Meghan McCain shared in an op-ed published by The daily mail his thoughts on Kardashian’s recent comments about work, saying in part “they should all know better.”

“The unique experience of having successful or famous parents provides specific and special opportunities that are unavailable to the vast majority of people, and especially to those born into poverty,” she wrote. . “Simply put, they should all know better.”

Former “community” Yvette Nicole Brown posted in Jamil’s comments, adding “With the amount of help (housekeeping and otherwise) they’ve had in life, it’s easy to work hard,” Brown wrote. . “Scolding those not born on third base about their work ethic is ridiculously rude and disrespectful.”

Kardashian’s remarks were even discussed in a recent “Hot Topics” segment on “View”other hosts agreeing the comments were inappropriate.

“It also helps to be born rich, like she was,” Sunny Hostin said. “She had a rich dad, she had a mom who was a business owner, she’s pretty. I just think people who were born on third base shouldn’t talk about how easy it is to make a home run .”
