Boykott Kim Kardashian. That's the message being sent by thousands of people around the country.
Following her divorce from Kris Humphries - and subsequent ridiculous quotes that make the entire affair seem like one giant hoax - Kim has kome under fire like never before. A petition, in fact, is now available at GoPetition dot com that organizes an effort to get the entire Kardashian family away from our TV screens.
"We have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming," says organizer Cyndy Snider in a statement. "We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption."Well... of course. Clearly, the petition is useless and fairly absurd - as viewers continue to watch this nonsense, ratings have never been higher and E! is in the business of making money - but it doesn't make the concept any less hilarious. Adds Snider:
"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."
