Kim Kardashian fans are furious over the reality star’s comments about having a strong work ethic. Here’s what Kardashian said and how fans are reacting. 

Kim Kardashian gave some harsh advice to women in business

On Mar. 9, a few members of the Kardashian-Jenner family did an interview with Variety in which Kim Kardashian gave women in business some harsh advice.  

“I have the best advice for women in business,” Kardashian stated. “Get your f—ing a– up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”

“That’s so true,” Kourtney Kardashian chimed in, as Kris Jenner agreed, “Yeah.”

“You have to surround yourself with people that want to work,” Kim continued. “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.”

Fans are slamming the reality star for not acknowledging her privilege

Fans aren’t happy with Kim Kardashian after hearing her advice for women in business. They are commenting on social media that she is tone-deaf for not acknowledging her privilege and has no idea what working conditions are like for the average person.

“Love Kim Kardashian berating women who don’t want to ‘work’ when she was born into high society in LA and benefited greatly from the privilege that provided the platform for her to continue poaching from Black women originators,” one person wrote on Twitter. “You just can’t make this s— up!” 

“99% of women work harder and longer than Kim Kardashian each day,” another fan Tweeted.

Jameela Jamil, star of NBC’s The Good Place, shared a lengthy Instagram post about Kardashian’s message that has already received over 300,000 likes. “They shouldn’t be asked about their secret to success. They shouldn’t answer those questions,” Jamil said of the Kardashian-Jenner family. “It’s all obvious to everyone, and I hope nobody holds themselves to the standards of people who were raised by millionaires.”

She added, “Just take the money, use it for good and chill the f— out when lecturing others about grind and hustle. And learn how to brag without putting others down who have less.”

A former employee said Kim Kardashian’s advice doesn’t align with her business practices

One of Kim Kardashian’s former employees said that the reality star’s business practices do not align with the advice she gave women in business. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star emphasized not working in a toxic work environment, but it sounds like that’s exactly what her family created for employees working on their apps.

The former employee tweeted, “I was an editor on the Kardashian apps in 2015 in LA, worked days nights & weekends, could only afford groceries from the 99 Cents Only Store, called out “sick” more than once bc I couldn’t put gas in my car to get to the office, & was reprimanded for freelancing on the side ❤️.” 

The tweet has over 500,000 likes and has been retweeted nearly 80,000 times.
