Khloe Kardashian Tweets Support As Kim Kardashian Blasts Katie Couric In Instagram Rant

Kim Kardashian hit headlines when she blasted Katie Couric on Friday via Instagram and in true Kardashian fashion, Kim’s sister Khloe was quick to back the new mum, also taking to Twitter to say that she “loved this new side of her.”

Despite Kim and Katie previously getting along, the news anchor criticised the Kardashian family in an interview with In Touch last week, saying: “I don’t understand – why are they so famous? I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested.”

Kim, who has received her fair share of criticism usually shrugs off the negative press attention, but it seems the new mum is no longer prepared to put up with catty comments.

The 32-year-old responded by posting a picture of baby clothes and a touching note sent by Katie after the birth of her daughter North West.

Kim captioned Friday night’s Instagram picture with the hashtags: “I Hate Fake Media Friends” and “May I Humbly Suggest You Not Send Gifts Then Talk S**t.” (see above)

And Khloe was quick to show that she had her sister’s back, taking to Twitter to post: “God I love this new side of u!” (sic)

Katie has since issued an apology to E! News after seeing Kim’s post: “I’ve met Kim before and I think she’s a really sweet person.”

She then went on to explain why she made the comments: “I was responding to a reporter’s question, and explaining how I’m intrigued by the public’s fascination with her family. I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.”
