Jerry Seinfeld Hates the Kardashians And Doesn’t Give a Damn Who Knows It
“These people are not doing anything interesting.”
Jerry Seinfeld is a long way from his days as a comic living a fun single guy’s life in the city. He’s a family man and is becoming an elder statesman of comedy and sounds like your grouchy old dad more all the time. The latest target of Seinfeld’s famous tendency to be annoyed with everything? The Kardashians.
Seinfeld told Mr Porter that he utterly lost his shit when he caught his young daughter “watching [Keeping Up With the Kardashians] on her phone in her bed.”
“I could not take that scene,” Seinfeld said. He explained: “For someone who for their whole life, television was the Olympics of being a comedian. It was only for the very best. You had to have everything. You had to go through all the different hierarchies of your career to get to television.”
“I’m offended by reality television on many levels,” continued the comedian, “and that show of course is the premier example of reality television. These people are not doing anything interesting. I lost my temper with that one.”
Of course this comes on the heels of Seinfeld’s incredibly awkward red carpet rejection of Kesha (which he talks about in the video above), thus sealing what seems like a newfound rep as the grouchy old dad comic.
Seinfeld is hard to ruffle so he’s probably fine with his reputation.
And given her recent tequila shot Instagram posts, we’re pretty sure Kim Kardashian, at least, isn’t bothered one bit by any of this.
