Jon Hamm didn't mean it personally when he called Kim Kardashian a f---ing idiot.

It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story, Hamm told E! News. I don't know Ms. Kardashian, I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it and that is her right.

Hamm told Elle UK, We're at a place where the idea of being 'elite' is somehow considered negative. Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f---ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly.

Kardashian took to Twitter to respond on Monday.

I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, stupid, is in my opinion careless.
