Kim Kardashian Issues Apology For Defending Jeffree Star's Racist Comments

Kim Kardashian is apologizing for defending makeup artist Jeffree Star, who has made racist comments in the past.

The 36-year-old reality star took to her Snapchat to thank Jeffree for his feedback on her swatching skills and asked her fans to stop attacking him and bringing up the “negative” issues from his past.

After receiving criticism for defending Jeffree, Kim took to her Snapchat again to clarify her remarks.

“So I really wanted to apologize to you guys and my fans for defending a situation yesterday that I really didn’t know enough about. 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 said.

She continued, “I just don’t really feel like I have the right to speak on that, and I really, really, really am sorry. From the bottom of my heart, I’ve always been about positivity and I’ve never been a negative person, so my whole thing was: ‘Hey guys, I don’t want to see negativity in my timeline or my mentions, let’s just move forward — let’s be positive and move past this.’”

“My last message is that I do believe that people are born to love and born with love, and they are taught to hate. So I have always had hopes that people can change and that people can learn to be better and do better, and learn to find that love again. So never give up hope. That is my message for the day and that’s always been what I’m trying to say. I believe in people changing, I believe in people just being better, and I’ll never give that up. I just want people to be positive,” Kim concluded.
