Khloe Kardashian Publicly Blasts Kanye West, Pleads With Him to ‘Stop Tearing Kimberly Down’
Khloe Kardashian has had enough of Kanye West's negative narratives when it comes to her family.
Over the last few days, Kanye West has been getting backlash over a 'White Lives Matter' shirt that he designed and produced for his surprise Yeezy fashion show during Paris Fashion Week.
Conservative influencer Candace Owens was seen wearing one of the tees along with Ye in a photo that the controversial political commentator posted to her official Twitter account.
One of the first prominent critics of Kanye West's "White Live Matter" t-shirts being paraded down a runway was 'Vogue' fashion editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson who expressed her disgust for the shirt while attending the Yeezy event.
Johnson called the move "incredibly irresponsible" and "dangerous" in an Instagram story she posted in real-time while taking in the fashion show.
Kanye West would go on to publicly mock Johnson on social media for her criticism of his "White Lives Matter" shirts in a series of since-deleted posts, including shots at her physical appearance.
There were many in the fashion world, including Gigi Hadid, Vogue Magazine, and others, who swiftly came to the defense of Johnson as she was being bullied by Kanye on Instagram.
Eventually, Kanye would return to social media to let his followers know that he met with Gabriella, starting his all-caps post with "GAB IS MY SISTER" before giving his side of what happened at their alleged sit down.
On Wednesday (Oct 5.) Kanye made another post on his Instagram account; this time publicly wondering how some of his critics over the Gabriella-White Lives Matter fallout felt about the situation where Kanye alleged that he wasn't invited to his daughter's birthday party.
He went on to ask where the same people who attacked his "White Lives Matter" shirt were when claimed to not know where his child was on her birthday, adding that "Candace Owens was the only public figure to say that it was wrong for the Kardashians to keep him from seeing his daughter."
A response from Khloe Kardashian's verified Instagram account slammed Kanye for his continued criticism of her family admitting that she was trying to be respectful, but since Kanye continued to "do this on social media" then she made the choice to address it publicly as well.
In a very collected message, Khloe pleaded with Kanye to "stop tearing Kimberly down" and "using her family" when he wants to "deflect."
She also pointed out that Kim is taking care of their children "80% of the time" and begged him to leave them out of his online rants so "that the kids can be raised peacefully."
Kanye posted a screengrab of Kardashian's response on his Instagram account, calling her a liar.
While reactions were mixed in response to Kanye and Khloe's back and forth, there was a large number of people who advised Kanye to honor Khloe's request with some even suggesting a break from social media given his recent rants against Adidas, GAP, Trevor Noah, and anyone else he has set his sights on in recent weeks.
Will Khloe's comment cut through and resonate with Kanye? Part of me thinks that by him acknowledging her in the way that he did, he has at least received the message loud and clear.
Also, Kanye has defended Kim publicly many times asking people to avoid disrespecting the mother of his children, regardless of whatever turmoil he may have been going through with her at that given moment—so we'll see how this ends up.
As far as his situation with Gabriella Karefa-Johnson goes, she just posted the following message on her Instagram story.
While Kanye West is still wildly successful and still has plenty of fans, it's no secret that he has lost a lot more supporters than he has gained in recent years due to his erratic behavior and no shortage of controversy.
I guess the question is does he care and what will he have to lose until he does?
