Khloe Kardashian: I Still Love My Loser Brother Rob!
Khloe Kardashian took a moment during her own motherhood journey with baby True to give a shoutout to her own incredible mom, Kris Jenner.
But when Khloe didn’t go out of her way to mention her brother in the post, some Rob fans (they exist) were outraged.
Did Khloe forget that her brother exists?
Khloe made a sweet post on Instagram about how great her momager is, only for fans to point out that she neglected to mention her brother.
“It’s a shame,” one fan lamented. “Rob Kardashian is a member of the family and he is never mentioned!”
“My brother is my entire world!” Khloe asserts.
That might be a bit much. She’s a mother. Surely True, if anyone, is her entire world.
“He is definitely a king,” Khloe claims. “It is a shame that you can’t respect us for respecting his privacy.”
“You should not comment if you truly aren’t informed on our family,” Khloe then declares.
Apparently you need to pass a Kardashian trivia quiz if you want to interact with them on social media. That’s wild.
“Don’t forget about Rob… she’s raising a king too,” another follower commented.
“Of course!” Khloe agrees. “He has always been a king since the minute he was born!”
Surely, if anything, he’d be a prince at birth.
“My mom and my dad did an amazing job with him!!” Khloe raves.
Khloe concludes: “He is my [red heart emoji].”
All of this fuss from fans came after Khloe posted a sweet tribute to her extraordinary mother, Kris Jenner, over the weekend.
“You are a Queen who has raised multiple mini Queens still trying to be as strong and fabulous as you are!” Khloe announced.
Trying to be as strong and fabulous as Kris is a lofty goal.
Khloe then vowed: “I will love you more and more every day until the end of time.”
That’s a sweet and innocuous post.
We’re not sure why so many people felt a need to cry out in fright that Khloe had somehow forgotten her brother’s existence.
Can we, as a society, maybe dial back the king-and-queen labels?
We know that the Kardashians are American royalty and all that, but hearing Rob called a “king” unironically is a lot to swallow.
(And I say that as someone who once dreamt that Kris Jenner was a literal monarch in a fantasy setting, folks)
Fun words enter the zeitgeist only to get overused.
Sometimes it happens suddenly — like when Katy Perry said “wig, I hear that,” on American Idol, to the horror of the world.
Other times, the public just uses a word to death until it loses any meaning or fun.
If we’re calling Rob Kardashian a “king,” then the word has become totally disconnected from its original denotation.
Rob has had some serious struggles with his mental health and, as a direct consequence, he has struggled with his weight.
Those two factors combined to give him financial struggles.
It takes a lot out of a person to appear on reality television and to launch business ventures on the level that Rob’s sisters have.
A lot of people gave him their sympathies and support until he posted Blac Chyna’s nudes in the wee hours of that fateful July morning in 2017.
That is known as revenge porn, and it is a deeply vile behavior. It is also super illegal.
Rob’s weight and financial struggles do not mean that he deserves ridicule.
But after his behavior towards Chyna, calling him “king” strikes many as a major stretch.
