In a new interview with British Elle, the “Mad Men” star talks about the dumbing-down of celebrity culture, saying, “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.”
Kardashian on Monday (March 12) took to her preferred medium of communication, Twitter, to fire back at Hamm.
“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,” she tweets (which apparently counts as “writing”).
“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,” she adds. “We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.”
Oh, and no, thus far Paris Hilton hasn’t bothered to respond or refute Hamm’s contention that she’s stupid. Instead, on Monday she tweeted about a recent girl’s night in with her BFF:
“We made collages using magazine cut-outs, photos, and scrap booking accessories. There are really no rules when you do something like this, so it’s fun to let your imagination go!”
