On Wednesday, Tyson Beckford commented on a photo of Kim Kardashian posted to The Shade Room‘s Instagram account. Beckford made comments about Kim’s right hip, implying that her plastic surgeon had botched her lopsided behind. Kim responded by suggesting that Tyson is in the closet. Now, Beckford has clapped back with a string of shirtless selfies and videos on Instagram.
“Train 5-6 days a wk,weights Martial Arts and Firearms and I defend those who can’t defend themselves! I support LGBTQ ?️?,even though I’m not Gay. It’s just the Human thing to do. #blackexcellence #tysonbeckford #lgbt ✊?#superhero #realsuperhero,” Beckford captioned the photo.
Initially, Beckford commented on a photo of the Kardashian critiquing her body.
“Sorry I don’t care for [Kim] personally,” Beckford wrote on the original post. “She is not real, doctor f—d up on her right hip.”
Kim responded by saying, “Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,” followed up by the tea, frog, and manicure emojis—all implying “shade” with a side of nonchalance.
She has received a slew of criticism from fans who think her comments were homophobic.
Meanwhile, people online are noting that Beckford’s attempt to qualify his heterosexuality with a shirtless photo seems…odd.
