Kalm it down, Kim

Dear Kim Kardashian West,

Thank you so much for teaching teenagers how to be selfish. Really, thanks for the important lesson. It was on July 17 when you graced the world with this wonderful lesson, when you leaked a snapchat video revealing that Taylor Swift wronged your husband. And there is no denying that she did, but how and when you did this was wrong. You see, it was just 10 days prior when Philando Castile and Alton Sterling were victims of police brutality. The country was still processing this information, trying to take a stand against this huge social issue, and you took that publicity away from them. 

People seem to care more about Justin Bieber deactivating his Instagram account than the natural disaster in Louisiana or the earthquake in Italy.”

I was once a fan of yours. I watched “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” whenever a new episode came out; I would defend you in arguments when people would say derogatory terms about you. But this cannot be forgiven. I understand that Taylor Swift wronged your husband and that you as a wife felt you had to defend him, but if you really felt that way, you would’ve leaked the video five months earlier right when she said she had nothing to do with the lyrics from Kanye West’s “Famous.” Instead, you decided to leak the video in July to create more publicity for your show. For someone who has a combined Twitter and Instagram following of 127.9 million people, you decided to ignore the real issues going on in this world, just so that you could make more money off of your show.

Granted it’s not completely your fault; it’s our fault as teenagers too. We took this feud and exploded it, not dealing with the actual issues going on around the world. People seem to care more about Justin Bieber deactivating his Instagram account than the natural disaster in Louisiana or the earthquake in Italy. People my age tend to focus more on your daily activities rather than the Syrian refugee crisis.

So Kim, you have a massive following, more people than there are in most countries. All I am saying is that maybe you should post more about social issues so we can make this world a better place. And it’s our job as the next generation to focus on the struggles everyone shares. I get it that you are not obligated to Tweet or Instagram about any of this. But you have a choice to make, you have this large following and you could use it for you or you could use it for the world.

With love,

Jai
