Khloe Kardashian Blasted For Airport ‘Rape’ Comments

Khloe Kardashian Blasted For Airport ‘Rape’ Comments

Well, that didn’t take long. Khloe Kardashian is being called on the carpet for her comments about the new pat down procedures at the airport. So far at least three different groups – including attorney Gloria Allred – have responded to Khloe’s strong statements on her experience with the procedure.
Gloria Allred:
“Rape is a crime of violence,” Allred told “I believe that the word should not be used loosely to describe security measures at airports or at any other place. I think that many victims of sexual assault who have been the true victims of men who committed that violent crime against them and who have been forced to suffer the physical and emotional harm that results from that crime would be insulted that the term would be used in the way that Ms. Kardashian used it.

Also speaking out was the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center:
“I think it was an ill-informed thing for her to say. It was a very strong comment to make because rape is defined as ‘forceful penetration’ and a lot of young women look up to celebrities like the Kardashians. We are all about educating people about rape at our Center and by using the word in this context it blurs the issue as to what it actually constitutes. Maybe Khloe Kardashian is not educated enough on this subject to be talking about it in the context of airport security.”
