Female boxer Laila Ali addresses recent comments she made about how “Stupid” she felt the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North West was.
This is what she had to say:
Laila: Okay, I was recently at a charity event and I was asked my opinion on some of these non-traditional and creative names and I was speaking very candidly and honestly as I always do. And you know, as a parent, knowing how cruel the world is and the bullying, and you know, kids have to grow up and get a job one day, I did say that I think some of these name choices are stupid. I do realize that it was a poor choice of words, you know, and it wasn’t to single out Kim or Kanye. I actually mentioned a bunch of names, not just the name North. It was a general opinion to a question that I was asked, but it doesn’t matter. I do realize and I take responsibility for it. I have no problem doing that. It was a poor choice of words that I used.
Laila stated that she did reach out to KimYe to apologize, but we’re not sure if they accepted.
