Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is catching some serious heat. The hip-hop wife has received some backlash after using the term “retarded” in a now-viral Halloween video toward partygoers.
On Thursday, Kim K issued a statement to let fans know she made a mistake and meant no offense.
Kim has apologized for using the word, telling us, “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.” (TMZ)
In the Instagram Story clip, Kardashian refers to people as “retarded” for not realizing she dressed up as veteran supermodel Pamela Anderson for Halloween.
While in conversation with her former assistant and current confidant Stephanie Shepherd, Kardashian tells her, “Nobody knows who I am. Yeah! Retarded.” Kardashian also expressed, in another video clip, directly to her followers that it was “so sad” that “nobody knew who we were” because they were “too f-cking young” to register the reference. (Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee originally wore these outfits to the 1999 Video Music Awards.) (W Magazine)
According to reports, the festivities went down last night at Kendall Jenner‘s crib.
