“Mad Men” actor Jon Hamm called out Kim Kardashian and her reality-star ilk for being the vapid twats that they are in next month’s issue of Elle, telling the magazine:
‘Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly… [the success of reality TV stars] doesn’t make any sense to [me].”
So of course Kim was promptly Google alerted to the comment and tweeted in response:
“Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.”
Except no, we don’t. You don’t HAVE to respect anybody. Particularly anybody who got their start being fucked on camera. The Daily Mail says:
During an appearance on The Today Show this morning, 41-year-old Hamm firmly stood by his remarks.
When asked about the matter by host Matt Lauer, Hamm responded: ‘I don’t think [my comments] were careless. I think they were accurate.’
‘It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with, and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility… it’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what is and here we are.’
They only way Jon Hamm could have pwned Kim Kardashian any harder is if he’d brought in a slide show of screen caps from the sex tape and illuminated each of his points with stills of her with a big black cock in her mouth. That would have been fucking awesome.
