They say the pen is mightier than the sword, which is why it’s so important to choose your words carefully. Especially in the world of celebrity, where everything you do and say is judged by millions.

One Kardashian sister was reminded of this recently, when she used a word that (in our opinion) should really just disappear forever.

Khloe Kardashian was setting up a live Instagram feed last week and when she couldn’t get the thing started properly, she repeatedly used the “r word” to express her frustration. Specifically, she called her sister Kourtney a “f**king r****d” in the since-deleted video.

Right away people began calling Khloe out for her faux pas, reminding her that the word isn’t really socially acceptable anymore (was it ever?) thanks to the negative connotations that come with it.

To her credit, Khloe responded right away and promised that she would “do better,” while also removing the post.

Some fans were for it, showing their support for Khloe on the ever-evolving thread.

Others weren’t quite so impressed, saying it was all for publicity or that using the word in the first place is simply unforgivable.

Hopefully this really was just a bit of a brain lapse, because at this point we all probably should know better, shouldn’t we? Yes, as we become more aware of how certain slang words affect other people our evolving vocabulary can take some getting used to; it’s a process. But at the same time, the “r-word” has been recognized as a bad and insensitive word for a quite some time now and there’s really no excuse to use it.

We think Khloe got that message loud and clear, don’t you?
