Kim Kardashian Apologizes for Defending Jeffree Star’s Racist Past: ‘I just Want to Move Forward and Be Positive’ [VIDEO]
Kim Kardashian has apologized to her fans after she scolded them for bringing negativity to her Snapchat timeline.
On Monday (Aug. 14), Kim was talking about YouTuber/makeup artist Jeffree Star, which drew harsh feedback from her viewers who pointed out his racist videos from 2012. The celebutante then pushed back and said that she forgave Star for his racist comments.
“I get it’s a serious deal if you say racial things, but I do believe in people changing, and people that apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt,” she explained. “I know better than anyone that I hate when people bring up my past or mistakes I’ve made in the past. So let him live.”
This didn’t sit well with viewers and they dragged her on Twitter. Hours later, Kim K. waved the white flag and said she was sorry.
The 36-year-old mogul apologized to her fans for defending Star’s racist past. She also repeatedly iterated that she wasn’t trying to be mean to her supporters she just didn’t want to see the negativity on her timeline.
"I do want to really apologize for me feeling like I have the right to say 'get over it' in a situation that involves racism. I really feel like it's not my place to speak on that," she said. "I do not like going against my fans in any way I just was saying to get the negativity off my timeline."
"So I'm really sorry and I just want to move forward and be positive," she concluded.
