Kim Kardashian Responds To Emotional Death Row Moment On Show

Kim Kardashian has spoken out about the emotional scene from this week's episode of The Kardashians that saw her speak to death row inmate Brandon Bernard before his execution.

Despite her campaigns to get Brandon off death row, including regular talks with him and his family as well as legal teams and politicians, Bernard was executed in December 2020. Watch a clip from the episode here:

Reflecting on the phone call during a confessional, Kim said: "The fact that he was the one who tried to calm me down from crying broke my heart."

In the same episode, Kim cried tears of joy after successfully managing to help call off death row inmate Julius Jones's execution.

In November 2021, after countless protests and campaigns, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt finally granted Julius Jones clemency, mere hours before his execution was scheduled.

He was instead commuted to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Viewers also got to see the moment Kim successfully passed the 'baby BAR' exam, bringing her closer to following in her father's footsteps and becoming a lawyer.

After the bittersweet episode aired on Thursday, Kim took to Instagram to discuss the emotional scenes.

Sharing a clip from the episode to her Instagram Story, she wrote: "This week's episode of the Kardashians allowed me to share with you guys some of the reform work that I do.

She went on to say that she and her team are still working to get Julius Jones out of prison, adding that watching this week's episode back inspired her to keep up the fight.

"We are still fighting for Julius Jones and won't stop until he's home," she wrote.

"Watching this over showed me that without all of the support, Julius's sentence would not have been commuted either. Julius is an innocent man that deserves his freedom."

Kim begun her legal training in 2019 and passed the 'baby BAR' in December last year. She said her experience campaigning for Johnson in 2018 influenced her to pursue a career in law.

She continues to campaign for changes to the US justice system and has discussed her concerns about long sentences given to first-time offenders and the disproportionate effect this has on ethnic communities.
