Kim Kardashian

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.

When in Rome... In Europe we dont know much of the things that consist racism in USA... so they are not universal, many if not most of them refer to the USA history and culture... I also have no idea why would black face be offensive... Kim does it all the time :D she screwed the Ball up, no 2 ways about it.

When you're paid to be an escort, you have to expect some *******, either verbal or actual semen to end up in your face.

The key word is she got paid. She should have finished her date, that's what she was paid for. It's a different country and there are different rules. Shame on Kim for once again acting like a diva.

It never ceases to amaze me that only white people can be racist. It is the biggest crock of **** out there. The biggest double standard ever. It's just completely wacked.

Looks like Kanye to me. Did he impregnate her mouth too?
It's funny when she decides to have some self respect.

They are a laughing stock! Every one makes fun of this couple. That's what they don't get. She's a professional prostitute and he is a gay fish rapper. So, just deal with it. Seriously!
