Kim Kardashian probably won’t be tuning in to the new season of “Mad Men” when it kicks off March 25. The small-screen reality siren has fired back at Don Draper himself, Jon Hamm, after comments he made about her in an interview.
The “Friends With Kids” actor recently opened up about the Kardashian sister and her predecessor, Paris Hilton, in an interview with Elle UK, according to UsMagazine.com.. Noting that their success “doesn’t make any sense,” he continued, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
Well, Kardashian isn’t taking the jab in stride. On Monday, she took to Twitter to address his criticism. “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,” she wrote. “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.”
For her part, Hilton has not addressed his comments, but instead has been busy tweeting about the new art studio she just built in her house.
This is not the first time that Kardashian has been criticized by a Hollywood A-lister who seemed perplexed by her rise to fame. In December, Daniel Craig expressed sentiments similar to Hamm’s.
“Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions,” he said. “I don’t think they were that badly off [financially] 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—ing idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’
“I’m not judging it — well, I am, obviously,” he said. “I think there’s a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel. … It’s not about being afraid to be public with your emotions or about who you are and what you stand for. But if you sell it off, it’s gone. You can’t buy it back — you can’t buy your privacy back. ‘Ooh I want to be alone.’ F— you. We’ve been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta and now you want some privacy?”
