Kim Kardashian responds to "get your f**cking ass up and work" backlash

Kim Kardashian responded to the backlash she received for her “tone deaf” comments in a Variety interview earlier this month, and people aren’t impressed.

The makeup and fashion mogul addressed her “get your f**cking ass up and work” comment, and the subsequent public reaction in an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

“That statement that I said was without questions and conversation around it, and it became a soundbite really with no context,” she said in the exclusive interview released on Monday.

The Skims owner went on to explain that the question posed to her before the question about advice for working women was about her family being “famous for being famous.” She says that influenced her tone and attitude going into the advice for working women.

Kardashian went on to clarify that having a social media presence and being on a reality show “doesn’t mean overnight success.”

“It wasn’t a blanket statement towards women, or to feel like I don’t respect the work, or think that they don’t work hard; I know that they do,” she said. “It was taken out of context, but I’m really sorry if it was received that way.”

The reality star turned businesswoman found herself in hot water because many thought her comments failed to acknowledge the money and immense privilege she comes from, which likely helped award her more opportunities than others.

While Kardashian may have said the word “sorry,” many are pointing out that it wasn’t a sincere apology.

“She didn’t really apologize for the comment; she apologized that everyone took it the wrong way,” one person tweeted.

Even with “context,” many still find her comment out of touch.

Others came to Kardashian’s defence.

On top of these comments, the Kardashian has also been under fire for allegedly not paying her housekeepers regularly and mistreating them.

Her family’s new show, The Kardashians, is set to premiere on Hulu in April, so we’re likely going to see her name in more headlines (positive or negative) soon.
