Vogue India experienced similar backlash when Kendall Jenner appeared on the magazine's May 2017 cover. At the time, publication released a statement on Instagram defending its position, saying in part: "In the last 10 years, Vogue India has had only 12 international covers, including Kendall Jenner, in 2017. Therefore, statistically, 90 per cent [sic] of our covers are Indian! And we are proud of that," it read.

Kardashian has not yet commented on the controversy, but in the interview she spoke about the success of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and revealed what she liked most about each of her family members—including her "perfect" mom, Kris Jenner. "The saris, the jewelry, the clothes—everything was so beautiful!" she said about the shoot.

This post will be updated if Kim Kardashian responds.
