Kim Kardashian Apologizes For Aaliyah Costume

Kim Kardashian got raked over the coals for her Aaliyah costume on Halloween.

Now, she’s issuing an apology (under protest) to those she may have offended and she’s offering an explanation that will fall on deaf ears.

Kim wrote:

Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend.

I saw online that some people were offended by my Aaliyah costume and I am sorry if that offended anyone, but I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman I admire and think is amazing, so I don’t agree honestly.

I play all kinds of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists as options for our Halloween costumes. We don’t see color in my home.

It’s all love and respect. Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of her costumes and she wasn’t criticized. My son was Axel Rose.

We are just paying homage to people and artists we love and respect – it’s that simple!

In case you missed her Aaliyah costume:

There was nothing wrong with the costume. Folks just super extra when it comes to Aaliyah and they’re always looking for an opportunity to drag Kim.

There was no need for the apology in my humble opinion.

Secondly, why did the apology come on the heels of the internet slobbering over Beyoncé’s Halloween tribute to Lil Kim?

Halloween was days ago. Peculiar timing if you ask me.
