Wow, there is a website dedicated toÂ hatingÂ on Kim Kardashian and every company that she is linked to. The site,Â BoycottKim.com has gained the attention of Kim’sÂ representationÂ and are actively trying to pull downÂ theÂ site and file a complaint against them. The site has gained over 500,000 signatures in support of boycotting Kim and all the companies associated with her and her family…Harsh!
According to the NYDailyNews,
BoycottKim.com appears to be roiling the representatives of its intended target.
The online petition that asks signers to stop doing business with the companies that do business with Kim Kardashian has attracted more than 500,000 signatures –and saber-rattling lawyers for the reality star.
The websiteâ€™s California-based founder, who requested anonymity, was hoping to reach 350,000 signatures when we wrote about the petition on Dec. 21. Since then, BoycottKim.com has added more than 213,000 signatures as well as online content that spotlights some of the negative media that Kardashian and her family have attracted recently.
According to the founder, shortly after he added these new features, he was contacted by the Kardashian familyâ€™s general counsel Christopher T. Wilson .
The founder claims Wilson told him that another lawyer who represents the family, Martin Singer, intended to file a criminal harassment complaint against him.
â€œThey try to scare you,â€ the founder says. â€œThey do not want bad publicity.â€
During a lengthy phone conversation, the founder says Wilson expressed dismay over a section of the site which urged readers to contact Singer to voice their displeasure over published reports that products the Kardashians endorsed were made in Chinese sweatshops. (Singerâ€™s name has since been removed.)
The founder also says Wilson insisted that another section of the website that claimed Singer had engaged in the â€œlegal bullyingâ€ of Kimâ€™s former publicist Jonathan Jaxson was “factually incorrect.”
The founder says that his attorney David Henshaw subsequently took part in a conference call with both Wilson and Singer.
Henshaw declined to comment for this story. Wilson and Singer did not respond to our requests for comment, but our calls to their offices prompted a call from Kardashianâ€™s publicity firm PMK, which ultimately did not comment on the matter.
The founder of the BoycottKim website contends that threats of legal action against him are laughable. He notes that the site â€œdid not encourage anyone to harassâ€ Singer, but rather â€œencouraged them to call with their own personal opinion.”
The site’s popularity has skyrocketed since the petition was launched Nov. 2. Now that the site has passed 500,000 signatures, the founder says heâ€™s shooting for one million.
BoycottKim.com claims the reality star and her family “are a stain on our culture” and “an embarrassment for our country.” The petition’s goal is to attract as many signatures as possible in hopes of influencing Kardashian’s sponsors to end their relationship with her.
I do not agree withÂ theÂ site…I love Kim! But to each his/her own, right?
