Kim Kardashian thinks Greta Thunberg is amazing, wants to help her with social media


Kim Kardashian West is spotted out and about during NYFW!

Kim Kardashian has been getting “political” for years now. She’s “reading the law” and studying to become a lawyer. She’s increasingly involved with justice reform and getting incarcerated people pardoned. She’s donating to political campaigns and speaking out about reproductive rights and gun control. And I’m sort of fine with all of it? I know there’s a mountain of shade for her law studies (and I have some doubts about it too), but I don’t hate the fact that Kim is trying something different, and that she’s actually trying to do sh-t beyond Instagram-influencing. She actually uses her celebrity and platform for *some* good things. That doesn’t negate the bad sh-t, of course not. Anyway, how do we feel about Kim Kardashian stanning Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old environmental activist?

Kim Kardashian revealed one of her dream dinner guests: teenage activist Greta Thunberg. The 38-year-old reality TV star on Tuesday said that she would love to break bread with the 16-year-old Swedish climate crusader, praising her as a “brave and amazing young woman.”

“She is such an amazing young girl, and so brave and courageous to stand up to these grown-ups that can be very scary and for her to be so open and honest is exactly what we need,” Kardashian told Reuters at the World Congress on Information Technology in Armenia. Kardashian — who has nearly 150 million Instagram followers — added that she was willing to lend her expertise to Thunberg’s parents on how to leverage the high school student’s social media platforms.

“Speaking on a big platform invites a lot of different opinions and personalities and how they (parents) manage that,” Kardashian said.

I say we just take Kim’s suggestion in the spirit in which it was offered. Kim wasn’t saying that Greta needs her help, Kim was just saying: I love what you’re doing and I could help. Greta truly has 2.75 million followers on Twitter, and being 16 years old, she knows how to do social media like a pro. What… could Kim really offer? “More selfies!” Or perhaps: “Do photo-op stunts to increase your followers.” That’s not really Greta’s vibe. But whatever, I guess Kim was just trying to be helpful.

    I will take the offer for what it is from Kim and nothing more. I just think she is trying to be nice.

  2. Mina says:

    Stay the hell away from her, you vulture.

    Here’s a reminder that her husband is basically a cult leader now and was just days ago off again on one of his manic screeds about he’s all in on the MAGA train and Kim was laying around being fine with it. She can fall off a cliff with the rest of the family.

    • Taylor says:

      I really urge you to reconsider using a term like “manic” in such a negative way. Manic in regards to bipolar disorder is truly not a choice and something he likely can’t control. I recommend reading “An Unquiet Mind” for more insight into bipolar disorder and perhaps you will choose different words to express your opinions and gain some understanding that not everyone will be able to live up to your expectations.

      • Grey says:

        How very condescending. Manic is an apt descriptor.

      • Athyrmose says:

        You’re the one being condescending here. You should probably add the book being suggested to your reading list as well, and google the phrase ‘ableist slur.’

      • Taylor says:

        @Grey… urrr… I am not really against using the term “manic” in an appropriate fashion (IE., I believe him to be in a manic state). But to use it in this context is of absolutely no value to society. This may not be an issue you champion or are familiar with or affected by, however it is one that I choose to speak up for. Even if you were a qualified medical professional, unless you are currently involved in his treatment, to say “manic” is an apt descriptor is inaccurate. This can be extremely hurtful to people suffering from mental disorders and mental health crises as well as the people around them trying to survive in their partners/friends/family’s lives. Can you imagine if Kim Kardashian happened to read “just days ago off again on one of his manic screeds about he’s all in on the MAGA train and Kim was laying around being fine with it. She can fall off a cliff with the rest of the family.”. Yikes. Would you ever say that to a friend whose husband is going through such a thing? Would you say that if you knew they were struggling, if you knew they were trying desperately to regain control of their lives and minds? Apologies if I offended anyone and came across condescending, however I do feel that it is absolutely a reasonable request to redirect your language.

        Im bipolar I, II, and Mixed episode, rapid cycle.
        There is no way Kanye isn’t bipolar and on a mania spree.
        Is he other things too? Yes at the least he is a narcissist.
        But hearing him speak, seeing his behaviors.. with all my personal and family experience with the different ways bipolar disorder manifests, dude is bipolar.

