(SL) – He criticized her new powder contour kits, her fans went nuts and for some odd reason, she sided with Star over her fans. Yes, it’s good to accept constructive criticism and yes, people can change. But… it looks like the jury is still out on Jeffree Star and what Kim didn’t know about Star’s racist past, her fans did and were sure to point it out and call her out in the process.
People reports that on Monday, Star took to Twitter to criticize the way Kardashian West swatched her new powder contour kits.
In response, a deluge of fans began pointing out the racist comments Star has made in the past, which prompted Kardashian West to take to Snapchat to tell fans to “get off his ass” and stop “being so petty bringing up things in his past.”
Oh, no mam!
Kim’s fans blasted her and today, she took to Snapchat yet again to clarify and apologize for her comments after being hit with a wave of criticism for defending Star, 31.
“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,” she said. “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.”
“I just don’t really feel like I have the right to speak on that, and I really, really, really am sorry,” she said. “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.”
“I really am sorry, and I just want to move forward and be positive,” she repeated. “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.”
