Kim Kardashian Apologises For Using R-Word Slur Over Pamela Anderson Costume
The 38-year-old snapped when people didn't recognise her outfit...
Kim Kardashian has never been a stranger to controversy but recently everything she and husband Kanye West does finds trouble.
The reality TV superstar celebrated Halloween with approximately 286180 costumes this year, dressing up as Victoria's Secret Angels with her sisters and then as Pamela Anderson for Kendall Jenner's party.
Accompanied by Jonathan Cheban as Tommy Lee, Kim posted a series of videos to Instagram Stories expressing how pissed off she was because no one at Kendall's party knew who she was.
The 38-year-old mother-of-three shared multiple videos of her asking partygoers who she was dressed up as, including Jaden Smith and Harry Hudson, close friends of Kendall's.
"Nobody knows who we are here," she said in quickly-deleted videos. "You guys are all too fucking young, this is so sad. You fucking don't know."
Then, speaking to former assistant Steph Shep, she said "nobody knows who I am, yeah. Retarded."
Oh, Kim. The moment was shared on her social media and, for obvious reasons, immediately attracted backlash, with many fans commenting that it's inappropriate to use that word in the way that she meant it.
By now we should all really know better than to use that word at all really, never mind synonymously to dumb or stupid, and especially over Halloween costumes. To quote the Kardashians themselves, "it's not that serious."
While Pamela Anderson publicly praised Kim's costume on Instagram, she is reportedly unhappy about her name being involved with the slur after finding out what Kim said.
“Pam is upset that Kim used the R word while dressed as her for Halloween," a source revealed. "[She] was flattered that Kim dressed as her for Halloween [...] but was also really disappointed by her insensitivity."
Kim has addressed the incident and issued an apology, stating "I want to apologize for what I said in a recent video post that is inappropriate and insensitive to the special needs community. I try to learn from my mistakes and this is one of those times. Please know that my intention is always pure, and in this case, it was a mistake. I’m sorry."
