Kim Kardashian can now officially say she attended Harvard... and people are not impressed.
Just to be clear, the social media mogul didn't take any classes. Instead, she was the one teaching.
Kardashian, 42, was invited to lecture at the Ivy League college's prestigious business school.
"I spoke At Harvard Business School yesterday for a class called HBS Moving Beyond DTC. The class’s assignment was to learn about Skims, so my partner Jens and I spoke about our marketing, our challenges and our greatest wins," Kardashian said on social media.
"I’m so proud of Skims and the thought that it is a course being studied at Harvard is just crazy."
She went on to say attending Harvard was a 'bucket list' dream come true, which was a red flag to a bull for many social media users.
Instead of congratulating the Skims founder, commenters instead lashed out at both Kardashian and university
One user said: "Harvard should be ashamed of themselves."
Another commented: "And just like that Harvard’s prestige has evaporated into thin air in my mind.”
A third added: "Getting a college degree should’ve been on your bucket list."
While another said: "If you have money, you can do anything."
Despite the overwhelming number of people savaging her for her lecture and related life achievements, some did jump to Kardashian's defence.
One user said: I love how people are being rude and acting like she doesn’t deserve this. She is an extremely successful business woman and she’s awesome at marketing and branding. We all can see your green goblin of jealousy, Karen."
Another jumped in with a Legally Blonde reference: "Elle Woods, is that you?"
Of course, Kardashian is no stranger when it comes to dishing out life and business advice.
Back in March 2022, in an interview with Variety, Kardashian didn't hold back when accusing, specifically women, of being lazy, telling them: "Get your f**king ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days."
Somewhat unsurprisingly, the socialite billionaire faced fierce criticism online for her comments.
On Angie Martinez's IRL Podcast, Kim was asked by the host whether there's ever been any criticism she's received which she's looked back on and felt was 'fair' or wanted to 'self-correct', before mentioning her Variety interview comments.
Kardashian admitted she regretted her phrasing, before doubling down on her comments and claimed the Covid-19 pandemic has made people lazy.
