Katie Couric has responded to Kim Kardashian’s Instagram slam, saying that she does not hate the Kardashians and that the reality star took her comments out of context.
As we earlier reported, Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to slam the celebrity journalist for not understanding why the Kardashian family is as ‘famous’ as they are. She posted a photo of the baby gift Katie sent to her with the caption, ‘I Hate Fake Media Friends’ and ‘May I Humbly Suggest You Not Send Gifts Then Talk Sh*t.’
But in a statement to E! Online, Katie apologized for the misunderstanding. ‘I’ve met Kim before and I think she’s a really sweet person,’ Katie said. ‘I was responding to a reporter’s question, and explaining how I’m intrigued by the public’s fascination with her family. I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings.’
And as for the gift Kim Kardashian slammed along with Katie, ‘The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye.’
