Kim Kardashian under major fire after using the ‘R’ word on her friends

All because they didn't know what her Halloween costume was.

Kim Kardashian unveiled a large array of looks this Halloween, and while they were all epic, her latest for Kendall’s combined b’day party fell flat.

Not because it wasn’t great, but because nobody knew who she was. And she was PISSED.

Kim and best friend Johnathan Cheban dressed as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.

While going around the party, Km filmed herself asking guests who she was, and when none of them could guess, she proceeded to call them ‘r*tarded’.

“Too young to know WTF,” KKW captioned one of the stories.

“Nobody knows who I am,” Kim told former assistant Stephanie Shepherd, who actually recognised her look. “Yeah! R*tarded,” she continued, in the now-deleted vid.

Fans took a lot of offense to her use of the ‘R’ word.

Sister Khloe actually used the same slur back in July, and quickly apologised for her mistake.

Kim deleted the video in which she says the word, and issued a statement to Us Weekly.

“I want to apologise for what I said in a recent video post that is inappropriate and insensitive to the special needs community,” she said. “I try to learn from my mistakes and this is one of those times. Please know that my intention is always pure, and in this case, it was a mistake. I’m sorry.”
