Boy George slams Kim Kardashian for not condemning Kanyes anti-Semitic remarks

Boy George has slammed Kim Kardashian for not publicly condemning Kanye West's anti-Semitic comments in a tearful video.

Kanye, 45, was temporarily suspended from Twitter and Instagram earlier this month after publishing a string of derogatory comments about the Jewish community.

His tweets included remarks such as "going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE” and posting to Instagram, Boy George shared his upset at Kanye not being challenged by more of his fellow stars.

The singer, 61, appeared teary as he also criticised Kanye's ex-wife Kim, 42.

He said: "I'm kind of appalled that not more artists have come out and spoke against what he's saying.

"I'm appalled that Kim Kardashian hasn't come out and added her voice to this debate, because this woman has children with Kanye, so she can understand better than anyone as a mother what it feels like for little Jewish children to hear these f***ing comments, how demoralising and terrifying it must be."

Boy George could then be seen growing emotional and teared up in the video.

He later added "As a gay man I have experienced years of prejudice, you know, so the idea of doing that to someone else based on their race or their colour or their sexuality or their gender is just f***ing appalling to me, and it should be appalling to you."

Kim and Kanye married in 2014 and divorced earlier this year.

They share four children – North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.

Kanye was dropped by banking firm JP Morgan in the wake of his anti-Semetic comments.

Fashion house Balenciaga also recently cut ties with the rapper.

Appearing on Piers Morgan: Uncensored, Kanye later offered an apology for his "death con" remarks.

He said: "You know, I will say, I’m sorry for the people that I hurt with the 'death con'.

"I feel like I caused hurt and confusion, and I’m sorry for the families of the people that had nothing to do with the trauma that I had been through, and that I used my platform where you say 'hurt people hurt people' – and I was hurt."
