Queers Tweet, Kardashian Apologizes — Sort Of 


After media wags and lesbian power couple Jill Goldstein and Nikki Weiss-Goldstein (of The Real L Word) took to the Internet to criticize Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage as an affront to LGBT people who can't marry, the reality TV star known best for a sex tape, a love of ball players, and her close knit family has come out with an apology of sorts.

As Kardashian and her momanager Chris Jenner went on damage control, the 31-year-old Kardashian posted a message to fans on her website, admitting she "got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show. When I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and I didn't want to disappoint a lot of people."

The Real L Word stars expected Kardashian went through with it because she made money from the big wedding event and suggested in their open letter posted on, "Why not take a portion of the millions of dollars you earned on your wedding and donate it to the Human Rights Campaign to help fight for marriage equality? It would speak very loudly."

Kardashian said she was donating their wedding gifts to the Dream Foundation and that, despite media reports of millions, she did not profit from her wedding.

"First and foremost, I married for love," she wrote.

Jenner, however, told Good Morning America that Kim's soon-to-be ex-husband would be an "Indian giver" if he wanted the $2 million ring back -- pissing off yet another group of people in the country's largest organization of Native Americans (for using the racial stereotype long dismissed by activists).

"Once again American Indians and Alaska Natives have been misrepresented by a single misinformed statement," said Jacqueline Johnson Pata, Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians, in Radar Online. "Native American people serve in our country's military at disproportionate rates, are respected business leaders, citizens of the United States, members of Congress, professional athletes, musicians, teachers, and active participants in civic life,"

Meanwhile photos of Kardashian and Humphries with the phrase, "If you think gay marriage cheapens the institution, two words ... Kim Kardashian" circulated widely on Facebook and gay celebs like Perez Hilton tweeted about marriage equality.

George Takei's tweet read, for example, "Kim Kardashian files for divorce after 72 days. Another example of how same-sex marriage is destroying the sanctity of the very institution."
