The Kardashians Use Chinese Slave Labor

Welcome to the most inevitable, not-at-all surprising news to come out of the Kardashian Kunt Kabal that I’m literally kicking myself for not making a Chinese slave labor joke over all these years. Seriously, these people sell clothing, where the hell did I think it came from? A sewing circle at a raw foods commune? Stupid. TMZ reports:

A human rights group is investigating claims that workers in China — as young as 16 — are working in squalid conditions to manufacture merchandise for the K-Dash by Kardashian label, the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle, according to a Star Magazine investigation.
The institute for Global Labour and Human Rights confirms with TMZ … they have launched an investigation, amidst claims the Kardashians’ products are produced in factories wreaking of stench from sewage, with temperatures north of 100 degrees. An official from the organization tells TMZ, conditions in the factories that manufacture Kardashian products are “horrific.”

Kris Jenner is, of course, denying the claims, so see the post about Kim in Haiti when you’re done reading this:

“As far as I know the factories that are used to manufacture the Kardashian clothing and shoes have nothing terrible going on at all and the factories are very well policed and meet factory standards.” Kris says she has not visited the factories in China.

I think what I love most about this latest scandal is it shows just how absolutely fucking retarded Kris Jenner is at business management. Not only has she managed to let Kim tip their entire money-grubbing hand by divorcing Kris Humphries once she finished exchanging the wedding gifts for Rolexes, she somehow found a way to follow that up with a sweatshop scandal four days before Christmas. Next we’re going to find out Khloe ate the real Santa Claus and Osama bin Laden spent a summer in their pool house turning Kendall and Kylie into sleeper agents. “That’s right, my dahlings, death to America. But first, you wear the booty shorts. Americans love children in booty shorts. Courtney, show them what Osama means.”

    The empire is unraveling at an alarming rate, they must be in full freak out mode now. Didn’t that bitch Kim also get store credit for all the gifts that people bought her for the wedding and buy Rolexes for her and her family?

  6. Archie

    Um, everyone uses Chinese slave labour. I tend not to buy things made in China for that reason but to pick on the Kardashians when everyone else is doing the same thing seems rather silly.

    • Frank Burns

      So, if lots of people are doing something wrong, no one should be held accountable? Seems rather silly.

      • Archie

        I’m all for ending sweatshop labour but this post makes it sound like the Kardashians are doing something that is so out of the ordinary and I don’t think that’s right. I didn’t see a post calling out Wal-Mart for doing the same thing on a much bigger scale.

      • Frank Burns

        Got it – if you don’t call out everyone, you can’t call out anyone.

      • creamed corn

        No, only the Kardashians should!

    • gumption

      I don’t understand where the suprise is. They make tacky, very low quality “merchandise” and for that one needs slave labor. They all knew it and could care less. What truly suprises me is that someone is buying this stuff. I never imagined in a million years someone would buy her perfume and it sold out I believe. It is one thing for the morbid curiosity but I had no idea people actually purchased their stuff. sad:(

  7. Evil Dick Tater

    Hey, what about the Chinese slave labor factory disguised as Kim’s ass? Imagine trying to do your job, knowing that at any moment The Giant Slippery Black Dragon Of Death could burst in, smooshing you and the other slaves. It’s nothing short of miraculous that ANY of those K-Dash seams are straight.

  8. JC

    “I mean, you talk about the factory smelling of sewage,” continued Jenner. “So does Kim, but nobody’s worrying about us having to work with her!”

  9. JC

    Also, hint to Kris Jenner about not being retarded: Instead of, “I don’t know anything about it, but I’m sure it’s fine based on nothing at all,” maybe go with, “I’d be very shocked and hurt to learn that there are bad conditions. We’re going to look into this.” Yeah, it’s bullshit, but it avoids that whole “Shut up! It’s not my fault I’m ignorant!” defense.

  10. That Bastard Tony

    The sad thing is once this story dies down (or when the “fake” video of how their clothing factories really look and operate is released), they will go back to using the same slave labor practices that Apple, Nike and so many others have used for years. The only poetic justice I see here would be Kim getting caught with drugs at a foreign airport and jailed for 30 years like in that movie Brokedown Palace. Let’s see your money buy your way out of a Thai prison.

    Hey Kris, Joan Rivers wants her nose back.

  14. Johnny P!

    You can’t blame poor Kris for not knowing about the slave-labour conditions in those factories. I mean, she’d have to pay a few surprise visits to them, right? And have you seen the price of an airfare ticket to China these days? Why, it’d practically bankrupt her!

  15. EricLr

    Don’t worry, Kim totally intends to see the factory for herself–just as soon as she can find a 5-star hotel nearby and a a bevy of local security guard to ensure than none of the workers touch her.

    Anyone surprised?

    Really?

    Mostly KJ stings because she didn’t see this coming (!?!) and can’t use the “everybody else does it” excuse now.
    The only thing the public enjoys MORE than putting trash like this up a pedestal is knocking them off of it.
    What makes the Kardashians vapid AND stupid is that they really think they have talents. Observe the over-reaching to stay on top – like the sham wedding, the self congratulatory books and the desperate media spin.
    Problem is – thirteen year old girls are fickle and they grow up.

