Groups petition for a boycott of The Kardashians
Seen here on the cover of Marie Claire wearing her wedding ring and gushing in the interview about how perfect Kris Humphries was only two weeks before announcing her divorce because that’s how talented she and her whole clan is in the art of lying, Kim Kardashian and the rest of her lovely family are now being targeted by several organizations who want them off the air.
“In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” Cyndy Snider, the organizer of a petition on GoPetition said in a statement, first published on Yahoo TV.
“We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
As of November 15, the “No More Kardashian” petition, which launched on November 2, had more than 10,000 signatures.
Snider continued, “While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them.
“I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.”
There are also other websites and Facebook pages like BoycotttheKardashians.com dedicated to getting the Kardashians off television, and an ever growing number of people have posted on Tyler Perry’s website, demanding that the successful director oust Kim from her role in his new movie, The Marriage Counselor.
