The internet is having a blast after Kendall Jenner tried to cut a cucumber on the Kardashians, and she responded

Kendall Jenner made an appearance on the May 12 episode of The Kardashians, “Who is Kim K?” and got into a pretty intense confrontation. Nor am I talking about the argument she had with Scott Disick about him not being invited to her birthday dinner. In the battle of Kendall Vs. Cucumber, the vegetable almost beat the relatively private reality star, who sent social media into a frenzy with his inability to slice the cucumber. After being roasted by fans harder than any of the vegetables in Kris Jenner’s well-stocked fridge, Kendall even added her two cents.

It all started innocently enough. Kendall Jenner arrived at her mom’s house and said she wanted a snack. Kris Jenner offered to have the chef slice her cucumber, but the model insisted she didn’t need any help. She started to hold the vegetable awkwardly, and came way too close to cutting herself, and didn’t seem to have any slices. For the life of me, I couldn’t tell you what Kendall and Kris were talking about, because I was too distracted by what was happening on the cutting board. I was not alone. An Instagram user provided some screenshots of the tragic event:

Kris Jenner’s eldest awesome sulky girls starring Caitlyn Jenner was at least aware of her lack of knife skills, as she told the camera she was “not a good cutter” and asked the person behind the camera not to zoom in on she. So obviously they panned to show Kendall nearly cutting herself before moving her hand behind the cucumber, as Kris continued to look worried her daughter might lose a finger. Twitter users were appalled:

Watching Kendall Jenner chop a cucumber is one of the most painful things I’ve ever seen.

What was so painful was not being able to jump into the screen and show him how to hold the vegetable – and the knife – safely! Rather than help her daughter this way, Kris Jenner tried to bring in the chef. Some social media fans took the opportunity to cheer up:

whenever you feel bad about doing something, watch Kendall Jenner cut a cucumber😭

Let’s not be too hard on her, though. After all, despite repeated requests from her mother, Kendall Jenner did not bring the chef to finish preparing her snack. If she never does it herself, she’ll never learn, will she? One wonders, though: how many times in Jenner’s 26 years on Earth has she come in contact with a vegetable that needed to be cut? I shudder at the thought of her needing to dice something, or worse, julienne!

But like I said, she was aware of her shortcomings, and seeing the social media reaction to her cucumber failing, she even posted a self-deprecating response:

She may have survived the cucumber, but her quasi-brother-in-law ended up getting the better of her, as Scott Disick confronted Kendall Jenner about being left out of family events now that Kourtney Kardashian was engaged to Travis Barker . Strangely, Kendall had been the one concerned about Disick’s feelings after the proposal — and fans gave him shit on social media for that, too!
