Reality star and Trump supporter Kim Kardashian and model Tyson Beckford traded insults on Instagram on Tuesday; one was sexist body-shaming while the other was homophobic.
The exchange was brought to light by gossip social media site The Shaderoom.
The exchange came after The Shaderoom posted a photo of Kardashian visiting Jimmy Kimmel’s set, which prompted these remarks from Beckford: “Sorry I don’t care for it personally…She is not real, doctor f**ked up on her right hip.”
Kardashian wasn’t having that, and clapped back, “Sis we all know why you don’t care for it” with a tea frog emoji.
The tea and frog emojis are frequently used in combination to refer to a meme of Kermit sipping tea which means “But that’s none of my business.” Kardashian added the nail polish emoji for shady effect.
Beckford later answered back on his Instagram story: “Despite what @theshaderoom might be tryna say, my opinion on women who do plastic surgery stays the same, not for me! I personally don’t care for it! Done end of story!”
And of course Twitter has some thoughts, with many suggesting KK should concentrate on fixing her Trump-loving husband.
Kim Kardashian, you're questioning Tyson Beckford's sexuality, like being "gay" is something evil. How about you worry about your husband mental health because you should be more concerned about his well being than if someone is gay. The nerve of this woman. Not today Kimberly.

She isn’t wrong for defending herself. She’s wrong for HOW she defended herself. Using someone’s sexual preference as a way to shade them is violence. Defending homophobia will get you blocked. Take your ass on.

Claps back? She attempted to out someone as an insult. That’s not clapping back that’s homophobia.
