KHLOE KARDASHIAN ticked off a lot of people when she posted a joke about the KKK on her Instagram last night. Khloe posted a photo of herself with sisters Kim and Kourtney that read, "The only KKK to let black men in." Ebony Senior Digital Editor Jamilah Lemieux tweeted, "Wow Khloe Kardashian, you are a trash bag." Other twitter responses included, "IDK maybe it's just me, but if I were attracted to and slept with and married black men, I might not make KKK jokes" and "If you're a white woman (ahem Khloe) who's dated or married a black man, one would assume you'd get why a KKK joke isn't even remotely funny."

The Utah County Sheriff's Office received a series of 911 calls from a cell phone Saturday night, but nobody was speaking on the other end. Even though the phone hadn't been activated, it still had the ability to make emergency calls and be tracked via GPS. Deputies did just that and found 68-year-old John Richard Valenzuela threatening a teenage girl with a loaded rifle.
