Tyson Beckford Advocates LGBTQ Acceptance in Response to Kim Kardashian’s “Homophobic” Comment

"It’s just the human thing to do."

Legendary male model Tyson Beckford has responded to Kim Kardashian West implying he may be gay after the model criticized her on social media. Kardashian’s comment has landed her in hot water as social media users found the reality star’s comment homophobic.

In case you missed it, Beckford made fun of Kardashian’s body on a post on Instagram saying “the doctor fucked up on her right hip.” The Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s star responded by saying, “Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,” and internet users following the exchange found the dig homophobic in nature.

Well now it looks like Beckford is practicing the Michelle Obama’s “when they go low, we go high” motto, and has taken to Instagram to respond to Kardashian-West.

“…I defend those who can’t defend themselves! I support LGBTQ, even though I’m not Gay,” Beckford captioned a shirtless photo of himself on Instagram. “It’s just the human thing to do.” He even threw in a rainbow flag emoji for good measure.

So it looks like that brings the score to: Beckford-1 and Kardashian-0.
