While Kim threw her support for Pete amid the drama by “liking” a tweet from director James Gunn that praised the comic as a “truly generous, tender & funny spirit,” Ye publicly defended his latest project by saying that “art is protected as freedom of speech.”

In a recent interview with Variety, Kim touched the drama surrounding her split with Ye, saying, “Being in the public eye and having disagreements publicly is never easy. But I do believe in handling it all privately.”


“I believe in championing publicly and criticizing privately,” Kim continued. “I don’t think I would ever criticize the father of my children on my TV show. That’s just not really what I’m about, and I just don’t think that would ever make me feel good.”
