Kim Kardashian is standing by her man through the recent criticism that he’s been facing. However, she isn’t blind that his recent behavior is digging him into a deeper hole.
It was reported that the 37-year-old was nervous about her husband appearing on “Saturday Night Live” on September 29. Kim is well aware that Kanye was going to speak his mind but wasn’t sure to what degree.
After Kanye performed three times for the season premiere, he used his platform to reveal that producers tried to ‘bully’ him into not wearing his ‘MAGA’ hat, his stance on supporting Donald Trump, and the importance of doing everything with love.
The speech didn’t make it on-air but was captured by the studio audience who booed Kanye’s statements.
The rapper took to Twitter immediately after to get some things off his chest and doubled down on his support for Donald Trump. Between his lackluster performance and the statements that followed, Ye is receiving a lot of backlash.
Kim is reportedly mortified.
A source tells Hollywood Life: “Kim loves Kanye to pieces, and his passion and creativity are two of the things she loves most about him, but sometimes she can’t help but cringe at his behavior. When Kanye went off on his Trump rant last night, Kim wasn’t surprised in the slightest, but she was still mortified by it. Kanye doesn’t have a filter, and he’s going to say whatever he wants to say, regardless of the situation and how he’s going to be perceived—and Kim just wishes that sometimes he would reel it in a notch, and contain himself a bit more.”
The insider went on to say: “Kim really struggles to maintain her composure and appear supportive of Kanye when he goes off on one of his rants, because, she just feels embarrassed for him.”
Yeezy already spoke about Kim’s reaction to his inflammatory statements on slavery when he visited TMZ on his track “Wouldn’t Leave.” Kim will continue to stick by Kanye’s side as long as she sees fit.
