New reports are claiming that Donald Trump fired Khloe Kardashian from the eighth season of The Apprentice because of her looks.
Several members of The Apprentice staff have reported that the 70-year-old Republican presidential nominee called the 32-year-old reality star a “fat piglet” back in 2009, according to The Huffington Post.
“He basically wanted to just get rid of her,” an editor said in a report published on Friday. “He called her a ‘piglet.’”
According to the same editor, Donald also asked, “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?”
A second source who worked on the show backed up these statements, claiming that Donald went on to ask, “Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?”
A third staff member said that Donald wanted to make sure Khloe was eliminated. “When they fired [her], it wasn’t on merit,” the source reported. “It was on him not liking her.”
Both Khloe and Donald’s reps have reportedly declined to comment (via Us Weekly).
