Kim Kardashian tearfully discusses Kanye West’s anti-Semitic social media posts

Last year, when Kanye West made anti-Semitic comments, Kim Kardashian didn’t speak out publicly against him. Now, we’re getting a glimpse into how she was feeling at the time.

In the newest episode of The Kardashians, Kim tearfully admits to her sister Khloe that she’s “not OK” with who Kanye has become.

“It’s really confusing for me that it’s so different than the person that I married because that’s who I loved and that’s who I remember,” the reality star says, adding: “I’ll do anything to get that person back.”

After West posted a series of anti-Semitic remarks last year, Kardashian didn’t mention her husband by name, but did share a post supporting the Jewish community.

Meanwhile, West didn’t back down, repeating his comments in interviews and eventually losing multiple brand partnerships.

“I feel so bad for him,” Kim says in a scene filmed at the time, which airs this week. “I don’t even think he feels bad for himself because I don’t even know if he knows how. I just feel so bad.”

She added that she wasn’t going to get in contact with him about the controversy, saying “he’ll probably go off on me”.

“I feel guilty that I posted something in support of the Jewish community, then people dropped him today,” she added. “Is that my fault? That I posted that? And did that push them? And I should have just kept quiet? But I’m vocal about everything else … I never know what to do.”

The couple, who split in 2021, share four kids. Kim recognises the hardest part of this whole situation is the children that tie her to West.

“I’m so angry, but I’m also so sad,” she reveals in a confessional. “Your instinct wants to be like, ‘Wow, I can never talk to this person again,’ but then you think of your babies. I’m having a hard time figuring it out.”

Khloé also shared her thoughts on the situation, confirming that none of them share Ye’s views. “Watching Ye is like watching a car crash in slow motion,” she said. “None of us share these antisemitic views. We think it’s gravely irresponsible. We’re all very aware of the following that Kanye has, and how his words can be used to rile people up.”

West has since reportedly married an employee from his company, Australian Yeezy designer Bianca Censori in an intimate ceremony, and has remained out of the public eye.

Kim has previously said she thinks her ex-husband needs to “hit rock bottom” in order to understand the impact of his actions.

“I used to run around and call everyone behind his back, and be like, ‘It’s gonna be OK, it’s gonna be OK, don’t worry. Just give him another chance,'” she reflected in an episode of The Kardashians. “I used to spend hours and hours and hours of my day to be the clean-up crew. I just don’t have that energy.”
