Many familiar with the case believe he was a victim of racial profiling, and members of his family maintain he was at home with them when the crime took place. Kardashian West has joined a campaign that aims to have Jones’ sentence commuted.
Some people choose to criticize Kim Kardashian West and members of her family for their perceived seriousness. However, she has consistently used her platform to further worthy causes in recent times. At a time when many rich and famous people choose to blindly espouse trendy liberal movements, Kardashian West is to be commended for breaking the mold.
