Kim Kardashian, the renowned reality TV star, model, and businesswoman, is set to captivate audiences once again with her emotional revelation on an upcoming episode of "The Kardashians." In this highly anticipated episode, Kim Kardashian sheds tears while discussing her ex-husband, Ye (formerly known as Kanye West), and his troubling antisemitic behavior. As the episode unfolds, viewers witness the vulnerable side of Kim Kardashian as she opens up about her deep anguish, expressing her longing for the person Kanye used to be. This heartfelt moment showcases Kim Kardashian's resilience and her unwavering determination to reclaim the love she once shared with her former partner. "The Kardashians," a spin-off of the wildly successful "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," follows the lives of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian, as well as their half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and their mother Kris. Through her candid revelations, Kim Kardashian continues to solidify her influential presence in the entertainment industry.
A forthcoming episode of Hulu's reality series "The Kardashians" will feature a vulnerable moment as Kim Kardashian sheds tears while discussing her ex-husband, Ye (formerly known as Kanye West), and his antisemitic behavior from last year.
In a teaser for the episode, which was shown at the end of the sixth episode of the current season that aired on Thursday, Kim's sister Khloé provides comfort while she expresses her distress, stating that she is "not okay."
She reflects on the stark difference between the person she married and the person he became, expressing her longing for the Kanye she once knew and loved.
"The Kardashians" is a spin-off of the immensely popular reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," both of which revolve around the lives of the Kardashian-Jenner family. While "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" aired from 2007 to 2021 on E!, "The Kardashians" premiered on Hulu in 2022 and primarily focuses on the lives of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian, as well as their half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and their mother Kris.
The scene in question was filmed several months ago during the show's third season, around the time of Kim and Kanye's divorce finalization and when West made the aforementioned comments. However, the clip does not specify which specific antisemitic remarks Kim was reacting to.
Kim and Kanye tied the knot in 2014, and their divorce was officially concluded in November 2022. The former couple shares joint legal and physical custody of their four children.
In October, Kanye began a string of alarming antisemitic comments, including tweeting threats towards Jews and making claims about a "Jewish underground media mafia" and Jewish ownership of the Black voice. These comments resulted in suspensions from social media platforms.
Amidst the controversy, Kanye appeared on the popular podcast "Drink Champs" and arrogantly declared that his lucrative partnership with German sportswear company Adidas protected him from consequences, even if he were to make antisemitic statements.
However, facing mounting pressure, Adidas ultimately terminated its partnership with the billionaire musician, severing ties with him.
Just days prior to the Adidas fallout, right-wing activists displayed a banner on a Los Angeles overpass, praising Kanye's antisemitic comments. This prompted a wave of backlash on social media, with numerous celebrities and individuals expressing solidarity with the Jewish community.
During that time, Kim also released a statement emphasizing her stance against hate speech, without explicitly mentioning Kanye or the incident in question. She expressed solidarity with the Jewish community and called for an end to the violence and hateful rhetoric targeting them.
In November, Kanye made headlines for having a meal with former US president Donald Trump and white nationalist Nick Fuentes, a meeting widely criticized by Trump's Jewish allies and senior Republican leaders.
The same month, NBC News reported that in 2018, Kanye settled a lawsuit with a former employee who accused him of praising Hitler during meetings.
In a three-hour appearance on "InfoWars" in December, Kanye shockingly expressed his admiration for Hitler and claimed that the Nazis had "redeeming qualities."
Since Kanye initiated his tirades against Jews, the Anti-Defamation League reported numerous antisemitic incidents in the United States linked to him, including instances of assault and hate speech.
