Khloe Kardashian Says Social Media Is Work, Doesn't Reflect Her 'Real Life'

The Kardashians have built a media empire with the help of social media but Khloé says it's not a reflection of what she goes through in her "real life."

The entire family have been doing press ahead of the launch of their new reality TV show, The Kardashians which launches on Hulu on Thursday April 14. Looking ahead to their rebooted TV show, they appeared in The Kardashians: An ABC News Special where they were pressed on a number of topics.

The love lives of Kim, Khloé and Kourtney are all under the spotlight in the new series, and they were grilled about the topic while in conversation with Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts.

Khloé Kardashian's "real life"

For a family whose livelihood relies on the success of their social media channels, it was somewhat surprising and refreshing to hear the youngest Kardashian sister speak so openly about the topic.

During her segment on The Kardashians: An ABC News Special, Roberts asked Khloé how she deals with social media.

She said: "I get it's a business for so many people, but that can't consume me. Because my real life really matters and what I go through in my real life is not what I go through on social media."

Khloé currently has 232 million Instagram followers and almost 30 million followers on Twitter.

As with anything the family says and does, her latest comments provoked strong reactions online. Hundreds of comments posted their reactions to Khloé's statement across YouTube and TikTok, with a range of responses.

TikTok user @noodles28485 gave their take on the family's business situation and wrote, "It is a business for her, making millions off of views. She doesn't deserve to be hated on but she's profiting off of us why do people forget that."

Latinmuscle wrote, "So she's basically saying people are fools for watching the show lmfaoooo" while @realhunchoking wrote, "It's a business for so many ppl. But it's their whole life and business intertwined."

Khloé was also asked about her ex Tristan Thompson after their on and off again relationship. She conceded that while he's a "great guy and a great dad," she now knows "he's just not the guy for me."

The couple share daughter True who they had back in 2018, but a series of cheating allegations have plagued the relationship.

The new show, The Kardashians, gets underway on Hulu on Thursday April 14, 2022.
