Katie Couric to Kim K.

I'm Sawwwy

Katie Couric insists her baby gift to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West was not a fake Hollywood gesture -- and says her comments about Kim's family were taken out of context.

Kim put Katie on blast today when she Instagrammed a pic of Katie's gift and card with the hashtag #IHateFakeMediaFriends.

Kim was pissed because Katie recently said in an interview that she didn't understand why the Kardashians are famous.

Now Katie's explaining the comment, saying ... "I've met Kim before and I think she's a really sweet person.  I was responding to a reporter's question, and explaining how I'm intrigued by the public's fascination with her family."

She added, "I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings."

As for the gift, Katie says ... "The gift is genuine, and I'm happy for Kim and Kanye."

We're guessing Katie can still expect something in the mail.

Why back down to THEM? she didn't say anything mean or wrong...just what everyone on earth thinks. Why are these people so touchy when someone asks why they're famous?...it's almost as if they have a sense of entitlement ..they somehow feel they deserve to be famous and fawned over.

Don't back down, Katie. We don't know why they're famous either. Pretty much anyone can film themselves having sex. Doesn't take that much talent.

Katie the Koward. Why do people always use the excuse that their comments were taken out of contents, or blame editing? Why can't they just stand by what they say and gain the respect of those who agree with them or take the heat from those who disagree?

That is the Problem with Journalist, The Kardashian are fake, but so are the so called respected journalist like Katie Couric and Barbra Walters.

Kim K. should know how to accept a gift graciously and move on. Money can't buy you class...or manners.

Why does a woman of class like Katie Couric send a present to the Trash KimKanye? They are too low class to get anyone with class, period!!

Katie DON"T you dare apologize to Kim for your honest comment. NONE of us know why the Kardashian's are famous. You didn't say anything hurtful or insulting. You were asked a question & you answered it honestly. So if Kim can't handle it and then BLASTS you on social media over it (instead of I don't know asking you in person or telling you btw that hurt my feelings) maybe she's the #FakeMediaFriend. Seriously you are a reporter & have done a lot in your life to prove you deserve what you have worked HARD for. What have these clowns done except a porno & try to get as much attention for themselves by throwing anyone and everyone under the bus. Yea Katie I'm a little disappointed in you for backing down to them. There was no reason for the apology

I'm guessing this "apology" from Katie is something fresh from the desk of Kris Jenner. This is being done to make it seem as if KC is "caving in" to Kim.
.
I doubt very much Katie said anything at all. The Trash-Kanians will stop at NOTHING to make themselves look better then others.
