Kim Kardashian Apologizes for Defending Jeffree Star
Kim Kardashian's taking a second look at her defense of Jeffree Star, and has apologized for swooping in to justify the makeup artist's troubling history.
Kardashian first defended Star in a series of Snapchat videos Monday (August 14), during which she said that she was willing to move on from Star's past of issuing racist and hateful rhetoric because she had noticed a change in him ("Guys, I see you being so petty and bringing up things in [Star's] past where he was negative, but he has also apologized for those things," she noted).
Welp, the internet wasn't too happy with Kim's seemingly shortsighted tone, and after sensing outrage among her followers, Kim conceded in a new series of videos that she may have jumped the gun.

"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 in several Snapchat videos. "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 don't really feel like I have the right to speak on that. ... I really am sorry and I just want to move forward and be positive."
