The weirdo who came up to Kim Kardashian in blackface at the Vienna Opera Ball -- pretending to be Kanye West -- now claims the entire encounter was a misunderstanding ... insisting he's NOT a racist ... and didn't mean to offend her.

Chris Stephan -- a stand-up comedian in Austria -- just posted the apology on his Facebook, saying he's "incredibly sorry" things unfolded the way they did. He says he's of Arab descent himself, and never intended to be racist.

As we reported, Kim stormed out of the fancy pants ball yesterday after Stephan came up to her in black face make-up, acting like Kanye.

Kim was paid $500,000 to be the guest of Austrian businessman Richard Lugner at the event. Lugner later said Kim was a crappy date.

I'm not a fan of Kim's. But she was 100% right for leaving the ball. Don't disrespect her fiancee like that and expect everything to be OK.

If she wants respect for her fiance she shouldn't have gone out with an 80 year old dude to a social event just for money!!!!! She is embarrassing Kanye even worst when she goes as an escort for money!!! I think one of kanye's car is worth 500k !!! She doesnt need the money !!! Why go there as an escort!!! I understand that maybe from someone with money problems but Kanye and her have millions!!! Super rich ppl in need of more money??? Why ?? Trying to add the elite and royals of Europe to their friend's list ?? This family has no values.

What did Lugner expect? He hired a fat, ugly, no-talent married woman for a date.
