Pretty much right after celebrating her 42nd birthday Kim Kardashian was pressured to say something publicly in regard to her ex husband’s anti Semitic statements he made on a podcast last week.
Since the podcast was aired the internet has been shooketh. All kinds of partnerships with Ye have been and continue to be severed as the rapper battles with diarrhea of the mouth. Folks are fed up and some even pulled on the coat tail of his estranged wife to step up and respond. Despite the fact that he’s a grown man and obviously cannot be controlled, Kardashian fell to the pressure of it all and here is what she had to say on her Instagram Tuesday:
Kim Kardashian Speaks Out
Hate speech is never OK or excusable. I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.— Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) October 24, 2022
But then there were differing opinions.
Wait, @kanyewest is the father of your children. I understand you may disagree with his comments but you do not publicly side with his opponents to get back at him. This is a new low Kim. I'm so disappointed. Black women were right about your family. Black men should've listened.— J. Mulholland (@MulhollandL0ver) October 24, 2022
The posting came days after popstar Boy George posted a video questioning why Kardashian had not publicly addressed her ex’s behavior.
“I’m appalled that Kim Kardashian hasn’t come out and added her voice to this debate because this woman has children with Kanye, so she must understand as a mother what it feels like for little Jewish children to hear these f***ing comments, how demoralizing and terrifying it must be,” he said.
We Think Kanye Is Lashing Out
Kanye West not only said bizarre things about the Jewish community and disparaging things about the George Floyd case. But he recently donned a “White Lives Matter” sweatshirt to the Paris Fashion Show a few days before he made those off the wall anti-Semitic comments.
Meanwhile, The Anti-Defamation League categorizes that phrase “White Lives Matter” as a “hate slogan” used by White supremacist groups, including the Ku Klux Klan.
