Kim Kardashian is now apologetic after defending racist makeup artist Jeffree Star.
Kardashian, the mother of two black children, urged fans on Snapchat that Star was a changed man, even though as recent as earlier this year, he was caught calling black women monkeys.
“I see that my fans are totally hating on someone like Jeffree Star for being honest about my struggle swatches. But because of his remarks I’m learning,” she said. “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 will give them the benefit of the doubt. I know better than anyone that I hate when people bring up my past or mistakes that I’ve made in the past, so let him live.”

But after getting dragged on social media, Kardashian changed her tune.
The mother-of-two took to Instagram to speak directly to her followers, telling them she feels naive for thinking she “had the right to say get over it in a situation that involves racism.”
“I really, really, really am sorry,” she said in her Instagram story.
