Watching Kim Kardashian attempt to take the high road via Twitter is like watching Bruce Jenner try to move his forehead. Frustrating, entertaining and ultimately devastating.
In the April UK editor of Elle, Jon Hamm eloquently stated what we’re all thinking.
“Whether it’s Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
While Snooki‘s probably a more timely reference than Paris Hilton (god, how blind were those stars!?), he still hit the nail on the head, put the screw in the hole, returned the hammer to his neighbor and three other toolbox metaphors that mean “nailed it.”
A million days later Kim Kardashian finally finished that literacy class, learned to read and discovered that Jon Hamm insulted her, in print, in the UK. So she responded the only way she knows how, by logging into Twitter and using alllll 140 characters.
Her tweet, so eloquently written whilst driving on the highest of high roads, said:
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.
To which the world responded, “huh?”
Careless implies Jon Hamm didn’t bother to double check the spelling of her name or that he confused her mother Kris Jenner and her ex-husband Kris Humphries. Careless, however, does not imply what I think she thinks it does. It’s not like he slept over at her place, logged into Facebook on her computer and signed off without logging out. That would be careless.
What Jon Hamm said was mean. True, but mean. And when it comes down to Jon Hamm and a Kardashian, I’ll side with Jon Hamm any day. But I can’t deny that it was mean to call her stupid in print. Even if she is stupid. Even if she doesn’t know the definition of careless.
It’s just such a tragic shame that she ruined her one opportunity to start a Twitter war with Jon Hamm. Using the wrong word when responding to someone calling you stupid is truly a careless mistake.
