Florida Republican Rep. [crscore]Ileana Ros-Lehtinen[/crscore] blasted the family on social media, tweeting, “Kardashians headed to Cuba. How much of the Cuban ppl’s reality will be in this “reality” show?”

Later Ros-Lehtinen told People, “I know it’s cool for celebrities to go to Cuba, but the Cuban people don’t experience the glamorous Havana that is featured on social media.”

“Far from photo shoots and fruity drinks, everyday Cubans experience a different, sad reality,”she added. “Now, the Kardashians are parachuting into the island to tape their vapid TV show.”

“Haven’t the Cuban people suffered enough?”

The outlet reported that the family was headed to Cuba as part of an upcoming episode for the latest season of “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
