Kim Kardashian has denied she’s homophobic by saying ‘all my best friends are gay’.
She was responding to the criticism of her after she clapped back to Tyson Beckford.
‘Sis we all know why you don’t care for it’
Suggesting the star has had plastic surgery, Tyson wrote: ‘She is not real, doctor fucked up her right hip’, followed by a vomit emoji.
He later added: ‘Sorry I don’t care for it personally.’
Kim replied by commenting on Instagram: ‘Sis we all know why you don’t care for it.’
She also included a frog emoji, referencing the Kermit meme, and the pink nail painting emoji.
Speaking to Big Boy on Real 92.3, Kim explained why she doesn’t regret her clapback.
She said: ‘Really, dude? Like, you’re going to body-shame me? Like, ok. Ok. Ok, sis.
‘People were sending me stuff on his page, he keeps going and going and going.
‘I’m just like, dude, that’s so female lame to me. That’s just so lame to me.’
Kim added: ‘And for anyone to say that I am homophobic with the comment of saying sis?
‘All my best friends are gay. I support the community. I love the community. They love me. That has nothing to do with this.’
Beckford has also responded to the clapback.
In an Instagram post, since deleted, he wrote: ‘I’m not gay’.
Posting a pic of him working out to Instagram, the actor said: ‘Train 5-6 days a wk,weights Martial Arts and Firearms and I defend those who can’t defend themselves!’
He furthermore added: ‘I support LGBTQ, even though I’m not Gay. It’s just the Human thing to do [sic].’
A representative for Tyson declined to comment on the story when approached by Gay Star News.
‘No one is saying that we shouldn’t also body shame women’
Meanwhile Kim’s sister Khloe has been quoted on the feud in a new interview.
Speaking to Extra she said: ‘I was with her when that was going on.
‘What I hate is that people are saying that she is homophobic for that, but no one is saying that we shouldn’t also body shame women.’
On the subject of whether Kim is homophobic, Khloe said: ‘She is anything but. It’s ridiculous.’
Tyson has acted in Into the Blue and Supermodel. He also appeared as Britney Spears’ love interest in the video for Toxic in 2004.
