Khloe Kardashian defends jeans brand after 'sweat shop' jibe

Khloe Kardashian defends jeans brand after 'sweat shop' jibe

"I'm a woman with curves", Kardashian said on Tuesday during Fortune's Most Powerful Women Next Gen conference in Laguna Niguel, California. "I felt so shamed at the time to go into boutiques or go denim shopping". So it didn't come to a surprise when the reality star blasted a girl suggesting her denim factory was ran in a sweat shop.

The criticism stemmed from the 32-year-old reality star telling a worker cutting denim, "Don't f-k it up!"

Khloe Kardashian is the least bit accepting of folks coming for her - which we have to say, is admirable. It was super hard for me'. The jeans come in U.S. sizes 0 to 24 and the collection is said to celebrate real women's curves.

During the interview, Kardashian also touched on how she doesn't think sizes should be segregated, and how she felt when she would go shopping with her sisters and the stores wouldn't have her size. The brand includes sizes up to 24, and she stated, "I remember the chubby girl in me and I'm fighting for my chubby self".

Khloe saw the message and made a decision to fire back at the claim via her personal account.

"'"[Creating this collection] was about doing something that empowers other women", she continued, "and something that is really going to break down barriers".

We're proud of you, Khloe! It wasn't about having a new denim line. "Mind you, Mario [Dedivanovic] said I look like a f**king ice skater, while Kourtney looks like gorgeousness".
