'Sorry India': Kim Kardashian forced to apologise after branding curry 'disgusting'


Kim Kardashian has been forced to apologise to Indian people after branding their national dish 'disgusting'. 
After the 31-year-old reality star's comments aired on 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', viewers took to Twitter in fury over her 'slur'.
One 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 said: 'Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called Indian food 'so disgusting.' Seriously? You don't have to like it, but don't be rude.'

Kim, whose father Robert was third generation Armenian, was forced to respond: 'Just Want to Clear Something Up. 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 added that she doesn't like certain foods from her own culture, which is no way a reflection of how she feels about her family or friends.

'There are a lot of foods I don't like . . . I hate cilantro [coriander] 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', she said.
The E! star explained: 'My comment wasn't intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine.'

It seems the reality star is much more a fan of all-American dishes, such as ice-cream.
She was seen yesterday munching the sweet snack while wearing leather trousers out with her sister Khloe. 
Kim was obviously exhausted by the day's activities, tweeting: 'Still filming. Call time was 6am... Exhaustion has officially set in.'
