Kim Kardashian clears up Indian cuisine comment
Kim Kardashian is setting the record straight after declaring Indian food "disgusting" on her reality TV show, insisting the remark "wasn't intended to offend".
The socialite sparked a backlash among fans after expressing her distaste for Indian cuisine to little sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner in the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which aired on Sunday.
But she has since taken to her official website to clarify her remarks and insist she meant no offence.
In a post on her blog, Kardashian writes, "So on this week's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians I said that I thought Indian food was disgusting. In NO way was this intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste.
"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. My comment wasn't intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine."
