Racist Kim Kardashian Tweet Brands Nigerian Women ‘Apes’ [Hoaxed]


Yesterday, Kim Kardashian tweeted that Nigeria is a “disgusting country” and that their women “look like apes.” Naturally, the tweet inspired a deluge of criticism among her 18 million followers, with death threats pouring in immediately. Even if Kim Kardashian is that ignorant, how could she be so stupid?

Well, that’s just it. She wasn’t.

Kim K’s racist tweet didn’t originate on her account. It’s a Photoshopped fake from this idiot.

As you can see, he’s definitely proud of himself. Though he’s gotten plenty hate for the forgery, he has actually curried a disturbing amount of support as well.

Kim herself took to her Twitter account to set the record straight, condemning the Photoshopped tweet and apologizing to anyone who was offended.

Kim Kardashian’s stock is pretty low around my water cooler, but I have to hand it to her for dealing with the dust-up like a champ. Fan of the Kardashians or not, targeting her like that and then gloating over it is pretty low, and doesn’t fit any definition of “social prank” we at Social News Daily hold dear.

So don’t worry, friends. Kim Kardashian (and Lord Disick, we might add) are not racists who think that Nigerian women look like “apes.” It was just some guy looking to boost his social credibility with the cheapest trick in the book. We recommend not following him to flame him. If you want to crusade for social good, just flag his profile.
