Kim Kardashian Faces Backlash For Asking Women To Get Off Their Butts & Work

“If only Kim Kardashian would spend time with real people.”

Kim Kardashian is facing backlash for her “advice for women in business.”

Kim, her sisters Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian, and their mom, Kris Jenner, recently sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Variety, during which they discussed their booming business empire. The group was promoting their forthcoming Hulu reality series, “The Kardashians.”

“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 Kardashian said in a clip.

Her sister Kourtney chimed in and said “That’s so true.”

Continuing to explain her thoughts on how to become a successful businesswoman, Kim Kardashian shared, “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,” she concluded.

Addressing people who might think that her life is easy, she said, “When you do product shots (or) when you (post) things that are work-related posts, it’s still a job and it’s still really hard.”

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum acknowledged that success is not easy before adding, “If you put in the work, you will receive results. It’s that simple.”

An excerpt from the interview was then posted to the Variety Twitter page, where Kim Kardashian faced backlash for her comments.

Many pointed out that all are not born to famous millionaires and mentioned that Kim Kardashian’s remarks were a slight to people who earn minimum wage.

“If only Kim Kardashian would spend time with real people (i.e. the majority of us) she’d see many holding down 2 jobs and still being unable to afford their own place or even a smidgen of the luxuries she has,” one wrote.

“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,” actor Jameela Jamil tweeted. “This same 24 hours in the day s— is a nightmare. 99.9% of the world grew up with a VERY different 24 hours.”

In the comments of Jamil’s Instagram post on the topic, “Community” star Yvette Nicole Brown echoed those sentiments.

“With the amount of help (household and otherwise) they’ve had in life, being able to work hard is easy,” she wrote. “Lecturing those who weren’t born on third base about their work ethic is ridiculously rude and disrespectful.”

Kim wasn’t the only Kardashian asked for advice, in the full video, Khloé said, “My advice for women in business is you just have to do what you’re actually passionate about. … It’s not easy, regardless of how it looks. I think people see things, with instant gratification because of social media, that they think it just comes easy to people.”
