The Kardasians have only been to Cuba a few days and Chloe cant’ wait to take U.S.-Cuban relations back to more 5o years.
The reality TV star posed for a picture at a location that is deemed sacred for many who have good wishes, positive memories and respect for Cuba and its citizens.
Cuba recently re-opened to American trade and tourism after an embargo that lasted more than 50 years.
On Wednesday, Chloe Kardasian shared on the social media, a photo taken beneath a wall inscribed with former dictator Fidel Castro’s name. This attracted criticisms from people who saw the picture as a mockery to the history laid by the former ruler.
“The name you’re standing under is the reason why a lot of my family in Cuba is living in poverty,” Twitter user Roxy Moure wrote. “Por favor edúcate.”
Another user named Marisa Bayless added: “This man has committed mass amounts of human rights abuses, but hey, why not let’s take a picture.”
Too bad how a star can quickly rise and fall, not financially but in the number of haters and fans. For this offense committed, the 31-year-old Kardashian lost a large number of fans who said they lost respect for her.
One Twitter user @sfkarenmac wrote, “I used to like you, now you’re just another #kardashian. That’s not a compliment.”
Others blasted Kardashian for being uninformed about the nation’s oppression during Castro’s 49-year reign.
Chloe isn’t an activist for Christ’s sake – forgive that if you don’t believe in Christ. What did she study in school? I don’t know either but maybe not ‘History’. I guess she studied ‘Mass Communication’ so she should be given the benefit of doubt.
Another Twitter user @melibarcop wrote: “So messed up & disrespectful to take a pic with that background! You can tell they know nothing about history and care less about people.”
