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.

AwwReally?    

How do you act like Kanye? Scream, rant and attack the paps? And Kim, have never seen "Indecent Proposal"? None of the articles said the "date" was for a $500K donation to charity, what did she think the man was expecting?

I don't care how much money these grifter's have...they are, and will always be, low class trash. PMK whored out her prized pig and it went poorly..boo hoo. And by the way PMK...your face is melting.

What was she expecting? He was paying her half a million to be his escort. I'm surprised she even did it, you are engaged and have a child. Do appearances not being an date to some skeevy pervert old man who probably gets blow jobs from barely legal teens.

This thing is nothing but fodder for their scripted, trashy, fake show. The whole thing from Kimmode being invited to the Austrian ball to the guy saying Kimmode wasn't upholding her end of the bargain to the black face guy. It is all for their upcoming episode. Nothing but scripted drama.

I don't get how Kim gets more offended by this stuff then actual black people. She seen the response from the first one and now everyone is a racist. Just glad people r pointing out the real story here, she's a high paid escort. Congrats Kanye, ur mom would have been so proud.

Really..500K wouldn't even put a dent in her piggy bank. Not just that..she is just a slut who wants more money. donate some of that money to charities or something. You have everything coming to you that you deserve. karma is a bi*** just like Kim!

The most disturbing part of The KardAssian Circus is they dragged the poor baby North-West from NYC->Paris->Austria straight flights in the same clothes with no rest or change, still wearing that bear suit in Austria.
