Kim Kardashian wrote a lengthy letter about her thoughts on the Beverly Hills Hotel boycott earlier today.
The 33-year-old, who stepped out in a bra-baring, all-white ensemble early Monday, explained that while the Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah's actions "are completely against everything" she believes in, she feels for the staff of the beloved hotel.
"My best friend Allison and I wanted to take our babies out to lunch a few days ago after our baby class but there were so many paparazzi swarming us, it would have really scared them…We were planning on taking them to the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is where we always go because they respect not having any paparazzi drive onto their property, but I reminded Allison that my bridal shower was moved from that hotel due to the actions of the Sultan of Brunei."
She added, "However, I started to realize that maybe boycotting the hotel isn't the best solution either. For a sultan that has 20 billion dollars, this loss of business doesn't even make a dent in his fortunes. But the hotel staff are being negatively affected every day with the boycott that has gone on for weeks now… We shouldn't punish the amazing hard-working people who have been so good to us for years!"
North West's mommy then reminisced about her childhood memories at the establishment, saying, "When I was a little girl, I would ride my bike to the Beverly Hills Hotel on the weekends to eat downstairs in the coffee shop with my dad, and some of the same people still work there! It's sad to see them suffering from this protest.
"I support Rose McGowan and Russell Crowe's takes on this matter. The unjust treatment and violation of rights of the LGBT community around the world is never justified and I will continue to proudly support the LGBT community in every way imaginable. I do believe though that instead of this boycott, there has to be another solution."
