Fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians have laid into Rob Kardashian after a clip from the show resurfaced in which he spoke unkindly about his sister Khloe
Rob Kardashian has been targeted by fans after a clip from Keeping Up With The Kardashians resurfaced in which he made a “cruel” jibe about sister Khloe Kardashian’s weight.
The now 35-year-old reality star was cutting with his thoughts on Khloe’s weight in an episode of their family’s long-running show and he has has faced a backlash since a fan shared the clip on Reddit.
The family may have moved on to Hulu for their new incarnation, The Kardashians, but they made their name on the E! series which followed their lives for 20 seasons.
In the clip, Rob is seen reading a section of an article about Khloe, now 37, and her marriage to former husband Lamar Odom.
When Khloe asked what was being said in the article, Rob replied: “Just saying how he calls you like big.”
Khloe hit back: “Robert no he doesn’t call me big.”
But Rob quickly added: “Like it says ‘Khloe’s not small.'”
Khloe then read the article herself and spoke former NBA star Lamar’s alleged words back to Rob: “When people see us in person, they see that Khloe’s not small.
“I’m not small. We have nothing to be ashamed about.”
Khloe looked at her brother and asked: “So when did he call me big?”
Rob hit back with a cutting jibe: “I’m just telling you, people think that you’re big. I’m just saying.”
An annoyed Khloe told Rob in return: “That’s not what he meant and that’s what p***es me off about this stuff.
“Like no matter what, people just make up their stupid s**t it’s so annoying.”
Khloe continued: “Everyone wants to be a critic and I’m fine with the weight that I am right now.
“I am proud to say that I get all this criticism and I haven’t done anything unhealthy to try to lose weight.”

The Good American founder added: “I try to be a good role model and my weight doesn’t define who I am.”
Fans leapt to Khloe’s defence as they commented about the clip and slammed Rob for his cruel words.
One fan wrote: “This may have just been for a storyline, but it legit feels like the whole world gaslit Khloe for like 8 years over her weight. She was never fat.”
Another added: “This is such a clearly set up scene for her to address people fat-shaming her. When Rob starts laughing and says ‘Idk! I’m just telling you people think you’re big’ lol.
“I read Lamar’s quote and it sounds like he’s talking about their height, not weight.”
A third reasoned: “Khloe has never ever even once been ‘big'”.
