Donald Trump fired Khloe Kardashian from The Apprentice because she was “the ugly Kardashian.”
Previously, a producer admitted that Donald was problematic on The Apprentice. A few days later, another source admitted casual use of the N-word was one of the ways Donald disrespected contestants on the show.
This week there have been further leaks about Donald’s alleged behaviour. This time, he is alleged to have fired a contestant on The Apprentice because they weren’t pretty enough.
Khloe Kardashian appeared on season 8, back in 2009.
Donald allegedly fired Khloe for being, as he reportedly said, a “piglet.” He complained that they should have secured Kim Kardashian for the show instead (because he allegedly felt Kim was prettier than Khloe).
“He basically wanted to just get rid of [Khloe],” recalled one of the show’s editors. “He called [Khloe] a ‘piglet.’”
The production source continued, Donald asked: “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?” (talking about Kim).
A third source added: “When they fired [Khloe], it wasn’t on merit… It was on him not liking her.”
Donald allegedly asked the production team: “What’s the reason we can get her off [the show]?”
Khloe left in week six to attend a court-mandated DUI class.
Donald reportedly wanted her out because of her looks. So the businessman used Khloe’s DUI as an excuse to kick her off the show.
“I hate people who drive under the influence; I really do,” Donald claimed while firing Khloe. “When you told me [that Kardashian had received a DUI], I lost a little respect for you… If I had known that you were missing time away from the task because of a DUI, you would have never been on the show.”
Earlier this week, in response to Donald’s apparent admission of repeated sexual assaults on multiple women, Michelle Obama gave a speech about respect, consent and equality.
