American reality TV star Khloe Kardashian is back in the news again and this time for poking fun at the ultra-right wing group Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a picture of herself with her sisters Kim and Kourtney on her Instagram account.
The text below the picture read, "The only KKK to ever let black men in." She was referring to the Kardashian clan as all their names start with the letter 'K'.
But her joke has been widely criticised for being distasteful.

The Instagram meme went viral immediately after Khloe posted it.
More so, due to the recent headlines made by the Ku Klux Klan (known notoriously for their racist violence) when they invited Jews, black people, gays and people of Hispanic origin people to join them.
Abarr, a former white supremacist, claims that the latest move was aimed at giving the KKK a makeover in the society.
The Kardashian sister's internet meme about the KKK controversy got 405,000 likes and 26,000 comments within two hours but was soon criticised after which it was deleted from her Instagram page.
Here are some reactions to the infamous Ku Klux Klan meme posted by the reality TV star.

I don't like any of the Kardashians at all lol but I will defend Khloe for posting that KKK meme. It's not racist. It's clever & funny.

If you're a white woman (ahem Khloe) who's dated or married a black man, one would assume you'd get why a KKK joke isn't even remotely funny — Derrick Clifton (@DerrickClifton) November 12, 2014
