Kim Kardashian clears the air on a recent comment she made in a magazine interview regarding a young cancer-stricken fan. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star writes on her blog:

I want to clear something up for you all, because it seems that something I said has been taken way out of context, as is often the case with quotes pulled from interviews. In a recent magazine interview, I told of how I had called a female fan who was battling cancer, and she told me how she had watched the show and seen how I had faced my own struggles, and had been inspired by how I had found the courage to change a situation that was making me unhappy. She told me how her life had completely changed when she was diagnosed, and a lot of friends had deserted her, which is something I said I could relate to.

In no way was I comparing my own experiences to that of a cancer patient. I was merely talking about how there are times in your life, and everyone goes through them, when you find out who loves you enough to stand by you through thick and thin. Many of you know that my father passed away from cancer, and my grandma is a cancer survivor. This is a disease that has brought so much pain and heartache to our family and I would never want to offend or upset anyone who was battling cancer, or whose family members were battling or had passed away from cancer.

What I said in the interview was misconstrued and I wanted to explain to you all what the context was around my phone call with this girl. Xo

    Did she have stores? Yes. But so do hundreds of thousands of other young women. Her father defended OJ. She made a sex tape. She became infamous. She hung on the coattails of Paris Hilton. She has admitted herself that the sex tape is what thrust her in the spotlight. And it is what keeps her in the spotlight. Sexy twitter photos, sexy ads. She is all about sex. Her mother knows it, and that is how she presents her family. Yes, sex sells. But lets not call it anything other than what it is. She needs to own her actions. She takes nude photos for a magazine then cries over them. Be who you are, not a hypocrite.

    I think she didn't stop to think about what the cancer patient was feeling. She was only thinking about how it related to her. Very revealing.

    Nice, Lisa. Someone could be typing for her...of course, we wouldn't want dying people to have a VOICE! They should just sit there and DIE! Some people might feel that way...but I hope to h&ll it's very few.

    She was a personal stylist and had stores open before her TV shows or the tape. You say she is famous for being famous yet she must understand marketing and business to have a massive fan base, stores, and products that people are willing to buy. It's judgmental, bitter people like you that's wrong with the world.

    Her father died of cancer and her grandmother had cancer, do you really think she's trying to say anything offensive to a cancer patient? What do you expect her to do? Say " My life's perfect, sucks that you have cancer". She's TRYNG to make someone feel better, someone who is her FAN as well.

    Yet you have enough time and energy to sit here on our phone or computer (which you can sell to eat!!!!!) And bash someone for not having a deadly disease. Some have diseases worse then yours, who are you to say what diseases you get to freek out over! Some people would say you need to get over yourself and stay off social media if indeed you are dieing!

    The Kardshian's are what is wrong with this country. Only in America could a family become famous and rich for doing absolutely NOTHING !!! I really wish they would just take the mountain of money they have made and just go away. Shame on us for idolizing these people.

    I have cancer. I am fighting for my life. I am also severely disabled and have very little use of both arms/wrists/hands in addition to numerous other health issues, PLUS cancer. I AM offended by your comments. You are responsible for your words and no amount of finger pointing (taken out of context) or back peddling to do damage control removes the impact of your words. You are not in high school and you are not new to the media game...you should know better. I saw an episode of your show where you had a melt down over finding out you have psoriasis... it would be my DREAM to exchange even part of my health issues for your psoriasis. I am so poor I eat food thrown away from the grocery store and cannot get the medical help I need to stay alive. You can afford to have the best care in the world for your DEVASTATING diagnosis of psoriasis. Get over yourself.

    to be honest its actually insulting that you even think you are inspiring to these people. You've never known any sort of suffering like that...its disgusting.
