Who else has been Keeping Up With The Kardashians lately? The signatures on the online petition to boycott the family; one has collected over 500,000 signatures so far. Anti-fans aren’t the only ones attracted to the petition, however. BoycottKim.com has also caught the attention of the Kardashian family lawyers! Find out what the petition’s founder is saying about the legal threats received thus far.
The boycott claims that Kim Kardashian and her family “are a stain on our culture” and “an embarrassment for our country,” and hopes to influencing sponsors to stop supporting them with business or putting them on the air.
According to the New York Daily News, the founder of BoycottKim.com has been contacted by the Kardashian family’s general counsel, Christopher T. Wilson, who told him that another family lawyer, Martin Singer, intended to file a criminal harassment complaint against him.
“They try to scare you,” the founder of the petition said. “They do not want bad publicity.”
The founder said that Wilson expressed anger over various parts of the site, especially one that said Singer had engaged in the “legal bullying” of Kim’s former publicist Jonathan Jaxson. Another asked petitioners to contact Singer directly if they were bothered by Kardashian clothing being manufactured in Chinese sweatshops.
However, the petition’s founder says that the threats of legal action against him are laughable, saying that the site “did not encourage anyone to harass” Singer, but rather “encouraged them to call with their own personal opinion.” And he’s hoping to collect one million signatures or more.
