Kim Kardashian dressed up as Pamela Anderson from the 1999 MTV Music Video Awards. She was upset when she went to a party with people who were all in their 20s and were babies when Pamela wore this fit had no idea who she was. Kim went around asking this youngins to guess who she was dressed as and was devastated when they all didn’t know. So when her former assistant Stephanie Shephard knew who she was she rejoiced and called the people who didn’t know “r****ded.”

Since the video went up on her Instagram story she has been receiving backlash. Kim took down the video and apologized for her choice of words. She told TMZ, “I want to apologize for what I said in a recent video post that is inappropriate and insensitive to the special needs community. I try to learn from my mistakes and this is one of those times. Please know that my intention is always pure, and in this case it was a mistake. I’m sorry.”

Fans were so upset at Kim’s choice of words. They tweeted at her to do better. It is almost 2019 and that word has been canceled for a long time.

That was a really unnecessary use of the word retarded. I think we should all know & do better by now. It breaks my heart and angers my soul when I hear that word thrown around,knowing the pain that it carries. @KimKardashian

Just when I think I can co-exist with Kim Kardashian she ignorantly throws out the R-word… because people couldn’t guess her costume. Ugh. Do better.

The video was initially posted on Kim’s Instagram story, but after the backlash she deleted it. Her efforts to delete the evidence was too late as it already made the rounds on social media.

In July 2018 Kim’s sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian were called out for using the r-word as well. They were trying to live stream their workouts and when they had some technical difficulties they began casually throwing around the word.

“Yes, you can you f**king r****d,” Kourtney told Khloe off-camera according to People. Khloe responded, “Are you a f**king r****ded?”

After the incident, Khloe was dragged on Twitter for using the word. A fan told Khloe she needs to “pay more attention to your word choices especially since you have a huge following and don’t know who you could be offending. If True had a disability you would use a different word.”

Khloe responded, “Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that? You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! Much love today.”

Kourtney, on the other hand, wasn’t held accountable for her word choice and didn’t issue an apology. She seems to have skirted the issue due to the fact she was off-camera when she used the slur.

Kim should have learned to not use the word along with her sisters, but now she’s learning the hard way.
