Cape Town - Khloé Kardashian came under fire after putting her foot in it.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star took the opportunity while out promoting her new active wear to address the backlash she’s faced for praising big sis Kim Kardashian’s “anorexic” waist.

Last weekend Kim shared various videos on her Instagram Stories of Khloé and other sister Kendall Jenner praising her slim figure.

Even though Kim kept saying she wasn’t that skinny, she also thanked them for the compliments – which included Khloé talking about Kim’s anorexic waist.  

“I’m really concerned, I don’t think you’re eating,” Kendall could be heard saying jokingly. Khloé also joked that Kim’s diet consists of “celery and maybe some lettuce.”

Khloé added that the mother of three was “anorexic here [her waist] and her arms are like pin-thin, like my pinkie”.

Well, Koko thinks people are taking the comments too seriously.

“She looks great, and I’m praising her for looking good,” Khloé told E! News in an interview that will air in full on Wednesday night.

“She always looked good. I think people are taking those comments so far. It’s also like, we’re teasing each other. People just take anything and just run with it.”
