Kourtney Kardashian Called Out By Fans For Wearing Racially 'Offensive' Top

Kourtney Kardashian has found herself at the center of controversy yet again for a style decision. This time, the reality star is facing backlash from fans after stepping out in Malibu wearing a jersey top featuring the logo of the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team. The graphic, which shows a side-profile of a Native American person’s head, has been deemed by many fans as “offensive” and “upsetting.”

The mom of three donned the oversized jersey while on a date with her husband Travis Barker at Greek restaurant Taverna Tony last Friday. Along with this top that she wore as a dress, Kardashian added a long, black overcoat and shiny, almost knee-high boots.

Fans on Reddit, as reported by the U.S. Sun, were outraged by images of Kardashian’s outfit that emerged on the site. In one discussion thread, users began explaining why the logo was “problematic,” as one commented. “Ugh Kourtney’s top,” another added as someone else chimed in: “I love Kourtney and I love hockey – but this is NOT it.”


Kourtney Kardashian Faces Backlash Over ‘Offensive’ Chicago Blackhawks Jersey Top

One other agreed, writing, “Ain’t no way Kourtney confidently wore that jersey. That’s insane.” Someone else added, “It’s a hockey logo,” to which another replied, “I understand it’s sports but it’s still gross.”

Another person asked: “Why is kourtney in a Blackhawks jersey?” While other sports teams have animals as mascots, the Blackhawks have a person from a marginalized community as theirs, another noted, explaining just one reason why the logo is considered controversial.

Another guessed: “She just grabs a shirt from Travis’s closet and pairs it with high socks and creepers everyday. Sometimes baggy pants, sometimes the shirt is the dress.” Someone else joked: “It’s from their costume closet.”


Fans Think Kardashian’s Style Has ‘Changed’ Since Dating—And Marrying—Barker

Many began pointing out how significantly Kardashian’s style has changed since she became romantically involved with Barker, often opting for similar edgy punk or gothic-inspired looks like he often wears, or in this instance, donning a jersey like he might.

One other fan on Reddit theorized, regarding Barker’s band Blink-182: “When Blink was on tour, they would post the jerseys they received at every stadium stop. I’d assume Travis got this from the Chicago shows.”



Kardashian and Baker confirmed their relationship in early 2021, got engaged in October of that year, and tied the knot in May 2022. Since then, they’ve continued to share PDA-heavy shots with their Instagram followers as well as pics of their blended family.
