Mad Men’s John Hamm got quite a bit of attention this week due to his comment when interviewed by Elle UK calling Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian idiots… indirectly.
Here’s what he said:
“‘Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being … [an] idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
The Reality TV star heard of the comment and immediately took to Twitter to voice her opinion. You must agree that her response was well-thought out and professional. Getting a point across this way will probably get her more supporters. Someone will look bad in the end and it’s not going to be Kim Kardashian in my opinion.
“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.”
