Kim Kardashian Apologizes for Aaliyah Costume: 'We Don't See Color in My Home'

Kim Kardashian is apologizing for offending anyone with her Aaliyah costume.

The 37-year-old reality star dressed up as the late music icon in an outfit inspired by her “Try Again” music video but some people took issue with the costume.

“I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone. When I was creating the costume, I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire,” Kim wrote on her website.

She added, “I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists. For me, it’s always about love and respect. I loved that Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of her costumes, and that my son was Axel Rose. We don’t see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect – it’s that simple!”

    I´m not really a fan, but I´m with her on this one 100%.

  • Sara

    All she screws are black men so she clearly sees color.

  • SquidBillie

    Aaliyah was much cuter. You just looked like a cow in that costume.

  • Penny Dreadful

    Oh stop, Kim. You chose costumes based on which ones would let you show your titties.

  • Joher

    Not my favorite person but whatever she decided to wear people were gonna get offended like anyway

  • Gina

    As long as she didn’t wear blackface, I don’t mind.

  • YupVideoFever

    This is really fun to see how their pr team imitates some offended people to send a message that would have a positive impact on the kardashains brand.

  • parisjok

    she has a black husband and half black kids so yes she can indeed wear this all day long. her beautiful kids look 100 percent black and she seems to be on top of things in the type of world they will be living in. I think she looks beautiful.

  • quartzoup

    I think people were just upset that she chose women with talent. Truthfully she should have paid homage to porn stars, not actual artists.

  • Happy Camper

    I don’t like her. Like, at all! But, c’mon….that is ridiculous if someone complained. People just want to be upset about something all the time, it seems.

  • Happy Camper

    Agree with you! Like I see my friend post on Twitter: “What y’all mad about today?”

  • starchy

    What the hell – I am agreeing with Kim Kardashian! Really, this is getting ridiculous. We are a nation of people offended by freaking nothing while the world out there goes to hell. Dressing as someone without coloring your skin is hardly offensive, or appropriation. Ugh.

  • Jo

    So if she didn’t, she wouldn’t see color? Ugh. You’re horrible.
