Khloe Kardashian angers followers with hijab Instagram pic

May 26, 2015 Khloe Kardashian

The Kardashians have never had it easy while in The Emirates. Khloe Kardashian is latest to spark an outrage among the Muslim community after the reality star, who is currently in Dubai, tried to adhere to its conservative style.

The star donned a niqab and hijab - garments worn by Arab women to cover their head and face - and posted a pic captioned "Habibi Love."

This led to a series of angry comments from her followers. “Women getting killed and beaten up for wearing the niqab, but you keep pretending it’s a fashion accessory, the disrespect,” one commenter wrote.

“I have never been more offended in my whole entire life,” another added. “My sister wears the niqab and she gets vilified daily. you can wear it and it gets sexualised and praised. i am deeply offended and was a fan of yours, i am disgusted."

While majority of the comments were negative, the on-off girlfriend of Muslim rapper French Montana did get support from some.

“She [is] not wearing it as a fashion statement!” one commenter wrote. “She is in Dubai where it is respectful to cover up! And her boyfriend is a Muslim so she is probably just trying to make a good impression.”
