Jon Hamm vs. Kim Kardashian – Who Is The Real Idiot?

Let’s get you all caught up to speed on one of the weirdest feuds happening in celebrityland right now.

Jon Hamm, the suave star of Mad Men, called out Kim Kardashian in the April issue of Elle UK magazine. Specifically, he said the following:

“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. It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

Kardashian fired back on Twitter with a surprisingly well-written retort (what was clearly crafted by her PR people and not herself). She said:

“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.”

Kardashian is correct in noting that she is involved in a multi-million dollar business with other members of her family, but for her to suggest that she “runs” the business is laughable. She was born into money and no one would know her name if it wasn’t for a sex tape she made.

Of course, any attention is good for the Kardashians. Kim may be pretty idiotic in a lot of ways, but she is clever enough to recognize that it’s good for her when celebrities like Hamm talk about her.
