People on social media were not happy, as many of them found the photo very offensive and racist.

User @MissReesie said in the comments that “as an Asian-American I’m offended,” adding that “setting an example is what adults ‘should’ do.”

@Alexanarchymma pointed out the context of the picture at an Asian eatery: “Using chop sticks? Extremely racist. @eentertainment pull the Kardashians off the air!!”

@Oxjessicanicolemaybe took aim at Disick, who she says should have exercised better judgement. “The parent should reprimand the child about making faces like that instead of taking a pic of it,” she commented, while @aestheticaffinities added that “Scott could have chosen a different photo.”

However, many users jumped to Disick’s defense, saying Penelope was just making a silly face or that she was pulling her eyelids up, not sideways.

“People are really attacking a 6 year old …for making a silly face in an insta post,” @Cheyennemiless tweeted Thursday. “Can children not be children anymore? Let the poor little baby live her life like any other 6 year old gets to do.”

There were some fans who came to Scott’s defense: “She’s a little girl! It’s not racist! Calm down, she’s holding her eyes UP! Every 5 year old doesn’t make funny faces when getting a picture taken!” one fan wrote.

“You clear [sic] do not have children… My kids make faces like this all the time and not one time have they ever said look mommy [I] look like an Asian person… I have no idea what they’re doing, they’re just being silly,” another user wrote defending Disick.

“She’s a little girl having fun,” another user wrote.

Last week exes Kourtney and Scott were seen on a family vacation with the kids and Scott’s girlfriend Sofia Ricci. The trio looked very relaxed on the beaches in Mexico where they probably will spend the holidays. Kourtney and Sofia were seen laying on the beach and chatting friendly while Scott was playing with the children. The three of them were even seen taking walk on the beach together. So signs of tension or whatsoever.
