Actor John Hamm blasted Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton during a recent interview with Elle UK.
The ‘Mad Men’ actor told the mag; “We’re at a place where the idea of being ‘elite’ is somehow considered a negative. Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f*cking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly. It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”
Probably not the nicest thing to drop those names in there, but some actors just don’t care.
On Monday, Kim responded to the quote by tweeting to her followers;
“I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. 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. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. 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.”
Perhaps John has somewhat of a point on the idea of being ‘elite,’ however making it personal might have crossed that line.
Team Kim, or Team John?
