Yet again, Kim K has broken the internet. That Kim Kardashian Variety interview—given alongside her sisters, Kourtney and Khloé, and momager Kris Jenner—is sparking huge backlash.
Ahead of The Kardashians on Hulu, the famous quartet decided to open up about their next phase of reality TV stardom and took the time to discuss what it's like to be a businesswoman.
Kim's advice for ladies in the office?
"I have the best advice for women in business," she revealed to the outlet. "Get your f****** a** up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days."
And with that, the virtual floodgates opened. This probably won't go down in the canon of Women's History Month quotes.

Truthfully, this statement would have probably been praised had it come from literally any other source. But given the Kardashian family's generational wealth, nepotism and privilege—the brood is worth an estimated $5 billion in total—the reaction to Kim's dose of girl power has not been kind.
Naturally, memes and opinions quickly surfaced on social media in response to the statement.

1. It makes a good ringtone
"Get your f****** a** up and work" makes for an interesting alarm clock. No TikTok sleep hacks needed.

Memes aside, truthfully, we should be encouraging women to work but not at the sacrifice of their mental health, happiness and wellbeing. Well said.
Did someone forget to @KimKardashian that the girlboss is dead? We’re not grinding to the bone, it’s 2022 we’re demanding our worth and taking care of your emotional, physical and mental health. #KimKardashianMarch 10, 2022
