Accoriding to reports, Kim and her half sisters were seen texting when Rapper Common came on the stage and requested the audience to pay tribute to Brown whose death has trigged racially charged clashes in Ferguson.
"Hip hop has always presented a voice for the revolution," the rapper told the crowd during the award show, as quoted by Daily Mail. "I want us all to take a moment of silence for Mike Brown and for peace in this country and in the world."
