Khloé, meanwhile, was standing in the background enjoying an ice cream cone.
“I love how most people attending the met speak of how they’ve been on a strict diet for fitting into their dresses etc and Khloé is legit in Kylie’s fitting a day before the met eating an ice cream… I’m obsessed with her,” one social media user tweeted about the video.
“Lol yikes,” the former Kocktails With Khloé host tweeted in response to the user on Thursday, May 5. “Sorry lol everyone was so mad at me but I was hungry.”
Khloé’s quip came as her sister Kim, 41, made headlines for claiming that she lost 16 pounds to fit into her own Met Gala dress, which originally belonged to Marilyn Monroe. The Skims founder borrowed the gown from Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, which purchased the garment at auction for $4.6 million in 2016. The Gentlemen Prefer Blondes actress famously wore the dress to sing “Happy Birthday” to then-president John F. Kennedy in 1962.
