Kim Kardashian is in HOT water after going in defense of cosmetics mogul and YouTube beauty vlogger Jeffree Star past racist comments.
The two had beef in recent history after her had criticized some of her swatch skills. Earlier this summer, videos of Star spewing racist remarks from 12 years ago resurfaced.
He later apologized in a video where he addressed the controversial comments.
“In these videos I say some really disgusting, vile, nasty, and embarrassing things…. Those videos were 12 years ago, and I look at them, and I see them resurfaced, and it just makes me sick to my stomach because I don’t know who that person was…. The person who said those horrible, vile things—that person was depressed, that person was just angry at the world, that person felt like they were not accepted, that person was seeking attention…. But does that make it okay? Absolutely not.”
Kardashian defended her former foe with some comments on Snapchat which is receiving tons of backlash on social media.
“I get it’s a serious deal if you say racial things, but I do believe in people changing, and people that apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt,” Kim said on Snapchat. “I know better than anyone that I hate when people bring up my past or mistakes I’ve made in the past. So let him live.”
