Kim Kardashian Sets Off Another Twitter Outrage With A Video Defending Jeffree Star

08.15.17 2 years ago 11 Comments

It looks like Kim Kardashian is in hot water yet again for making insensitive statements that prove just how sheltered and privileged she really is. In a video posted to her Snapchat (and of course saved for posterity by Twitter users), Kardashian stated that her fans “are totally hating on Jeffree Star for being honest about (her) struggle swatches, but because of his remarks, (she is) learning from the best!” She also lamented how much she hates when people bring up her own past, and stated that he had apologized and learned from his “mistakes.” Even though she accepted his apology, it appears the people most affected by his statements do not.

However despite her adamant declaration that she does not defend anyone racist, it’s pretty difficult to make the case that Star has actually made any significant adjustments in his behaviors and attitudes when some of the statements he previously made included nuggets like “I win by having diamond rims, and you win by being a poor Mexican,” and “She’s a fucking n*****! You’re a n*****, you f*cking ugly-ass b*tch! F*ck you, ho!”

Of course, the mother of two black children by husband Kanye West — with more on the way — seems to have failed to see the inherent hypocrisy in coming to Star’s defense, but Twitter was right there to remind her. A flurry of tweets from outraged users was there to remind her of the things he said, and that the past isn’t something you should just “forget about,” but something that you should actively try to learn from. While she did apologize for making the comments in another video, time will tell if she learns from this particular experience herself.
