It’s not often that I side with Kim Kardashian, mostly because she’s evil, but when I do it’s usually because she’s facing down an even greater evil. Like today. Apparently, Kim went to Vienna to be the date of Richard Lugner for the Vienna Annual Opera Ball (an honor that has gone to Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, so draw your own conclusions) and of course it went straight to sh!t. Apparently, someone went up to Kim dressed in blackface, then made a joke about … you know, that one song Kanye West did about Paris. TMZ reports …
Lugner just did an interview trashing Kim for not sticking to the program, saying, “Kim is annoying me.” But we’re told she was taking pics with Lugner when a guy who was working the ball came up to her … IN BLACKFACE acting like he was Kanye. She walked away from the guy, but had to stay another hour and a half. The final straw. A short time later a guy came up to Kim and asked her to dance. She said she wasn’t a good dancer, and then the guy responded, he would dance with her if the orchestra played “N****rs in Vienna.” Kim is saying there were other problems. She told her people Lugner was aggressive, at times grabbing her and imploring her to lose her security. She said Lugner was trying to be alone with her.
Part of me doesn’t want to believe this, mostly because it’s all just so cartoonishly evil that for it to be true, we’d have to assume that there’s a group of people in Vienna’s opera community operating on a Snidely Whiplash level of awfulness. But on the other hand, apparently this was all caught on tape, which … gosh, that really is just cartoonishly evil.
