Kim Kardashian used her blog to fight back against media reports criticizing her recent trip to the island nation of Haiti. Kimmy gave her side of the story, explaining what she did while she was there and blasting tabloid stories that suggested her trip was to exploit the people of Haiti.
“While my experience was completely life-changing… a very emotional and surprisingly positive journey that I will never forget, some media outlets have tried to tarnish the motive behind my visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things," Kim wrote. "The National Enquirer wrote that I went to a fashion show in Haiti and spent a fortune pampering myself! The truth is that I was at the Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their jewelry and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought some beautiful jewelry!! Reading this made me so disappointed in the media."
"Taking such a positive thing and writing something malicious and untrue," she added. "The journalists obviously didn’t bother to do their research and instead published a ridiculous story to sell copies. I have ignored all of this until now, but because I wanted to write a few blogs about my experience, I felt I needed to address this first. I have become accustomed to dealing with rumors and lies spread about my family or my relationships, and have learned to ignore it to a certain extent. But when a magazine makes the decision to twist the truth and write lies like that, it belittles the entire experience we had in Haiti, and I won’t let them do that."
"I think it’s important that I share my experiences with you all, rather than you read false reports in the media," Kim said. "I have some really great stories and photos from my trip and I’m so excited to share them with you all! Xo”
