I Am Not One Bit Surprised That Khloé Kardashian Is Facing Backlash On Twitter Over Her Emoji Choice

"You're white."

Khloé Kardashian is facing backlash...yet again.

Today's edition started when Khloé tweeted a series of face-palm emojis...

🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

Twitter: @khloekardashian

...that were emoji number 4 — aka the middle of the skin tones.

Emoji number 4 is a woman with brunette hair and a tan/olive skin tone

It didn't take long for people on Twitter to start calling her out for it:

@khloekardashian Bitches get a tan and start changing their emoji skin tone..

@giles_maddi @khloekardashian Don’t be a fucking idiot maddi. These emojis were clearly created for Black people. Black people can be in many shades but most categorize into 3. Light, brown and dark skin. Hence why there’s THREE different emojis for black people.

@khloekardashian Ma’am I don’t know how to tell you this but umm.... you’re white🤭

This isn't even the first emoji-related backlash a Kardashian-Jenner has gotten — Kendall was called out for using an emoji of the same color in 2017.
