Khloé Kardashian took to social media this week to show off the gorgeous bag her older sister Kourtney Kardashian gifted her
The bag was personalised with the reality star’s initials, KAK, for Khloé Alexandra Kardashian.
“Thank you @poosh,” Khloé wrote on her Instagram Story.
Poosh is Kourtney’s new e-commerce and lifestyle website.
Unbeknownst to Kourtney and Khloé, “kak” means something totally different in South Africa.
“Kak” is slang for something that is not good at all and literally means s**t or crap.
While Khloé’s fans were none the wiser, her followers in South Africa could not stop laughing
“Is anyone gonna tell Khloé Kardashian what is the meaning of KAK or should we just leave her after that KAK story about her not knowing that Tristan was still in a relationship when they got together? I’m just checking…,” one Twitter user wrote.

We will have to forgive Kourtney for this major faux pas.
How was she to know her sweet gesture would end up being kak funny!

In South Africa
KOKO MEANS GRANDMOTHER
KAK MEAN HUMAN DROPPINGS.
ASKIES MEANS SORRY FOR NOT KNOWING OUR LANGUAGE.
