Kim Kardashian Breaks Silence On 'Tone Deaf' Women In Work Comments

Kim Kardashian Breaks Silence On 'Tone Deaf' Women In Work Comments

Kim Kardashian addressed her controversial comments in a new interview.

Kim Kardashian has finally addressed a comment she made about women in business that led to controversy stemming from her attitudes towards people in work.

The Kardashians star, 41, faced backlash in an interview with Variety alongside her sisters to promote their upcoming Hulu reality series.

Kim, Kourtney, 42, Khloé, 37 and momager Kris, 66, were asked to share advice for women in business.

"I have the best advice for women in business,” Kim told the publication. “Get your f*cking ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”

Kim addressed her controversial comments in a new interview. (

The comments were mentioned during a skit at the 94th Academy Awards on Sunday evening.

After being called “tone deaf” for her comments, Kim has now addressed the controversy in an ABC News interview with Robin Roberts.

The journalist asked the Skims entrepreneur what she had meant by her comments and what should we now say about it.

Kim was open about addressing the controversy and replied: "Well that statement that I said was without questions and conversation around it. It became a sound bite really with no context.”

Kim provided context for her comments about women in business. (

Kim said her “whole tone and attitude changed” when she was asked a question before the one that prompted her answers about work, which implied she was simply “famous for being famous,” despite having a career spanning two decades.

When asked what advice she would give to women in business, Kim clarified: “The advice that I would give is that having a social media presence and being on a reality show does not mean overnight success.

"And you have to really work hard, even if it might seem like it's easy and that you can build a really successful business off of social media and you can if you put in a lot of hard work.”

Kim was promoting her new reality series The Kardashians. (

She added: "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. It was taken out of context."

The reality star apologised “if it was received that way”.

The Kardashians premieres on 14th April on Disney+ in the UK and Hulu in the US.
