Khloe Kardashian: BLASTED By Fans For "Insensitive" 9/11 Tweet

by at .

Wednesday marked the 18th anniversary of 9/11, a day on which thousands of lives were lost, and America's political climate was forever changed.

Countless celebrities paid tribute to the fallen -- and more than a few tripped over their words while marking this most delicate of occasions.

Khloe Kardashian is in Confessional

Among them was Khloe Kardashian, a seasoned veteran when it comes to both putting her foot in her mouth and fending off unwarranted criticism.

We'll leave up top you to decide which description best fits her latest controversy.

As you're probably aware, Khloe and her sisters are of Armenian descent on the side of their late father, Robert Kardashian Sr.

In the past, they've discussed their pride in their heritage and used their platforms to raise awareness of the Armenian genocide and other matters of which many Americans might be ignorant.

But as you can see, fans felt that Khloe's latest statement of affection for her ancestors' homeland was a bit ill-timed.

Armenia had no involvement in the 9/11 attacks, but many felt that it's a day on which all Americans should focus on their shared identity, not their individual ethnic compositions:

"365 days on your calendar and you chose today to say something like this..hmm," one fan wrote.

"Be proud of your roots of course but out of all the days you tweet this today. It's ironic given that your own brand of jeans is called 'Good American,'" another echoed.

Needless to say, Khloe's tweet wasn't exactly a hit with her fanbase.

But hey, at least Khloe wasn't the only one to step in it on America's most somber day of memorial.

Former Teen Mom OG starĀ Farrah Abraham took her daughter to Ground Zero and forgot the difference between a terrorist attack and a purveyor of Buffalo chicken taquitos.

"Okay, so we wanted to do, since it's gonna be September 11, in honor of the Freedom Towers and observatory deck and everything, of 7-Eleven, we are going to do this," she said on Instagram Live.

"Wow, look at this guys," she added, panning the camera across the 9/11 memorial.

So yeah, it could have been worse for Khloe.

But hey, at least Farrah's not alone in making that particular gaffe.
