Khloé Kardashian, who’s currently pregnant with her first child, has been slammed on social media over a picture of herself smoking.
The youngest of the Kardashian daughters recently confirmed that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
And while Khloé’s social media feeds have been filled with baby bump pictures ever since the announcement, her sister Kourtney decided to post something very different.
Taking to her own Instagram, the mum-of-three posted a picture of Khloé and her best friend Malika, who’s currently inside the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The two friends are seen posing with stacks of dollars and the Kardashian is seen blowing smoke out of her mouth.
The snap sparked concern among many fans who commented to say the reality TV star shouldn’t smoke while pregnant.
One wrote: ‘You are pregnant why do you smoke’, while another said: ‘Is it really cold or is kloe smoking she’s pregnant 🤰 that’s not good’.
A third also commented: ‘Wow smokin with a baby in your stomach classic’.
And a fourth added: ‘I think you are going to be an amazing mom, but PLEASE tell me that is not smoke I see coming out of your mouth.. I mean no disrespect, I was just concerned.’
However, many also took to the comments section to point out that the picture is most likely an old throwback that Kourtney decided to share, and criticised the older sister for not making that clear in her post.
One wrote: ‘Leave my Koko alone. She would never put the life of her baby in jeopardy. It’s a throwback pick. Koko doesn’t even smoke now. Move on with your lives now please.’
A second said: ‘Why didn’t Kourtney respond to this stupid smoking pic she posted after a 8 month lase. Poor Khloe is being berated because she smoked a year ago. Kourt defend your sister, you posted it take accountability.’
‘Why won’t Kourtney SAY throwback though. She’s responsible for poor Khloe getting trashed. Kourts really changed since she’s been dating a baby’, a third added.
It’s not confirmed when the picture was taken, but given Khloé’s lack of bump in the picture and the fact that Malika is currently in the UK, it’s likely the snap was taken a while ago.
