The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 32, was bombarded with trolling remarks on social media about her “dad” being released from prison after O.J. was granted parole on Thursday, The Sun reports.
Khloe responded to the wave of abuse dominating her Instagram comments overnight by branding the trolls “a**holes” and “haters”.
She had her say after one concerned fan tweeted to say: “The comments under Khloe’s picture is sick. I’m so hurt she needs to deal with this all. Robert Kardashian is her father. Leave her in peace.”
Khloe replied: “People are assholes but I don’t care lol. I focus on the good.”
She added: “They are all f***ed lol such a**holes. Hehe oh well … I’m happy and they hatin’.”
Trolls commented underneath an image Khloe posted to Instagram on Thursday, showing her on a night out with a friend.
Their remarks alluded to old and unfounded rumours that it’s O.J. who is her biological father, not the late Robert Kardashian.
The trolling continued on two other pictures Khloe posted on Thursday to promote her new clothing collection, with dozens more comments poking fun at the longstanding speculation.
O.J. was successfully defended by his long-time friend Robert at his 1995 murder trial, where he was acquitted of killing wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.
Meanwhile, many fans stuck up for Khloe and slammed those making the jokes, with one claiming it was “disrespectful” to the memory of Robert, who died from throat cancer in 2003.
“These O.J. comments ain’t funny at all ... y’all are pathetic she had a dad and y’all just so disrespectful to his memory so sad,” they wrote.
Another said: “You people have no life. Such disgusting human beings.”
A third told Khloe: “Ignore the comments. Rob Sr. is your father and all the speculation around that makes me sick. Just pure meanness and jealousy.”
Khloe herself has poked fun at the rumours in the past, joking in October: “Some days I’m OJ’s daughter. Others I’m Robert’s daughter.”
Meanwhile, Khloe’s mum Kris Jenner — who was married to Robert — slammed speculation about her daughter’s parentage as “c**p” in 2012.
Speaking on Good Morning America, the reality matriarch said: ‘It just gets weirder and weirder: I have never heard such c**p in my life. I mean, I was there! I gave birth, I know who the dad was.”
Ex football star and actor O.J. was granted parole on Thursday, after nine years behind bars.
The 70-year-old was jailed for 33 years in 2008 after being convicted of a Las Vegas armed robbery and kidnapping.
He will be freed in October.
