Kim Kardashian Has Apologized for Defending Jeffree Star's Racist Comments

Kim Kardashian's week has already taken a drama-filled turn - and the Internet is not happy with her.

People reports that Kim caught some heat from makeup artist and beauty vlogger Jeffree star, who took to Twitter to criticize her new powder contour kits, describing them as looking, "like chalk." While Kim herself didn't respond to the Twitter call-out, her fans naturally rushed to her defense, bringing up racist comments Star made in a video several years back.

However, things took a turn for the worse when Kim opted to use her Snapchat story to tell fans to "get off his ass," and "stop being so petty bringing up things in his past." While we'd normally be all for deciding to look past the drama, many of Kim's fans are dragging her for taking Star's racism lightly, especially when she herself has two black children.

Many also brought up the events in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend as further evidence that now is definitely the wrong time to be calling racism "petty." (As in, wrong time, wrong place Kim.)

In any case, Kim seems to have taken note of the backlash, and took to Snapchat on Tuesday to offer an apology.

"I really wanted to apologize to you guys and my fans for defending a situation yesterday that I really didn’t know enough about,” she said in the Snapchat live-stream. “I just feel a bit naïve, and I do want to really apologize for me feeling like I had the right to say ‘get over it’ in a situation that involves racism."
