In his latest VladTV interview, model Tyson Beckford took us on a brief trip back to 2018 to address his long-ago internet feud with Kim Kardashian West.
“Sometimes I’ll get a couple of suckers on Instagram who will try to say like, ‘Oh, yeah. You gay,’ ” he said during the candid conversation. “Then I’m like ‘Where is this coming from?’ You heard it from that dumba**? And then you heard it from that stupid b***h Wendy Williams?”
“Man, f**k all of them!” Tyson added while sharing messages for people making assumptions about his sexuality. The former host of “Make Me a Supermodel” went on stressing, “I ain’t never been gay, nor do I have a problem with gay people. It’s just like, don’t try to turn a situation into something because I got the best of you.”
His statement came three years after his social media beef with Kim. In 2018, Tyson believed the reality star’s surgery was botched. In the comment section of a paparazzi photo of the daughter of Kris Jenner, he pointed out that her hips were uneven, “Sorry I don’t care for it personally. She is not real, doctor f***d up on her right hip.” He also included a vomit emoji.
In response, Kim herself replied with a sassy comment that read, “Sis we all know why you don’t care for it.” The estranged wife of Kanye West then added a series of emojis, suggesting that Tyson could be gay.
Setting the record straight, Tyson then took the feud to his own Instagram feed. At the time, he shared a shirtless selfie with the caption, “I support LGBTQ, even though I’m not Gay. It’s just the Human thing to do.”
Tyson is still bothered by this, all these years later.
