Khloe Kardashian has responded to Donald Trump's alleged comments about her while she was a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice.

With the recent flood of comments Trump has made in the past coming to light over the past few weeks, comes a report about the GOP nominee's apparent comments about Kardashian. The reality star was on the second season of The Celebrity Apprentice in 2012, where host Trump reportedly made fun of her looks behind her back.

Now, Kardashian is firing back, while also admitting that she wasn't aware of him saying such things at the time.

"I didn't think he was saying those things about me," Kardashian admitted to the Los Angeles Times. "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. ... 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."

The news of Trump's comments regarding Kardashian came from an editor on The Celebrity Apprentice, who told The Huffington Post last week that Trump "basically wanted to just get rid of her," added, "He called her a 'piglet.'"

The editor also said that Trump asked, "What is this? We can't even get the hot one?", likely referring to Kardashian's sister, Kim Kardashian West.

Another source confirmed these comments, telling The Huffington Post, "He said: 'Why don't we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?'"

Kardashian was the sixth celebrity to be fired from The Celebrity Apprentice in her season, and a third source essentially stated that her firing was pretty much personal.

"When they fired [her], it wasn't on merit," the source said. "It was on him not liking her." Trump apparently went to his fellow producers and asked, "What's the reason we can get her off [the show]?"

News of Trump's derogatory comments come amid a slew of new revelations about comments he has made in the past.
