Kardashian haters launch boycott website
A campaign to boycott any and only Kardashian-endorsed products and businesses is gaining steam online.
Some fans of the Anti-Kardashian Movement have launched a website calling on the public to boycott the reality dynasty.
BoycottKim.com brands itself as a full on movement to end the Kardashians' reign on the small screen and beyond by boycotting products sold and marketed by the family.
The site features a petition and a list of Kardashian endorsements to boycott. The logos of brands and stores affiliated with socialite Kim K. and her famous family are also displayed. Boycotters vow not to shop in any stores that carry Kardashian-branded merchandise.
The Marriage Counselor, the Tyler Perry film in which Kim was cast in a bit role, is on the boycott list. Anti-Kardashian proponents are also calling on fans to shun Macy's and E!, which airs a bevy of reality soaps starring various members of the famous family.
"Boycott Kim Kardashian and all that she stands for by going after those who hire her and give her incentive to continue to pollute our culture," the site reads. "We will measure our success as these brands have little choice to [f]ire Kim Kardashian and think twice about hiring someone like her ever again."
The goal is almost met.
As of Thursday morning, over 300,000 people had signed an agreement vowing to boycott the Kardashians. The Boycott the Kardashians Facebook page has received thousands of likes and a host of comments.
"It's about time someone brought this out. All mothers and fathers under 35 years of age, pay attention! Watch how your children react to Kim Kardashian and how they revere her as some type of goddess and not what she really is… Please turn their hearts away from anything KARDASHIAN!" one respondent, Orlando Vergara, writes.
The movement follows the No More Kardashian petition that made headlines last month. That initiative, launched by Oklahoma mom Cyndy Snider, labeled the Kardashians frauds and implored the E! Network to pull the plug on its litany of Kardashian-related shows.
"These shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption," the petition read.
"We are respectfully requesting that your network [E!] find other shows to air. Keeping up with the Kardashians is just not viewing that we the public would like to see from your network. Enough is enough."
It looks like the Down with the Kardashians movement is already spreading. A bevy of famous names have recently voiced their disgust at Kim's decision to divorce Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage, but now the hoopster has been given a big fat boo, too… literally
The basketballer returned to his game on Wednesday after signing to the New Jersey Nets for an $8 million a year paycheck. And while he appeared to enjoy getting his bounce on, it seems the crowd wasn't so keen.
Kris, 26, got the "boo" treatment as his Nets took on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan.
"That was not a smattering of boos. That's villain in the Garden kind of boo," said the game's commentator.
Earlier in the week, the baller was dubbed the most disliked player in the NBA by Forbes magazine.
