PSG fans ruthlessly targetted Lionel Messi and Neymar throughout their game at Parc des Princes on Sunday.
Every time they touched the ball, the pair of PSG stars were met with a chorus of boos and whistles from the home supporters.
The Brazilian even received boos when he scored his side's second goal in their 3-0 win.
Kimpembe, though, says he 'understands' the fans' 'disappointment' and 'hatred' as he addressed the spiky reception following the match.
"Inevitably we hear the whistles, even if we’re focused and concentrated on our match. We understand their disappointment, we understand their hatred," he told Amazon Prime Video via Get French Football News.
"We’re professional, we know how to stay so too, and it’s now that we must raise our heads and be able to move forward in order to win Ligue 1... We are all at fault, no one more than anyone else. We are a team, we must stick together through good and bad.
"It’s time to show that we have character and that we’re a team by staying united and strong together, even if it’s hard, very hard."
The fan backlash of Messi and Neymar comes after PSG were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid.
That's despite heading into the game with a 1-0 advantage, which was increased following Kylian Mbappe's opener.
But the French giants, who've yet to win the prestigious Champions League since an extreme amount of money was pumped into the club, blew their lead - losing 3-2 on aggregate.
Messi and Neymar's former Barcelona teammates Luis Suarez and Cesc Fabregas leapt to the defence of the PSG players.
On social media, they sent words of encouragement.
