The famous-for-being-famous Khloe Kardashian is facing a bit of controversy over a resurfaced photo from Halloween of 2003 in which she is depicted as a pimp with four scantily-clad black women in tow via leashes around their necks.
The photo was taken at Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood, California when the youngest of the Kardashian sisters was 19. According to the Independent, the women pictured alongside Kardashian are actor Megan Good, her sister, La’Myia Good, and two of Kardashian’s close friends, twins Malika and Khadijah Haqq.
Megan Good, for her part, commented lightheartedly on the photo in 2019:
“That one time on Halloween when you were young and dumb. And clearly didn’t think 15 years ahead lol smh. Welp, mistakes were made,” she said.
For some reason, for Halloween in 2003, Khloe Kardashian thought it was a good idea to dress as a “pimp” and haul four Black women around with her attached to chain leashes. pic.twitter.com/grcdgNqwNB

Many users on the reddit subgroup r/KUWTKsnark, which is devoted to all things Kardashian, were simply dumbfounded by the difference in Khloe Kardashian’s appearance and had difficulty recognizing her, jokingly identifying her as possibly anyone from Pink to Lisa Marie Presley.
“I didn’t even realize this was in this sub for a minute because you can’t even tell this is Khloe unless you try really hard to … maybe she completely redid her face so no one could tell this is her lmao,” said one follower.
WOW!!! Aside from how tragic this is, she’s not even the same face…not even remotely.

Most, however, were simply confounded by the irreverent theme of the tableau.
“Omg i- why hasn’t she been “cancelled” for this like Rachel … like what the F*** is this and why is it ok?!?! I f***ing hate these people,” one user said.
Another user asked, “Whose brilliant idea was this?”
Another more loquacious user wrote, “The reality that five women collectively thought this was a good idea, not one of them said maybe we should rethink this,” to which another person responded, “This is the part I [don’t] get. Asking to walk [your] friend like a dog is one thing, but then four [people] being ok with being walked like a dog??? how??”
One user echoed a similar sentiment, saying, “Seriously every time I see this pic I’m like, who thought this was a good idea?!!! Just whyyyy.”
“Can someone fill me in on this mess? Khloe, dressed…as a pimp?” one user asked.
“This picture comes up so often and I’m shook every single time. The fact that EVERYONE thought this was a good idea is wild,” another wrote.
A third person added, “This is actually one of the worst things I’ve ever seen a celebrity do.”
The entire family is nothing but trash

The woke can do whatever they please. Use the N-word in every sentence, etc. You all know the drill. Sad!

At least one compared the photo to actor Ted Danson’s infamous appearance at the Friars Club roast of Whoopi Goldberg in 1993. If you can believe it, Danson and Goldberg were a romantic item at the time, and Danson showed up in blackface and used the N-word repeatedly during the roast.
Recalled the user, “O.M.G. this is on par with blackface Whoopi’s then boyfriend Ted Danson did ‘as comedy sketch’ or whatever. I thank God I never done something so cringe to this extent, how do you cope with this when you look back.”
Another wondered why the youngest Kardashian had yet to face any consequences and pointed to the hypocritical example of Bachelor Nation’s Rachael Kirkconnell after she was seen in photos attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018 for which she then had to bend the knee and apologize to appease the venomous liberals of the American Left.
But alas, the Kardashian pimp controversy will likely be short-lived, as some folks with the preferred politics have immunity from career-ending backlash. Simply look at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his foray into blackface during his troubled youth at age 30.
A new photo of Trudeau in blackface has leaked.
