Khloe Kardashian recently upset local listeners of her new Dallas radio show after casually using a gay slur to address her sister's partner.
The 27-year-old conducted an on-air interview with reality TV star Scott Disick on her program "Mix Up w/ Khloe Kardashian Odom" on Dallas radio station Mix 102.9, when she began criticizing his style.
"What kind of homo are you? Seriously? That is not what men…a straight man doesn't carry a Birkin Bag," Kardashian told Disick.
The word "homo" is slang for homosexual, but the slang is often used to insult gays, and 28-year-old Disick was not impressed with Kardashian's choice of words.
"Listen to me. First of all, you shouldn't say homo on the radio. It's not a bad thing to be a homosexual. You're making it sound like a negative thing. Third I'm not a homosexual. Fourth, I didn't come out of the closet. It's a man bag," Disick shot back at Kardashian.
A defiant Kardashian went on to defend her use of the word, insisting that she is not homophobic and in fact the opposite.
"First of all, let me just tell you: I am the queen of my gay community which I love and adore. And I promote doing the tranny look-alike contest. I am queen bee over here so don't even try it," Kardashian warned.
Listeners immediately took to Twitter to express their outrage about Kardashian's offensive language.
"Get over yr self Khloe. Total Id***. "@HollywoodLife: Khloe Kardashian uses a shocking gay slur on her radio show! http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2012/03/09/khloe-kardashian-radio-interview-gay-slur-homo/," Suze Weinberg tweeted.
