Khloe Kardashian Claps Back at Critics Who Thought Her Denim Factory Looked Like a Sweat Shop

Attention Khloe Kardashian followers: You better know your facts before you tweet.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star gave fans an inside look into her Good American denim factory.

But while giving a behind-the-scenes look into how the jeans are made, the businesswoman received a few concerns from fans.

“By the looks of @khloekardashian Snapchat, she’s got a sweat shop working on her jeans,” one Twitter follower wrote. As it turns out, Khloe saw the message and decided to fire back.

“Watch your mouth. All make salaries and all are employed in la! Know your info before you chime in,” she explained. “It means a lot to me to fight to make my denim in the US and to be employing good wages to all of my hardworking employees!”

In the midst of her busy day, the reality star also traveled to Orange County to speak at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit.  While speaking about her denim line with business partner Emma Grede, Khloe opened up about balancing being a businesswoman and celebrity.  

“It’s a blessing to be documenting your life to a degree. There are still 24 hours in a day. We have to utilize them,” she explained. “We film 10-12 hours every day, meetings after and the gym before… you just have to make things work. We’re only young once. Let’s just do it now. I think it’s invigorating.”

Khloe, along with her sisters, also have a personal brand they continue to develop each and every day. While Kylie Jenner lives and breathes makeup, Khloe explained that she’s all about women empowerment and fitness.

“I was always the fat ugly sister, the piglet. It took three and a half years before I got recognition,” she shared. “I easily could’ve gone on some diet fad or gone surgery route and I’m not against that and I’d be in the gym and people would ask me what I was training for.”

Khloe continued, “[I was training] for life, for my day to day and now it’s paying off. I think people are just now realizing. But this has been something I’ve worked on for three and a half years.”
