A web site blasting all things Kim Kardashian has finally gotten under the reality star’s skin.
Kim Kardashian has reportedly sicced her high-powered lawyers on the founder of BoycottKim.com, a web site that claims, among other things, that the Kardashians are “un-American” and that the family is "a stain on our culture" and "an embarrassment for our country."
The founder of BoycottKim.com was contacted by the Kardashian family’s general counsel Christopher T. Wilson, who said that hard-boiled Hollywood attorney Martin Singer intended to file a criminal harassment complaint against him.
“They try to scare you,” the web site’s founder, who laughed off the threats, told the New York Daily News. “They do not want bad publicity.”
During what is described as a “lengthy phone conversation” between the web site’s founder and Wilson, the attorney “expressed dismay” over an item on the site suggesting that readers contact Singer to voice their opinion on published reports that Kardashian-endorsed products were made in Chinese sweatshops.
The founder of BoycottKim.com, who wishes to remain anonymous, claims that he “did not encourage anyone to harass” Singer, but instead “encouraged them to call with their own personal opinion." Singer's name and contact information has since been removed from the site.
BoycottKim.com has gathered more than 512,000 signatures from people who have pledged not to do business with companies associated with the Kardashian clan.
