A word of warning to those who would troll Khloé Kardashian: If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
The reality star and new mom took to Twitter Thursday to address remarks she’s seen about the skin tone of her 5-month-old daughter, True Thompson. The baby’s father is NBA star Tristan Thompson, and she is biracial.
Though Kardashian — who has long been hounded by unfounded rumors that her biological father is former family friend O.J. Simpson and not the late Robert Kardashian — didn’t single out a specific troll, she made it clear that she doesn’t appreciate not having a chance to defend herself against “nasty criticisms.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told followers that trolls often delete their shaming comments after she calls them out — erasing her responses in the process.
I dislike the fact that people are allowed to comment on my daughters skin color but as soon as I comment kindly back and praise her for all that she is, the comment gets erased. If you have the courage to post your nasty criticism please allow one to defend or comment back

“Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I’m not complaining about that,” she added. “Please state your opinion but allow me to state mine.
“I try to put myself in their shoes and maybe they were brought up in a different type of household then I was. So instead of shaming I try to educate. In our household we do not see color. We see emotion and action. We see love. We feed off of energy.
“I don’t mind the critics but please just stick with what you have to say,” she continued. “Don’t erase.”
Kardashian added that since having True, she’s made an effort to respond to criticism in a more “calm and compassionate” manner — but that doesn’t mean trolls don’t get under her skin.
“Listen, True has changed me like crazy!!!” she told a fan. “I’m thankful! But sometimes I do want to stunt on these hoes lol.”
It’s unclear whether Kardashian’s tweets were prompted by reactions to her latest Instagram post, which shows True getting some sun while wearing a swimsuit and turban.

While the overwhelming majority of commenters were bowled over by the baby’s cuteness, some made negative comments, including one troll who accused the Kardashians of being “racist against [their] own kind.”
