Despite being the subordinate spawn of the Kardashian / Jenner clan of greed, materialism, and all things despicable in the 21st Century, you could argue that Rob Kardashian has a pretty good life.
That is, until now.
In the hours before and after the birth of Rob and Blac Chyna’s new baby girl, Rob made a colossal fuck up and now he’s paying the price. He posted a picture to Instagram with ‘Thug Life’ embroidered on a new brand of children’s socks that he’s releasing, reports Elite Daily.
As I’m sure nobody needs reminding – Thug Life was a 90’s rap group made up of Tupac Shakur, Big Syke, Stretch, Mopreme Shakur, The Rated R, and Macadoshis.
By definition Thug Life means having absolutely nothing in life. No money, no comfort, no chance of being successful. Being the opposite of somebody who has everything they need to succeed. It means having nothing to your name with almost no chance at all of becoming successful yet going onto overcome the obstacles put in your way and making a name for yourself.
Rob Kardashian was born to an attorney father and a television personality mum. He attended private school before going onto attend the elitist, and of course private, USC Marshall School of Business. Now he spends his days on reality TV making a mint. Hardly sounds like a ghetto child.
And people were quick to point this out, commenting:
This is disgusting. You don’t know what struggle is, and you are appropriating a culture you will never be a part of. You should quit with this anti-black sentiment, things aren’t looking good for you since you called that man the N-word.
Others commented to claim they hope the Tupac estate sues Rob Kardashian for taking the phrase he popularised in order to make money.
What a prick.
