Khloe Kardashian: Donald Trump ‘Immature And Cruel’ For ‘Piglet’ Comments
Khloe Kardashian is calling Donald Trump “immature and cruel” for allegedly calling her a “piglet.” She is the latest former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant to speak out about the presidential candidate.
Anonymous staffers of the NBC boardroom competition claimed to the Huffington Post that Trump spoke disparagingly of Kardashian when she appeared on the program in 2009. An editor was quoted as saying, “He basically wanted to just get rid of her. He called her a ‘piglet.’” A second source similarly alleged to the outlet that Trump said, “Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?”
On Monday, Kardashian was asked about the alleged comments during an interview with “Extra.” “For Trump or any human being to judge someone off looks alone… I think that’s really immature and cruel,” said the reality star, who went on to wonder, “How am I dragged into everything?”
But as Gossip Cop has reported, she’s not the only “Apprentice” star to be dragged into the conversation surrounding Trump and the upcoming election. Last week, Marlee Matlin responded to Trump allegedly calling her “retarded” when she was on the show. And Lil Jon confirmed that the mogul had referred to him as “Uncle Tom” when he competed.
In contrast, though, Clay Aiken defended Trump on “The View” Monday. “The Donald Trump who I knew on ‘Apprentice’ is not the Donald Trump running for president,” said the singer, noting, “He was very gracious.” Trump himself has not responded to any of the claims.
