Kim Kardashian's Homophobic Clapback to Tyson Beckford Is NOT Okay

Being body-shamed is awful, but using homophobia is not a good way to respond...

In the latest headline-grabbing Instagram shade-war, Kim Kardashian tried to cut male model Tyson Beckford with a comment dripping in homophobic undertones. 

Shots were first fired by Beckford who commented on a photo of Kim's body, stating "Sorry, I don’t care for it personally. She is not real. The doctor fucked up on her right hip," with an accompanying vomit emoji. 

We all know that was not nice, but Kim's response was not very respectful either.

"Sis, we all know why you don’t care for it," she clapped back, along with an emoji-version of the Kermit the Frog "sipping tea" meme.

The undertone? Beckford's gay, haha! So there's no way his opinion matters! Or maybe she was trying to emasculate him by implying he wasn't interested in women (as if gay men aren't man enough). Either way, it's not a good look for Kim...

Beckford (who has never identified as a member of the LGBTQ community but instead has had high profile relationships with women) is indeed a model, not gay. But Kim's implication that male models–or people who aren't attracted to her–are gay has sparked outrage. The black and gay community came to call her out, and held nothing back.

So who's in the wrong here? Beckford for body-shaming? Kim for gay-shaming? Both of them? Let us know your thoughts!
