Kim Kardashian apologizes for her controversial “get up and work” comments

Kim Kardashian appeared on Good Morning America, where she responded to backlash over her recent advice to women in business, saying her controversial comments about work were “taken out of context.”

In an interview with Variety earlier this month, the 41-year-old television Kardashian said the advice she’d give to women is to “Get your [expletive] up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.” However on GMA, Kardashian said that her comments became a sound bite really with no context, explaning she made the remarks after being told that “After 20 years of being in the business, you’re famous for being famous. My whole tone and attitude changed with the previous question that went into that question about what advice would you give to women. The advice that I would give is just that having a social media presence and being on a reality show does not mean overnight success. You have to work really hard to get there, even if it seems like it is easy.”  Kardashian acknowledged that people work hard, saying, “It wasn’t a blanket statement towards women, or to feel like I don’t respect the work or think that they don’t work hard. I know that they do. That was taken out of context, but I’m really sorry if it was received that way.”

The Kardashian-Jenner family will return to television in the new Hulu series The Kardashians.
