Fans accusing Kim K of homophobia after she clapped back at Tyson Beckford for calling her fake
Kim Kardashian is known for many things: her infamous sex tape, her near-constant nudity, and, of course, her iconic figure. However, it's become no secret in recent years that her famous booty and bust aren't entirely natural.
On the contrary, it's long been suspected that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been making frequent trips to the surgeon in order to maintain her trademark look - but she has always denied this. Really, though, you only have to look at certain pictures of her to work out that she got that bod with a bit of medical intervention.
Just take a look at this recent snap, for example, in which Kim's right hip seems to be a totally different size and shape to her left.
Lots of fans noticed the apparent disproportions - including actor and model, Tyson Beckford. In the comments below the post, Beckford said that her cosmetic surgeon had clearly "f**ked up on her right hip", and that he "[doesn't] care for" her look.
As mean as those comments may have been (like, seriously dude, just keep your opinions to yourself), he might actually have gotten away with them if they hadn't been screencapped and posted by another Insta account, "The Shade Room".
Kim then came across his shady dig (even though she wasn't tagged, which means she probably searched her own name) and fired back with her own comment.
"Sis we all know why you don't care for it," she said, with the implication being that Beckford is gay.
The thing is: as far as anyone knows, Beckford isn't gay. He was previously married to a woman and has only ever publicly had relationships with women. So, basically, Kim was only using homosexuality as an insult... which is super homophobic.
And fans were not happy about it.
"Kim is not even remotely funny. Not sure why she would insinuate Tyson is gay just because he said her hips are lopsided," tweeted one person.
"Kim Kardashian, you're questioning Tyson Beckford's sexuality, like being 'gay' is something evil," said another. "How about you worry about your husband mental health because you should be more concerned about his well being than if someone is gay. The nerve of this woman. Not today Kimberly."
Beckford didn't respond to Kim's homophobic insult but instead updated his Insta story to say that his opinion on women who have plastic surgery is universal, and does not just apply to KKW.
Needless to say, both Beckford and Kim were needlessly shady with their comments. Beckford shouldn't be body shaming anybody - especially not on a public forum where anyone else can join in, and Kim certainly should know better than to throw around terms which imply that being gay is somehow a negative quality.
Basically, guys, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
