American entrepreneur/television personality Khloe Kardashian has responded to reports that 2016 U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump called her a "fat piglet" in 2009. The incident occured while the 32-year-old reality star was on season eight of Celebrity Apprentice.
According to the Huffington Post, Trump asked the show's producers to remove her from the show because of her appearance. An editor on the show at the time said: "He basically wanted to just get rid of her. He called her a 'piglet.'"
Trump allegedly once asked: "What is this? We can't even get the hot one?" - referring to Khloe's older sister, Kim Kardashian West.
Another source at The Apprentice claimed: "He said: 'Why don't we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?'"
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star revealed she did not give importance to his comments. She told Extra: "For Trump or any human being to judge someone off looks alone... I think that's really immature and cruel."
This comes after Trump received backlash for a vulgar conversation he had with former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush back in 2005. In the leaked video, the 70-year-old is seen making lewd comments about women.
"I moved on her and I failed, I'll admit it. I did try and f**k her. She was married," Donald says in the video.
"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful, I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything," he added.
