Kim Kardashian

Viennese 'Blackface' Guy Apologizes

I'm Not a Racist!!!

breaking news

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.

Kim, you are a joke. You are a laughing stock to everyone, no talent, no looks, short, fat. Your not even as talented as Anna Nicole. At least Anna had a personality.

I think this is possibly one of the ugliest dresses I have ever since-Kim is about 5'3" at the most-She has huge breast and a booty that is sizable as well. She cannot pull any of this fashionista runway (questionable) clothing off..and who did design this mess??

Meanwhile not a word on TMZ about KUWTK losing 1/2 million viewers per week- an exclusive from RO. PMK probably wouldn't let Harvey run that story.

For those saying white people are more racist than Arabs, you clearly have never been black in UAE many of them refer to all blacks as "a bed" meaning slave, they are literally the most racist group out there, some of them aren't but they don't even invite black men into their homes. I am totally not surprised about this dudes black face, they even have black face cartoons in Arab television. Who runs the cocoa trade in 2014? Arabs. Who do they enslave? Blacks. Oh and by they way slavery still exists, there's sex/human trafficking, diamond, gold and cocoa plantation slaves as well and racially motivated incarceration.

@Truth Is... Blacks enslaved their own people first and then sold them to whites. Blacks are not the only race that have experienced slavery. Whites as well as every other race have been slaves at one point in history. Blacks need to stop playing the victim and start taking responsibility and do something for themselves. Whites, Hispanics, Asians and Indians don't have a problem working and thriving as a race but for some reason Blacks just can't get over the hurdle of themselves. Real Talk....

This proves the black man is the only race hated on Earth.

In this same country this happened they have laws against denying the holohoax. And against saluting one of the greatest white men who ever lived (Adolf Hitler).

This also proves that Jews control the world and that the holohoax never existed.

The fact that there were two different comedians there trying to make racist innuendo jokes at her makes it seem like a set up. I think they did it on purpose to try to get a rise out of her. They probably think that is funny or comedy. Where she comes from ,that is cause for her husband to fly into a rage and attack someone.

I think it is even weird that she was paid money to attend a ball with an old man when she has Kanye at home. I think they were trying to act like Kanye was out of the picture.

She obviously wants Kanye in the picture because she even brought her mother on the date. I think considering their history, the Austrians and Germans should watch themselves. It wasn't that long ago that their people set out to wipe out the black race along with many others.

I Really don't care what the Kardashian's do but if you pay someone to be your date isn't that prostitution? Not only that but don't they make enough money that they shouldn't have to prostitute themselves? Again I don't care what they do but couldn't they do something good with all the money they have, like donate to cancer research or something? I mean really how much money do these people have?
