Remember the petitions that went up in the fall calling for a Kardashian boycott after Kim announced she was getting divorced? Well, one of them looks to be still going strong: The New York Daily News reports that over a quarter of a million people have signed such an online petition.
At the time of this post, 285,692 people have listed their names on BoycottKim.com, which asserts that Kardashian, 31, has made a “mockery of American culture.”
The petitioners pledge to “boycott the products sold & marketed” by the reality star and to never watch “any television show, movie or sex tape” that features her.
Additionally, boycotters won’t shop in any stores that carry Kardashian-branded merchandise. The site features the logos of brands and stores affiliated with Kim and her famous family.
Sears is reportedly following the boycott, as they sell a line of clothing from the Kardashians. The boycott’s anonymous co-founder says the short-term goal is to collect 350,000 signatures, but feels that 500,000 names would get Sears to re-think their Kardashian kollaboration (sorry, we had to).
