If, like us, you're a major fan of the Kardashian-Jenners, then you'll no doubt be *obsessed* with their new show, The Kardashians. But, while the family's new series has already been jam packed with drama and excitement aplenty, one scene has got fans talking for all the wrong reasons.

ICYMI, in the most recent episode of The Kardashians, we see momager Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian in the back of a car as they attempt to have a private conversation (about Travis Barker proposing to Kourtney Kardashian). To keep their chat on the down-low, Kris asks the driver to get out of the car and close the trunk, but what ensues is a bit of a one-sided yelling fest from the KarJenner matriarch, resulting in Khloé stepping in to tell her mum: "You're yelling at a fucking guy."

Khloé then communicates with the driver herself, politely asking him to close the trunk and give them some alone time. "It's not what you say, it's how you say it," Khloé tells her mum afterwards, to which she replies: "I know."

But, despite the scene ending with a resolve, viewers at home weren't happy with how things played out between Kris and the driver, with many taking to social media to call out her behaviour. "Watching Kris Jenner yell at the driver to get out of the car and close the trunk just so they can have a convo is really cringey. Like, you do know that these people are paid to be discrete, right? Like, even if you don't trust them, show some respect," wrote one viewer.

"The way Kris Jenner rudely demanded the driver get out and close the trunk reminded me why I quit the service industry. Having money does not mean you can treat people like that honey," said another person, with a third tweeting: "This is embarrassing and I never tweet this stuff but I’m watching The Kardashians and the way @KrisJenner told the driver to get out and rudely yelled for him to close the trunk is just disgusting. Just because you have money doesn’t mean you get to forget how to talk to people."

Other viewers took the moment to praise Khloé for how she handled the situation, with one fan saying, "At least Khloé treated him right like a respectful person."

But is this really what working for the Kardashian-Jenners is like? Apparently not, as one former employee of the KarJenners told Refinery29 that working with them is like being in "one big extended family."

"We get each other Christmas presents, we take care of all the kids like they’re our own kids," said Stephanie Shepherd, Kim Kardashian's former personal assistant. "Everyone who works for the Kardashian family is part of this little tribe."

Perhaps Kris was just having a bad day then, eh?
