"We're at a place where the idea of being 'elite' is somehow considered negative," Hamm told Elle. "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**kng idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly."
In response, Kim Kardashian wrote on Twitter, "I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life."
"We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, 'stupid,' is in my opinion careless," Kardashian added.
Hamm could not immediately be reached for comment.
