Recently, Kim Kardashian said that pregnant women should hide out for a year. The comment, which was said during an interview with Elle, was sarcastic and completely made in jest, but it pissed a lot of people off who didn't quite get the humor. Kardashian said, "I recommend hiding for a good year and having no pregnancy style. That’s what I recommend. If you can do it, hide. Never leave the house," when asked what she recommended in terms of pregnancy style. Shortly after the interview was published, people naturally attacked the reality star, because, well, that's the way of the world. And now Kim was forced to apologize for a remark that was very obviously a joke.
Come on, people. Kim certainly has a long way to go before she's hitting up open mic nights at The Laugh Factory, but it couldn't be more obvious that she wasn't being serious. Did this really warrant a public apology?
In a series of tweets, Kardashian said: "I guess you can’t be sarcastic when doing interviews! I was asked about tips on pregnancy style ... I jokingly said pregnant woman should hide/stay in if they looked like I did lol. I said ask Kourt her tips because she has the best pregnancy style. I really should start videotaping the interviews I do and post them on my website, so you can see the laughs and how it's really said."
It's easy to see why Kim gets heat for a lot of the stuff she does, but a dumb joke about pregnancy style? Please. I really don't think a three-tweet apology was in order for this one; and actually, I feel kind of bad for her having to explain herself in this situation. Have we no sense of humor, world? Or, at least, can we really not tell when someone isn't being serious?

Oh well. I suppose the silver lining is that having to say sorry here and there for otherwise innocent remarks is a small price to pay for being one of the world's most beautiful, rich, and famous women. But still: Really, people?
Were you offended by Kim's comments?
