Jon Hamm says Kim Kardashian comments were “accurate”

Jon Hamm says Kim Kardashian comments were “accurate”

Just when we thought the war of words between Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian was all over, the Mad Men star has re-ignited the feud. (Yay – we love a bit of celeb bitching!)

The outspoken actor was asked again about his comments on Kim and fellow Reality TV star/socialite Paris Hilton on the Today show, and particularly what he thought of Kim’s rebuttal in which she called Jon’s words “careless”,

“I don't think they were careless; I think they were accurate,” insisted the 41-year-old actor. “It's a part of our culture that I certainly don't identify with, and I don't really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility, and it's not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what it is, and here we are.”

Round one!

Jon first began his rant about Reality TV culture in April’s Elle by saying that, “Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f***ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly.”

Ouch!

“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion”

Kim soon responded to Jon’s unkind words with statement issued via Twitter, “I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” she said. “We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless.”

After Kim’s obvious upset at being branded an idiot, Jon backtracked slightly during another interview,
“It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story,” he told E! News. “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 offense to it, and that is her right.”

Well, he's certainly going to cause offense again. Who’s side are you on in this debate?