  3. Athyrmose says:

    Yikes on bikes. Here’s hoping that Greta’s parents refuse, or at the very least limit any contact, or influence, from Kim to themselves, and keep Kim far away from Greta.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    Greta organized an international strike that had millions of kids march out of their schools to their government buildings in protest. She was invited to speak at the United Nations General Assembly. She is nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. She does not need Kim Kardashian. The pairing I would like to see is Greta and Malala.

  5. Eliza says:

    Private Plane Kim wants to help Greta with social media? She suggested more skin? Latex? Luxury items promoted? Inserting yourself into scandal to get an extra byline? Paying the Daily Mail for daily content?

    Greta is hot right now, and Kim knows how to get a headline. Greta doesnt need Kim she’s got this!

  6. Hannah says:

    It is good that she is starting to pay attention to Greta Thunberg’s ideas. In the interview she also said that North was encouraging her to be more environmentally aware at home and recycle. All of this is all well and good, however given what a glutton for consumerism she and her family appear to be, she appears to be missing out on what the fundamental message is – use less and think about the impact on the planet of your choices. I would be more interested to find out if she was going to cut back on purchasing, the lavish and needless excess stuff for parties, cut back on flying privately (her and kanye hiring out a 747 just for themselves was shockingly wasteful and thoughtless) and most crucially what her company could be doing to cut out single use packaging for her cosmetics, fragrances, shapewear etc. Otherwise Greta’s message just appears to have gone in one ear, out the other.

    • ooshpick says:

      amen to all of this. kapitalism Kardashian style is part of the problem.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      What is North- 4 or 5? How ecologically aware can a child of that age be? I think that is garbage.

      • Lady D says:

        North might be getting the message in school. Here, they learn about recycling in pre-K.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        @Lady D-
        I thought about that after submitting, but still it is likely parroting what she’s told at that age, and unlikely that it is a conviction. She’s too young for that, as far as abstract thought and general brain development goes. Just my $0.02.

    • Sid says:

      No surprise she is missing out on the fundamental message. Ultimately all she seems to care about is extending the longevity of her brand and she is currently in the “I need to be taken more seriously” phase of that, so jumping onto the latest hot button social issue without understanding it is par for the course.

    • My3cents says:

      Sadly the only recycling that goes on in that family is the lipo to ass they’ve mastered.

    Correction:

    “Kim Kardashian thinks Greta Thunberg’s SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT STATS ARE amazing, AT A TIME WHEN HERS ARE DECLINING, AND wants GRETA to help her (KIM’S) with social media STATS.”

  8. Mar says:

    Anything for publicity

    But ….. I see positive things coming out of it as our last hope is the next generation and what they believe in.

  9. Jules says:

    Predator looking for fresh prey.

  10. kerwood says:

    I hope Greta has people with sense around her to protect from this woman. Kardashian sees an opportunity to leech on to someone with a great deal of popularity. I guess the family has drained Kanye dry and is looking for a new victim.

  11. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    LOL. Greta is doing a fantastic job on her own, promoting her first attempt at activism.

    She doesn’t need pro-tips from someone who entered the scene because of a sex tape &; her last name.

    What a joke.

  12. Luna says:

    Yes, I’m sure the Joan dé Arc of preserving our ability to survive on this planet is in dire need of help from the carefully sculpted face of conspicuous consumption.

  13. usedtobe says:

    I can’t even listen or read Kim Kardashian saying anything. She comes across as a ditzy, valley girl -always!

  14. agnes says:

    As if Greta Thunberg would need Kim’s help on that (or any other) field. Tsk.

  15. Pati says:

    She could help by avoiding renting boings for private trips and all the conspicuous consumption to begin with…

  16. barbwire says:

    well at the mo the Kardashian’s socials have done sweet jack §hit to POSITIVELY uplift anyone’s media profile…kanye is dust in the wind and all kinds of krazy is happening in each daughter’s relationship. Fix whatever is broken in your own house with however much silicone sealant you need Kim…just leave Greta out of it. Can you imagine how Trump will somehow hail it as a warped victory? like invasion of the Borg (sorry Star Trek fans)

  17. ME says:

    1. Kim was thinking about HERSELF. She always attaches herself to whomever is in the spotlight at the moment.

    2. Kim and her family don’t give a sh*t about the environment. Their carbon footprint is HUGE. She’s full of it.
