IMDB Bio of the Day: Much to the Internets’ delight, IMDB writer Jon Hopwood profiled Kim Kardashian in a thoughtful, well-argued roast of an IMDB bio.
Kim Kardashian is emblematic of the shallowness of American culture in the first two decades of the new millennium. While some cultural critics call her the prime avatar of the “famous for being famous” faux celebrity crowd, she along with Paris Hilton is a new breed of cat whose celebrity comes from the release of a sex tape and the canny exploitation of the resulting publicity. Like her good friend Miss Hilton (their relationship predates Kim’s “celebrity”, Kardashian is possessed of photogenic good looks but is short of any other discernible talents outside of the bedroom. Both expanded their celebrity by becoming reality TV “stars”.
Porn pioneer Harry Reems has commented how surprised he is at how porn stars like Jenna Jameson are accepted now in mainstream culture. His life was ruined by his participation in porn in its “Golden Years”. As for Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, the release (accidental or not-so-accidental) of boudoir tapes didn’t result in shame but celebration. America like ancient Rome seems to have shuffled off the moral coil of virtue of the Republic and is now enjoying its Imperial self in an orgy of ignominy. It’s always more fun on the toboggan ride down the hill than it was schlepping up it in the first place.
Thankfully, a few screen grabs were snagged before the site was alerted to Hopwood’s shenanigans and took the bio down. Well played, Hopwood.
Yeah, man. Why can’t we go back to the good ol’ days when women should be shamed for having sex and men aren’t punished for releasing private videos of them doing so? How’re women going to learn their place in this world? I mean shit.
oh thank G-d there are men in this world still willing to slut-shame dem bitches, I was all about to be like “where have all the cowboys gone” but then Jon Hopwood rode in on his misogyny horse
I’m not even a fan of Kim Kardashian, but I’m willing to die on the hill of defending her because holy fuck am I sick of Kim Kardashian and any other girl with a bullshit reality tv career being held up as “emblematic of the shallowness of American culture.” Of all the horrible human beings who have risen to actual real world power in 21st America, a woman whose convinced people to pay to look at her is hardly emblematic.
thedailywhat really secretly hates women, doesn’t it? (nvr 4get their “DON’T YOU REMEMBER YOUR OWN ABUSE, RIHANNA? LET ME LINK YOU TO PICTURES/REPORTS OF YOUR OWN ABUSE.”)
there is nothing secret about TDW’s hatred for women, especially women who get money
Wait, bashing Kim Kardashian and her “rise to fame” is slut shaming now?
