Keeping Up With the Kardashians Sneak Peek: Kim Kardashian Is Approached by a Man in Blackface

Kim Kardashian attended the Vienna Opera Ball back in February where she was paid a cool $500,000 to be 81-year-old billionaire Richard Lugner's date.

Everything seemed to be going great. Kim had momager Kris Jenner in tow (naturally), they both looked gorgeous and were enjoying the party until a totally inappropriate prankster approached Kim in blackface saying he was Kanye West.

After it happened, there were a bunch of rumors about what actually happened, but now for the first time, we are seeing video of the unfortunate incident.

In this sneak peek of Sunday's Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we see how Kim reacted when the racist jokester pulled the insensitive prank. "I'm so confused...I don't get why him or anyone else would find this funny," she confesses. Couldn't agree more.

Kim somehow managed to keep her composure and not completely go off on the guy, which admittedly would have been really tough in that situation.

To make matters worse, Kim was approached a little later in the evening by a party-goer who wanted to dance with her. She said no and then he asked her if she'd change her mind if they played "N***as in Vienna," a not-funny-at-all play on Kanye's song title "N***as in Paris."

If there is anything good that came out of this whole situation, it's that it helped inspire a surprisingly profound essay that Kim penned on racism, where she referenced a personal experience that "sickened" her.

To see more from Kim and Kris' trip to the Vienna Opera Ball, tune in to KUWTK this Sunday.
