Khloe Kardashian’s daughter subjected to colourism by trolls

TARGETED: Khloe Kardashian is yet to publicly respond to the negative comments

KHLOE KARDASHIAN’S daughter has been subjected to colourism by social media users.

True, who is the reality TV star’s first and only child, has been the target of negative comments in relation to her skin tone. She is five months old.

The comments were posted underneath an image of three members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan – Chicago West, True Thompson and Stormi Webster, published on Kim Kardashian’s Instagram account last Friday.

One said: “There is nothing special in having dark skin and looking like a monkey.”

Another said: “I hate that True is so dark, the other two are a nice mix… she’s a cute kid, just too dark.”

A number of commenters came to True’s defence.

One wrote: “Baby True is me as a baby, gorgeous sitting among her equally beautiful little cousins.”

Another wrote: “Can’t believe some of y’all be hating on baby True on such an early age. Grow up people, get a life. Remember that True is living her best life while y’all hating on her. We love you True.”

It’s not the first time True has been the target of online trolls.

In other posts on Khloe’s Instagram page, online commenters have also made negative comments about her skin colour, prompting fans to question why adults would seek to bully a baby and point out how sad it is that she is already facing colourism at such a young age.

One Twitter, one user said: “I hope and pray and hope and pray that Khloe is equipping herself to speak to True about colourism in a meaningful way.”

Neither Khloe nor Kim have responded to the comments publicly.
