Kim Kardashian has broken down in tears after Kanye West made a string of antisemitic outbursts.
West was widely criticised for his string of antisemitic outbursts in a series of offensive incidents late last year. In a series of tirades that saw the rapper lose endorsement deals with Adidas, Balenciaga and Gap, he made a series of threats, saying he would go "death con three" on Jews.
During an interview with US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, he also praised Adolf Hitler and admitted he "sees good things" in the Nazi leader.
Hate speech is never OK or excusable. I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.— Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) October 24, 2022
At the time, Kardashian as well as several of her family members issued statements indirectly condemning his behaviour.
Khloe Kardashian was the first member of the reality-famous family to take a stand against the US rapper’s anti-Jew rants.
The reality TV star reposted to her quarter of billion followers an Instagram graphic produced by Jessica Seinfeld, wife of the sitcom creator, which read: “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people.” which was subsequently
West’s ex-wife recorded a short clip for an upcoming episode of the reality show, The Kardashians. In the clip which was published last night, Kim is seen crying into the arms of her sister Khloe Kardashian.

In the clip, Khloe asked her: “You okay?". 42-year-old Kim responded: "Not okay." Clearly overwhelmed with emotion, the mother-of-four was then comforted by her younger sibling.
In a separate video confessional, she said: “Kanye's so different than the person that I married.
“That's who I loved, and that's who I remember. I'll do anything to get that person back."
Kim went on to say: "Sometimes I feel like if he hits rock bottom, that's his own path to figure out. I used to reach out to everyone behind his back, telling them it'll be okay, giving him another chance. But I just don't have that energy anymore."
The clips do not specifically mention Kim's breakdown was a consequence of West’s attacks online. However, the timing of his outbursts last year lined up with the show's filming.
Last week, in an interview with Vogue Italia, Kim also shared her journey of rediscovering herself and finding strength after her divorce from West last year. She said: "I feel like a whole new person. My previous confidence relied heavily on having a partner whose opinion I valued. But now, I'm at a point where I want to do what's right for me."
