Mad Men actor Jon Hamm recently insulted the likes of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian in the latest issue of Elle UK. From our earlier report:
In his interview with the magazine, he said, “We’re at a place where the idea of being elite is somehow considered a negative. Where it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.”
Here’s the good part, he blames Kim and Paris for the way that people put these idiots on pedestals when they’re unworthy. He said, “Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly. And incuriousness has become cool. It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”
We applauded Jon for taking on these twits. But now, Kim has taken to her official Twitter page to discuss Jon’s comments. Ugh.
She tweeted, “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.”
Stupid sex tape twit. Jon: 1 – Kim: 0
