Keeping up with the Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian is everywhere! She has multiple reality shows on E!, perfumes, modeling gigs, a role in a new Tyler Perry movie and her entire family is starting a magazine, so it is only natural that the brunette beauty will eventually have to face some backlash. But an entire boycott? Read on to find out who is calling for the boycott and why.
The Occupy Movement has brought light to billion dollar bank bailouts and corporate tax loopholes and now it has found it’s next victim….Kim Kardashian? The reality star is the focus of a new website calling for a boycott of anything associated with the Kardashian clan. It is unclear who began the campaign, but the idea behind it is crystal clear. As more and more people are declared “poor”, Kim Kardashian stands for everything that the average person is not.
Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian came under fire when her 2010 tax information was made public. In 2010, Kim made $12 million, but only paid 10.3% in taxes, not much higher than the average person in California who paid 9.3%, but with an average income of $47,000.
It has been a rough week all around for Kim K. First the tax backlash, next being accused of being a home-wrecker, now a boycott. Not to mention that her failed marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries is playing out on our televisions every Sunday night on Kourtney and Kim Take New York.
Kim Kardashian has been through worse (Remember the sex tape?) and will most likely triumph over the haters once again. After a small bit of backlash surrounding her 72 day marriage, Kim retreated to her parents house and went on a humanitarian mission to Haiti. She returned, looking beautiful and rested, to host a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas.
So good luck with the boycott, because if America didn’t want Kim Kardashian around then we would not watch her shows, buy her perfume and clothes or make her a top search on a daily basis.
