Seems like a mismatch to us: a war of words between Mad Men star Jon Hamm and reality show poser Kim Kardashian. But the gauntlet has been thrown down.
It started with an interview that Hamm gave to the British version of Elle magazine. It hasn’t been published yet, but the Daily Mail reported that Hamm says, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a [bleeping] idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly. It's celebrated. It doesn't make sense to me.”
Never one to miss a publicity opportunity, Ms. Kardashian (or is she still technically Mrs. Humphries?) responded on Twitter. “Calling someone who creates their own businesses, is part of a successful TV show, produces, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless.”
She added, “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. We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another.”
This tweet proves two things: 1) Twitter has given Kim dispensation to go beyond 140 characters and 2) there is no way in the world Kardashian wrote that.
