We Might Not Have To Keep Up With Kim Much Longer

Are you all as sick of the Kardashians as we are? I mean, it’s getting to the point where I don’t even want to turn on E! anymore, just to avoid them. Well, we aren’t the only ones. Apparently, America is totally over them as well. Except for Bruce, because really who can get sick of Bruce? The real issue seems to be with Kim as opposed to the rest of the clan, and recently, an online petition was started in an effort to sever the ties between Kim and her sponsors. The petition claims that the Kardashians have “made a mockery of American culture,” or kulture as the Kardashians would say.

Boycottkim.com has a list of all the places that sell Kardashian products or are partnered with them, and ask signers to boycott these companies until changes are made. It also calls for signers to stop watching any of the Kardashian shows (and sex tapes!) and stop reading publications about them from websites to tabloids. And you should also unfollow Kim on Twitter and unlike her on Facebook. Currently over 285,000 people have signed the petition, and it appears that companies like Sears are already taking notice.

It also talks about how Kim is a bully and includes a wall of shame with statistics like how Kim spent $400,000 on champagne at the wedding and could have helped save hungry children. Talk about a guilt trip. There’s also a list of quotes from other celebrities talking about the irrelevance of the Kardashians. You can even post on a comment wall to express your opinions about Kim.

One of the co-founders, who remains anonymous, believes that at 500,000 signatures companies will start to rethink their partnerships with Kim and the Kardashians. While it seems a little crazy to petition a celebrity, maybe this will actually help bring down the Kardashian impact. Or so we can hope. Sure, they’ve made a lot of money off of doing absolutely nothing, which is I guess the great American dream. But after Kim and Kris’s Fairytale Sham, America is angry. Share the wealth, Kardashians, or we’re going to stop yours.

    I don't think we should boycott companies like Sears just because they sell Kardashian merch, simply because our economy doesn't need anymore recession! Just don't buy from their clothing line.

    And it is ridiculous, how much money they spend on themselves and not others. Like Kim's trip to Haiti. Oprah and Sean Penn were there at the same time, and there are pics of them getting down and dirty, actually using their hands (and money) to help people. Kim was all glammed up her whole trip and went to a fashion show.

    If she had people donate money to Haiti in lieu of wedding gifts, I would like her a hell of a lot more.

      I know, I can't skip out on Sephora and Ulta just because they sell her perfume. But their lives are completely ridiculous. Even Barbara Walters said they have no talent.

    I would gladly sign that petition, but then what celebrity would I hate with a burning passion?

      Rebecca Black?

    Shouldn't we be this angry over the lack of health care in our country? Or the lack of affordable college education? Or the injustices in our public school system? Or our dirty water (fracking, anyone??) or the fact that women STILL don't have equal pay for equal work…or that rights over our own bodies are still under the thumb of the GOP? if you don't like Kardashians, don't watch them, but really? Is it worth all the drama? There are so many other things worth fighting for that impact us much more on a fundamental level than some reality show.

      You need the government to hold your hand? I never have a never will. Take your police state and obamacare and shove it.

    2. Caitlin-University of Alabama says:

      We Americans clearly have our priorities in order. It's true, we should be more passionate about important issues. It's sad that we're more angry about Kim's fake wedding than real things affecting our country.

    I don't get the point of this petition. People like the Kardashians exist because we allow them to. There's no need to boycott the companies that are producing collections with them and selling their merchandise- they're doing it because they're businesses and at the moment, that's what people want. You can hardly blame a business for trying to make money (because after all, that's kind of the point).

    1. Caitlin-University of Alabama says:

      I don't think they're necessarily blaming the companies, but they're trying to draw attention to exactly what they're endorsing. I think the boycotting companies thing is extreme too, I'm certainly not going to stop shopping where I want to because of a celebrity.

    Except by talking about Kim's irrelevance, you are actually making her relevant….
