Kim Kardashian discusses fame, missteps at Forbes summit
NEW YORK — Kim Kardashian West said online negativity affects her, but she’s worried more about its impact when it happens to others.
The businesswoman and reality television star told The Associated Press Tuesday that she relies on her strong bonds to her family when the online negativity gets too much. Kardashian West’s comments came before she participated in a keynote conversation at the annual Forbes Women’s Summit.
She is one of the top 50 earning celebrities in a Forbes ranking released earlier this week.
Kardashian West, which has a combined 180 million followers on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram — many of them young girls, said she takes her role model status seriously. And despite her mistakes, she said she hopes her followers would see someone who’s worked hard to reach her goals.
