As some are trying to boycott Kim Kardashian, a separate report claims Kim and the rest of her famous family are involved in a sweatshop and child labor scandal.
Star magazine has claimed that a human rights watchdog group has opened an investigation into the manufacturing process of some of the family's products, quoting the executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, Charles Kernaghan, who claimed that the Kardashians "are in bed with some pretty bad people."
The report goes on to allege that the family is gaining profits from products that are made in overseas factories where "workers are subject to inhumane conditions."
A rep for the Kardashian family tells CNN that “They take this situation very seriously and have been assured by all of their manufacturers that the factories are policed regularly and there is no truth to these allegations. That said, we are continuing to investigate the matter and if there is any evidence of an illegal operation then they will cease work with that manufacturer immediately.”
Kernaghan has told TMZ that his quotes were taken out of context.
According to the site, Kernaghan claims he told Star magazine "it was a wise idea to wait" to run the story, and that his comments, he says, were in reference to factories located in a general region in China.
Additionally, Kernaghan tells TMZ that he has "no proof" that the specific locations the Kardashians employ violate human rights.
Very very cut the family Kardashian-Jenner !!!!
let this go guys and ignore.
I think we just need to ignore them...
This will be my last Kardashian action. I've signed the protest and plan to boycott anything marketing, selling, promoting the "Ks" including canceling by Bedazzle account. The fact that this country has been obsessed with a group of narcissists is indicative of why our country is where it is. Quick giving these people want they want–attention and your money. Focus on what is going on in WDC. I think CNN should stop posting anything about them as well.
I want to be Kim's slave,and have her treat me anyway she wants <3
bottom line....they need to figure out what happened.
They look like knuckle dragging j!ggaboos.
Can all the kardashholes go have have some horse play in the Penn St shower with that idiot Sandusky, then have that red head ex QB watch, how about that
I do not believe any thing they say, they have never gone to those factories themselves... how do they know... but running story should have been delayed Now kartrashian would clean up fast before human right group gets there.... darn it
Why don't they shack up some Mexicans in a tent, way cheaper.

OH YEA....HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO RYAN SEACREST!
I keep all my kids and put them ungrateful little snot noses to work. They cut my grass and clean house and work in the garden. I even make em milk the cows. Sometimes I hire em out to the neighbors as farmhands. That way I get more money for collectible action figures.

That wookie is going to go on a rampage and rip off the Star "reporters" arms. Either that or Kim will trade them a crack at that @ss to drop the story.
@Leo you're an attention wh*re.
Not really, but I do have someone who seems to be attracted to me 'round here... Waaaait a minute... It's you again, isn't it? You're getting to be pretty creepy!
They are liberals. Liberals hate kids, so this story does not surprise me in the least.
REALLY, "LIBERALS HATE KIDS..." IF THAT'S TRUE, THEN YOU ARE AN INBRED IDIOT.
You don't see Neocons aborting kids in the name of "choice" now, do you?
Like I said, Libs hate kids. Typical of the party of hate.
Your mother dropped you on your head when you where a baby, didn't she?
Well, at least you got a little creative and didn't use the word stooge this time.
Oh shut up LIoyd.
Hey CNN....F UCK OFF with all the articles on these no talent wh0res! F UCK OFF!!!
@Joe, you tell them brotha. Way to let them have it. They can bask in thier own vile.
I have an extra special present for those sisters this year. My 3rd leg.
Those are some hot chicky babies !
Christianity is a cult and Leo is a troll.
....and you're a f()cking do()chebag!
I believe it. It's not like they're too good for that sort of thing.
That wasnt me in the 11:50 post. Trolls are at it again. I think they are out of school for spring break or something.
Why don't they have their products made in America? GREED!!
Awww... I have an admirer!
...but seriously: Stop giving these B I M B O S media coverage!
I mostly eat prunes though. They keep me super regular.
Vegetables are good. They provide lots of good fiber and vitamins. Plus they keep old people good and regular.
C'mon people!, do you really think these girls are that pretty, just look under that pound of make up and you'll find way prettier girls in your own city or village, the only thing that makes them bautifull is their money, which you won't touch a cent. If you want to pay high brand name prices, buy american made, and stop sending your money to china.
