Kim Kardashian Gets Called out Amid Ferguson Outrage
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
It was rumored weeks ago during the VMAs that Kim Kardashian and her sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner were texting during the moment of silence held for Mike Brown, but now Kim is getting called out on social media because she actually tweeted pictures of herself not too long after it was revealed that Mike Brown’s murderer will not be indicted.
International Business Times writes:
After news of the verdict broke, Kardashian took to social media to show off her outfit of the night and promote her latest fragrance called Fleur Fatale.
Her profile-raising message angered social media users, who accused her of sidestepping real issues. Members of the African American community also insisted that it was her duty as a mother of a mixed-race girl to speak out on issues of racism.
Were people right to call Kim out or was the anger an overreaction?
