Scott Disick and his kids are no stranger to controversy…
And his latest news is no exception.
In fact, if you’ve ever watched Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you’ve seen firsthand the type of trouble that his wild hi-jinks have gotten him into.
Since he made his first appearance as Kourtney’s boyfriend on KUWTK in 2007…
He seems to have caused nothing but drama and trouble amongst the famous family.
This infamous 2010 episode of KUWTK included a scene that’s difficult to forget: A ridiculously drunk Disick getting deliberate with an innocent waiter for unknown reasons and then proceeded to shove a wadded-up $100 bill down his throat.
During a disagreement with then-girlfriend Kourtney about smoking pot in their apartment, Disick’s anger got the best of him and he smashed a mirror to pieces.
The incident was featured on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, leaving many fans to wonder about Scott having an anger problem.
This incident happened shortly after Kourtney gave birth to their daughter Penelope.
He decided it would be a good idea to go on about how she looked when they first met, and how different she looks now with the added baby weight. The remarks later made Kourt cry.
One of the most notable infidelities was in 2015 when he ran off to France with his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Bartoli.
All while Kourtney stayed back in Calabasas taking care of their kids.
Not only is it totally gross that a then-33-year-old man would date a teenager (she was 19 at the time), but Scott also thought it would be a good idea to fly Bella Thorne to France for the sole purpose of the two of them being able to get wasted together.
You might remember it from the 2017 KUWTK episode where the Kardashians invited Scott on their family vacation even though he and Kourtney had broken up in order to make him feel included.
He decided to invite a mysterious woman named “Chelsea” to come along without consulting anyone else.
Okay, this one is just plain sad.
In July of 2016, Scott’s adorable daughter Penelope turned 4 years old. She celebrated in typical 4-year-old fashion, with a giant party in the Bahamas. But there was one important person missing from the festivities – Scott Disick, who also failed to post anything on social media about his only daughter’s big day.
He has been working on his alcohol problem and he has been focusing on being a better father to his children.
And his relationship with twenty-one-year-old Sofia Richie was even given the nod of approval by the Kardashians… even though she is so much younger than him.
But regardless of this unfortunate break up, Scott seems to be doing better than ever.
And as any parent can agree, being present is vital during these younger ages.
And it’s clear to see that they’re their father’s kids!
But with the internet being the internet, there is always something that will trigger someone.
Scott posted this cute photo back in 2019 of him and Penelope, captioning it:
“Best first date of 2019!”
It seems that the internet has a huge problem with this seemingly innocent selfie.
Several people were offended by the photo and accused young Penelope of pulling her eyes back in a way that would be derogatory to Asian people.
Instagram user @lagaratica condemned Scott for his decision to post the pic in the first place and draw attention to something that could be taken as racism.
They also commented on how disrespectful this gesture was to make while in a sushi restaurant, of all places.
“In a Japanese restaurant, any white person lifting up eyelids is committing a racist act.”
One person blamed both Scott and Kourtney for their daughter’s behavior.
“Her not knowing that pulling her eyes back is offensive is not an excuse for her PARENTS,” said @missamal93.
“They should have said something.”
This user, who claims to be “Asian AF,” saw no offense in the gesture.
They claimed that the direction in which she was pulling her eyelids was what made all the difference.
Eluke3 chalked up the photo as nothing more than “a child making faces,” and that people were making too much of a big deal out of “a man having dinner with his daughter.”
“Come on guys she’s young,” said one commenter, which another condemned online trolls for refusing to let this little girl grow up without being “traumatized” for making a “funny face.”
“IT IS SHAMEFUL!” said outraged user @naliastyles, who also tagged Scott, Kourtney, and (for some unknown reason) Kylie Jenner in the post hoping to get a response.
Twitter user @ashleycam2883 seemed disgusted by people who she deemed to be “picking on children.”
“People need to grow up and talk about real issues.”
She compared Penelope’s goofy face to the faces her own children make in an effort to gross her out, stating point blank that “it’s not racist.”
“She’s acting like a six year old.”
She blames the outrage on people like Perez Hilton, who doesn’t seem involved in the story at all, and claims that “if something a child does makes you uncomfortable then you really need to take a hard look at yourself.”
And the fact that people have been attacking Penelope – a child – really does go to say it all.
But now Disick has stumbled into another parenting controversy – and the internet doesn’t know what to think.
All we can say is, wow!
Do you think Disick’s playhouse is too much for some kids?
