She should give back his money or better yet her date should sue her. What does she think the money is for. She was a PAID ESCORT.and the guy is right. if he can’t have his money back he should have her black listed from European society. Why did she accept this job if she can’t or don’t want to fulfill it anyway..

He needs to put cotton in his mouth to resemble Gayfish. Call yourself a nigga & you will get the same. Why are these two so fraudulent? The German guy is cute. Don’t care about the “racist” thing. You talk so much crap on the mic and this is what comes back.

Kim wants to be a fashion icon but truly, obviously isn’t! Serve her right! Damn Kayne has a confederate flag in his store, saying he won’t take it down! So one insult deserves another….Two idiots!!!

You are correct in saying that she knows how people feel about her choices in life. If I were Mr. Lugner, I wouldn’t pay her a cent.

The contract says..she needs to stay till midnight or she won’t get her 250.000 Euros. So she didn’t stay and i hope she will get nothing. All her special requests were more than enough € which she didn’t deserve because she is a nobody in Europe

The concept of “Blackface” is widely unkown in Austria. Most people never heard of it before.
We are really quite surprised that it is seen as an insult in the USA to dressup as Kanye West.
There was no racist meaning behind it at all, the guy who did it is a comedian. Painting your face black means absolutely nothing here.
I would not say there is no racism in Austria, unfortunately there is a lot of. But racism comes in different shapes here in Austria than in USA and blackface is none of them.

These guys (comedians both) were playing pranks on KK, because we Austrians are sick and tired of Richard Lugner paying a lot of money for people who are so called “celebrities” that ruin the reputation of a ball that is meant to be a cultural event. Lugner has turned the ball into a freak show.

So very well said about Lunger. He is an attention seeker. I have heard he has been warned and his perferred seating, front and center, was moved. Mutti watches the ball every year. Lunger is insulting to the ball, as you said. He might not be there much longer. We can all hope. Thank you for your great wording about Vienna.

Rot Weiss Rot!

As an African American living for 10 years in Austria, this is patently untrue. The history may not be taught, but the racist connotation remains the same. You have of course seen the mohren bräü advertisements, and perhaps you have seen and heard of the multiple petitions and protests against the ‘black facing’ of the sternensingen. This ‘arting’ of black features and bodies has happened for centuries throughout Europe as well as the rest of the Western World. And all European countries (including Austria) participated in the African slave trade.It stems from a time when Africans were considered to be closer to animals rather than humans, and were regarded as beings to be marveled over, laughed at, carved into grotesque dolls, and ultimately stuffed into museums next to other ‘exotic’ creatures upon dying. However their basic rights as human beings were more often than not, denied. And with that they were denied the right to dignity. Last year The Wien Museum had an amazing exhibition about Angelo Soliman which dealt with a lot of these issues. Ultimately it comes to a point, when I believe that a group of people has the right to say how they want to be publicly depicted, and I believe that other groups should in turn respect this desire. If I would lump all Austrians together under the headline of ‘Nazi’ and invite an Austrian personality to a highly regarded state affair in the United States and then greet this person in an S.S Uniform someone might get upset. I could then easily say that this was ‘just a joke’ and that I didn’t know better, and that the historical consequences and trauma and the effects that it had upon the Austrian mentality were unknown to me. That doesn’t make it less painful. And that wouldn’t make me less ignorant for refusing to engage with the histories of other nationalities and races, and thereafter for not doing my best not to be offensive to other groups who carry a different history and with that different pain. I sat in the audience of the Amadeus Awards last year when the award for Jazz and the Blues was introduced with a quote with the word ‘neger.’ Of course innocence was later claimed, people saying that its different in Austria, and not racist and its just tradition. Whatever. I believe Jon Stewart said that the tagline for oppression should be ‘Just because it makes you uncomfortable, doesn’t mean it has to change’. I don’t go around making fun of white people all the time, so it just seems confusing to me why dressing like black people is endlessly seen as being some strange sort of entertainment.

why is everyone so sensitive about that? it was a prank! I don’t know why colored people still get so upset. idiots are all over the world and I remember visiting the US and people made hitler jokes like this is any funny.
she got paid money she should get over it but somehow people lost how laugh with people about jokes.

the world is mean and when it’s not cultural or color insults people find something else

Your statement is also partly untrue, I know there is a petition going on to remove the black face from the Sternsinger. The biblical magi were from Persia, India and Arabia, basically all of them would have to have a darker skin tone, isn’t stripping the cultural heritage of something and making it all white offensive also? Kim is also wearing the Iron Cross as a top… I don’t know who thought that that would be a great idea but somebody should have seen it and point out to her. And as an Austrian in the US I get the Nazi jokes all the time, sometimes Nazi-Communist or f*cking socialist comments even. From time to time you even get lovely immigrant hate. I’m also tired of hearing that I don’t know anything about my own culture and have no right to speak up about a matter because because I’m white. No reverse-racism… yeah right…

Why would a respectable fiancée go to a ball with an 80y old? oh wait she is not respected anywhere and she will do anything for money so that is what you get, regardless of being in the news everyday noone respect you. You are a whore who made a sex tape and sold it so put up with the consequences. mb

It makes me sad that Kim – who is pretty – continues to mess around with her face. Kim – you are starting to look like a man in drag with your style choices. Please stop. You looked fine before.

actually the vieena ball listed mostly rich, good manner and respect people, but how come that man can be there? or someone really order to do that for kim? is that true someone pay so much money to make kim always in bad news? maybe when kim in young age, kim made a mistake for sex tape and waste her time for her 72 days marriage, but it happened so long ago. now her life has change and she is a mother with kanye in his life. please people respect to all woman no matter who she is. every woman in this world have a different story in their life. some good or some bad history are just the process of life.

I;m sorry but it’s hard to sympathized with her. She basically put herself in this situation, |The way she dressed herself and the way she hungers for fame so much. I guess the old proverbs still applies to her . BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR YOU JUST MIGHT GET IT!!!!
