Kardashian boycott petition gains signatures

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.

Although the Braves don’t own any trademarks for the word “Brave” (only “Braves”), they insist that damages will occur as a result of the trademarks being approved.
