There’s certainly a lot of hate being spewed toward Kim Kardashian and her family in the wake of her 72-day marriage. One woman is so incensed at all the fakeness and vanity that she has put up a petition asking the E! entertainment channel to pull the plug on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and all of its spin-offs, which now include KhloÃ© and Malika Take Miami (originally Kourtney and KhloÃ© Take Miami), Kourtney and Kim Take New York and KhloÃ© & Lamar.
The petition, which is posted on GoPetition, asks that E! “remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” said petition organizer Cyndy Snider. Why does she want the Kardashians taken down? She and her supporters “feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
Cyndy Snider points out that while the antics of Kim Kardashian and her family are mindless entertainment for some, “it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them.” However much momager Kris Jenner keeps telling everyone that her daughters work hard for their money, Cyndy Snider wants to remind everyone that “the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.”
Will the petition have any effect at all? Not likely, since all the hoopla over the wedding and divorce have only increased the family’s fame. Even people who don’t watch reality TV were talking about the quickie divorce and analyzing whether the marriage was fake or not. No way is E! going to drop a family that brings them so much ratings and publicity.
