Jon Hamm Isn’t Backing Down From Kim Kardashian Slam

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm was on ‘Today’ Monday morning, along with other members of the ‘Mad Men’ cast. The critically-acclaimed drama returns for its fifth season Sunday, hence the groupĀ appearance. But ‘Today’ host Matt Lauer would’ve been remiss if he didn’t ask Hamm to also address comments that he made last week about Kim Kardashian, in which he accused the reality TV star of being a “f—-g idiot” for the way she flaunts her stupidity.

In response, Kardashian called Hamm’s comments “careless,” and Lauer wanted to know what Hamm thought about that.

Hamm dismissed KK’s accusation of “carelessness” and then went on to double down on his criticism:

It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than that car-crash sensibility,” said Hamm. “It’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what it is and here we are.”

Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell on ‘Mad Men,’ was quick to agree with his co-star.

“I agree with everything he said,” Kartheiser told Lauer. “I mean, I think our society enjoys to turn on the television and seeing someone who is awful; they can say, ‘At least I’m not as terrible as that person.’”

Now that Hamm’s ‘Mad Men’ costarsĀ are getting behind him in this high-profile kerfuffle, it’s probably time for Kourtney or Khloe — or even Lamar Odom — to step up and get their girl’s back. Perhaps a ‘Mad Men’/’Keeping up with the Kardashians’ cage fight?
