Kim Kardashian addresses her husband Kanye West’s controversial comments on an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, E! News is reporting. In a new clip, Kardashian explains to friends Jonathan Cheban and Simon Huck how she reacted upon hearing West’s views on slavery during a “wild” interview with TMZ in May. As another article from E! News reports, West seemed to imply that slavery was an option.
“When you hear about slavery for 400 years—for 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” West said.
While many were concerned over West’s mental health following the comments, Kardashian tells her friends the whole thing was a misunderstanding — although she was worried too at first.
“I rushed home, I was hysterically crying,” she said of first hearing the news. “So I go home…he’s totally fine.”
