Khloé Kardashian is defending her sister Kim Kardashian against accusations that she’s homophobic after her comments about Tyson Beckford caused side-eyes across the internet.
But before we get to Khloé’s comments, here’s a quick refresher on what went down with Kim and Tyson. Basically, the model posted a body-shaming comment about Kim on Instagram, saying “Sorry I don’t care for it personally. She is not real, doctor fucked up on her right hip.”
Kim’s response? Rather than simply put Tyson in his place, she implied that he’s gay—and fans were quick to accuse her of homophobia.
Kim hasn’t responded to the backlash about her comment, but her sister Khloé had some thoughts, telling Extra “I was with her when that was going on … what I hate is that people are saying that she’s homophobic for that, but no one is saying that we shouldn’t also body shame woman.”
“I don’t know if people are saying that about him,” Khloé continued, “but I just know people are attacking Kim about being homophobic, I’m like she’s anything but, so that’s ridiculous … I was asked to not jump in, ‘cause I think that would have made it worse.”
