Kim Kardashian might want to put her phone on airplane mode for the rest of the day. Last night the reality star used her gigantic social platform to defend beauty vlogger Jeffree Star, and is now getting dragged for it online.
For those who don't know, Star has had a very controversial history for saying racist comments, which according to Kim in the videos below he apologized for. He also recently mocked Kim for her swatching skills. This led the reality star to hop on Snapchat to address the hate her fans are sending to the vlogger, and to surprisingly ask for people to forgive his troubling past. She states, "I see you being so petty, bringing up things in his past where he, you know, was negative, but he's also apologized for those things."
Outraged fans reacted to Kim's videos on Twitter. Many call her a hypocrite for defending someone who's made racist comments while married to a black man (Kanye West) and having two, soon to be three, biracial children. Others are upset that she would take sides with Jeffree Star and actually want people to forgive his racist comments. See below.
