In an opinion editorial in the Daily Mail on Thursday, British journalist Piers Morgan said he is DONE with Kim Kardashian and her clan.
In a rant where he held nothing back, Morgan said what tipped him over the edge was Kardashian’s “pathethic new interview” with Ellen DeGeneres.
He didn’t have any nice words about Ellen either.
Below is the beginning paragraphs of his long rant:
I’m done with Kim Kardashian.
And her ghastly family.
Done. Done. DONE.
I just can’t stomach the sight or thought of any of these talentless, publicity-crazed, unctuously self-absorbed, vacuous wastrels for a single moment longer.
Not Kim, not Kendall, not Kylie, not Kourtney, not Kris, not Caitlyn – not ANY of them.
This feeling of utter, skin-crawling anathema towards all things Kardashian and Jenner has been creeping up inside my intestines for a while but it crystallised itself today in a blazing eruption of irritation and contempt.
In the words of Peter Finch’s news anchor character Howard Beale in the movie Network: ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’
What tipped me over the edge? Kim’s pathetic new interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the world’s most simpering chat show host and chief celebrity sycophant.
Here was a true meeting of galactic level insincerity.
Morgan admitted he almost felt sorry for Kardashian as she described being robbed at gunpoint in Paris last year, and said the experience had changed her…
But then I remembered it was Kim Kardashian we’re dealing with, so I went to her Twitter account to check how her new life of anti-materialism was going.
He raged in disgust at the merchandise Kardashian was selling to her 51 million followers, including an “Ass Tray” for $35, and a “Butt Pool Float” which is an inflatable swiming pool float shaped like a naked bottom selling for a whopping $98.
Morgan also notes how Kardashian has posted photos of herself flaunting her rear end in a marketing ploy to sell her products.
On the hit reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim is always careful to maintain an abstemious image – no drugs and very little alcohol.
But it would seem that once she’s hooked her young fans into THAT image of nice, decent purity, she then urges them on her social media sites to spend big money on stuff actively promoting a very different lifestyle.
It’s hugely profitable, and hugely cynical.
He continues, sharing his outrage over the influence Kardashian has over young people:
But when you have literally tens of millions of young female followers hanging on your every social media post, you surely have a great duty of care to send them the right messages?
For the world’s young girls to think the only way to get on in life as a woman is to strip naked in public and flip the bird is not just wrong, it’s dangerous.
Nor should they be encouraged to spend large amounts of money on accessories promoting the joy of drugs, when so many of them are still at school.
Kim Kardashian wants us to think she’s turned over a new leaf, that she’s renounced her old materialistic ways. That, as a mother of two young children herself, she has learned how to behave in a responsible fashion.
But she hasn’t.
The truth is that she’s now using her massive global platform to actively corrupt our kids.
And she doesn’t hesitate to aggressively exploit her own children as often as possible to further promote her brand through sites like Instagram, whilst pretending to prioritise their safety and interests.
Morgan notes that the rest of Kardashian’s family have followed suit in the “commercial game,” and that “it’s grown ugly; very, very ugly.”
Kim Kardashian’s now selling nudity, drugs, booze and high-risk sex to the youth of the world and making hundreds of millions of dollars in the process.
Do we really want someone like her to be the role model our young daughters look up to and want to emulate?
No, as I said at the start of this column, I’m done with Kim Kardashian and her ghastly family.
I want them gone from public life, expunged from the airwaves, thrown off the newsstands, and extinguished from the celebrity ether.
They’ve become a pitiful parody of stinking, sobbing hypocrisy that should no longer be encouraged or tolerated in civilised society.
It’s time to boot Kim Kardashian and her gigantic, surgically enhanced backside into the same obscurity from which she once crawled thanks to that infamous sex tape.
Morgan concludes by asking everyone to join him on the campaign to boycott the Kardashians by stating the following:
‘You gotta say, “I’m a human being, goddammit! My life has value!” So get up out of your chairs, go to the window, open it, stick your head out and yell: “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”

Morgan also went after Kardashian on Good Morning Britian when he stated that Kardashian’s cellulite was nothing to “celebrate.”
