Standing Up for Khloe Kardashian, Unlikely Underdog

Let’s be honest, if you have an online journal, or like, if you have a pulse and breathe occasionally, you’ve probably been bullied. There have been some great anti-bully campaigns in the past few years, but like we still have a cross country trip where Titanic plays on repeat to make it feel like an even longer journey than it already is.

As someone who possibly takes comedy too seriously, I take offense to the term “making fun” because a joke with cruel intentions is hardly worth the breath it took to deliver it. I say possibly too seriously because it’s probably true, but also to point out that I, too, have flaws.

Basically, this is a blog post about how astonishingly cruel people are to Khloe Kardashian. In the context of celebreality she is arguably the best person. Just because she is rich and famous, doesn’t mean she doesn’t have feelings. No matter what a person’s socioeconomic status or background doesn’t mean anyone has the right to be actively cruel to anyone else. And don’t even get me started on people who pick on the mentally unstable a la Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes. Maybe I am a sucker and a bleeding heart, but I find empathy to be perhaps the greatest super power other than flying.

  1. Errr. No. She offers up her dignity for public consumption. She sells it. There’s a very easy way for her to stop being “Bullied” and that is to stop trying to attract fame for any other reason than because she is famous. She wants to stop being “bullied”? Let’s see her raising money for hospitals rather than modelling handbags and demanding we pay attention to her. No sympathy for her, no empathy.

  2. I don’t know Khloe Kardashian, but empathy is equal parts kindness, grace, and humility ~ it costs us nothing to extend to others and means everything when we’re the ones in need of it ourselves.
    I’ve only had one hater comment on my blog, but I want to promote a new slogan: Be Kind Online.
