"Keep these precious lil brown babies out of this."
Being a Kardashian-Jenner is stressful business so when Khloe Kardashian booked herself a family vacation to the Bahamas with her daughter True Thompson and niece Chicago West, she probably thought it would all be peace and tranquility.
But, no, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is getting backlash after posting a seemingly innocent holiday snap on Instagram and Twitter.

Khloe shared a photo of True and Chi tucking into some Cheetos Puffs and Garden Veggie Straws and to be honest it's a whole mood.
However, the Revenge Body host decided to controversially make the caption about calorie counting, which is…just a little problematic considering they're babies. The caption read: "Chi: I heard my mama say 'vacation calories don't count'.
"True: Don’t tell me twice Chi."

Now Khloe is being accused of "introducing diet culture" to the one-year-old girls.
hey not trying to be a bitch and i completely understand this is a joke, but even things said in passing can have massive affect on young minds. be careful what you’re teaching! counting calories is rarely a healthy thing, if ever! ❤️— cam (@pinktanos) August 19, 2019

Calories and children do not need to be in the same sentence even if it’s a joke— Chancy With AIH & Mental Health (@SOCIALLYCRUSHED) August 19, 2019
Are you introducing diet culture to your infant child? Don't do that!— Shelby Petersen (@shelbypetersen) August 19, 2019
However, others concluded that it was simply a joke.
