KIM Kardashian has been slammed for a joke she made on Twitter in 2012 which fans have claimed is racist.

Back in 2012, Kim seemed to make a bad joke on Twitter that many fans have said is racist.
The SKIMS mogul wrote at the time: “Mom- want any coffee? Me- yes please Mom- how do u take it? Me- half coffee half milk. Just make it the colour of what my kid would be.”
Kim posted the tweet one year before welcoming daughter North, eight, with ex-husband Kanye West, 44.
The former couple- who also share kids Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two- were dating at the time that the tweet was posted.
While Kim posted the tweet nearly a decade ago, many KUWTK fans have expressed their outrage over the comment in a recent Reddit thread dedicated to the Kardashians’ tone-deaf moments.
One Reddit user wrote: “This tweet has lived a little rent free in my mind, ngl!! I was just like what on earth lmao.”
An additional fan chimed in: “I had never seen that, lol, it reminds me of when Khloe said that they are the only KKK to let black men in.”
Meanwhile, others responded to Kim on the Twitter thread.
Another upset fan commented: “Pure, unadulterated insanity. I’m convinced this is just to make people mad. Don’t fall for this bait folks!”
Kim was slammed just weeks after a clip resurfaced of Khloe, 37, using a racial slur in an old KUWTK clip.
In the throwback scene, Khloe had spoken up to defend Kim after trolls had accused her of appropriating black culture.
While offering a response to the haters, Khloe reportedly said: “Hashtag fact, my baby is black.
“Hashtag I only like black c**k. That’s what I would say.”
Khloe then reportedly appeared to have used the N-word when she described some of the name-callings she had received from fans.
After one Twitter user had re-shared the old clip on social media, fans begged Hulu to “cancel” the Kardashians new show.
Kim has also faced backlash in the past when fans accused her of “blackfishing.”
Last year, the reality star posted a photo of her hands on her Instagram Story that showed two very different shades of color.
In the snap, one of Kim’s hands looked much lighter than the other as she wrote: “Body makeup is perfect for hands bc my hands are always pale & our formula is waterproof so you can wash your hands!
“We used colour Light/Medium.”
Some fans weren’t happy that Kim changed her skin colour, as a Twitter user shared the Story and wrote: “It must be so exhausting having to tint your skin darker every time you do a shoot or something.”
Another critic chimed in: “I mean she is also known for blackfishing a bunch. So I get the frustration.”
“If she stopped wearing all that s**t, her skin might be able to catch some f***in’ vitamin D and tan naturally,” a third added.
