Kim Kardashian and her family went viral on Wednesday when a clip about the “work ethic” of women in business was shared by Variety.
In the video featuring, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and mom Kris Jenner, Kim said she had the best advice for women in business.
“I have the best advice for women in business,” she said in the interview. “Get your f**king ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”

Let’s just say her words did not sit well with everyone, including actress Jameela Jamil who called her out for her very ‘privileged’ advice.
I think if you grew up in Beverly Hills with super successful parents in what was simply a smaller mansion… nobody needs to hear your thoughts on success/work ethic. This same 24 hours in the day shit is a nightmare. 99.9% of the world grew up with a VERY different 24 hours.
Yahoo said – Sounds a little tone-deaf coming from her privileged background.
There are so many women in business who are running full-time jobs in and out of the home simultaneously.
They don’t have the same access to nannies, chefs, and personal assistants — they are working very hard alone or with their partners to keep their families happy and functioning.
The rest of Twitter had a lot to say too!

I’m curious how strong Kim’s work ethic would be if we took away her assets, saddled her with oppressive loans, and made all her jobs pay minimum wage.

y’all really going to sit here and act like she didnt work hard to build her own brands and business? yes she grew up in beverly hills but THATS HER PARENTS MONEY. after she hit 18 she wasnt entitled to it. people whose family have money still have to get their own.

Love Kim Kardashian berating women who don't want to "work" when she was born into high society in LA and benefited greatly from the privilege that provided the platform for her to continue poaching from Black women originators. You just can't make this shit up!

What do you think about Kim’s words, is it just tough love or did she have a gold spoon?
