Kim Kardashian was under fire after she defended makeup artist Jeffree Star. Fans and critics took to social media to backlash the reality star after she stepped up for Jeffree.
Kardashian then apologized to fans for defending Star, who has a history of public racist remarks.
Shaken past 24 hours
Kim Kardashian has been back and forth with her fans in the past 24 hours, as the reality star came to the defense of Star and then apologized for involving herself with the situation.
On Monday, Star criticized Kardashian’s new KKW Beauty makeup swatches and received a bit of backlash from Kim K’s loyal fans because of it, so Kardashian came to his defense, despite his public history of racist remarks.
Though Kardashian stood by Star on Monday, on Tuesday she spoke out yet again, apologizing for hurting her fans.
Kardashian then told her fans to stop and shared several videos in his support in which she said, “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.”
Kardashian, herself, brought it up again, though, after she received criticism for supporting Starr in the first place. In an attempt to cool over the situation, the star apologized on Tuesday to her fans for “defending a situation [she] didn’t know much about.”
In the most recent video, Kardashian explains she is sorry for “feeling as if [she] had the right to say get over it in a situation that involves racism” and hopes to move forward, be positive, and spread love.
Shiny outfit making the headlines
Following the back and forth critic over Star, Kim took to social media to post a mind-blowing full body, crystal encrusted bodysuit, that debuted in the Gucci Fall 2017 runway.
“Set vibes,” she cooed in one of the videos, before posting a series of mirror shots, as well as a very sparkly night-time video showing off the glittering power of the crystals. Following her videos last night, Star posted a video of himself wearing the very same bodysuit. ”
“Ya’ll want to be shady, but me and Kim have the same Gucci outfit, bitch,” he said in the video.
“I think they only made about 20 of these. Kim, you look f—ing hot in it. Let’s have our asses do a playdate.”
