Khloe Kardashian’s 5-month-old daughter is already facing colorism

Kim Kardashian shared a photo of the newest members of the Kardashian clan on Friday, prompting a conversation on social media about colorism following negative comments regarding Khloe Kardashian’s daughter.

The photo, captioned “The Triplets,” features the infant daughters of Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Khloe Kardashian—Chicago West, Stormi Webster, and True Thompson, respectively. Shortly after the photo was shared to to Instagram and Twitter, users on both mediums began making nasty comments, ranking the children’s cuteness and commenting on True’s skin color.

Many Kardashian fans expressed disgust and sympathy for Khloe Kardashian and True, who is only 5-months-old.

Some people even suggested that True’s darker complexion is due to Khloe Kardashian being the daughter of O.J. Simpson, a rumor the Kardashian sister has grown up with.

Khloe Kardashian has been the butt of jokes about her family resemblance for years, and the pattern seems to repeating itself with her daughter. While the new mother has not publicly acknowledged the latest banter about her daughter’s complexion, she did respond to a now-deleted tweet calling True “ugly” back in July.

“What self-respecting adult would even comment on a child’s appearance?” Kardashian wrote at the time. “It’s pathetic that you are this miserable in your life.”
