The advice Khloe Kardashian once gave her older sister Kim Kardashian from 2018 has recently resurfaced. The conversation the two reality stars had has sparked an online debate, with many criticizing Khloe's remarks. Here's everything you need to know.

An old clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians has been circulating Twitter all week long. It shows Kim talking to Khloe about a petty argument she and her then-husband Kanye West had. West was getting upset at Kim because he needed a band-aid and all he could find were patterned ones when really he wanted a plain one. "We had a fight 'cause I wouldn't get him a band-aid. I said, 'Did you look in the proper place? There's a band-aid here.' He didn't like that one," the Skims owner ranted.

"We went upstairs in the kids' room, and I go, 'Oh look, North has Jesus band-aids,'" Kim continued. "'Put on a Jesus band-aid.' And he was like, 'I've slaved around the world making clothes for you to make sure that you find the best outfit, and you let me go out wearing a Jesus band-aid." Kim was already bothered, but she was seemingly done when Ye began pitting himself against their then 2-year-old son, Saint. "So I said, 'Call the housekeeper. Let's have her get a band-aid. And he said, 'Well, why can't you get it? You would get Saint one." But instead of siding with her sister, Khloe responded, "If that's gonna make him feel better… don't you wanna just get the band-aid?" Fans weren't too happy with her suggestion. "Khloe's response speaks volumes. ALWAYS putting a man first no matter what, zero boundaries," one user commented.

Another questioned Khloe's beliefs when it comes to relationships. "Her response speaks volumes b/c underneath she's saying 'Don't you just wanna do everything your man tells you to do so that he feels loved & he stays?'" they wrote. Many even started bringing in Khloe's dating history, referring to her baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, who publicly cheated and even impregnated another woman while they were together. While many fans bashed her advice, others sympathized with the reality star. "Khloe's so desperate to feel loved," one supporter wrote. While perhaps there's no right answer here, we wish nothing but the best for KoKo. Until next time, stay tuned.
