On Thursday, Khloé posted a photo of herself posing at a Fidel Castro monument, the word “FIDEL” engraved in the wall behind her, and wrote, “Havana.” After she posted the photo on Instagram, many demanded she take the photo down and bashed her for being “ignorant” and “insensitive.”

Republican South Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who didn’t approve of the family’s trip to Cuba in the first place, told People, "Another day in Cuba seems to bring another selfie in Havana for the Kardashians. While Khloé is taking photos with a sign that says Fidel, she should have at least some awareness that Fidel would have prohibited a Kardashians-style show.”

She added, "More than anything it's disappointing that someone who exercises her free speech right in the U.S. is blind to the lack free speech when she takes a selfie glorifying a serial repressor.”
