The United States hasn’t quite lifted its trade embargo with Cuba, but there’s already a controversial American export invading the country: The Kardashians.

The first family of reality TV is touring the formerly off-limits communist country, apparently filming an episode of their E! show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Khloe Kardashian has been posting holiday pics to Instagram of herself, her sisters and some pals. Basically, it’s the usual social-media fare of pouty-lipped selfies and glam poses, only with Havana, not L.A., as the backdrop (and cigars in place of cocktails).

The visit isn’t going over well with at least one critic. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., on Wednesday tweeted her displeasure. “How much of the Cuban ppl’s reality will be in this ‘reality’ show?” she wondered, accompanying the tweet with a perfectly timed gif of “Star Wars” character Han Solo rolling his eyes. (It was May 4, or Star Wars Day, as in “May the fourth be with you.”)

Ros-Lehtinen is a Cuban-American who is longtime critic of both the Castro regime and the U.S. efforts to normalize relations with Cuba. Her district includes a large number of Cuban exiles.
