Days after Kim Kardashian was slammed for failing to address the California wild fires while promoting her KKW Beauty fragrances, the star made a touching speech about the tragedy.
While accepting her reality TV show award at the People’s Choice Awards, Kim, 38, admitted it had been a hard few days for her and her family as they struggled to cope with the destruction caused by the natural disaster.
“It’s been a really rough week in our home in Calabasas, Hidden Hills, and [for] our neighbors in Thousand Oaks and Malibu,” she said after she and Kourtney Kardashian revealed to fans that they had to evacuate from their homes due to the scorching flames.

“Our hearts are broken from the horrific shootings and those who have lost their lives and homes, as well as the hundreds of thousands of us that have been evacuated from the devastating fires that are currently burning,” she added, referring to the deadly fire.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, 29 people have been reported dead, and 228 are still missing. While the flames broke out this Tuesday, they quickly grew in size and in force, destroying everything in their path.
This weekend, various celebrities — such as Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and Camille Grammer — took to social media to announce that their mansions had been burned down by the flames.

“Action is necessary. So anything we can do to help — as simple as donating to the many organizations that are collecting supplies, no form of help is too small,” Kim continued while on stage. “Our country is stronger when we come together and we cannot face devastation alone. We must continue to reach out and help each other in these trying times.”
On behalf of her and her family, Kim then dedicated their reality show award to “all of the firefighters, the law enforcement and the first responders” who have worked to cease the fire.
“We really, truly appreciate what you have done for all of us,” she concluded. “So please let’s continue to pray for everyone’s safety.”
