Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker accused of ‘blatant’ cultural appropriation of Indian appeal

KOURTNEY Kardashian and Travis Barker have been accused of cultural appropriation after participating in a Native American practice.

Courtney and Travis met with Ayurveda expert Martha Soffer to participate in a cleansing to help Courtney’s fertility.

“Our last egg retrieval was not successful, so our new thing that we are going to try is a panchakarma cleanse, which is Ayurvedic,” she said in a confession.

“He’s about 3,000 years old and all the toxins that are deep in our tissues will be flushed out of our bodies.”

Panchakarma is an ancient method based on the Indian practice of detoxification and cleansing the body of unwanted waste.

Panchakarma, which is translated as “five actions”, usually includes preliminary purification, actual purification and subsequent purification.

Courtney and Travis began the process with a five-day pre-clearance of sex, caffeine, sugar, and alcohol.

The Poosh founder shocked fans by claiming she was drinking Travis’s ejaculate at the time.

They then spent seven days visiting the spa for four-hour treatments such as abhyanga, a “four hands massage” and shirobasti, an oil head treatment.

Kourtney also had a vaginal steam and ginger foot bath.

While the couple were pleased with their detox, viewers at home criticized their involvement in the cleanup and said they “bleached” the practice.

“This is capitalizing on Indian culture (which many Americans have ridiculed for years) without allowing the communities where Ayurveda originated to benefit from it!” one wrote.


“People who appear on the show are probably not only getting money, but also getting extra benefits because of the popularity. If you’re going to use our coolness quotient medicine on your reality show, at least give us (South Asians) a favor. out of him. But instead they make it into a “fancy” thing that only becomes cool after it’s whitewashed. And that gives cultural recognition, not appreciation.”

Another added: “It’s always shown wrong and as some kind of hippie bullshit that gets made fun of. Forget that these are ancient practices that make sense to them.”

A third wrote: “All this ‘cleansing’ has made me realize how out of touch they really are. This is gross and blatant cultural appropriation.”

Another user wrote: “Ayurveda has nothing to do with the bullshit that these people approve of. This is bad because our culture is already being looked at in a funny way and spreading lies about something we Indians are proud of just rubs me the wrong way.

“Nowhere in Ayurveda are people told to abstain from sex or drink semen four times a week.”


Viewers were horrified to hear that Courtney’s fertility doctor advised her to drink Travis’s sperm four times a week.

Courtney told Travis on an episode, “I can’t remember if they told us I was low or high thyroid, but he said he would help drink Travis’s sperm four times a week.”

Travis laughed and said, “I love that doctor!”

The couple has repeatedly faced backlash for their excessive CCP in front of other people.

They were criticized for grinding in front of a realtor during a tour of the house, as well as making “rude and inappropriate” comments in front of Kourtney’s three children and a nurse.
