Tyson Beckford Respectfully Shuts Down Kim K's Homophobia

In case you don't keep up with the Kardashians or the lives of '90s heartthrobs, it all started when Beckford body-shamed Kardashian in the comment section of an Instagram post. "Sorry I don’t care for it personally," he wrote in one comment before adding, "She is not real, doctor fucked up on her right hip" with a nauseous emoji.


Although that comment reeks of body shaming, it still doesn't validate the homophobic undertones of Kardashian's response. "Sis we know why you don't care for it," she wrote with a Kermit sipping tea emoji. The casual homophobia beneath that shade is so '90s, it predates Beckford's career.

Although this celebrity feud has devolved beyond the point of pettiness, Beckford has come back with a surprisingly respectful response. Instead of the typical "no homo" that would appear on brand for this situation, he wrote, "Train 5-6 days a wk, weights martial arts and firearms and I defend those who can’t defend themselves! I support LGBTQ, even though I’m not gay. It’s just the human thing to do. #blackexcellence #tysonbeckford #lgbt #superhero #realsuperhero."

Now can we agree to play nice? It's 2018, and both body shaming and homophobia have to go.
