Celebrities Suck    

if you purchase clothing by a celeb and it's made anywhere out of the USA that means that country is charging them less for labor. All you have to do is read the label it will either say made in the USA, Vietnam, China, Mexico etc. As we all know most of the US products come from china/foreign countries.

BORING non-story!!!
This is a non -story.

All of cebrity clothings lines are made in China, Indai, etc. by child labor, cheaply paid workforce.
Jesica Simpson Collection, Jacklyn Smith for KMart, Beyonce's House of DeReon, all clothing from Walmart and Sears, all sports clothing from sports shops at the malls, AirJordans, and the list is endless.
Getting after Kim K for her fraudulent wedding that raked her a big payday from vendors, E!, designers, etc. is ok.
Raking the Kardashians over the coals for this , swetshop, is not fair.

Accuse them of whatever you want, but they would not knowingly condone their clothing line to be made from slave labor. Get a grip!

This isn't a Kardashian issue. This is a corporate american issue. Why would a company choose to go to another country if they were going to pay fair wages, humane working conditions, and then import their goods back to the US? Clearly everything made in foreign countries have unfair wages and poor working conditions. That's what american companies do to bring you the low prices. just sayin
