But Kim Kardashian – whom Trump invited to the White House to discuss penitentiary reform last May, obliging her to pardon Alice Marie Johnson after 21 years in prison – takes a radically different approach. Reality TV – which revealed this week its intention to pay the rent of former inmate Matthew Charles for the next five years – praised Newsom's decision in a series of tweets late Tuesday night. Kardashian spoke of her recent advocacy for prison reform and criticized the "racial bias and injustice" that she believes is rampant in the criminal justice system. She also confessed to personally meeting Newsom: "We should not accept the risk that an innocent person will be executed," she added, calling for "better solutions."
Kardashian's support for the ban on the death penalty has been praised by her fans – one of them has well digested her controversial appearance at Chance the Rapper's wedding last weekend. Others have celebrated for using his platform for important issues.
But her position was baffled by those who support the death penalty, with some mocking her for weighing on such an important subject.
