The beef all went down in the comments section of The Shade Room’s Instagram account. Beckford responded to a photo of Kim by writing, “Sorry I Don’t care for it personally … She is not real, doctor f**ked up on her right hip.”
Kim answered back by saying, “Sis we all know why you don’t care for it.”
The term “sis” is common in the LGBT community, used often to refer to an LGBT person both in a positive and negative way. It can be seen as homophobic if used by someone who is not part of the LGBT community.
Some have also taken offense because the word is used in the black community as well; “sis” being short for “sista.”
Social media reaction was all over the map — people from both communities got on Kim Kardashian for using the word, while others got on Tyson for his body shaming comment.
Ok here’s a question. IF Tyson Beckford IS gay… is Kim Kardashian’s “sis” comment homophobic or just disrespectful. You don’t gotta comment, you don’t gotta retweet. Just think about it. 🤔🤔🤔

Tyson body shames Kim & y’all still find a way to bash her for calling him sis? The Kardashians are culture vultures, this ain’t nothing new, but that’s still no excuse to ignore him doing something y’all wouldn’t accept another man doing to any other woman. Kardashian or not.

She didn't ONLY call him sis. There was a whole sentence after that. Plus, Kim Kardashian is not a Gay person. https://t.co/govYavSVYR

Kim Kardashian called Tyson Beckford "sis" and implied that he was gay because he said that her body was fake.

Beckford responded with a series of Instagram stories, first saying his comments were meant to be about women who get plastic surgery and not specifically about Kim (he’s more of a Beyoncé guy).
Then he flexed his muscles by posting photo after photo after photo of his gun collection, including one photo of him dressed all in black with camouflage makeup and the caption, “Waiting for the IG death threats like …”
We get it, Tyson …
