Did Kim Kardashian really diss Nigeria on Twitter?
A nasty tweet about the country, allegedly from the reality star’s account, made its rounds on the Internet on Tuesday, sparking outrage in the Twittersphere.
The post read, “Nigeria is such a disgusting country. I couldn’t wait to leave. lol Scott said their women look like apes and I agree.”
However, Gossip Cop immediately noticed something was amiss in the purported tweet, as the blue “verified” check mark was absent from the right side of her name.
So we checked in with a rep for Kardashian, who confirmed our suspicions that the tweet was indeed a FAKE.
The spokesperson tells us, “This wasn’t tweeted from her account. She never tweeted this.”
Kardashian visited Nigeria in February to host a a concert with R&B singer Darey Art Alade.
