Channeling his straight-shooting character Don Draper, Jon Hamm put Kim Kardashian in her place Monday, dissing the curvaceous celebutard yet again. NBC “Today” show host Matt Lauer asked the AMC retro-series actor to clarify the earlier comments he made to Elle UK about Kardashian being a famous-for-being-famous “idiot,” which the reality starlet called “careless.” “I don’t think it was careless. I think it was accurate,” he told Lauer. “It’s part of the culture that I certainly don’t identify with,” he said of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star and her mentor Paris Hilton. “I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility, and it’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what it is and here we are.”If you watch as much “Mad Men” as we do, you know that Betty Draper is also an idiot. Do you agree with Jon Hamm’s comments or does Kimmy Cakes not get enough credit for all her “hard work”? Source AMC/TaoThe whole flap began when Hamm was quoted in the British women’s mag saying, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.” He added, “Being a f—–g idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” Kardashian, 31, who got her start in a “leaked” tape with Ray J, took umbrage at the slight. “Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs and creates, ‘stupid,’ is, in my opinion, careless,” she tweeted last Tuesday. Hamm, 41, back-pedaled a little later that day when E! News asked him about the comment. “It’s surprising to me that it has become remotely a story,” he told the celebrity channel. “I don’t know Ms. Kardashian; I know her public persona. “What I said was meant to be more on (the) pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it, and that is her right.” Vincent Kartheiser, who plays weaselly Pete Campbell on “Mad Men,” also piped up on NBC, backing Hamm’s indictment of the booty-ful Kardashian. “I agree,” Kartheiser told Lauer. “(Hamm) said it very eloquently. I agree with everything he said. I think our society enjoys to turn on the television and see someone who’s maybe awful and they can say, ‘Maybe I’m not as terrible as that person.’ ” But Betty Draper begs to differ. January Jones, who plays Hamm’s wife on “Mad Men,” last week told womencentric website Sheknows.com, “I watch a lot of reality TV. I love that show.” The reality-show star, who also is featured in “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” so far has not responded to Hamm’s latest remarks.
