"No More Kardashian" petition seeks removal of TV's trashiest family fromairwaves, but will E! listen?
Turns out that Michael Buble isn't the only one irked with Kim Kardashian. One Colorado woman has seen quite enough of the entire family, and she has started a petition to do something about it.
“It’s not per se the Kardashians themselves, it’s the show itself. It’s the value of the show and what it portrays,” Cyndy Snider told CBS4 Denver.
Snider plans to send the petition (fittingly titled "No More Kardashian") to E! Entertainment Television, creator of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and three spin-offs, in hopes that the abundance of concerned citizens will ignite a change in the network's programming.
It seems like it would be enough to simply pick up the remote and change the channel instead, but Snider complains that the Kardashian family is too ubiquitous to escape.
And they are. The family is featured on television shows and news, grocery store magazine covers and roadside billboards, endorsing products from alcohol to (there's no way those things work and you look terrible wearing them) Sketchers Shape-Ups.
At the time of writing, the petition had reached almost 150,000 signatures. Compare that to the 3.9 million viewers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on a Monday night in October, a few weeks before Kim Kardashian served papers to 72-day-hubby Kris Humphries.
Do you think this outcry is enough to make E! listen? Would Americans still be obsessed with the family even if the reality show were canceled?
