Kim Kardashian has been slammed after making comments that feel pretty similar to Molly-Mae Hague's 'we all have the same 24 hours in a day'.
In a recent interview with Variety, Kardashian made some comments about work ethic that haven't exactly gone down well.
The news comes weeks following the controversy surrounding Hague, after the influencer said everyone had the same amount of time in a day, noting: 'you’re given one life and it’s up to you what you do with it'.
Both Hague and Kardashian's comments have caused controversy because they, as Jameela Jamil points out, don't take into consideration people's individual circumstances and privilege.
So, what did Kardashian say that riled everyone up?
In an interview with Elizabeth Wagmeister, for Variety, Kardashian speaks on her advice for women in business.
'I have the best advice for women in business', she says. 'Get your f*cking ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days'.
Kardashian, who owns a beauty and shapewear empire, continued to say that the family work their 'asses off' and that she doesn't 'give a f*ck' about people who think they're famous just for being famous.
People took issue with the statement, likening it to Hague's comment, with Jamil taking to Instagram to share her view.
The post is a screenshot of a retweet from Jamil of Kardashian's quote, reading: 'I think if you grew up in Beverly Hills with super successful parents in what was simply a smaller mansion… nobody needs to hear your thoughts on success/work ethic. This same 24 hours in the day sh*t is a nightmare. 99.9% of the world grew up with a VERY different 24 hours'.
The actress and i weigh podcast host further explained her sentiments in her Instagram caption, noting that while the Kardashians are a 'super impressive family of business women' and have done a lot of 'hard work', making 'personal sacrifice' along the way, they still shouldn't be asked for their 'secret to success'.
This, Jamil says, is because 'I hope nobody holds themselves to the standards of people who were raised by millionaires'.
The actress finished her post by saying she wished people could learn how to brag without putting down people who have less.
Many people on social media agreed with Jamil, with one user writing: 'I'll be damned if I let a Kardashian lecture me on work ethic', while another added: 'Right? People understood that her success is inherited; she doesn’t understand WHY she succeeded!'
