Another person insisted that Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter was mimicking behavior she’d seen from someone close to her. “She must have seen someone do it to think it’s okay,” the user wrote.

One follower believed it was Scott’s fault for not correcting her. “Teach her not to do the Chinese eye thing at a sushi restaurant,” the person said. “Don’t teach her to be a racist. Cause that’s what’s gonna happen.”
