People Are Accusing Kim Kardashian Of Homophobia And Kylie Jenner's Boyfriend Of Being Transphobic

There's a lot to unpack here.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that every day is a Kardashian drama day. Like, it never ends.

E!

On today's agenda we have Kim Kardashian, who is under fire for making comments that people are calling homophobic.

This is on top of another similar drama, where Kylie Jenner's boyfriend and baby daddy, Travis Scott, is being accused of transphobia.

But first Kim, who recently made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Some people weren't exactly fans of the outfit she decided to wear, including model Tyson Beckford.

The Shade Room clocked comments made by Tyson where he gave his opinion on the outfit, following it up with a comment on Kim's body.

But it appears that Kim saw the comments and decided to clap back.

However, the response didn't go down well, with people calling out Kim for using sexuality as an insult.

I hope y'all get kim kardashian together for that homophobic response to Tyson Beckford.

@iMightBTorrence @KimKardashian 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.

While other people weren't defending Kim's comments, they also pointed out that Tyson wasn't exactly in the right either.

Kim Kardashian, who’s surrounded by gays on a daily, should not have called Tyson gay as in insult. Gay shouldn’t be used as an insult. I understand why she’s getting a lot of backlash. HOWEVER, let’s not forget Tyson got up, got on his ig and went to her page to mock her.

Tyson Beckford didn't need to make that comment. Kim Kardashian, surrounded by queer people, revealed her homophobia.

But Kim wasn't the only one in the middle of a drama, after Travis Scott was accused of transphobia. It started when Travis posted a picture of his latest album artwork.

However, the image was slightly different to one posted by trans icon, Amanda Lepore. In the image posted by Lepore, she can be seen to the left. In the image posted by Travis, she's no longer there.

In a caption on Instagram, Lepore even questioned why the picture posted by Travis didn't include her.

And once people heard about the edit, they weren't happy at all.

Travis Scott getting Amanda Lepore photoshopped out of the final cover photo for Astroworld because he's transphobic? Pretends to be shocked.

Travis Scott’s album cover is one of the best I’ve personally seen in a while but him being transphobic by removing the legendary Amanda Lepore is disgusting. The good sis Caitlyn Jenner better tell her son in law something before I do because ima hurt his feelings https://t.co/tfg5f9UvDf

However, despite the anger online, photographer for the album, David LaChapelle, tried to defuse the situation by clearing things up.

He followed it up by saying that the decision had "nothing to do with hating".

Another day, another drama. I wonder what will go down tomorrow...
