Kim Kardashian West has landed in hot water after she clapped back at Tyson Beckford for body shaming her with a homophobic response.
Gossip Instagram blog, The Shade Room, caught all the spice after Tyson Beckford commented on a picture of Kim Kardashian West in grey sweatpants with a matching grey athleisure bra posting: "Sorry I don't care for it personally. She is not real, her doctor f**ked up on her right hip."
Kim then thought she had a good read going clapping back with: "Sis, we all know why you're not here for it. (tea emoji, frog emoji and nails emoji)".

Thereby, implying that the reason Tyson doesn't care for it is that he is a supposed closeted gay man and not only trying to out him but using homosexuality as an insult.
Many LGBTQI+ members of the Twitterverse did not find this to be funny and very much homophobic.
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.

I hope y'all get kim kardashian together for that homophobic response to Tyson Beckford.— Edmond Mode (@KidTiger__) July 31, 2018
i saw this earlier and there was so much going on that I didn't even comment.— Miss Esthetician to YOU (@CruzanChoklate) July 31, 2018
1. Tyson Beckford need some business or a hobby. He was out of line.
2. Kim K using sis and then insinuating Tyson is gay as an insult is so cheap and old and homophobic. https://t.co/YLE7g32CGA
It wasn’t her “truth”, she knew what she was doing and I don’t think being called gay is an insult but we all know how gay rumours ruin people’s lives because of homophobia.— Mpumz (@Mpumz_N) July 31, 2018
Why does the clapback always have to hint at someone's possible homosexuality? https://t.co/XDDxRGB5bw— Kirk Moore (@KirkWrites79) July 31, 2018
And yes Kim K, your clapback alludes to Tyson Beckford being gay, a tactic folk love to use to shame dudes.— George M Johnson (@IamGMJohnson) July 31, 2018
But we know. “You have gay friends”
Next time, don’t wear outfits that shape you like a dreidel. pic.twitter.com/abCbC4W11S
If all you can do to defend yourself against criticism is imply that someone is gay.ya sad. And you’re no ally. https://t.co/yu9ctxOHaa— Niecy Nash’s Waist (@_maleficentt) July 31, 2018
This new shit where straight folk use "sis" to call each other gay in a roundabout way. I hate it. pic.twitter.com/iEAEeUUNbd— Craig Bro Dude (@CraigSJ) July 31, 2018
