Kardashians In Cuba

Leave it to the Kardashian family to strain the already tenuous diplomatic relationship between the US and Cuba. It’s not like the First Family of Famewhore is going to let a little thing like potential international socio-polotical unrest or the exploitation of a disenfranchised nation, get in the way of a good reality TV plot or selfie!

It seems the only reason the Kardashians are in Cuba is to get attention. Or, I dunno, maybe there’s some new butt implant procedure available there, or a controversial new plastic surgery to literally turn your skin into bonafide never aging silicone. But anyway, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe are there, and blowing up Instagram.

The family plans to use the footage for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but some US Representatives are seriously displeased by the family using the impoverished country.

“I know it’s cool for celebrities to go to Cuba, but the Cuban people don’t experience the glamorous Havana that is featured on social media,” lamented Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Rep. from South Florida. Seriously, their fashion crimes alone should prevent them from obtaining a travel Visa. 

“Far from photo shoots and fruity drinks, everyday Cubans experience a different, sad reality,” she continues in a statement to People

Apparently, celebrities providing a false sense of reality about life on the island continues to stigmatize the plight of Cubans, and minimize the difficulty they experience under the dictatorial Castro regime. With all Cubans must deal with, the last thing they need is to witness a giant ass of a Kardashian “parachuting into the island to tape their vapid TV show,” complains Rep. Ros-Lehtinen

“Haven’t the Cuban people suffered enough?” she wonders. Indeed! But if anything will get the US Citizens into overdrive helping the Cubans, it will be to help them drive the Kardashians out. That scourge belongs only on Pluto.

“You guys I have had about 4 cortiditos today lol! I’m hooked all over again,” tweeted Khloe… who plans to “start with my Spanish tutor” as soon as she returns to Cali. #KGoals 

Of course, no amount of criticism will hold a Selfie Stick down. Oh no, got to keeeeeep on cliiickin! Nearly instantly upon landing in Cuba, Khloe started posting photos of the sisters making a mockery by sucking on cigars. By their side was Khloe’s BFF Malika Haqq. Photos of the Kardashians’ self-absorbed behavior are below.