    Kris Humphrie’s biggest insult in KK’s was that by the time she had kids with him, this gravy train would be over. They hate him for speaking the truth.

  18. For once, I think Kris is telling the truth: AS FAR AS SHE KNOWS there’s nothing TERRIBLE going on because the factories are WELL-POLICED and meet FACTORY STANDARDS. So there might be some pretty bad things going on, but they happen not to rise to the level of “terrible,” because they’re exactly in line with the “factory standards” that are normal in China, where the management commonly “polices” the nearly enslaved workers to keep them in line. Not that Kris really “knows” anything about it. It looks to me like she knew she couldn’t lie outright, because reporters would be on the next plane over there, so she tried to fudge, but the truth peeks through.

      why are their products being manufactured in China or any other country for that fact?? aren’t they supposed to be true blue Americans. they should be making their products in the good old USA and show their national pride. Nike makes it’s products in Malaysia in sweat shops and that country is run by a military regime that murders it’s people on a daily basis. China has always violated it’s people’s right and murders them on a regular basis. i hate these bitches and i hope it’s all true and they get the hell out of our faces.

    • BE

      Truth with the Kardashian spin is truly a flexible thing. Kim’s website did a big thing about DollHouse hit the NYTimes bestseller list – yeah right – it was mentioned under “other books selling.”

      Mostly they’ve successfully counted on everyone’s not caring or trusting them. After the marriage debacle, people are not only ticked but sharpening axes. I’m guessing 2012 is going to be an interesting year for the K Klan.

    That explains the Haiti trip. Scouting new manufacturing locations, I bet. What’s the matter, Kim, was Uganda too “human rightsy” for you?

  21. AteIsEnough

    This entire family is a scourge to the USA. PLEASE go the fuck away. Bruce…you must be so proud.

  22. Wolfboy

    O.J. should have killed Kris instead of Nichole.

    Somewhere, god is readying a lightning bolt and its headed straight at Kris Kardashians head.

  24. When I saw the title, I assumed that the slave labor was being used to operate some sort of ass restraining block and tackle system. Sweatshops just seem pedestrian.

  25. Inmate 12236969

    Some years ago I was stationed in Central America there was a sewing sweatshop that made clothes for a large American chain some hippy liberal goody people came to village in Central America got the factory to shut down the hippies went home back to the States; now nobody had a job and the little girls ended up working in the sex trade in a larger city.

    As for being made in USA you no one knows. Like where I work we send our products out with labeles; MADE IN USA. All our materials come from China we assemble the products in the USA—everybody does it.

  26. As much as I can’t even stand the letter “K” anymore because of these asssacks, everybody uses slave Chinese labor.

    Welcome to cheap clothes in America.

    Oh no! Working at 16?

    What’s the world coming to?

    • whatsmyface

      It’s not about that. It’s about the conditions, dude. I had a job when I was 16 but the place was air conditioned and didn’t reek of sewage.

  28. eww

    The Kardashians are America’s most disgusting family.

    Oh my God, not “as young as 16″.. umm, that’s not too young to have a job.

  32. kirby

    I know that the world will end in my lifetime because someone has to exist who can actually talk to Satan, and the Kardashians are that family. but don’t feel sorry for them because they think their talent IS making us hate or love them, though most hate them.

  33. Sheppy

    yeah, I’m going to jump on the “it’s probably no worse than any other factory” band wagon.

    We really need to boycott the fucking Kardashians/Jenners, for fucks sake people they are all a bunch of fucking LOSERS!! Quit posting shit about them, quit taking pictures of them, quit buying their shit, quit watching the fucking “reality shit show”. Just ignore the fuckers and if we’re lucky they will all die and go AWAY!!!

  41. pookiewookie

    This family couldnt care less about the conditions of those factories. Everyone knows about that. This horrible family probably will have lots more dirty laundry coming out soon since they are so money grubbing they will stop at nothing.

  42. forrest gump

    ……..DUMP HER & KHLOE, kim.
    no time to waste!!

    How is this anything new? Every smart business person buys parts from China and sells their products for an arm and a leg in other countries.

    ‘I don’t like the Kardashian family. But in this case, we have to look at this differently. Do the laws in China are the same than in USA ? Do we have to asks for those factories to shut their door because of the air-conditionning? What would happen to all those workers? If this would happen in USA factories, I would be scandilized, but working rules can be different in each countries.

  47. madmad

    Im not a fan of the kardashians but american companies are known for this kind of thing..not saying it is a good thing but cheap labor of this kind is practiced by many american companies i guess their empire is dying a slow death.

    Reality check: Just about all of our fashion products are made in a 3rd world country and worth no more than $5. It’s all marked up based on how much they are can brainwash us to spend on it. Since the bad economic situation came about, I have been doing a lot of shopping on Ebay from China and similar countries…let me tell you, people think I look wealthier than ever. They absolutely cannot tell what I spent $1000 on vs. what I ordered from china for $5.
