Kim Apologizes After Trashing Indian Curry!
It is not often that you hear Kim Kardashian say sorry but that is what she said recently to the Indian people after she termed their food ‘disgusting.’ She prefers ice cream or regular American food but not the Indian food, as was evident during her recent ice cream date with new boyfriend Kanye West.
It was on TV that the reality star commented that she found Indian food like curries ‘disgusting.’ As soon as the show was aired, there was a wave of fury over her ‘slur.’ The viewers of her reality show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” were not at all forgiving.
The viewers wrote all sorts of comments on Twitter like “I think it's good Kim Kardashian doesn't like Indian food, because that means she won't ever visit India and that in itself is a blessing” and “Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called Indian food 'so disgusting.' Seriously? You don't have to like it, but don't be rude.”
Faced with such onslaught, Kim responded, “Just want to clear something up. In NO way was (my comment) intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste.” Then she even went on to explain that there were lots of other foods, which she found not to her taste. She added, “There are a lot of foods I don't like ... I hate cilantro [coriander] and peppers, and there are definitely some Armenian foods that I personally find disgusting, but that doesn't reflect my opinions on other Armenian people or my culture.” Her father, Robert, was a third generation Armenian.
Well, one thing is for sure, Kim’s diet secrets don’t hold any Indian recipe and she cannot be wooed with anything hot, which is what Indian food is.
