Despite all the flack over her comments, Kim did receive a bit of support for her celebrity friends.
“@KimKardashian, there is no need to apologize. ur intention to promote love to ur 16m followers is much appreciated,” wrote Russell Simmons.
By the afternoon, Kim attempted some damage control by posting an apology to her blog.
“I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize,” she wrote. “The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didn’t choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution.”
