Mad Men actor Jon Hamm has revealed how he believes that celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton are having a negative effect on society, as they are promoting the idea that it is cool to be dumb. Jon claims that the fact that stupidity is celebrated makes no sense to him at all.
Hamm explained, “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.” Jon then went on to admitted that he finds it ridiculous that such behaviour is rewarded so highly.
He added, “Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly. And incuriousness has become cool... It's celebrated. It doesn't make sense to me.”
