Kim Kardashian has apologised to her fans after she defended Jeffree Star, who has made racist comments in the past.
The drama first started when makeup vlogger Jeffree called out Kim for incorrectly swatching products from her KKW Beauty line – which caused her fans to attack him online.
However, Kim took to Snapchat on Monday to defend Jeffree, and told fans to leave him alone and “get over” the racist statements he has made in the past.
“Guys, I see you being so petty bringing up things in his past where he was negative, but he’s also apologised for those things,” she said on Snapchat, “And I get it’s a serious deal if you say racial things, but I do believe in people changing.”

Naturally, Kim’s comments didn’t go down well, and the mother-of-two was accused of playing down the impact of racism.
On Tuesday, the 34-year-old took to Snapchat to apologise for her comments.
“So I really wanted to apologise to you guys and my fans for defending a situation yesterday that I really didn’t know enough about.
“I just feel a bit naive, and I do want to really apologise for me feeling like I had the right to say ‘get over it’ in a situation that involves racism. I just don’t really feel like I have the right to speak on that, and I really, really, really am sorry.
“From the bottom of my heart, I’ve always been about positivity and I’ve never been a negative person, so my whole thing was: ‘Hey guys, I don’t want to see negativity in my timeline or my mentions, let’s just move forward – let’s be positive and move past this’,” she stressed.
