Kim Kardashian's quest to free black prisoners continues, and people have mixed opinions on her efforts.

As you’ve likely heard, Kim Kardashian recently shared her desires to become a lawyer and take the Bar exam in 2022. As you can imagine, that was met with support from fans as well as much criticism, as we’re sure the socialite is all too familiar with. Many just aren’t sure how to receive this newfound interest in criminal justice when we’re all used to “Keeping Up” with Kim via Instagram selfies and the glamorous, high-profile lifestyle that is the Kardashian’s.

Well, the megastar is in the news again for her assistance in releasing another inmate from prison. “Jeffrey in Miami” was serving a life sentence for a low-level drug offense and had served 22 years of the sentence before Kardashian and her lawyers fought for his release.

Kardashian tweeted out this picture of the family, sharing that she finds joy in this “life saving work”.

If you recall, this isn’t the first time Kardashian has done something like this. Her first successful release of a low-level offender was back in 2018 when she assisted with the freeing of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman sentenced back in 1996 with a life sentence, without the chance for parole, for a first-time, non-violent drug offense. Kardashian’s efforts in meeting with President Trump led to Johnson’s release in June 2018.

Twitter weighed in on the news. Users made mention of her father’s profession:

Some people are against Kim Kardashians moves to help get low-level offenders out of prisons. Citing that there are already a ton of black people who are trying to do the work, and have been doing the work.

Many users commented with their support for Kim leveraging her wealth and celebrity:

Whether you believe that Kim K’s intentions behind these campaigns are good or not, it’s still refreshing to see someone freed from prison who probably shouldn’t be there in the first place. Hopefully, Kim continues to do more.
