Kim Kardashian reportedly compares Nigerian women to 'apes'

TWITTER POST: Kim Kardashian is yet to hit back at claimed that she sent the controversial post

KIM KARDASHIAN is yet to respond to claims that she called Nigeria a "disgusting" country and compared Nigerian women to apes in a tweet to her sister.

The pregnant reality star, who visited the African country in February for a Valentine's Day show, allegedly sent the private message to sister Khloe but mistakenly tweeted it to her eight million followers instead. It is claimed that the tweet disappeared minutes after it was posted.

“Nigeria is such a disgusting country. I couldn’t wait to leave. lol Scott said their women look like apes, and I agree,” the tweet read.

Scott, referred to in the tweet, is her older sister Kourtney's outspoken boyfriend and father of her two children.

It was reported that Kim spent no more than 20 minutes at the Valentine's Day event before jetting back to the United States via the next available Air France flight, strengthening the validity of the tweet.

Nigerian PR guru Darey Art Alade, who organised her reported $500,000 visit, has come under tremendous abuse from fellow Nigerians on social media for inviting the star to the country, say website Talk of Niger.

Some have claimed that the tweet may have been photoshopped.
