Kim Kardashian Defends Jeffree Star’s Racist Past After He Criticizes Her KKW Beauty Swatches

Kim Kardashian and Jeffree Star

A twist!

If you followed along with Kim Kardashian West‘s Snapchat on Monday, the reality star gave everyone a first look at KKW Beauty‘s new contour palettes — and influencer Jeffree Star (and everyone else, TBH) was NOT impressed!

After the beauty vlogger criticized the 36-year-old’s “rough” swatching technique on Twitter, a full out feud between their two fandoms erupted on social media. Catching wind of everything going on, Kimmie took to Snap to ask her followers to lay off Jeffree — despite his racist past.

The KUWTK star said:

“Guys, I see that my fans are totally hating on someone like Jeffree Star for being, you know honest about my struggle swatches. But because of his remarks I’m learning from the best, like from Mario, how to swatch properly.”


“I see [my fans] being so petty bringing up things from his past where he, you know, 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 will give them the benefit of the doubt. I welcome honest, you know, comments about my product and because of it I’m swatching better now. So everyone get off his ass, and lets not be so negative. We’re all in this together, there’s room for all of us. Love you, Jeffree!”

The TV personality also clarified that she does not support racism, she just believes in second chances:

“I want to make one last thing clear, I do not defend people that are racist and I am very against it. But if someone claims that they have changed, I would love to give them the benefit of the doubt, and I pray to God that they do change for the sake of my children and my friends.”

Jeffree responded to Kim standing up for him by tweeting:

“The fact that someone like @KimKardashian can understand and take real feedback is what a REAL boss bitch does. Love you”

After all the drama subsided, KKW pressed on as normal in a skin-tight sparkly bodysuit:

Crisis averted. Kinda.

She still got DRAGGED on social media for defending him!
