Kim K. to Jon Hamm: Calling me stupid is careless

Reality TV diva Kim Kardashian is firing back at "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm after he name-checked her as being among those who are celebrated for being stupid.

"We're at a place now where being 'elite' is somehow considered negative," Hamm, 41, said in the April issue of Elle UK.

"Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f*****g idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly. It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

Kardashian - who, with the help of her family, has earned a lucrative living through television show deals, endorsements, high-end clothing stores and a fashion line - took the high road in her response but made it clear that she’s no fool.

“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 tweeted.

“We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another,” the 31-year-old continued. “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.”

    While I'm no big Kim fan, i have to side with her on this one... Hamm should've said 'vapid' and 'trashy', instead.

    Jon Hamm is right, and I also question Kim K's usage of the word "careless." Maybe she means "heartless?" "Careless" implies "without caution," like there will be some consequence to what Jon Hamm said.

    I think Kim missed the point.... If she is an idiot or not is erronius to Jon's point. She 100% acts like an idiot. In our culture if you're rich and beautiful you are celebrated for being dumb.

    It's rather sad.

    seriously ? sounds like a lot of sour grapes to me. I think Jon Hamm is jealous that Kim + Co. makes more money than he does. i have no problem with the Kardashians or Snookie or Paris. whats the big deal ? if people admire or emulate them thats their problem.

    Would like to hear Jon's thoughts on Jersey Shore...talk about making MILLIONS out of perfecting 'stupid'. In 2010 Mike -"the situation" made $9 million. Snooky has a jewerly & hand bag line selling on QVC in addition to whatever she makes from the "shore". In 5 years they will have been able to make $$ millions from behaving "stupidly" (as the President once described police behavior in arresting one of his former professors – ultimately both police officer & professor had beer with the President at the WH – talk about stupid). The Jersey Shore is a true "rages to riches" story. The Kardashians is more a 'Riches to Trash" story of what to do when you have more money than brains! I will be "daddy" who apparently was an incredible lawyer is spinning in his grave at their behavior.

    Well, Well, What can we say about Kim that hasn't already been said? Her family loves her very much and they support each other, Congrats to them. But how can the whole family NOT see how shallow she is? She wants someone who will worship the ground she walks on and be her "Arm Candy" Honey, most men no matter how in love they are, will only put up with so much of the drama queen act. I watched the Kardashians up to the Kim and Kris fiasco. When they went on vacation before the engagement I was stunned at the level of crying and whining she took it to. I haven't watched the show since. although her face is pretty, she dresses like a porn star and when people take photos of her she has the full on Porn Pout going on, Skin tight low-cut clothing, fake lashes and enough makeup to put Tammy Faye Baker to shame is NOT the definition of beauty, less is more. How can she expect ANYONE to see her as anything but trashy and someone with the IQ of a gnat? So to sum it up.... KIM, listen carefully, stop dressing like a high priced call girl and try to focus on being seen as a nice person with some self respect (enough not to Wear shirts with the boobs offered up on a platter and skin tight painted on clothes) tone down the war paint, oops I mean makeup and QUIT the whining!!!!

    Jon Hamm is right. Here is a guy who has paid his dues, worked hard for probably peanuts in small roles, and then there airheads like Kardashian and Snooky do nothing...but they become famous for no reason at all! They did not earn anything, they just became popular because of the equally stupid people who watched their shows. WHO CARES WHAT THESE INHUMAN LOSERS DO??? I guess a lot do, but it does not make them worthy of their fame...how they can think that they are worthwhile actors or whatever. Same for Lohan and Paris Hilton...losers all around. Sure they make a lot of money, but they are cartoon characters..they are jokes. So right on Jon Boy! You hit the Kardashian where it hurts, right in their ego!!

    I respect John Hamm's opinion, he's right on the money. Stupidity is being celebrated here and elsewhere: reality shows, being a celebutante, or a celebrity with no other skill than to be on TV. Paris Hilton may not be clinically stupid, and Kim Kardashian and her clan may not be traditionally stupid (ie, they don't know what they're doing, they're clueless, etc.) but they are narcissistic, self-absorbed people. Their contribution is attention to themselves, period.

    What's most scary about this is that it brings people out of the woodwork who equate success with superiority and intelligence. To those idiots: would she have been so successful without the looks and connections? If I live without rent and untilities because I'm really pretty, and people will give me the capital I need for whatever business idea comes into my head... THAT makes me intelligent?

    No, she's pointless. And it surprises me that a comment from Jon Hamm is the worst that's happened to her.

    She's not stupid, or anybody connected with her, by a very long stretch. In fact, probably quite the reverse, along with a good healthy streak of greed and deviousness, very much representative of the 1%. "Enough" is not in these people's vocabulary. There's always "more", "more", "more" to be had. And the hard working citizens of good ole USA are continually suckered into supporting these reality "stars" by an equally devious and greedy media.
    Money talks, big time. If you can't find fame by hook (talent), you can always buy it by crook (money.. if you're rich enough; or by other means). It's nothing new. Socialites come and go. The only difference is, true talent ususally shines through and stands the test of time.

