“Whether it’s Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f*cking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. 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. 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.
The thing is, no one was ever really expecting Kim to blow up about this. Do you realize how often Kim Kardashian gets called a f*cking idiot? Probably at least three times a week here at Evil Beet alone. In fact, another well respected actor, Daniel Craig, called her a f*cking idiot just a few months ago:
“Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f*king idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’ …I’m not judging it. Well, I am, obviously.”
See? No hard feelings! Talented, generally classy people get exasperated enough to get catty about the Kardashians all the time, and as long as they talk trash about them in public, it’s totally cool. It’s actually great. So keep ’em comin’, guys! Maybe Brad Pitt and George Clooney can get throw a slumber party and watch every single episode of Khloe and Lamar and then give bitchy reports to GQ next time! Score.
