Kim Kardashian offers a faux-apology for her tone-deaf get up & work comment

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian at the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday night. Kim wore a turquoise Balenciaga dress which… well, I’m sure it’s expensive. I actually think this electric blue looks great on Kim, I just wish she would do something other than body-con and plain-ass designs. I kind of wonder if she went so “plain” on the dress to better highlight those absolutely insane Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings. It’s been a while since she’s stepped out all iced up.

Meanwhile, Kim has finally gotten around to trying to clean up her idiotic, privileged comments to Variety several weeks ago. In the family’s Variety cover profile, Kim told the magazine: “I have the best advice for women in business. Get your f**king ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days….You have to surround yourself with people that want to work.” Now, in a new Good Morning America interview, Kim apologizes and says we were missing some context. Robin Roberts repeated her quote back to her and Kim explained:

“Well, that statement that I said was without questions and conversation around it… It became a sound bite really with no context. And that sound bite I came off the notion and the question right before which was after 20 years of being in the business you’re famous for being famous. And my whole tone and attitude changed with the previous question that went into that question about what advice would you give to women.”

Kardashian then shared the true advice that she meant to give during the interview.

“The advice that I would give is just that having a social media presence and being on a reality show does not mean overnight success,” she said. “And you have to really work hard to get there, even if it might seem like it’s easy and that you can build a really successful business off of social media. And you can, if you put in a lot of really hard work.”

Kardashian explained that she never intended to put women down with her original comment, saying: “It wasn’t a blanket statement towards women or to feel like I don’t respect the work or think that they don’t work hard. I know that they do. It was taken out of context. But I’m really sorry if it was received that way.”

Yeah, that was not an apology. “It was taken out of context” and “I’m sorry if it was received that way” are not real apologies. I don’t even think Kim’s new “context” provides much more insight into what she said to Variety. She was asked her advice for young businesswomen, and that was her advice. Get off your ass and work. There’s no context that makes “It seems like nobody wants to work these days” sound better if you’re Kim F–king Kardashian.
