Blackfaced Guy, Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian's time in Vienna was awkward, to say the least.

The E! star, who was joined by mom Kris Jenner, was the guest of Austrian businessman Richard Lugner at the Vienna Opera Ball, and during her time at the event, was greeted with multiple uncomfortable encounters—beginning with this guy (above).

Comedian Chris Stephan approached Kim in blackface (sigh) and began mimicking her fiancé Kanye West. Stephan caught wind that his actions were offensive, and took to his Facebook to publicly apologize.

"I am very sorry that this whole situation went badly and was completely misunderstood. I am myself an Arab, born in Austria! Under no circumstance did I want to come across as racist with this action and again apologize to everyone who felt offended," he wrote.

Stephan had posted a few photos from the ball, including one of himself in blackface holding up a printout photo of Kim. "Off we go to the Opernball, Kanye is looking for his girl or [politician Stefan] Petzner."

"It was disgusting," a source tells E! News of the incident.

As if that wasn't awkward enough, Kim and Kris were noticeably uneasy during an interview with an Austraian TV host and an unknown male guest who appeared to be excited by Kim's presence. Things were fine in the beginning, and the brunette bombshell even thanked the guy for his compliments, but then he said something that completely switched the mood.

When asked if he is going to dance later, he said, "We're going to dance...we're going to wait for 'N----rs In Vienna.'"

Cue the uneasy laughs and Kim's are-you-kidding-me face to Kris.
