dragging Khloé again. What for this time?

The Wendy Williams Show

It all started when a fan tweeted saying they would have to pick up extra shifts in order to afford a pair of Khloé's Good American jeans.

So I realized I have to work 20 hours in order to afford @khloekardashian jeans...and I’m in love with them...catch me picking up extra shifts.

Khloé saw the tweet and responded, calling it "cute".

@K_Abner_ Awwwwww this is so cute!!!! I’m so happy you enjoy them

And that's where the dragging started. People immediately responded to her tweet, accusing her of being "tone deaf".

@zoesnxder @khloekardashian @K_Abner_ Sick. She doesn’t even realize how tone deaf this is bc she’s been rich her whole life lol. “Being poor is so cute! lol”

@khloekardashian @K_Abner_ It's cute that she has to work 20 hrs to afford 1 pair of jeans??? Yikes 😞

Suddenly, tweets with thousands of likes were springing up all over the shop.

@khloekardashian @K_Abner_ If this tweet was a picture:

@khloekardashian @K_Abner_ She really said damn that’s crazy

People just couldn't believe it.

i *can’t* get over khloe kardashian saying awwwww this is so cute to a girl saying she has to work 20 hours to afford a pair of her jeans

Can't stop thinking about Khloe Kardashian saying "awww that's so cute!!!!!!!!!" To a girl saying she has to slave away for hours to afford one pair of her jeans

And, of course, the whole thing soon became a meme.

Fan: I had to work 85 hours this week and take out a second mortgage on my house in order to afford a single pant leg from your new Jean collection Khloe Kardashian: omg awwww aren't you just the cutest ❤❤! Enjoy them queen!❤

Khloe I love your jeans I had to donate my kidney to afford them Khloe: aweeeeeeee 🥰🙏🏽

However, other people were quick to defend Khloé, with some claiming that she did nothing wrong.

@MarisaMyers16 @khloekardashian @K_Abner_ It’s funny how picking up extra shifts and earning your money, because things in life aren’t free, can be used against you these days.

Imo Khloe was clearly advertising. Trying to acknowledge someone to show the world that her jeans are appreciated. She did nothing wrong
