That was bad as hell.
Kathy Hilton confused Lizzo for “Precious” actress Gabourey Sidibe while appearing on Wednesday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live With Any Cohen.”
Hilton, 63, made the flub during a round of the game, “Will Kathy Know Them?” where Cohen shows the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star a photo of a celebrity and she has to identify them by name.
When it came to Lizzo’s photo, Hilton squinted her eyes to think if she recognized her, saying, “I feel like I do.” After giving it some thought, Hilton blurted out, “Precious?”
Hilton was referring to 39-year-old Sidibe, who played the role of Precious in the 2009 Oscar-nominated film “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.”
Her “RHOBH” co-star Crystal Kung Minkoff, who was also a guest on the show, as well as Cohen and the bartenders, all burst into laughter over the mix-up.
Minkoff, still giggling, tried to ease the tension by joking, “She is precious, though. Lizzo is precious.”
Hilton, who seemed unphased by confusing the two black women, then tried to play off the awkward snafu, adding, “That’s what I call her! Her nickname is ‘Precious,’ to me.”
Several Twitter users slammed Hilton for confusing the two curvy black women, with some even calling the moment “racist.”
“This is a pretty racist comment but because the fans like Kathy, they’re laughing it off,” one person tweeted in response to the clip tweeted out by Queens of Bravo.
“Please tell me she didn’t say ‘Precious’…and THEN say ‘I don’t know her’- THEN say …that’s her nickname for Lizzo 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️ Make it all make sense,” a second person wrote.
“Precious is not a real person. She’s the caricature of the overweight, poor, black girl. Evoking her name is insulting, as is pretending not to know who precious is after the ‘joke’ fell flat,” added another.
“Well, there it is. Kathy pretty much confirmed how she sees the world. She sees people who don’t like her all the same. She can’t distinguish one person from another. And that’s a problem. It explains a lot. And none of it good,” someone agreed.
But others defended Hilton, saying that she just made a mistake that anyone could have easily made.
“They look a like … and why should kathy know who lizzo is … i hardly know who she is properly and im 23 … yall are way way wayyy too sensitive over there in america .. dont yall create a problem now,” a fan said in Hilton’s defense.
“Everybody should know by now that this lady is out the loop. Precious ain’t bad. It’s a simple mistake and you can tell,” someone added.
Cohen, for his part, tried to move along from Hilton’s humiliating moment and swiftly moved on to the next celebrity for the Bravo star to Identify.
