Was Kourtney Kardashian's bizarre Twitter rant staged?

Fans on Twitter have pretty strong opinions.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 15 premiere saw Kourtney Kardashian bitterly feuding with sisters Kim and Khloé, with Kim infamously labelling Kourtney the "least interesting to look at".

Following the episode's release, Kourtney has taken to Twitter in a left-of-field rant that has fans questioning whether or not all this online drama is a stunt.

Kourtney, a rare user of Twitter, took to the social media platform yesterday to share her thoughts on the explosive series premiere. She labelled the episode "hard to watch", and called out her younger sisters for their actions surrounding the family's annual Christmas Card photoshoot. Kourtney also appeared to sledge Kim's parenting skills by tweeting "We all have our own priorities. Mine is being a mother."

Fans were quick to note that the drama took place before Christmas last year — over eight months ago — which made the out-of-the-blue outburst seem all the more perplexing.

Kim defensively responded to Kourtney's tweet by saying "The shoot was with our kids!!!!! My #1 priority is being a mother as well and I can work too, so can you!"

After a handful of confrontational tweets, Kim and Kourtney took a figurative U-turn and made speedy amends; further prompting fans to question the credibility of the drama. After Kim tweeted "Don't ever get it twisted, me, Kourtney and Khloé are GOOD! ALWAYS!!!!", Kourtney replied "Unconditional love."

Fans on Twitter were quick to label the incredulity of the situation, calling out the sisters for what appeared to be a thinly-veiled publicity stunt to spruik the KUWTK premiere.

Regardless of whether the Twitter drama was real or a PR stunt gone awry, KUWTK's Season 15 premiere has proven a roaring success — with KKW tweeting that the episode was the "#1 social reality premiere of the year to date".

Fake or not, the Kardashian-Jenners are still making serious money, honey.
