As fans know by now, Scott Disick got under fire after he posted a pic with his and Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter Penelope making what was perceived to be a racist gesture. The six year old was also greatly criticized on social media for pulling her eyelids while posing with her dad during dinner at an Asian food restaurant.
Generally, people were upset at Scott for allowing/teaching Penelope to be ‘racist’ since she is still way too young to be held responsible for such things.
While Kourt was not there at the time, she was reportedly horrified to learn what people were saying about her daughter.
One source tells HollywoodLife that ‘Kourtney thinks it is absurd that people are criticizing the pic of Penelope and even suggesting that she, or Scott, is racist. When Kourtney saw the very cruel comments calling her daughter racist, she was blown away people were actually attacking a child.’
They went on to say that ‘Kourtney is not upset with Scott at all either because they both know that Penelope does not have a racist bone in her body, and that she was just being playful since she sometimes acts like a complete goofball. Kourtney does not blame Scott because she knows he never would have viewed the photo that way either.’
Supposedly, the mother of three knows the little girl was only pulling a funny face as kids sometimes do and her action had nothing to do with mocking Asian eyes, regardless of how it came across.
The insider also noted that since she grew up in a mixed race family, Penelope ‘does not view other races any different from her own.’
