The reality star/entrepreneur and former ‘Apprentice’ contestant,Khloe Kardashian has responded to a report that Donald Trump made rude and offensive comments about her physical appearance and weight while she filmed Celebrity Apprentice.
The Republican nominee’s alleged comments about Khloe came out last Friday.
‘Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?’ a source who worked on Celebrity Apprentice told the Huffington Post.
An editor on the show also made similar claims, saying Trump called Khloe a ‘piglet’ and then asked: ‘What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?’
Both sources said the ‘hot one’ Trump was referring to was Khloe’s older sister, Kim.
Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Khloe said
“I didn’t think he was saying those things about me, “But he says those comments about a lot of women — really derogatory things. Someone who is that simplistic to judge things off of surface is not someone I want running my country.It’s not cool or appropriate for any person, male or female, to judge someone else by their looks,”I find it really cruel. It’s wild.”
“I’m a tough cookie, so something that he said — that’s not gonna bother me,” she said. “Ninety percent of the time, [criticism] doesn’t bother me. I’m not sure why. I think I’m just in my own world. But I believe that’s why [those incidents] happen to me, because I can take it. If that’s what it takes to get even just this little group of people to realize how shady and bad and negative that one person is, I can take it.”
Kardashian has made no secret of the fact that she didn’t enjoy her stint on “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Earlier this year, she told Chelsea Handler that participating on the program wasn’t her decision.
“My mom made me do it,” “I hated every minute of it.”
