Kendra Wilkinson Picks Cotton, Gets Accused of Racism
Kendra Wilkinson is the outspoken star of We TV’s Kendra on Top.
We say outspoken because, well, she has no filter. Whether she’s posting a sultry selfie on social media, or just appearing on her reality TV show, she’s always stirring up some sort of controversy.
We’re not even sure she knows she’s doing it, and that’s likely why she’s such a draw with viewers.
The 32-year-old was on a road trip with her husband, Hank Bassett, and thought it would be fun to stop by a cotton field in Texas because “she always wanted to pick cotton.”
Have a look at the picture in question below. It shows Wilkinson posing with some cotton and a whole field of cotton behind her.
People took offense to the post and immediately started slamming the star in the comments section of the snap.
“Racist piece of s–t,” one user wrote. Added another: “People are upset because you are joking about history that you are just simply ignorant about. Some things just keep to yourself.”
While some chose to go on the offensive, the star’s legion of fans also came to her defense.
“Been watching Kendra from day one, she’s a free spirit,” one fan commented. “You are just combing through social media praying for anything to pound on and rip it to shreds… Hello her husband and children are part black.”
“Don’t give the haters the benefit of explaining what ur doing like picking cotton,” said another.
One final fan wanted the haters to disappear: “Keep your head up. Ignore the ignorance. I have always liked you and your real fans know you are not a racist and you love everyone equally. Live! Laugh! Love!”
The hatred did not go unnoticed by Kendra who returned to social media to clap back at the people assassinating her character.
“Lol. I just wanted to pick cotton from a plant cuz I’ve always wondered how it really felt. Never in my life thought of color or race at the time,” she wrote on Wednesday.
“I was trespassing n ran up to grab some cotton. I am not racist. Was just having fun n wanted to feel n wondered how it felt. Hahahahah. I can’t believe I’m getting accused of being racist when I’m sitting here with my black father in law rt now baffled at the accusations.
“F–k off to anyone who don’t know me n know what I’m about. Just cuz I picked some f–king cotton. It’s a f–king plant. Omg I can’t.”
Like we said, Kendra is not afraid to hit back at people throwing shade her way. The star was very likely on the trip why she recovered from a mysterious hospital visit. And, no, it had nothing to do with handjobs this time around … we hope.
The star has been acting in Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man, and disaster struck when some of the shows had to be canceled after she found herself in hospital.
“Super sick. Going to have to cancel the late show tonight. My heart couldn’t cancel both. Sorry late show,” she said at the time.
“Sooooo sorry guys gotta cancel both shows tonight. Going to ER. Hurtin bad. I’ll make it up to you.”
What do you think about all of this?!
