Newly single Kim Kardashian may be living her best life with 28-year-old Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson, but everything could come crashing down following some very controversial comments she made about women and work.
The comment – which essentially suggested that Kim thought a lot of women were too lazy to work – came from a video of the 41-year-old SKIMS founder during an interview with Variety, and we have to admit that we can’t believe she thought it would be okay to make such tone-deaf comments when giving advice to women in business…
“I have the best advice for women and business. Get your f***ing ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days,” Kim shockingly said in the video clip, which has since gone viral for obvious reasons.
Her older sister Kourtney Kardashian, who was also part of the shoot as the family was promoting their new Hulu show, The Kardashians, also agreed…
“That’s so true,” Kourtney said. “You have to surround yourself with people that want to work.”

As expected, the internet didn’t take kindly to the women’s comments…
36-year-old actress and activist Jameela Jamil led the comments, tweeting: “I think if you grew up in Beverly Hills with super successful parents in what was simply a smaller mansion… nobody needs to hear your thoughts on success/work ethic.”
“Reminder that Kim Kardashian was too lazy to actually go to law school and do the work and even then failed her baby bar multiple times,” a fan (or perhaps former fan) wrote on Twitter. “That woman keeps receiving s*** in her life bc she puts so much s*** out into the world. She’s a walking advert for karma,” they added.
“According to Kim Kardashian we all just need to stop being poor,” added another Twitter user.
Many other social media users decided that the best way to show Kim and the rest of the Kardashians how “delusional” and “out of touch” their comments were, was to boycott their brands for a while…
“Can we all agree to boycott #KimKardashian and her whole family for about a year?” someone suggested. “The more we b**** about them the more publicity they get, and to them any press (even bad press) is good press. Let’s stop the algorithm from working in their favor.”
Another added: “#boycott Kim’s new show, let’s show her how much work we CAN put in. I’m not about it till she apologizes, what an a**.”
Yet another Twitter comment read: “Everyone is upset. Stop making the family rich. Boycott all of their products! Maybe they will understand how life really is.”
Neither Kim nor the rest or her family have commented on the comments, nor have they issued an apology yet. Do you think they will address their controversial remarks?
