Kendall Jenner Reacted To The Viral Video Of Her Struggling To Cut A Cucumber After Being Called “Far Removed From Reality” When Kris Jenner Called For Help From Their Chef

Kendall was called “privileged” and “far removed from reality” after Kris Jenner called for help from their personal chef when she struggled to cut up a cucumber.

The latest installment of Hulu reality series The Kardashians was quite the roller coaster, to say the least.

From drama surrounding exes Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to a couple of awkward spats involving Scott Disick, the episode was full of juicy content.

But between all of the chaos, one moment in particular — that perhaps wasn’t anticipated by fans — wound up attracting tons of attention online, and it involved Kendall Jenner and her attempts to cut a cucumber.

As bizarre as it sounds, the short clip of Kendall chopping up the vegetable went viral after fans were left bewildered by just how difficult she found it.

During the video, Kendall is joined by her mom, Kris Jenner, who asks if she’d like their chef to make her a snack. Kendall replies, “I’m making it myself. Just gonna chop up some cucumber, it’s pretty easy.”

Clearly speaking too soon, however, Kendall goes on to admit that she’s “scared” she’ll accidentally cut herself as she questions how to hold the vegetable and knife.

“You go, girl,” says Kris before closely watching her daughter as she begins to attempt slicing her snack. “Be careful because I nipped myself the other day,” she warns.

“I know, I’m kinda scared,” Kendall says as she repositions herself. Looking confused and questioning whether or not cucumbers have seeds, the 26-year-old model goes on to the camera crew: “I’m definitely not a good cutter, so don’t zoom in on me. I’m not professional whatsoever.”

As she awkwardly begins, Kris — who’s now clearly concerned — calls for their personal chef to take matters into their own hands.

“Hey, chef, do you wanna cut this up for her?” Kris calls out. But, adamant to finish preparing her snack, Kendall maintains that she’ll do it herself.

And Kris is certainly sure to let Scott Disick know that “Kendall’s cutting cucumber” as soon as he joins them in the kitchen later on.
