Khloe Kardashian Upset Instagram Followers With Hijab Picture

You'd think she would've learned from the time she posted that picture of her wearing a traditional Native American headdress at North's first birthday party. Then again, that got her a load of coverage also...

Here is the offending photo in this instance.

Here's a bit of background. Khloe is currently in Dubai and is obviously going to great pains to keep to the dress code. The main issue appears to be that she captioned the above photo "Habibi Love."

Obviously a floodgate of derision opened, inciting such comments as: "I have never been more offended in my whole entire life. My sister wears the niqab and she gets vilified daily. you can wear it and it gets sexualised and praised. i am deeply offended and was a fan of yours, i am disgusted.“ Another added: "Women getting killed and beaten up for wearing the niqab, but you keep pretending it’s a fashion accessory, the disrespect." 


Others were more forgiving: "She [is] not wearing it as a fashion statement! She is in Dubai where it is respectful to cover up! And her boyfriend is a Muslim so she is probably just trying to make a good impression."

What didn't help matters is that many commenters believe Khloe has mistaken the term "hijab" with "habibi" which means "my darling."

Have you any thoughts on Khloe's actions? Innocent mistake or totally orchestrated for coverage...
