“OK, guys, we are Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee,” she said in a video posted on her Instagram story. “Nobody knows who we are here! You guys are all too f**king young. This is so sad.”

In another video, Kardashian filmed her former assistant, Stephanie Shepherd, complimenting her costume and mentioning that no one else could identify the 37-year-old reality star’s costume.

“Nobody knows who I am. Yeah! R*t*rd*d,” she said.

This comes after Kardashian’s sister Khloe came under fire for using the word during an Instagram livestream in July.

After her Twitter followers called her out, Khloe apologized.

“Ugh, I hate that word! Why did I even say that?” she wrote at the time. “You are a million per cent right, and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! Much love today.”
