WATCH: Kim Kardashian West defends her homophobic clapback for Tyson Beckford
Kim Kardashian West seems pretty pleased with herself even after her recent clapback for Tyson Beckford left some people feeling offended.
Last week, a paparazzi picture of Kardashian wearing black velour leggings and a tiny crop top was posted online. The photo was taken while she was heading to a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live in Los Angeles, and fans quickly noted that former male fashion model, Beckford, had a lot to say about her appearance.
“Sorry. I don’t care for it personally,” Beckford commented. Adding “She’s not real, doctorf**ked up on her right hip.”
Adding insult to injury the male model also added a green vomit emoji.
Popular urban gossip site The Shade Room shared the comments on its Instagram page, which allowed Kim (and its 13.6 million followers) to see Beckford’s unfiltered thoughts.
Kardashian clapped back by insinuating that the Into The Blue actor doesn’t find her attractive because he is gay.
“Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,” she wrote.
During a recent radio interview with Big Boi on Real 92.3, she doubled down on her comments that called Beckford’s sexuality into question.
“Really, dude? Like — you’re gonna body shame me? Okay…okay sis,” she said. “You’re gonna body shame me? When I choose to clap back,it’s like I don’t do it to people that I know are just looking for the come up. Just looking to clout-chase. That is like the most annoying thing.”
While some folks feel Kim had every right to go after the male model, it’s pretty clear she tried to “out” him and even if she was kidding, the statement certainly used homosexuality as a put down. Not cool.
Beckford responded with a social media post confirming he isn’t gay, but still supports the LGBTQ community.
“Train 5-6 days a wk,(sic) weights Martial Arts and Firearms and I defend those who can’t defend themselves!” he wrote. “I support LGBTQ ️, even though I’m not Gay. It’s just the Human thing to do.”
