Former Fox News star Megyn Kelly has dropped the hammer on Kim Kardashian, blasting the reality television star and her celebrity family as a “force of evil.”
Kelly warned that the Kardashians are promoting “disgusting vanity” that is corrupting society.
“I never want to see another picture of Kim Kardashian again,” the host blasted on SiriusXM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
“I am so sick of seeing her boobs and her ass every time I open the New York Post, The Daily Mail, whatever– I’m sick of it.
“And not just her, but all the sisters, too. Sick of it.
“It goes to the place where it just becomes so in-your-face that it bothers me.
“I object to J. Lo and Shakira showing their vag at the Super Bowl.
“Like I don’t want that. It’s gotta be situation appropriate.
“But I don’t really object to just women embracing their bodies or showing up their bodies.
“What I object to, back on the Kardashians, is the unrivaled vanity.
“Like the self-promotional, out-of-control focus on one’s self — ego, clicks, likes.
“They’re hugely responsible for that in our society,” Kelly warned.
“They didn’t do it by themselves, but more than any other they’ve had a terrible effect in that lane.
“And I do blame them. I do,” she asserted,
“I ask them, I interview them and I said, ‘Are you a force for good or are you a force for evil?’
“And they gave me their answer, but the more I’ve watched them over the years the more I think, net-net, it’s evil.
“I don’t think this is healthy.
“That’s what I object to, I think their disgusting vanity, which has spread like wildfire in our society, the selfie culture is abhorrent to me.”
As Slay News reported earlier this week, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged Kim Kardashian for touting a cryptocurrency on social media without disclosing the payment she received for the promotion.
The billionaire reality star promoted a digital asset offered and sold by EthereumMax.
“This case is a reminder that, when celebrities or influencers endorse investment opportunities, including crypto-asset securities, it doesn’t mean that those investment products are right for all investors,” said SEC Chair Gary Gensler.
“We encourage investors to consider an investment’s potential risks and opportunities in light of their own financial goals.”
“Ms. Kardashian’s case also serves as a reminder to celebrities and others that the law requires them to disclose to the public when and how much they are paid to promote investing in securities,” Gensler added.
Kardashian agreed to settle the charges and will pay $1.26 million in penalties, disgorgement, and interest.
She will also cooperate with the Commission’s ongoing investigation.
