Khloe Kardashian isn't letting Donald Trump's "derogatory" comments get her down.
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star is among the latest celebrities to find herself at the receiving end of the presidential hopeful's negative commentary. The Huffington Post reported several people who worked on "Celebrity Apprentice" came forward and revealed that Trump made mean remarks about Kardashian during her stint on the show in 2009.
"What is this? We can't even get the hot one?" he reportedly said, referring to Kim Kardashian. "Why don't we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?"

But, while many people might let those words affect them, Kardashian is brushing them off.
"I didn't think he was saying those things about me," the 32-year-old told the LA Times while promoting her new denim brand Good American. "But he says those comments about a lot of women — really derogatory things. Someone who is that simplistic to judge things off of surface is not someone I want running my country."
She continued, "It's not cool or appropriate for any person, male or female, to judge someone else by their looks. I find it really cruel. It's wild."
Nonetheless, his negativity won't get Khloe down.
"I'm a tough cookie, so something that he said — that's not gonna bother me," she said. "Ninety percent of the time, [criticism] doesn't bother me. I'm not sure why. I think I'm just in my own world. But I believe that's why [those incidents] happen to me, because I can take it. If that's what it takes to get even just this little group of people to realize how shady and bad and negative that one person is, I can take it."
Trump has not commented about the allegations regarding what was said.
Meanwhile, the controversy with Kardashian comes on the heels of another scandal involving Trump's commentary about deaf actress Marlee Matlin.
The real estate mogul reportedly referred to her as "retarded" and often mocked her during her time on Celebrity Apprentice.
