Jeffree Star, a singer and make-up artist tweeted his criticism of Kim Kardashian’s new KKW Beauty swatches kit.
When Kim K’s fans caught wind of Star’s negative comments, they defended Kim by addressing Star’s usage of racial slurs.
In 2016, a YouTube video exposed Starr and the racist statements he made about Hispanics and African Americans.
In the video, Starr said, “I win by having diamond rims, you win by being a poor Mexican.” “Shut up, you f*cking n**** b*tch.” and “You stupid ape.” among many other cruel words.
When Kim K saw that her fans were calling Star out for being racist, she posted a Snapchat video. In the video, Kim thanked Star for his honesty and told people to overlook Star’s racist “past.”
“I get that it’s a serious deal if you say like, racial things, but I do believe in people changing and people that apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt,” Kim said via video.
Kim also said she doesn’t defend people who are racist and is against it, but she will give someone the benefit of the doubt if they claim they have changed.
After Kim posted the videos, social media users called her out for basically condoning Star’s actions and telling people to get over his racism.
When Kim became aware of the backlash her comments created, she posted an emotionless apology on Snapchat.
Kim’s attempt to apologize for defending Star failed and only created a deeper hole for herself.
In the video, Kim said she is naive to racism, which puzzled many since she is married to Kanye West, a black man, who also fathered her two children, North and Saint West.
Since Kim is the wife of a black man and the mother of biracial children, it would seem that Kim should know firsthand about racism and not defend someone who says racist things about African Americans.
It would also seem logic for Kim to not believe that Star has changed his racist ways, since he recently posted a picture on Twitter with the caption, “Hood b*tch.”
But things are not always what they seem, right?
With the presence of Kim Kardashian’s antics and Kylie and Kendall Jenner’s t-shirt lawsuit, it seems that many will no longer be keeping up with the Kardashians.
