The Kardashians During Ferguson Tribute At The Vmas | Popsugar Celebrity

Celebrity News For Aug. 25, 2014 | Late Edition Rapper Common took to the stage to speak about the tragedy in Ferguson, MO , which involved the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. At one point, Common asked for a moment of silence, and one of MTV's audience cameras caught the Kardashian-Jenner ladies chatting and idly checking their phones. Needless to say, people who were watching the audience camera live stream online were not happy.

However, Kim did infamously pen an essay against racism back in May, saying that being the mother of North had opened her eyes to discrimination . She wrote, "[Racism] is obviously a topic that Kanye [West] is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else's battle. But recently, I've read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been." While Kim, Kendall, and Kylie have yet to comment on Ferguson in general, Kanye did make a rare appearance on social media last week to retweet a message from Russell Simmons about the issue. Russell wrote, "Police sensitivity training, diversity initiatives, body cameras for police and a f*cking arrest.
