Kim Kardashian has been slammed by C-Murder's victim for supporting the American rapper's prison release, with the TV-star-turned-law-student keen to exonerate allegedly innocent people.

The reality star, 42, previously used her voice to try to get Master P's brother C-Murder, real name Corey Miller, released from prison, but now the rapper's victim's family has slammed the SKIMS founder, according to a TMZ report.

C-Murder was found guilty of second-degree murder, which came om January 18th, 2002, when a 16-year-old fan of C-Murder, named Steve Thomas was killed after a fight broke out at a club called Platinum Club in Harvey, Louisiana. Steve was beaten and then shot dead.

And Steve's brother George now speaking out about how Kim speaking out is like a wound being reopened. The rapper was sentenced to mandatory life in prison, with Kim advocating for him.

Kim supported C-Murder in 2020, and brought up his conviction on social media again last week. Kim spoke of C-Murder in light of a new Louisiana law which allows jailed individuals to demonstrate their innocence. Taking to Twitter last week the reality star, who has been studying law since 2019, penned: "I wanted to shed some light on a case that I’ve been working on for years…

"Corey Miller has spent 21 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, and his conviction is based entirely on the testimony of two men, whom the State dragged to trial just on material witness warrants. Those men have now sworn that their prior testimony was untrue."

She went on: "There is no remaining evidence that even suggests that Corey Miller is any more culpable than the hundreds of patrons who were at the Platinum Club on January 12, 2002, when Steve Thomas was tragically shot."

Kim went on to add more details before writing: "Louisiana recently enacted a new law that provides innocent people with the ability to raise a post-conviction claim of factual innocence. Mr. Miller has raised such a claim and, like all of his prior post-conviction filings, has been denied relief without even so much as an evidentiary hearing. In light of the fact that the only witnesses have completely recanted their testimony, there is absolutely no remaining evidence against Mr. Miller."

She then urged that he "deserves a day in court" because the rapper's conviction is based on the testimony of two men who have both now recanted their testimonies.

Speaking to TMZ Hip Hop, Steve Thomas' brother George has said that whenever a celebrity advocates for C-Murder, it's like reopening the same wound that cut the family so deep years ago. Approving of Kim using her platform to help wrongly accused people prove their innocence, George added that she has found the wrong person to help in the case of C-Murder.

Corey was found guilty of second-degree murder for the beating and shooting death of Steve. He was sentenced to mandatory life in prison. His legal team then argued that he didn't get a fair trial because of jury irregularities.

TMZ have reported that they wrote: "One juror cast a guilty vote not based on the evidence but because she wanted to end deliberations to protect another juror who refused to convict Miller but was targeted by other jurors to change her mind."
