Kim Kardashian remained uncharacteristically silent after Mad Men actor Jon Hamm referred to her as “a f***ing idiot” last week.
However, Kim Kardashian has finally spoken out and hit back at Jon Hamm’s comments, calling them “careless”.
Kim Kardashian, 31, took to her Twitter page to express her opinion over his choice words.
The reality star wrote: “Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, <<stupid>>,is in my opinion careless.
“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.”
Jon Hamm referred to Kim Kardashian when he recently hit out at the cult of celebrity in an interview with April’s Elle UK magazine, saying that it made “idiots” like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian into millionaires.
“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” Jon Hamm told April’s Elle UK magazine.
“Being a f***ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
Jon Hamm added that the success of reality TV stars “doesn’t make any sense” to him.
The actor added that he also didn’t understand why blonde, skinny women have become the epitome of beauty by modern society, saying curvy women like his Mad Men co-star Christina Hendricks are more beautiful.
His comments come as the new series of successful TV show Mad Men, in which he plays womanizing advertising exec Don Draper, is due to air.
The fifth series follows on from his character’s shock proposal to his secretary Megan at the end of series four.
