Boxing great Laila Ali says she’s apologized to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for making fun of their child’s name. During an interview with HipHollywood, Laila revealed that she hated when celebrities gave their kid’s silly names like North West.
“I don’t like crazy names. I don’t like them, I don’t think they make any sense,” the fitness guru shared. “North and South and Leaf and Water Drop and all these names … it’s like, ‘C’mon now. That’s just stupid.'”
Laila was asked about her comments during a recent interview, and revealed she regretted her commentary on the subject. “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.”
Laila says she has since apologized to Kimye, but her original point was spot on … the name is kind of eh.
