As previously/depressingly reported, the Kim Kardashian video game stands to make its featured star $85 million this year.
And Ayelet Waldman is here to tell you why: Because it scams children out of their money!
The author (who is married to best-selling novelist Michae Chabon) WENT OFF on the Kardashians yesterday via Twitter, slamming the family for how Kim Kardashian: Hollywood reaps its crazy profits.
"Evil, vile Kardashian Hollywood tricked my 11 yr old into spending $120 in 2 days,” Waldman wrote. “He’s crying hysterically. Pox on those f*ckers."
According to Waldman, the game “bypassed our in-app purchase controls” automatically charging the family's credit card despite a set $20 monthly allowance on her son's account.
"Why is the Kardashian app such a high earner?" she asked. "Because it preys on children who don’t know how much it’s stealing from them. Pure evil.”
The Kardashian video game, in which users interact with an avatar of Kim and try to play their way to "A-lister" status, is on pace to clear $200 million in profits in 2014.
"I’m now funding Kim Kardashian’s lip gloss,” Waldman angrily joked, adding that there is a bright side to this financial disaster:
"My son f*cking hates the Kardashians now."
Get in line, kid. Get in line.
