Jon had previously claimed, "We're at a place where the idea of being 'elite' is somehow considered a negative. Whether it's Paris Hilton
or Kim Kardashian
or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated." However, he has now admitted to E! News
that he meant no offence by the comment.
Hamm explained, "It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story. I don't know Ms. Kardashian, I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offence to it and that is her right."
Since Jon Hamm
made his initial comment, Kim Kardashian has hit back
, claiming that she is not stupid or dumb and does, in fact, run a successful business.
Do you think Jon Hamm was right to make derogatory comments about Kim Kardashian?
