    People Are Mad At A "Culturally Offensive" Photo Khloé Kardashian Shared From Cuba

    She posed under a quote from the former dictator of the country, Fidel Castro.

    ICYMI, the Kardashians are currently in Cuba, filming their ~family vaycay~ for Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

    And, true to form, they've been updating their Instagrams with photos from their trip. Khloé in particular seems very excited to be experiencing a new culture.

    However, she's received intense criticism after posting this image of herself beneath a quote from Fidel Castro – the former dictator who has been compared with Hitler.

    Many people are calling the image "disgusting" and "ignorant."

    Others described it as "disrespectful" and "in poor taste."

    Some suggested that Khloé should see the comparison between the Cuban people and Castro with the lack of acknowledgment around the Armenian genocide.

    Bringing awareness to the Armenian genocide was the reason behind Khloé and Kim Kardashian's trip there last summer.

    And others said that the incident was so offensive that they'd no longer follow her.

    It's not the first time Khloé has been accused of cultural insensitivity as well as cultural appropriation.

    However, many of Khloé's fans are speaking out in support of the star, saying that posting the image doesn't equate to support of Castro's policies.

    And others said that the quote was simply a landmark that many Cubans see every day.

    Either way, Khloé's mentions are probably a messy place right now. 😔
