It’s not a good day for Kim K.
The reality television mogul has come under fire for defending her friend, Jeffree Star, after the internet got ahold of the make-up guru’s past racial filled remarks; and Twitter is dragging the Kardasian for her comments.
Posting to her snapchat, Kim urged people to simply ‘get over’ her friend’s racist past. In the videos, obtained by Baller Alert, KK says:
I see you guys being so petty bringing up things in his [Star] past, where he was negative, but he’s also apologized for those things. And I get that it’s a serious deal if you say racial things, but I do believe in people changing and people that apologize I do give them the benefit of the doubt.

Well, of course Twitter was not fond of her comments on race and they, well, let the star know:
Her husband is BLACK and she has TWO BIRACIAL children if someone was to be racist towards them they should just get over it right? pic.twitter.com/IkxRwm87vn
