So to clarify, Kim K. likes Indian people, just not Indian food

Kim Kardashian caused tongues to cluck after she declared that she thinks Indian food is "disgusting" on Sunday's "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"  - and it seems some took it as a diss to Indian people and culture overall.

But Kimmy K. insists ruffling feathers was not her intent, issuing a statement Tuesday on her blog designed to clean up the verbal mess.

“In NO way was this intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste," she wrote.

To prove her point, she added that it's not the only cuisine she doesn't crave.

“I hate cilantro and peppers, and there are definitely some Armenian foods that I personally find disgusting, but that doesn’t reflect my opinions on other Armenian people or my culture,” she said. “My comment wasn’t intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine.”

    With all the GOOD that celebrities supposedly do ... I mean your CNN HEROES award show is PACKED TO THE GILLS with celebrities on the show night so I assume they are there because of their charities or good deeds ... WHY doesn't CNN show that bit of entertainment news as opposed to the OVERLY EXPOSED and MORONIC/IDIOTIC, low-iq'd Kim Karkashian muttering "I hate Indian food" (big deal) or "I'm running for mayor" (seriously, if she got in then the people of that town are as dumb as she is) or the insipid story of Justin Bieber walking into glass?!!

    CNN, pay attention to what is news, what people are watching, reading and care about and maybe across the board your new channel and website may get more traffic!!

    Comments as such reflect her level of education. Go to an Indian restaurant and see how things are made, see who is eating and you will be surprised. You will probably find more non-Indian people there. She is clearly missing out. Check out her cottage cheese ass-disgusting.

      Who cares who eats at Indian restaurants and how it's made it's her personal opinion. I dont like Indian food as well, it's stinks.

    I find the Kardashians disgusting, all of them....and their fans. And yes, I mean to denigrate the whole Kardashian culture and anyone crazy enough to admire these vapid people.

    "This is just my own personal taste," she wrote.
    My own personal taste, is that KK is a talentless, worthless, sk@nk. She does serve at least 1 purpose on this planet, giving us someone to laugh at. In stressful times, we all need a laugh.

    Justin Bieber walks into glass, Kim Kardasian doesn't like Indian food. CNN is really at the cutting edge of journalism. Stay tuned for the next breaking story....Kanye West lets a fart.

      yes, you're on cnn, but remember, you're reading the ENTERTAINMENT section of CNN. If you want to read actual newsworthy information, then go back to the World News or US News section of the site...not the entertainment section...

    What a bunch of nonsense! Who cares if she likes Indian food? Just another example how any comment that is made by anyone must be politically correct, or, God forbid, you may offend someone. Ridiculous!

    Kim K. does porn for the whole world to see. Indian food shouldn't be a problem for her. She talks with childlike voice but she's no kid.

    The only thing that smells worse than Indian food is her clam.

    It's one thing to not like it, no one is forcing her to eat it but to call it "disgusting" is not necessary and I can see how some could be offended.

      Absolutely agree, Kim fails to see how her comment really comes off as, unnecessary and rude.

    Why should she apologize? She's just expressing her opinion. This need by people to apologize every time some special interest group can't their panties in a twist is pathetic. I might actually have a smidge of respect (a smidge) if she come back with a defense of right to have an opinion. I mean, not everyone likes Indian food, nor should they.

    That said, who the hell cares what or who this media tramp likes? All that's been accomplished is to give more unnecessary attention.

  22. kim k should jump off the cliff

    Indian food is awesome. It causes a huge food coma, and for you kids out there, gas. Chicken Makhani and Tikka Masala are my favorites.

    Why must CNN keep posting garbage on her? I guess she trolled me. Hope she doesn't troll the rest of you guys... IGNORE THIS ARTICLE.
