The kardashian name has sunk to a whole new level.
According to several reports Monday, Kim Kardashian and her younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, appeared genuinely uninterested in a moment of silence held in honor of murdered teen Michael Brown and the civil unrest occurring in Ferguson, Mo.
According to the Daily Mail:
Kim Kardashian and her half-sisters are drawing fury over social media for appearing to send text messages while the audience at MTV’s Video Music Awards took a moment of silence in honor of slain black teenager Michael Brown.
Rapper Common was on stage to present the nominees for best hip hop video when he asked the crowd on Sunday to take a minute to think about Brown’s death and the racially-charged clashes between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.
‘Hip hop has always presented a voice for the revolution,’ the rapper told the crowd at the Forum in Inglewood. ‘I want us all to take a moment of silence for Mike Brown and for peace in this country and in the world.’
The video camera then cut to the Kardashians who seemed to be more engaged in their own world. Twitter blew up in rage over their nonchalant actions.

to ensure that the Kardashians are just as shallow and ignorant as you thought, Buzzfeed contacted MTV “to confirm that the footage of the Kardashians texting happened during the moment of silence and wasn’t on a delay and shown by mistake.” Josh Kurp on Uproxx called the gaffe “the moment that we reached Peak Kardashian”, something you probably thought we’d reached years ago.
