Kim Kardashian: 'Stupidity'-insult denied by Jon Hamm as 'nothing personal, but cultural'
Actor Jon Hamm has clarified comments he made about Kim Kardashian.
Hamm aired his thoughtsabout Kardashian in a recent interview with Elle.
The artist told the publication: "We're at a place where the idea of being 'elite' is somehow considered a negative. Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated."
Kim later hit back at Hamm, calling his comments "careless" and defending her intelligence and success in business.
The 'Mad Men' star has since spoken out to explain his initial remarks, insisting that there was no harm meant by his words and that he was talking about culture in general, rather than any one person in particular.
"It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story. I don't know Ms. Kardashian, I know her public persona," he told E News.
"What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offence to it and that is her right."
