Megyn Kelly blasted Kim Kardashian’s response to Balenciaga’s child “BDSM” photo shoot scandal, saying that the “money is worth more” to the reality star “than her morals,” as she called on Kardashian to immediately distance herself from the brand.
During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Tuesday, the host was speaking with Carrie Prejean Boller, mom activist and former Miss USA, about the reality star’s inability to take a stand in the Balenciaga scandal, a brand with which she’s become synonymous.
The former Fox News host started by reading the statement that Kardashian finally released stating that she had been quiet for a few days because she wanted a chance to speak to the team to find out “how this could’ve happened.”
“Who gives a s*** how it happened,” Kelly replied. “Just put out a statement, ‘It’s deeply wrong and I will speak with them. But this is effed up.’ It’s really not that hard. She’s too busy trying to get criminals out of jail.”
Kelly noted how the reality star has also shared how she was “disgusted” with the ad and was “re-evaluating” her relationship with the brand, as previously reported.
“You were part of it,” the host blasted. “You wore the stupid black veil. You put your kids in Balenciaga. You’ve been seeing them [Balenciaga] with the teddy bears. They did the thing with the Supreme Court opinion. They did the thing with the little girls. Like, what do you mean re-evaluating? What is to re-evaluate? They’re sorry.”
“They are sorry now because people like you [Boller] made a thing of it and it’s become a PR nightmare for them,” she added. “She [Kardashian] launched her career with a sex tape, which she then pretended was released against her will. But her partner in that video has come out publicly saying that they worked on it together and Kris Jenner marketed it like a pimp.”
“The country’s made her [Kardashian] a billionaire, and she can’t be bothered to do the right thing when the circumstances are staring her dead in the face,” the former Fox News host continued. “She’s exploited her own children, just the same way her mother exploited her. And now, she doesn’t see the ethical lines … and I don’t think Balenciaga is gonna get away with this. I think the blowback will continue and if this is a PR stunt, they’ll soon be out of business.”
Boller agreed, and said “The Kardashians” star “thought that this would go away” and “she could enjoy her Thanksgiving with her family, and it’s not going away.”
