Someone has decided to take the time and energy to post a petition to “boycott the Kardashians”. To that end I only have two responses—”good luck” and “change the channel”.
I have long been one who doesn’t keep up with the Kardashian’s, and if Kim Kardashian weren’t a) always linked up with some pro athlete, b) on the cover of another gossip magazine, or c) in my Twitter feed, I would have no idea who she is nor why her presence on television, or anywhere else, is worth my giving a rat’s backside.
I’ve never watched one episode of the show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” so I have no idea who any of Kim Kardashian’s sisters are, if they are “famous” in their own right, and I can say without hesitation that this will be the case indefinitely.
That said, I realize there are plenty of people that not only enjoy watching and chronicling every move the Kardashian family makes but who genuinely like them and what they bring to pop culture— entertainment wise. As a matter of fact, the popularity of the Kardshians is such that they have made millionsof dollars just for being who they are and nothing more.
And, to be quite frank, no petition is likely to change that anytime soon.
The best way to show the Kardashians just how little you intend to keep up with their idiocy is to change the channel. E! won’t bother airing a show that isn’t faring well with their viewers—no petition needed—just stop watching. Otherwise you stand to look like a loon who’s looking for 15-minutes of her own.
Man, the “causes” people choose to place their efforts into amuse me—scratching my head.
