People have been left outraged by the editing of season two of The Kardashians.
Keeping up with the Kardashians may have come to an end last year, but it's been swiftly replaced by Hulu's The Kardashians, giving fans of the Kardashian-Jenner family a continued insight into the life of the unbelievably rich and famous.
However, the family have been called out for the editing of their latest series and accused of deliberately trying to change the narrative on controversial comments Kim gave in an interview.
Kim made the comment during an interview alongside her sisters for Variety's March cover earlier this year.
She said: "I have the best advice for women in business: get your f**king ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days."
On episode four of the latest season of The Kardashians, the clip from the interview is played, however, the last half of Kim's controversial statement has been edited out.
The clip sees Kim say: "I have the best advice for women in business: get your f**king ass up and work."
But the part of the interview which caused most upset: "It seems like nobody wants to work these days," was edited out.
Instead, the episode gives more airtime to Kim's apology and her excusing her comment as not being meant as a 'blanket statement towards all women'.
Viewers have since launched to social media to accuse the programme of trying to downplay the controversial and problematic nature of Kim's comments and 'change the narrative'.
A viral Reddit thread has prompted fans to rain in with their views, with one noting the edits don't 'surprise [them] at all honestly'.
They continued: "It's disgusting yeah, but ever since she did that fake ass apology on Good Morning America, I could tell she really TRULY thought she was in the right.
"Instead of maturely reflecting on it and taking in all the criticism in a way that she can work and grow with it, she got defensive, doubled down, played the victim, and now has attempted to change the narrative. GTFO here Kimmy.
Another accused the family of trying to 'gaslight' its viewers.
"I had to laugh when Kim, Khloe and Kendall were at lunch trying to say they weren’t born into privlege because Kris and Bruce had to sell their house in Hidden Hills and move into an apartment.
"According to Kris’s book that 'apartment' was actually a 2,400 sq foot townhouse near Bruce’s golf club….. and they didn’t stay there very long before they bought another house in Calabases.
"They are trying to gaslight us…. They have always been privileged and no where near poor or even middle class. Yes they work but they also have lots & lots & lots of help that 99 percent of the rest of the world could only dream of having," the user wrote.
A final echoed: "Literally. Watching the latest episode literally just made me angrier. They literally cannot conceptualise why everyone is so mad. Y’all just want to ignore and deny your opportunities.
"They’re literally gaslighting us about their whole background and rise to wealth while complaining about the world gaslighting them lol. F**king morons."
Tyla has contacted the Kardashian's representatives for comment.
