Kris Jenner is facing backlash from viewers who have branded the momager as 'rude' and 'cringey' for the way she spoke to her driver in the latest instalment of the new Kardashians series.
In scenes that aired on Thursday, the matriarch is seen abruptly telling Khloé to end her call with her daughter True and asked the driver to leave their car as she had an 'urgent' private matter to discuss.
The 66-year-old began: "Sir, can I ask you to leave us alone for five minutes?"
However, once the driver stepped out, Kris said curtly: "Is his window rolled up?" to which Khloé responded: "Yes, but the trunk is open…"
And before she could finish her sentence, Kris immediately yelled: "CLOSE THE TRUNK!" to the driver.
Trying to correct her mother, Khloé, 37, warned: "You're yelling at a f***ing guy…" but Kris cut her off by again shouting yet again: "CLOSE THE TRUNK!"
Fortunately for the driver, Khloé then politely asked him to close the trunk: "Excuse me, sir, would you mind closing the trunk for a moment? Thank you so much."
Clearly unhappy with her mother’s behaviour, Khloé turned to Kris and said: "It's not what you say, it's how you say it."
Looking at her phone, Kris curtly said: "I know” before revealing that Travis Barker wanted to tell Khloé how he was planning to propose to her sister, Kourtney.
Despite the joyous news, fans were taken aback by Kris’ curt tone and took to social media over her treatment of her driver.
One penned on Twitter: “Just watched the new episode of #TheKardashians - Kris Jenner yelling at the car driver to close the trunk, very rudely...her privilege just jumped out that behavior is so yucky, to talk to someone like they’re beneath you...so cringe!” (sic).
“This is embarrassing, and I never tweet this stuff but I’m watching The Kardashians and the way @KrisJenner told the driver to get out and rudely yelled for him to close the trunk is just disgusting,” another penned.
“Just because you have money doesn’t mean you get to forget how to talk to people”.

The way Kris Jenner rudely demanded the driver get out and close the trunk reminded me why I quit the service industry. Having money does not mean you can treat people like that honey.— Chelsey Larson (@ChelsLars) April 21, 2022
A third added: “watching Kris Jenner yell at the driver to get out of the car and close the trunk just so they can have a convo is really cringey.
“Like, you do know that these people are paid to be discrete, right? like, even if you don't trust them, show some respect.”
A fan also praised Khloé for calling her mother’s behaviour out and wrote: “Ohh I love Kris Jenner BUT the way she shouted 'Close the trunk' to the driver? The mask slipped.
“Khloe telling her she was rude I did like though, for all the s**t she gets she's always been the most down to Earth”.
