Good going NBC for showing us what is really wrong with America – lack of respect! How the heck did Kris Jenner take precedence over over a moment of silence in honor of 9/11? We have no idea, but that is exactly what happened yesterday when the network disrespected all those who lost their lives to air the Keeping Up With The Kardashians matriarch’s breast implants instead.
Oh, we are sure Kris Jenner is beaming right now. After all, her breasts took precedence over a single moment of silence yesterday in honor of all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Bad move on the part of NBC skipping the moment of silence led by President Barack Obama and the First Lady, which aired on most channels. NBC, however decided that on the Today Show, they would air an interview with Kris Jenner, who spoke all about her breast implants.
Are you enraged yet? Yeah, so are most other Americans, some of whom are now planning to boycott the network. One crisis communications expert feels that this move on the part of NBC is only going to hurt the network, adding: “This was clearly a mistake, intentional or not. Given the raw feelings so many still have about 9/11, it was clearly disrespectful to not only avert coverage, but to supplement its programming airwaves with a reality show star Kris Jenner. Many will see the move as not only in poor taste but terrible taste. TODAY should have had the foresight to know that there would be a huge backlash.”
And that backlash began as angry fans took to Twitter yesterday to post things such as: “BOYCOTT! @NBC be ashamed,” “Because she’s so much more important than those who lost their lives. Boycott this dung heap station,” and “The Today Show chose to continue their interview with Kris Jenner rather than participate in a 9.11 moment of silence. #DISGUSTING.”
