Kim Kardashian’s business advice to women backfired when she complained that “nobody wants to work” these days, and followers pointed out that she was born with a silver spoon.
The billionaire socialite faced major backlash for an interview she and fellow famous family members gave to Variety on International Women’s Day, while promoting their new Hulu show.
“My advice for women in business is you just have to do what you’re actually passionate about because if you don’t have passion in it, it’s not easy regardless of how easy it looks,” her sister Khloé explained.
“And I think people see things with instant gratification especially with social media, that they think it just comes easy to people, it doesn’t especially if you want something long-term,” she noted.
“I have the best advice for women and business. Get your f***ing ass up and work!” Kim chimed in. “It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”
“That’s so true,” parroted Kourtney, who famously said “Work is not important to me” in a 2018 episode of the family’s reality show.
“You have to surround yourself with people that want to work,” Kim concluded. “Have a good work environment where everyone loves what they do, because you have one life. No toxic work environments. And show up and do the work.”
Rather than inspiring women, Kim invoked their scorn. “Kim Kardashian telling women in business to get their asses up and work the day after International Womens [sic] Day has to be the biggest joke of the year,” one person tweeted.
“Kim Kardashian used her a– and a homemade porn with Ray Jay to get famous,” one furious fan pointed out. “She has no actual talent. Don’t tell us to work until you’ve had a real job Kim. You’re not a role model for women.”
Even celebrities came out swinging, including a scathing reply from “The Good Place” star Jameela Jamil.
“I think if you grew up in Beverly Hill with super successful parents in what was simply a smaller mansion… nobody needs to hear your thoughts on success/work ethic,” she wrote. “This same 24 hours in the day sh*t is a nightmare. 99.9% of the world grew up with a VERY different 24 hours.”
