Rob Kardashian may have been out of the spotlight for years, but he’s not going to take it sitting down when someone slams his family. The usually reclusive star lashed out with some nasty comments after a fan tried to shade Khloe Kardashian on Instagram.

While on vacation with other members of the family in St. Barts Island in the Caribbean, Khloe posted a photo of herself with her sister Kendall Jenner. In the photo, both girls are in their bikinis and Khloe has a baseball cap that has “Compton” printed on it.

One guy with the Instagram handle @daire_farrell dared to say: “How many times you been to Compton?” Rob apparently didn’t like the implications of the comment and lashed out with fairly nasty comments alluding to the commenter’s mother and taking her to bed. Instagram account @theshaderoominc posted a screengrab of the exchange.

As expected, the comments escalated into a full-blown argument between haters and fans. “You're not even from Compton, take that hat off,” said @velazquez_k. Others supported both Rob and Khloe. “I love that your Bro@robkardashian blasted that idiot. We all need a Rob in our lives,” said @rebekkalehn.

Meanwhile, Khloe has not bothered to join in the discussion. Instead, she continued to share pics from the fun time she is having with her family in the Caribbean. She is on the island for the annual family vacation with Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, as well as Kim and Kourtney’s kids. Kylie’s rumoured boyfriend Tyga is also on the island with the clan.

Rob has opted to skip this vacation yet again after missing out on last year’s Thailand trip and a ski trip to Montana earlier this year. He has been staying away from numerous family trips and gatherings in the past couple of years but as he showed on Instagram, he’s definitely keeping up with them.
