Kim Kardashian says she’s not homophobic because ‘all her best friends are gay’

“I support the community, I love the community, they love me.”

Kim Kardashian has claimed that she is not homophobic because all her “best friends are gay”.

The American socialite faced criticism last week from the LGBTQ community when she had a few choice words for Tyson Beckford.

The feud first started when the 47-year-old model and actor left a comment on a photo of Kim uploaded by another account on Instagram, where he body-shamed her and used the green vomiting emoji.

“Sorry I don’t care for it personally,” he wrote. “She is not real, doctor fucked up on her right hip.”

While Tyson’s comment was definitely uncalled for, Kim’s response to his insult was equally tone deaf, as she appeared to insinuate that the only reason he’s not interested in her is because he’s gay and living in the closet.

“Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,” she wrote alongside the tea and nails emoji.

In a recent interview with Real 92.3’s Big Boy, Kim dismissed the homophobic criticism and hit out at Tyson for his comments.

She said: “Really, dude? Like, you’re going to body-shame me? Like, okay. Okay. Okay, sis.

“People were sending me stuff on his page, he keeps on going and going and going, and I’m just like, ‘dude, that’s so female lame to me.’”

Kim added: “And for anyone to say that I am homophobic with the comment of saying sis? All my best friends are gay, I support the community, I love the community, they love me, that has nothing to do with this.”
