Kourtney Kardashian can read – in more ways than one.

Kourtney Kardashian is just trying to mind her business and settle down with a good book in her (empty) bath, but the trolls just won't stop coming for her. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star delivered an effortless clapback when one internet bully tried to criticise her reading levels. Not tuh-day!

Basically, Kourtney was promoting her lifestyle website Poosh's new Positively Poosh diffuser and essential oil kit on Instagram. Kourtney was just casually reading Jane Austen's Emma in the bathtub while fully-clothed... and with her makeup on.

She captioned the image: "Diffusing has become a part of my daily wellness routine which is why I am very happy to announce our latest collab, the saje x @poosh Positively Poosh diffuser and essential oil kit.

"I designed this diffuser to look like decor, not a tech gadget, so it will suit anyone’s home. The custom essential oil scent we formulated is clean and uplifting with notes of rose, lavender, and grapefruit. The diffuser is available in both white and grey, and they launch Monday, September 30 at 9am pst at shop.poosh.com."

So, the picture was actually nothing to do with reading it was just a little candid moment, but the trolls came out in full force anyway.

Kourtney was forced to defend herself after several shady comments were posted beneath the post. One Instagram user claimed that she had "never read a book" before and Kourtney pointed out that she had "graduated college". Bloop!

She then addressed a comment that read: "YOU KNOW DAMN WELL YOU AIN’T READING NO BOOK." She simply replied: "Jane Austen’s Emma," alongside a grimacing emoji. She also added to another fan that she tries to read "every night".

In case you didn't know, Kourtney graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor's degree in Theatre Arts and a minor in Spanish. She's also the only Kardashian-Jenner sister to have graduated college.

In conclusion, let this woman read her book fully-clothed in her empty tub in peace, OKAY!
