Kim Kardashian recalls ‘hysterically crying’ over Kanye West’s slavery comments

The reality star's husband caused controversy during an interview with TMZ


Kim Kardashian has recalled the time she rushed home “hysterically crying”, after her husband’s controversial TMZ interview.

On Sunday’s season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the reality star opens up about the shocking interview, in which he made controversial comments about slavery.

In a teaser clip for the episode, Kim’s BFF Jonathan Cheban asks her, “Umm, how’s Kanye doing?”

The mother-of-three replies, “He’s doing good; everyone thinks he’s having a breakdown.”

When asked how she reacted when she watched the interview, Kim said, “I rushed home, I was hysterically crying… So I go home… and he’s totally fine.”

The KUWTK star went on to explain that Kanye “can’t control what he says” when he gets ramped up.

In her camera confessional, Kim also notes, “Kanye’s ‘slavery’ comment – he never said that. That was just the headline.”

“If you listen to what he said, he said, ‘Slavery was 400 years, if it’s gonna be another 400 years, that sounds like a choice to me.'”


“He didn’t say slavery is a choice, he was saying if you’re gonna still be enslaved for another 400 years than that’s some bulls**t.”

She explained, “I always know what Kanye’s intentions are and what he’s trying to say, but I also know that they’re gonna write a headline and people are gonna assume that that’s exactly what you said and what you meant.”

“That, as a wife, is really frustrating to see the media take everything and run with it,” Kim concludes.
