Khloe Kardashian is hitting back at accusations that she’s using Lamar Odom for publicity in the wake of their appearance at Kanye West’s “Yeezy Season 3” event.

As Gossip Cop reported, the estranged spouses flew together from Los Angeles to New York on Wednesday night to attend West’s concert listening party and fashion show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday. Odom’s participation marked his first official appearance since his near-fatal overdose four months ago. He sat with the Kardashian-Jenner clan and posed for photos (see right).

The outing, however, prompted a number of Twitter users to accuse Kardashian and her family of trotting Odom out for their own gain. Many tweets slammed the reality star for supposedly “using” Odom to get attention. The hateful comments prompted Kardashian to last out Thursday night.

“God forbid exes are cordial right?!?! Wtf is wrong with people?!?! People should praise kindness. Not question it,” she tweeted.

Interestingly, Kardashian actually made a similar remark earlier in the week, after hanging out with former boyfriend French Montana led to false reunion speculation. This also isn’t the first time she’s slammed criticism of her involvement in Odom’s recovery, insisting her intentions are genuine. And there’s at least one person rooting for Kardashian and Odom to officially reconcile.

In an interview earlier Thursday, Kris Jenner said she hopes her daughter and son-in-law get a “happy ending,” as Gossip Cop reported. This much is clear: They looked pretty happy together yesterday.
