Another day, another Piers Morgan rant. Former America’s Got Talent judge went completely off about Keeping Up With The Kardashians. This took place during his appearance on the talk show This Morning. It was just announced that ‘KUWTK’ will be ending after its 20th season premieres in 2021.
Piers Morgan Dissed Kim Kardashian And ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’
Piers did not hold anything back when a montage of some clips from Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s began to play. “The few times I accidentally caught it on television, I could literally feel my brain cells starting to erode, I could feel myself getting more stupid,” he said. “They have done nothing but make the world more stupid and I’m afraid that the end of the Kardashians is a moment for… This is a rare moment in a horrible year when we should come together as a country in a moment of national jubilation.” Ouch, this definitely seems pretty harsh about a show that has amassed such a huge following over its 14-year run.
“They have taken us to the cleaners” he said. “Not a brain cell between them.” Considering the fact that Kim is going to law school currently, she would probably have a huge comeback to this. “They are a bunch of talentless wastrels who have made billions by conning the world that there is something compelling about them,” he continued.
Where Did All This Animosity Come From?
Naturally, everyone is wondering why Piers had such strong opinion about the famous family. “I used to hang out with them,” he confessed. “Kim Kardashian I got on fine with right until the moment she started doing the topless selfies and flipping the bird with Emily Ratajkowski and claiming it was in the name of feminism and liberation for women, what a load of nonsense.” He went on to say “I don’t like the idea of their gazillion followers, young, impressionable girls thinking this is how you get on in life.” This was a very specific reference to a selfie that Kim posted in 2016 where she bared her breasts with the model. They flipped off the camera. Exactly what this selfie of two beautiful women had to do with Piers remains to be seen.
Kim’s nude selfies that she continuously posted struck a nerve with Piers. “I know the old man’s $50 million in debt, Kim – but this is absurd. Want me to buy you some clothes?” Piers commented to her at the time. She replied “Hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes. That’s on some Ashley Madison type s–t #forresearch.” He continued on his recent tirade. He said he thinks the Kardashians are “ridiculous.”
Piers Morgan Said Kim Kardashian Used Husband Kanye West For Ratings
“They haven’t done this [canceled the show] because they’re tired of showing us about their lives. It’s the ratings” he said about the show. While it is true that the recent six-episode season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians had significantly lower ratings, this has not been confirmed as the reason for the decision. “It’s about the ratings. She had Kanye’s meltdown down as season 18!” Piers continued. “Kanye’s having an episode, whap-a-woo that’s season 19 sewn up!” He implied that Kim was using her husband’s very public battle with mental health issues to get higher ratings.
Do you think there is any truth to what Piers has been saying about Keeping Up With The Kardashians coming to an end?
