Kim Kardashian West might be taking her criminal justice reform efforts to a whole new level.
“I love it, I love it,” the rapper and producer, 41, said to the outlet about his wife’s activism on Friday at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary celebration in Central Park. “That’s all we focus on, helping people that don’t have a voice, breaking down the class systems.”
He continued to Extra TV, “There’s 2 million African-Americans incarcerated now. … We’re going to get people out, period. … It’s extremely serious to us.”
Kardashian West’s representative did not immediately respond to People’s request for comment.
Last year, Kardashian West — who did not attend college — shared on Snapchat that her own attorney felt she has the skills it takes to be a lawyer.
“Okay guys, I’m here with my attorney, Mike Kump, who does all of my lawsuits, everything — and listen to what he was just telling me,” she announced.
“You’ve got the perfect instincts, you’ve got great judgment, and you know how to present your position in the most articulate manner and convince people of your point of view,” he told her. “Will you please join my law firm?”
Kardashian West recently visited the White House for the second time this year, attending a listening session headed by Jared Kushner about prison reform and the clemency process. His wife, Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, also attended.
Sharing photos from the session on Twitter, Kardashian West wrote: “It started with Ms. Alice, but looking at her and seeing the faces and learning the stories of the men and women I’ve met inside prisons I knew I couldn’t stop at just one. It’s time for REAL systemic change.”
In June 2018, Kardashian West first met with President Donald Trump to advocate on behalf of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old first-time nonviolent drug offender who in 1996 was given a life sentence without parole. A few days later, the White House announced Johnson would receive clemency and be freed.
“Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades,” the White House statement read at the time. “While this Administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance.”
