Kim Kardashian

Viennese 'Blackface' Guy Apologizes

I'm Not a Racist!!!

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.

Is it the black face that offends her or is it acting like Kanye that offends her?

Lets be honest. We hate Kim Kardashian. But she was probably a "crappy date" because that old, fat guy most likely expected to have Kim do to him what she did to Ray J.

I am white. And I am not a fan of either Kanye or Kim but 'black face' is disrespectful to black people. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out. It just takes a little common sense and common courtesy. Sheesh.
