The 29-year-old posed in a traditional Native American headdress during a “Kidchella” first birthday soiree for sister Kim’s daughter North, and promptly posted the pic to Instagram on June 20.
“Ray of clouds. Chirping of birds. Gurgling of water. Granting desire. One with water,” she captioned her photo.
Fans, however, didn’t feel quite as serene when they saw the snap.
“Just a little rude and disrespectful!!!” posted one Instagram follower. “Headdresses are for a ceremonial purpose and NOT A COSTUME!!!”
“I am Native American . . . a head dress is not a toy…it’s a meaning of honor to the ones who have fought in war!” explained another. “It’s not a[n] accessory!!”
“Oh, Khloe. You should know better,” another stated simply.
‘I am genuinely sorry,’ the musician, 41, told Buzzfeed. ‘I respect and honor every kind of race, background and culture.”
Should Khloe apologize and take down the offending photo? Sound off in the comments.
