Kim Kardashian is issuing a heartfelt apology after she was blasted for defending racist comments made by make-up artist Jeffree Star.
Kardashian apologized to her fans on Snapchat this week when she posted a video in which she admitted that she “didn’t know enough about” the situation before rushing to the defense of the YouTube star earlier this week after past racist remarks he made were uncovered by her fans.
“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,” Kim told her fans in a video posted to the app according to People, revoking her support for Star.
Adding that she doesn’t “really feel like I have the right to speak on that” after she defended Jeffree and urged her millions of fans to do the same, she continued by telling fans that she was “really, really, really” sorry for asking them to forgive and forget.
Kim then attempted to explain her actions and claimed she was just trying to keep things positive and moving forward after she saw her fans calling out the YouTuber, which is why she decided to defend Star without fully understanding the enormity of the situation after seeing the drama unfold online.
