On Wednesday, Bethenny made waves as she tweeted: “Say what you will about @kanyewest personal choices, but when it comes to marketing & music, he is a genius.”
The tweet came days after the Chicago rapper took the stage in Miami, rapping songs of his latest album Donda 2.
Several of the tracks performed reference Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson.
It also followed a nasty only feud, which saw Kanye, 44, fire off several online attacks against Kim, 41, and Pete, 28, via Instagram.
Fans were quick to slam Bethenny, with one tweeting: “Do better, Bethenny.”
Another fan tweeted: “I’d like to think you support the woman being publically abused…ijs talk to your marketing team about it.”

Bethenny responded to that comment, hitting back with: “Good one Kennedy. I’ve been there. I’m not supporting him. I’m stating an actual fact.”
Another Twitter user wrote: “Yeah putting your children and their mother in uncomfortable and threatening situations on a global scale in order to get enough attention to market your products and music is really genius work lmfao.”
The tweet comes amid claims Kim is suffering “emotional distress” following Kanye’s online outbursts.
The KUWTK alum said there is “no way to repair their marriage” and thinks Kanye is deliberately trying to make it “difficult” for her to remarry.
“I very much desire to be divorced,” Kim said in a petition obtained by TMZ.
She went on to say that she has asked Kanye to keep their divorce private, “but he has not done so,” and referred to his repeated attacks on her and boyfriend Pete Davidson.
The mother-of-four said: “Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress.”
In recent weeks, the rapper has accused Kim of kidnapping daughter Chicago, bashed her parenting and alleged that she thinks he’s put a hit out on her.
He also called Pete a “d**khead”, threatened to “beat his a**” and accused the SNL comic of trying to “destroy” his family.
Also in her filing, Kim slammed Kanye’s request for her to give up any marital privileges with any future spouses as it pertains to the custody of their kids.
The KKW Beauty founder called Kanye’s demand “unprecedented,” saying: “Clearly Mr West’s goal here is to prevent or make it difficult for Ms Kardashian to remarry.”
Kim and Kanye share four children together – North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two.
During a Miami concert early this week, Kanye rapped about putting Pete’s “security at risk” on a new Donda 2 track amid a feud with the Staten Island native.
The song came after the rapper leaked texts from the reality star warning him that he was putting her new boyfriend in danger.
On Tuesday, Kanye took the stage, rapping about everything from Kim to their kids and more.
He also took aim at Pete more than once.
During the show, Kanye rapped about putting someone’s “security at risk.”
While he didn’t name any names, the song appeared to reference a text from his estranged wife, which he posted on Instagram weeks ago after asking fans to shout “KimYe forever” at her and the Saturday Night Live star.
On the song, Kanye rapped: “Pop some, I ain’t getting frisked. I put your security at risk. Pop some I ain’t getting frisked. I put your security at risk.
“Ok we gon’ make this an event? y’all gone need security for this.”
Kanye’s actions have been widely critiqued by the public.
