Exercising Restraint: Kim’s Approach to Kanye’s Public Criticism
“When stuff is said, it’s a chain to my whole household. No TV. Only Apple TV,” Kim explained. “I can’t risk Access Hollywood ‘Coming up next’ or anything on the news coming up with their dad mentioned and they want to watch. I have to figure out a way to protect it. So they still haven’t seen anything, but I go into crisis mode.”
Kanye has bashed Kim and her family members on a number of occasions, but Kim has withheld from responding publicly. She said that this will be how she continues to handle the situation for as long as it lasts. “I’m the one being accused of so many things and blamed for so many things and it really, really is hurtful,” she said. “It sucks, but I can control how I react and can control if I’m a mess. Then my kids will see that. I believe in my soul that one day my kids will appreciate my silence, my understanding, and my grace. I will try my hardest to keep it together at all times.”
