kim kardashian keeping up with

As anyone who wastes time on the Internet can tell you, Kim Kardashian is the kind of person who could generate headlines simply by sitting and doing nothing. Rarely does that happen, though, and the reality star was on the move with quasi-in-law Scott Disick to Dubai, where quite the scene was had, thanks to a woman that Scott took back to his hotel room, a woman that Kim accosted and called a "whore" and a "tramp" while kicking her out. As one might imagine, those catty insults left some fans reeling.

It obviously wasn't just Keeping Up with the Kardashians' most naysaying critics that took Kim Kardashian to task for calling another woman a whore on TV, although it's understandably not hard to find comments of that particular variety out there. No, Kim appeared to piss off a section of her loyal and all-adoring fanbase with this one, since the socialite has been a pretty vocal advocate for anti-bullying and anti-shaming campaigns. In fact, those are some of very few issues that garner agreeable words from non-fans, but that all might be under the rug now that she's been captured on TV as the aggressor and name-caller in such a situation,

As someone who has been the target of blind hate and dismissal since even before rising to fame through Keeping Up with the Kardashians -- or through that sex tape, depending on who's calculating said fame -- Kim Kardashian seemingly would have been a lot more careful with her vocabulary while the cameras were rolling. Or that someone in the family would have raised a red flag as the editing team got to work, so that part of that scene could have been removed. But nobody did, and now people don't even have to reach very far to find ammo.

In fact, it appeared like E! and Kim Kardashian (among others) were using the mini-showdown between Kim and Scott's female companion as hype-worthy promotion for the episode. Which is understandable, given the throw-your-hands-up drama involved, but all eyes were on successes and not backlashes. Which is shortsighted, considering Kim's whole reason for going ham was as a way of defending Kourtney, even though she and Scott weren't officially back together, and it was Kourtney's own reported romantic encounters that partly put Scott on the prowl to begin with. But in this case, viewers aren't very focused on blaming either Scott or the unnamed woman for being offensive.

Check out the next page to see the clip in question in all of its questionable glory. And with more episodes that will most certainly have viewers both cheering and griping with equal measure, Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET on E! In the meantime, head to our summer TV schedule to see what's hitting the small screen in the near future.
