It seems that whether you hate them, love them or know them, you’re bound to see a story about a member of the Kardashian family wherever you look. The family has managed to have their stories told on “serious” news outlets, and they have become one of the most recognizable names of our generation. Of course, with all that fame comes scandal and it’s no secret that the Kardashian clan has had their share of it. Here are some of the most scandalous things that has happened to the Kardashians over the past few years.
1.Caitlyn Jenner Attends Trump’s Inauguration

When Caitlyn planned to attend, she tweeted this, “Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ issues and I’m here to help!”. She attended as a guest of the Unity Fund who is an organization that is described as “conservative” and “dedicated to advancing the cause of freedom and equal opportunity for LGBTQ Americans.”
2.Kendall Stars In Insulting Pepsi Ad

There is one shot in which Kendall’s character hands a police officer a can of Pepsi; in which the image appeared to be a reference to the famous photo of Leshia Evans protesting in Baton Rouge. Pepsi claims they were trying to project a message of unity, peace, and understanding, but eventually they released a statement saying, “Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are removing the content and halting any further rollout. We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.” Big Yikes! Kendall eventually apologized on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashian by saying, “I would never purposely hurt someone, ever… if I knew that this was gonna be the outcome, I would have never done something like this. But you don’t know when you’re in the moment …I just felt so fucking stupid. The fact that I would offend other people or hurt other people was definitely not the intent. And that’s what got me the most, is that I would have ever made anyone else upset.”
3. Khloe Accused Of Copying Independent Clothing Designer’s Work
Destiney Bleu is the designer behind dbleudazzled, and she recently accused Khloe Kardashian’s brand, Good American of ripping off her crystal-encrusted body suits. on June 2nd, 2017, she tweeted, “When someone buys 1 of everything on your site, had you make them custom work, never posts it or wears it, then copies it. She also shared the images above, the top two photos are body suits from Good American and the bottom two are body suits by dbleudazzled. Good American released a statement saying, “Under no circumstances did Good American or Khloe Kardashian infringe on another brand’s intellectual property and we are going through the proper legal channels to handle the situation.”
4. Rob Posts Revenge Porn

More to come.” Chyna spoke to Good Morning America, and said, “I was devastated, of course. I’m like, how could somebody post these pictures of me. This is a person I trusted. I just felt betrayed.” Bloom then noted, “It’s also domestic abuse, which allows us to go in immediately and get domestic violence restraining orders to protect Chyna.” The family has not reached out publicly to comment on Rob and Chyna’s legal battles-nor have they condemned Rob’s decision to post revenge porn on social media sites.
