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.

That gown is hideous, and that stunt was just ignorant, and inappropriate on every level not mention at an opera. What kind of opera was that, A**es on Ice...

HA!! I love the picture of her and the odd looking old guy. He looks like he just zipped up from a hummer and is bragging about it, and she looks like she still has the taste of him in her mouth. We all know that she'll blow just about anyone. Didn't Kanye say she was his blow job queen?

TMZ ? Why are you calling this guy a WEIRDO just for doing his job.
He is not so weird to have apologized, USA does not understand European customs such as the Vienna Ball where there are performance artists present, your ignorant staff resorts to childish name calling . I am sure he was not trying to emulate West(whom is a weirdo!) but Lardassian saw black makeup and pulled the race card out.

Kris called in the TMZ's assassins to start the racism rant they are famous for to get back at the Old Fool for calling Kim out for welching on their deal.....He paid her 500.00 to be his "escort" and she started to immediately not doing what she was paid to do....Not doing the press conference ...part of the deal....going off to film for her show instead of doing the publicity he had scheduled....etc.....Yes he was pissed and I just bet he let her know he was by the look on her face as they entered the ball ......and I also know Kris and Kim never intended to stay at the ball any longer then it took to take photos and film a few scenes for her show then she " got insulted and walked out" ....
Idiot Old Fool got Conned and used by the Kobra Queen of Hollywood and her Princess of Piss......
So Rant away TMZ after all thats what the Kobra Queen is paying you for.....!

Kim is probably hired this person to crash the party to keep Kanye and herself in the media news.
