WATCH: Kim Kardashian Responds To Allegations Of 'Blackface'

9 November 2017, 10:38

The reality TV star was recently accused of racism.

Kim Kardashian has responded to allegations of using 'blackface' to promote her cosmetics line.

The mother-of-two faced backlash earlier this year after she shared a photo of herself promoting a new product from 'KKW Beauty'.

Soon after the image surfaced, users began accusing the star of 'blackface' and cultural appropriation after pointing out that her skin looked darker than usual.

In a new teaser for 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', a clearly-upset Kim addressed the saga.

"People are saying I'm doing blackface," the social media star said.

"I did a photoshoot, there were some people online saying the photos were inappropriate," she explained, before asking her assistant, "What do you do? It's already out."

"I am nervous just because I've been slowly taking my time to come back," she adds - the allegations erupted in the months following her infamous Paris robbery.

"It's hard for me to get back out there."

Kim previously addressed the controversy earlier this year, claiming she "would obviously never want to offend anyone."

Last week, Kim faced separate allegations of racism after dressing up as the late singers Aaliyah and Selena Quintanilla for Halloween.

Soon after posting the images, fans took to social media to slam the makeup mogul for her 'offensive' outfit choices.

"Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you’re not. It’s offensive and you shouldn’t push this limit, but ok…" wrote one user. 

Kim, who is currently expecting her third child with husband Kanye West via a surrogate, made a separate public apology following the claims.
