Khloe Kardashian Poses Alongside "Fidel" Sign, Raies Internet Ire

by at .

As previously reported, Khloe Kardashian and her sisters have touched down in Cuba.

She, Kourtney, Kim and good friend Malika Haqq are spending time in the country as part of an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians...

... and it didn't take Khloe long to stir up some major controversy while there.

Khloe just shared a photo on her Instagram page of herself posing underneath a sign that reads "Fidel."

This, of course, is a reference to Fidel Castro, the former dictator of Cuba and the man largely responsible for the United States not doing business with that nation for many decades.

In the photo, Kardashian is donning a form-fitting dress with a silver scarf wrapped around her shoulders.

She has topped off the outfit with a wide-brim Panama-style hat and is striking a somewhat seductive pose.

But most Internet users are not finding anything appealing about Khloe's attempt to turn a Fidel Castro quote and montage into an artistic Instagram post.

"It's one thing to go to another country to attend and support a fashion show," wrote one Twitter follows.

"But another to exploit their people and post this atrocious picture with the name of the man who tortured and killed thousands of people and continues to do so."

Another then asked:

"If I went to North Korea and posed in a picture supporting their leader and people starving people would just be offended, right?"

Yes, we'd think so.

Khloe, Kim and company have also spoken out many times in the Armenian genocide, causing another critic to call them out for being hypocrites.

"Wow... before you take a picture glorifying Fidel how about you get informed ... Fidel is just like the dictators in Armenia that killed so many Armenians," @sutrera0612 wrote.

And @aariddannee chimed in with:

"You and your sister talk about the Armenian genocide and want to bring awareness to it, yet you do something like this. With all the money you have, you should invest a little and educate yourself."

Khloe is not the first American celebrity to raise the ire of the Web by posing inappropriately abroad.

Remember when Justin Bieber both posed at Anne Frank and also wondered whether she would have been a Belieber?

What do you think of Khloe standing by this sign?

Much ado about nothing? Or she sucks a whole lot?
