This is why it’s important to take selfie breaks every once in a while to read the damn news. Because if Kim Kardashian did that sort of thing, she might have read about Shaun White getting in trouble for his Simple Jack Halloween costume. And she might have said to herself, “So apparently we don’t use the r-word anymore? Good to know.” But a self-obsessed fame whore never takes a break, and so up until last night, Kim casually threw around the r-word. After getting called out by people who are familiar with the current protocol on such a word (aka don’t use it), Kim is apologizing.
At a Halloween party thrown by Kendall Jenner, Kim, her best barnacle Jonathan Cheban, and several of her sisters and friends showed up. Kim and Jonathan did a couples costume together. They decided to go as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee at the 1999 MTV VMAs.
Because Kim exists almost solely on social media, she spent a good chunk of time at the party filming Instagram Stories of herself asking various people to guess her costume. No one could, except Kylie Jenner. Not getting showered with attention really kills Kim’s buzz, and TMZ says that in one of the videos, she described those who didn’t have a clue who she was as “retarded.” People flipped and called her out on her use of such a pejorative. Kim deleted the video, and issued this apology:
“I want to apologize for what I said in a recent video post that is inappropriate and insensitive to the special needs community. I try to learn from my mistakes and this is one of those times. Please know that my intention is always pure, and in this case, it was a mistake. I’m sorry.”
Kim’s apology is about 80% all about her, but it’s still an apology. And it went in a totally different direction than I thought it would. I was expecting her to cobble together some bullshit about how the word is actually French and means slow, and that since talks and thinks about as fast as a Sony Walkman with dying batteries, she’s basically reclaiming the word for herself.
The Kar-Jenners, of course, couldn’t do just one costumes. They did several. Kim, Kendall, Kylie, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian slipped into some actual Victoria’s Secret angel lingerie that VS sent them. This is how they dress normally, but okay.
Later on, Kourtney went as Ariana Grande.
Kendall went as a witch.
Kris Jenner went as a representation of her family, aka a golden false idol (sorry – Cleopatra).
Kylie had several costume changes. At the party she and her friends dressed up as The Fantanas, which look more like Faygo spokes models known as The Fay’go to the clinic, that rash might be contangious.
Before that, she dressed up as Barbie. That was obviously the hardest costume for Kylie to pull off. “I don’t know guys, it just feels weird dressing up as a white woman.”
