While all of Twitter universe had something to say about Kimye’s new baby, North West, Laila Ali was one celebrity whose comments solicited more negative attention than good.
Hip Hollywood caught up with the boxing champ and received her reaction to the original name…
After careful consideration, Ali felt like she might have not used the best elocution to express her thoughts on the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s new addition to the family.
Okay, I was recently at a charity event and I was asked my opinion on some of these non-traditional and creative names and I was speaking very candidly and honestly as I always do. And you know, as a parent, knowing how cruel the world is and the bullying, and you know, kids have to grow up and get a job one day, I did say that I think some of these name choices are stupid. I do realize that it was a poor choice of words, you know, and it wasn’t to single out Kim or Kanye. I actually mentioned a bunch of names, not just the name North. It was a general opinion to a question that I was asked, but it doesn’t matter. I do realize and I take responsibility for it. I have no problem doing that. It was a poor choice of words that I used… You know I actually reached out to Kim and Kanye to apologize.
