Wow, who knew Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm concerned himself with Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton.
But he does apparently: He’s blaming society’s ills on the pair, even though the extent of Paris’ relevance and reach is definitely questionable, in a new interview with Elle magazine.
The actor said, “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.”
Wow. Did he take offense to something Kim said?
And he continued, “Being a [f******] idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly. And incuriousness has become cool… It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”
