Khloe Kardashian has angered fans, by posting a meme of herself and her sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, which features a reference to the KKK.
The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star posted the pic - which contains the words “The only KKK to ever let black men in” - on Instagram, but it wasn’t long before outraged fans began commenting.
Khloe later removed the snap, however, by then many fans had already taken a screengrab of the picture.
Hundreds of fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the snap, with many stating Khloe should apologise, while others have raised the question of whether the post is racist.
“I'm sorry but @khloekardashian is dumb for that KKK comment. That's not funny and I'm a fan!!!,” writes one Twitter user, while another adds: “Khloe Kardashian posting "the only KKK to ever let black men in" joke is wild tasteless.”

However a handful of users think people are overreacting:

Khloe’s controversial post has (almost) stolen the limelight from her sister Kim, who revealed the results of her latest naked photoshoot earlier today.
While Khloe is facing serious criticism, many fans have made light of Kim’s nude shoot, creating memes featuring her mag cover.