    As a fellow business person, I would like to extend to you an offer to discuss your marketing efforts. With 15 years experience in the marketing industry I believe I could at the very least educate you as to how to bring tons of locally targeted traffic to your website, and more importantly show you how to convert them into new business. As it stands, over 75% of consumers seeking a local service, use the internet as their primary means of finding you. It is estimated that within the next 5 years as new generations start buying homes and getting careers that number will rise to over 90%. The future of our companies relies on our ability to meet that demand in an effective and cost efficient way.

    I would like 30 minutes of your valuable time to educate you on online marketing techniques such as getting your website on the first page of over 100 popular search engines such as Google, for every town you cover and every service you provide, or nationwide for every product you sell.

    We can also cover the benefits of social media, such as Facebook and how to harness its power to gain new customers daily.
    In addition, I can review your existing marketing efforts and offer advice on lowering your costs and increasing ROI.

    Reply to this email to schedule an appointment or
    visit http://www.marketingicon.net

    I Icon's business model is very unique in that we provide almost every service a growing business needs to succeed all in one place. You no longer need to hire a web designer to design your website, then go to other companies to advertise the site, design your own ads, then pay for an email contact company to stay in touch with previous prospects. Icon will handle all these services in house and offer you a much lower price for all. Another example would be demonstrated by direct mail campaigns, you no longer need to buy a data list, pay a designer to design the ad, pay a printer, and pay to sort and mail the pieces. Icon would handle all aspects and save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
    More importantly, you have the convenience of working with one knowledgeable, well trained, and available consultant, face to face, instead of trying to contact multiple companies, speaking to automated machines and waiting for call backs. WE OFFER THESE SERVICES 100% FREE OF CHARGE.

    Although I agree with Hamm, I think the #&@* could have been ommitted and his opinions put into better words. There are plenty of reality celebs who contribute towards a good cause or purpose...or who educate. Kim and Paris contribute nothing of the sort. Females who like to shop? People who enjoy watching mindless television with people who exploit themselves and all the material possessions they have? Kim may not be an idiot, but she isn't really needed either.

    And Kim, I would love to delve into your work mode. Paying others to do the dirty work while you fly around the world to be on talks shows pitching items companies paid you to put your name on, doesn't make you stupid, (actually that's a pretty sweet deal), but it doesn't make you a genius either.

In short, what she represents about the utterly value-less society we have created IS stupid. The waste of resources and the degradation of humanity she represents IS stupid. The Kardashian empire is about as stupid a commentary on how wrong this culture has gone. I think that is what this guy was trying to say.

And these women, such as Kim K and Paris H, are running businesses, very lucrative businesses in the fashion world. No, they aren't Roberto Cavali, but they do have a following and are very successful. She is also very prominent in the entertainment world as are you; I don't know about your industry, but in mine, we don't go around bashing our contemporaries. You should know betta boy!

    Stupid is what anyone must be in our society who aids and abets such no-talent attention-seekers as the Kardashians and Paris Hilton to make a lucrative living on celebrity from such nonsense as so-called "reality" TV shows and all they beget.

    the reality is that Kim is in show business... in effect they're both right... for some reason, acting silly, clueless, or "stupid" has become fashionable and Kim and Paris are just playing up to that. However, I do believe that both of them also work hard at their acting/showbusiness, their design lines, and are – in reality – not at all stupid. It's not brain surgery, but it also does not come without some effort. I love both Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian but they're for different moods, different part of the brains,etc. Why can't I read a serious novel and comic book at the same time?

    I've seen a few episodes of Kim's show on E! and I'm pretty positive that she does not do her own tweets, at least not any that are grammatically correct and don't include abbreviations and lots of overused punctuation. I'm more inclined to think her publicist wrote this on her behalf. Or at least someone with a working knowledge of the English language.

    She annoys me and needs to go away. I know a lot of people still love her, but I think even more people are annoyed by her and her family. Jon Hamm was correct in what he said, and I can only hope others like him start speaking up. It is completely unfair that working actresses and actors had to fight their way to the top, yet we throw money at people like Kim and Paris, simply because "they are".

      I can't respect women who wear all that makeup and she's obviously had work done. Unless a person is disfigured or really had a hideous nose or something like that - why would a person need plastic surgery? People who have a brain, intelligence and know who they are don't get plastic surgery at that age and women of all ages who are happy with themselves don't cover themselves in crap. Anyone that does is trying to hide something and it's usually some psychological issue. She's just so gross looking - very plasticy and that shiny lip gloss and those lips are disgusting. She looks much better sans makeup.

    Stupid or not, hot or not, the Kardashians and the Paris Hiltons would never get the time of day if they weren't first rich. Whatever "businesses" or "brands" they may have now are a result of the media attention given to rich celebrities who show up at exclusive parties, fashion shows, etc. until they parlay that interest into more cash. They do not start from a point of any major talent or ability.

It's embarrassing to say that we are part of this culture. The media hype everything up, now I barely turn on the tv after I get home from work and instead enjoy a good book or going out and having fun.

      You are right, they aren't stupid, and I don't think that is what Hamm was saying. The point Hamm was trying to make is that they act stupid and that this has become glorified by the media. We should be shaming people that act the way these 'stars' do instead of making them role models.

