Kim Kardashian Explains Her ‘Homophobic’ Comment Towards Tyson Beckford: “All My Best Friends Are Gay”

And Kim clapped back on the ‘gram, commenting: “Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,” and the use of the word ‘sis’ made the world wide web call her out for being homophobic.

But talking to Big Boy on Real 92.3, Kim clarified that she believes she wasn’t being homophobic with her choice of words.

“Really, dude? Like, you’re going to body-shame me? Like, okay. Okay. Okay, sis. You’re going to body-shame me?” she told Big Boy.

“People were sending me stuff on his page, he keeps on going and going and going, and I’m just like, dude, that’s so female lame to me. That’s just lame to me.

“And for anyone to say that I am homophobic with the comment of saying sis? All my best friends are gay, I support the community, I love the community, they love me, that has nothing to do with this,” she said.

But people on Twitter believe that the use of the term ‘sis’, which is short for ‘sister’ was Kim’s way of ‘outing’ the model-slash-actor, and that she had a right to defend herself, but she just went about it in completely the wrong way.

Kim Kardashian has been called out for being ‘homophobic’ over comments made towards Tyson Beckford after the model body-shamed her.

It all started on Instagram when Tyson commented under a photo of the star, saying: “Sorry I don’t care for it personally,” and “She is not real,doctor f*cked up on her right hip [sic].”

She isn’t wrong for defending herself. She’s wrong for HOW she defended herself. Using someone’s sexual preference as a way to shade them is violence. Defending homophobia will get you blocked. Take your ass on.

Kim Kardashian is married to a black man and has half black children and still supports a racist President and his racist agenda. For her to say she has gay friends as justification for why her comment wasn’t homophobic is just ignorant. https://t.co/9nmU2OTdiJ

Another thought her use of the defence that she supports the LGBT+ community, and isn’t homophobic because “all my best friends are gay”, is ignorant.

Homophobic micro-aggressions are very real, and happen on a daily basis to members of the gay community, and this is just an example of one.

Tyson may not be a member of the LGBTQ+ community himself, but implying another person’s sexuality on a public platform in a negative light is problematic.

Maybe Kim should ask her gay BFFs what is and isn’t okay to say?
