In a statement, Kardashian West said: "I want to apologise for what I said in a recent video post that is inappropriate and insensitive to the special needs community. Done." So why did Kim use this word?
Kim Kardashian West faced some major backlash after she posted a video on social media showing her using a slur.
We all know Halloween is the ideal excuse to transform into something weird and wonderful, which for most of us means donning extra layers of makeup, clothing, and wacky accessories.
The term, for those who haven't been paying attention over the last decade or so, is dated, derisive, exclusionary and considered hate speech.
As for Kourtney, she offered loads of photos from her family's visit to the Nights of the Jack O' Lantern experience in Calabasas, California, which features tons of incredible decorations including a pumpkin decorated with some faces she'd recognize - Kim and her hubby, Kanye West! "So when he tweets something in two seconds, what's going on in his mind and what he thinks and what he's trying to say, he might not be the best communicator, but he has the best heart and I know what he means", she said.
"That was a really unnecessary use of the word", one follower wrote.
"@KimKardashian Didn't you learn from your Sister's "MISTAKE" for using the R WORD. So I will always love and appreciate him for always standing up for me", Kim said.
This isn't the first time a Kardashian has been slammed for using the r-word in a derogatory way.
