Kim Kardashian is always in the public eye and a recent statement about people not wanting to work upset a lot of people. Now even more famous faces are speaking out about it.
Variety recently profiled Kim Kardashian and her family about their upcoming new reality show, The Kardashians, which will premiere on Hulu on April 14. During the interview, Kim made a controversial remark, claiming that women are too lazy to be successful these days. Many people mocked her comments for being rude and out of touch, and the video quickly went viral.
According to NME, Paul Stanley recently spoke out about Kim’s controversial comment, in which she stated, “I have the best advice for women in business. Get your f*cking ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.” He went on to clarify his statement.
“You have to surround yourself with people that want to work. 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.”
In response to Kardashian’s remarks, Paul Stanley shared an article on Twitter, criticizing her for implying that women weren’t working hard enough.
“The irony here would be funny if it wasn’t such an insult to millions of women who struggle to achieve and put food on the table while battling a system of inequality and inequities. Kim, You were born rich. Embrace it with grace by not being blind.”
Elsewhere in the Variety interview, Kim also expressed her frustration with the assumption people have that “she’s just famous for being famous.”
“We focus on the positive. We work our as*es off. If that’s what you think, then sorry. We just don’t have the energy for that. We don’t have to sing or dance or act; we get to live our lives — and hey, we made it. I don’t know what to tell you.”
