This isn’t really a “pre-Oscar event” but we finally got the photos in, so I thought we should discuss it. As it turns out, Kim Kardashian really was accosted by a “comedian” wearing blackface at the Vienna Opera Ball. Like, she was telling the truth and there are photos to prove it. Does that make me feel differently about Kim? I mean, she was still at the Opera Ball as an escort, because she was getting paid $500,000 by Richard Lugner. So, it’s not all “poor Kim.” But I think we can give her a pass on freaking out when a comedian in blackface came up to her and started screaming that he was Kanye West. THAT is extremely offensive.
We have all of these photos now from the Opera Ball, and it seems like “comedian Chris Stephan” wore blackface to the ball and posed for photos and everything. According to TMZ, Chris has already issued an apology on his Facebook. TMZ says: “Chris Stephan — a stand-up comedian in Austria — just posted the apology on his Facebook, saying he’s ‘incredibly sorry’ things unfolded the way they did. He says he’s of Arab descent himself, and never intended to be racist.” Wow, Austria has “accidental racists” too.
Oh, and here’s the moment (THIS WAS ON CAMERA) when some dude “joked” that he was going to dance when they played “N—gas in Vienna”. As in, he actually dropped the n-word in front of Kim and Kris Jenner. Lucifer’s Homegirl laughs like it’s funny but Kim’s Botox-face is all “Jesus take the wheel.”
Why was this event such a catastrophe? Even people who loathe the Kardashians have to admit that this is nowhere near Kim’s fault. It’s like all of these people were like, “OMG, she’s engaged to a black guy, let’s be crazy-racist about it, for jokes.”
Also: Lucifer’s Homegirl is incredibly smug in these photos. It’s like she thinks SHE is getting $500,000 to be an escort. Either that or she’s so proud that she raised a daughter worth $500,000 for a night. And as I see more angles on Kim’s dress, I hate it even more. Kim needs to learn how to wear clothes in her real size.
