'Blackface' man who made Kim Kardashian flee Vienna Ball claims he is NOT racist


The man who made Kim Kardashian flee the Vienna Ball on Thursday night by wearing a 'blackface' has been revealed as stand-up comedian Chris Stephan.

TMZ have reported that Stephan - who describes himself as a stand-up comedian on his official Twitter account - has already issued an apology on his Facebook page, claiming he is not racist.

Reports emerged last night that Kim was upset after Stephan approached her and began to mimic her fiance Kanye West.

TMZ claim that Stephan posted an apology on his Facebook saying he is 'incredibly sorry' about the incident.

He is also reported to have said that he is of 'Arab descent himself' and 'never intended to be racist' according to TMZ.


MailOnline have reached out to Kim's representatives who have so far been unavailable for comment.

The site claimed that Kim - who stayed for around an hour and a half after the incident before leaving - finally made her exit when another man made a racial remark.

TMZ also reported that another man offered to dance with Kim 'if the orchestra played N****rs in Vienna', referencing Kanye's song N****rs In Paris, prompting her to leave.

Meanwhile, according to RadarOnline, the 81-year-old billionaire host Richard Luger - who had invited Kim as his date - told reporters during a photo call at his Lugner City mall that the reality star was not doing what he wanted.

'Kim is annoying me because she's not sticking to the program,' he said. The 33-year-old was reportedly paid $500,000 for her services.

To make matters worse, TMZ also reported that Kim 'told her people Lugner was aggressive', grabbing her and asking her to lose her security to be alone with her.

The incidents were believed to have been caught by the Keeping Up With The Kardashians camera crew.

The reality star certainly looked uncomfortable earlier in the day on Thursday as she attended a press conference with the senior citizen in front of his shopping mecca in the Austrian city.

Momager Kris Jenner seemed to be thrilled, however, with the appearance, as she was seen laughing and smiling while her daughter fulfilled her obligations.

But Kim wasn't the only attendee facing drama at Vienna's State Opera Ball.

On the same evening a fight broke out between two classical music enthusiasts.

Two men - one in his mid-60s and another in his 40s - began shouting at each other and waving their fists at the Austrian capital's State Opera House amongst the shocked guests.
