Kim Kardashian Clarifies: I Hate Indian Food, Not Indian People

After the reality star called Indian food "disgusting," the Twitterverse blew up with critics calling her out for her comments

Kim Kardashian wants to make one thing perfectly clear: She does not hate Indian people or culture, but she does not regret saying that she hates Indian food.

On the May 27 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the reality star made a fuss about the idea of eating Indian cuisine. She told her family she thought the food was "disgusting."

Apparently her comment didn't sit well with some viewers, and the remark has drawn much criticism on Twitter. One person wrote: "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."

Another person said Kim and her little sister Kendall Jenner (who also isn't a fan of South Asian cuisine) needed to check their juvenile attitudes. "Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called Indian food 'so disgusting.' Seriously? You don't have to like it, [but] don't be rude."

On Tuesday, Kardashian, 31, decided she'd had enough and wrote a post on her blog addressing the issue. Titled "Just Want to Clear Something Up," the post clarifies what Kardashian thought should be obvious to anyone who has ever disliked a kind of food.

"In NO way was [my comment] intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste," she wrote. "There are a lot of foods I don't like...I hate cilantro 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."

Explained the E! star, "My comment wasn't intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine."

Did you Kardashian needed to clarify her reaction to Indian food, or should fans remember their own personal tastes before jumping to conclusions?
