Kardashian has used her platform to speak out about the ongoing racism and injustices raging through the United States following the death of George Floyd and many others.

“For years, with every horrific murder of an innocent black man, woman, or child, I have always tried to find the right words to express my condolences and outrage, but the privilege I am afforded by the colour of my skin has often left me feeling like this is not a fight that I can truly take on as my own.” she shared on social media. “Not today, not anymore.”
