Kim Kardashian Aaliyah Halloween Costume

Some fans are seriously unimpressed by her throwback outfit...


Kim Kardashian has responded after her Aaliyah-themed Halloween outfit was branded as "racist" by some fans on social media.

The 37-year-old reality star took to her website to issue an official apology to everyone she offended.

"Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend," Kim wrote to her fans

"I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone. When I was creating the costume, I wasn't dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire."

She continued: "I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists. For me, it's always about love and respect. I loved that Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of her costumes, and that my son was Axl Rose. We don't see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect— it's that simple!"

Kim Kardashian has been branded as “racist” by some fans over her Aaliyah-themed Halloween costume.

The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star, who had three different outfits this year, angered people with her decision to dress up as the late singer from her iconic ‘Try Again’ video.

“Baby girl Aaliyah,” she captioned the video.

Wearing a silver chained bra and choker, with leather trousers and a brunette wig, Kim attempted to channel Aaliyah.

However some people have taken to social media to label Kim Kardashian’s Halloween outfit as “racist”.

However others have taken to Kim’s defence, claiming the outfit wasn’t racist at all. 

Aaliyah infamously died in a freak plane accident in the Bahamas in 2001. 

This year Kim Kardashian also dressed up as Cher and Madonna.
