Now that Khloe has shared the first photos of True, fans are overjoyed to see the cute little one-month-old’s face.
But some are taking a closer look at the sweet little baby. They think that she might be new evidence that Khloe’s real dad is O.J. Simpson.
As you’re about to see, Khloe has actually responded.
Taking to Instagram comments, one person who believes the O.J. paternity conspiracy theory decided that True’s appearance confirms what people have been saying for years.
What’s more, this person decided to write it out where Khloe might potentially see it.
“Her daughter is black which proves that O.J. Simpson is [Khloe’s] dad.”
This comment is followed by a somewhat ambiguous, wide-eyed emoji.
The conspiracy theory that O.J. Simpson was secretly Khloe’s father is not uncommon and has been plaguing her and her family for years.
What makes this comment unusual, however, is that Khloe actually saw fit to respond to it.
Take a look:
Khloe actually took the time to respond to this, writing:
“I mean … her dad is black, silly.”
This reply might actually be the funniest think that Khloe has ever said.
“That’s why she’s black, babe.”
Is the message a little condescending?
Is that fair, given the context?
Tristan Thompson is black. True’s grandfather — who is, by the way, Robert Kardashian — is not responsible for her skin tone.
O.J. Simpson was very good friends with Robert Kardashian back before, you know, O.J. was arrested for the brutal murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Though Robert was part of the “dream team” that helped O.J. get acquitted, the two were never the same after that.
Kris Jenner, who by this point was already divorced from Robert and married to Caitlyn Jenner back before she publicly transitioned, had been good friends with Nicole.
As Khloe grew to be taller and bigger-boned (literally bigger-boned) than her sisters, some wondered if O.J. had fathered her with his best friend’s wife, long before Nicole Brown’s death.
In reality, of course, Khloe is only 5-foot-10. She only looks “tall” because so many people in her family are comically short. Kendall is her height, too.
O.J. is not Khloe’s dad. And O.J. is not True’s grandpa.
Though Khloe has long been plagued by this rumor, True is not the only Kardashian baby whose skin tone apparently threw fans for a loop.
Earlier this month, some of Kylie’s fans began to believe that Kylie’s hunky bodyguard was her real baby daddy.
Why? Because Stormi’s skin isn’t especially dark, basically. But the real answer was because Kylie living a happy life as a young mother is boring, and a lot of people thirst after her bodyguard.
It seems that some people are confused about interracial babies and their skin tones, so here’s a very, very simple primer.
Mixed babies can have light skin or dark skin, because human genetics are basically self-randomizing. Blame it on meiosis and those pesky spindle fibers.
We know that it’s way more interesting for people to believe that everyone is constantly cheating at all times.
But life isn’t a soap opera. Otherwise, the world would have a lot more doppelgangers.
Only, like, half of all people in relationships are cheating. Just because Tristan did doesn’t mean that Kris or Kylie did, too.
Sometimes, the truth is less interesting than what people like to imagine.
We will say this — that person may have been mocking the theory. That emoji may have been an eyeroll.
Khloe may have slammed the wrong commenter.
