Speaking in a clip for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the reality TV star, 33, said that her daughter North West was ‘screamed at’ by a passenger while on a flight.
She said: “I fell asleep, I woke up to this woman screaming, ‘That’s Kanye West’s baby!’ The woman is screaming at my child, I jump up.”
Kim’s sister Khloe replied: “I would’ve punched her in the face.” Kim admitted that, while she wanted to retaliate, she tried to keep calm.
In the clip, Kim and Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner, 58, reveals that the attack on North went much further.
She said: “This lady stood up in the cabin in first class and yelled at the top of her lungs, “She’s with a black guy, and that baby is black! And you need to shut that black baby up!”
Writing in a blog post last month, Kim addressed racism today. She wrote: “To be honest, before I had North I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought.
“It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe it was someone else’s battle. But recently I’ve read, and personally experienced, some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice.
“I realise that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been.”
Responding to Kris’ shocking revelations, Khloe says: “I would say, hashtag, ‘I only like black c***. That’s what I would say!”
