Kim Kardashian has caused uproar for dissing Indian food on her US reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
On the show she declared that she finds Indian food “disgusting.”
Indian fans on twitter hit back, ‘I think its good Kim Kardashian doesn’t like Indian food because that means she won’t ever visit India and that in itself is a blessing,” tweeted @krishna_shah.
@jenannelias tweeted: “Kim Kardashian & Kendall Jenner called Indian food ‘so disgusting.’ SERIOUSLY? You don’t have to like it, don’t be rude. #gianteyeroll.”
Kim Kardashian responded with a message on her website which read:
“So on this week’s episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ I said that I thought Indian food was disgusting. In NO way was this intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste.
“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,” she added. “My comment wasn’t intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine.”
