- Kim Kardashian has helped save a Texas man who was on death row from being executed
- Thanks to Kardashian and others campaigning on his behalf, Rodney Reed has had his execution indefinitely suspended
- Reed was sentenced to death for the rape and murder of Stacey Stites back in 1996
Reed has been on death row in the state of Texas since 1998.
He denies that he murdered Stites even though his DNA matched the semen sample found inside her.
He claimed that the reason his DNA was found on Stites is because he was having an affair with her.
Some witnesses have claimed that Stites' fiancé was responsible for her murder.
Kardashian posted an emotional message on Instagram describing her meeting with Reed after he'd heard the news that he would not be getting executed.
Kardashian wrote, "Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room in that moment."
Kardashian's followers were impressed with her philanthropic work.
One follower wrote, "What you're doing for prison reform is so commendable. I have so much respect for you and what you're doing."
Another wrote, "Kim for President."
Her sister Khloe Kardashian said, "You are such a beautiful person, inside and out."
The Real co-host put up three celebratory emojis.
There were, however, posters who were concerned that Reed might actually be really guilty.
One asked, "Do you ever meet with the victims' families? Do you know he was associated with five other rapes with DNA evidence.
"I hope you are right about his innocence but there is a dead girl and a family who misses her. Make sure you are right before you brag."
Kardashian's post was liked over a million times.