      These "pop-tarts" arent the stupid ones – we are for listening and following them. Hey, they turned no talent into a talent and make millions. I wish I was so stupid!

      Stupid is putting it mildly. She and her entire family are selfish, morbid, and obnoxious. Her own mom is a perfect example of what mothers shouldn't be. What morals does she really have? Real families are like the Kardashians. Her dad must be turning in his grave. His legacy went straight to heck.

      No, they aren't intelligent women who are acting stupid. Don't celebrate their ability to get money out of no talent.. that part came strictly from their inheritence. Being born the daughter of a hotel baron or a celebrity lawyer allows them to turn no talent into money. It's simply that.

      So what does Kim K write? That's a joke right there. She expects to be taken seriously while the only thing she has going for her is s>x. Give her 10 years and she'll be a droopy has been whose only talent was making a s>x tape.

      You can call them stupid all you want, but every one of you who does would certainly like to be in their shoes, so to speak. They have managed to be very sucessful and stupididty doesn't do that for you. Creating an image and making money from it is just as shrewd as running a fortune 500 company. There are plenty of people who can't make money working much harder and that is the cause of this negativity. Basic jealousy. Stupid is as stupid does.

      Hey DingWizard – she and Hilton got where they were because of their families. They did not "position themselves", unless you mean on their knees and back. They are not smart or talented. They're just really lucky and feed off of the entertainment news cycle. You do not need smarts to do that. And the fact that people want to watch these reality "stars" says very little about them.

      Hit the nail on the head. "truth hurts". She knows she has no talent other that being a "Walking Matress". She took the same path as Paris Hilton in order to seek fame. I agree with Jon Hamm and other celebreties who have talent need to expose these reality retards. It disturbs me to know shes recieves recognition as a star and role model, but appears on a kids award show. Why would you allow her on a kids show given her past???So now we promote explicit behavior to children??? The only one from that family I somewhat respect is Khloe. Sound off!!!

      I agree with JHamm. I would give it a twist though. We are the ones who are "stupid" because we watch the "stupid" things she and her family do. If we don't watch or pay attention, how quickly they disappear and never hear from them. Unfortunately papparazzi keep them in the spotlight and sells their "stupid" programming and their "stupid" magazines. God that's just "STUPID!"

      To call these people stars is frightening. They have no talent; don't act, don't perform. So yes they are quite talentless. What scares me is that they are successful only because we as a society are becoming very stupid. As a culture, people choose to watch these train wrecks called reality TV, rather than watch a well composed story by someone who knows the art of story telling, or a performance by someone who masters their talents. Jon is right, unfortunately their success is predicated on the dumbing down of America.

      They play stupid on TV to rip off all the suckers. Kim K and Paris aren't stupid. They may not be able to get a 30 on the ACT, but they both run multi-million dollar companies and mini-empires. Yes, money makes money, but even though I don't get American's obsession with celebrity, if it was easy we'd all be doing it, right? I just wish people wouldn't be so hateful. If you don't like them, don't read about them or watch their shows. I don't. But I don't hate them for being young, rich and popular either.

      All things being equal, they probably wouldn't be reality stars without their money and family's fame, but then how do explain Tilula?

      100% agree. Thank you Jon Hamm!! The only thing I feel bad about is this puts her name and picture in the news again. I wish her and her entire family would just disappear!! No news articles, no advertisements, NO KARDASIANS PERIOD!!!!!

      We don't have to respect them but hese chicks are no idiots – they're certainly shrewd enough to parlay their anti-talent into millions. That in itself is a talent, and one I don't seem to have.

      No, the idiots here would be the American public for giving them far more than their 15 minutes. Can you say dumbing down?

      It's typical American stupidity that says just because you can make lots of money off of something means you aren't stupid. In Paris and Kims case, no. They were handed great assets that they definitely did not learn to deal with all on their own and making money off of it is no sign of automatic intelligence. I have no issues with them making a lot of dough, but equating that to intelligence IS a sign of stupidity every much as Kim K.

      Admittedly, Paris is a fair bit less dumb than Kim.

      Hey Kim, I hope you do read this.

      Think about how you got to where you are?? A little debut video with your X. Before that, you weren't even a blip on the hollywood radar. No one even knew who you were. Pretty soon, you will be forgotten. No one will care anymore. Not many care now so, enjoy it while it lasts. Your show is as shallow as it is terrible. Let me guess, you'll blame it on the editing.

      The perception is true, but in both cases (Kim K and Paris H) Kim K has a point – they are the modern personification of Betty Boop, but in both cases they are managing their own diversified brands, which takes more than a fair bit of savvy business know how. There are more than a few male business magnates who don't know much beyond how to make themselves scads of money, nobody calls them stupid. If you want honestly dim, Jessica Simpson would be a fairer target – but she's so darn sweet it just seems mean (and hey, it is). It goes back to the old saw about girls playing down their skills in math so boys will still like them – Kim K's answer was much smarter and light years more tactful than Jon Hamm's comment, and the only thing stupid about it was in being too smart – it might impact her brand.
