The Kardashians have a long history of stirring up controversy with the things they post online.

However, it seems like Khloe Kardashian is making a move to take the "ill-advised Instagram pic" crown with her recent post in which she awkwardly compares her family to the Ku Klux Klan.

NEWS: Khloe Kardashian Talks Sex Life with French Montana

Earlier today, Khloe posted an image macro meme that shows her and her sisters, Kim and Kourtney –wearing all white – with white text superimposed over the image that reads, "The only KKK to ever let black men in." She captioned the pic, "True."

Let's just let that one sink in for a minute.

Khloe took the post down a few hours later after she quickly found herself facing a storm of criticism for, well, pretty obvious reasons.

Possibly in response to the backlash, Khloe also posted an uncaptioned pic of a neon sign on a brick wall that reads, "We're all equally f**ked up, some only hide it better."

But this begs that question of why she posted the original joke in the first place. As much as we would all love to imagine that Khloe spends her free time Photoshopping offensive memes about her own family, it seems much more likely that she found this online and decided to repost it.

Was she trying to reappropriate an offensive image to take away its mean message? Did she simply find it funny? Was she trying to drum up additional ratings for Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Is it possible she doesn't know what the 'KKK' actually is?

Either way, it looks like she soon realized that it might not have been the best joke to post.

The week has been filled with controversial celebs making less-than-vague references to racist organizations. Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj took heat for allegedly using Nazi-themed imagery in the animated lyric video for her song "Only."

Check out the video below for more on Nicki Minaj's response to the backlash.
