(CNN) — Kim Kardashian caused tongues to cluck after she declared that she thinks Indian food is “disgusting” on Sunday’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” – and it seems some took it as a diss to Indian people and culture overall.

But Kimmy K. insists ruffling feathers was not her intent, issuing a statement Tuesday on her blog designed to clean up the verbal mess.

“In NO way was this intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste,” she wrote.

To prove her point, she added that it’s not the only cuisine she doesn’t crave.

“I hate cilantro and peppers, and there are definitely some Armenian foods that I personally find disgusting, but that doesn’t reflect my opinions on other Armenian people or my culture,” she said. “My comment wasn’t intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine.”
