How many hours a day do the Kartrashians employees in china work? How many days a week do they get off? What is the hourly wage for sewing up their label translated into american dollars?

The Kardashians haven't been to China to see for themselves either. They have no more business commenting one way or another on the article than Star does.

The trashines could care less if littelkids are making thier clothes for 50 cents and hour as long as they are getting rich. Until the publicfinds out about it then they well say oh we didnt know that. had no ieda the littel kids were working in sweat shop condtions.but it wont stop them from conuting to have thier line made by kids working in horribble condtions.lets waite and see how they try to sweep this under the rugg. so if you buy thier tra*****emsn then you are wearing somethign made off the back of childeren who are being abused to make kardahines fashions.
first kim exploits the peole of Hatti to try repair her im aje now they are abuseing children to make money. no big shocker we know karshines well do anythign for money I guess kyle range rover was bought off the backs of children being abused. Kris jenner well have to get off her old fatt ass and do Pr damge controll. mybe even be houled into court for child abuse.
sears sucks

Wow - praising R.Kelly (pedo, pee-pee man) for "Trapped in the Closet" and the ghetto staff - it seems as if TMZ is sliding further into the gutter. No wonder Nina Parker left to work at The Insider.

..EW..    

Just drop the Kardashian excuse... Almost everything sold in this country is made in somewhere else... usually China. So before "boycott the Kardashians," how about people stop buying things made outside the country? Stop shopping at Walmart, Target, K-mart, and all those corporations that take your money to another country!!! Funny how many people rather "pay cheaper" then buy something made in USA.

People have been talking about this petition for a good while on these comments. That's why it surprises me that you act like you don't know about it !!!

Evan's lecture about checking sources and making assumptions is laughable. TMZ is a second rate organization with no journalistic integrity.

This just proves to me that you people don't read these comments. Showing that you've never heard of that anti kardashion petition. F4rom what I've gathered, people have a dislike for even Ryan Seacrest right now because of that family. You people sit there, and studt these things then act dumb when someone brings it up??? How much are they paying you people? Or are you truly juswt not reading comments, and live in a bubble.

I've always known women to be competitive rather than sisterly, as a species. Women who are insecure, generally, don't like women who are attractive, intelligent, or successful in any way. Sad, but true. The K fam have it all, but it comes with a price. They could lesson the blow by being more compassionate about what others are experiencing in this economy. But their lack of understanding that is part of their downfall. Their spending of money as if it has no value is disconnected from the reality that most are experiencing. They should stop being "showy" with their purchases, and not talk like Valley girls when they're grown ups now. The values of Kris are being put upon her girls and Rob and Bruce are being immasculated. Kinda sad actually. They should do more for their community and less for themselves in order to change their tarnished reputations. Just a thought.

Of course they knew who thier clothes were being sewn by they are controll freaks on everythign and no detail is left unknown. when you read ho whorrible the conditons are for these childrens its heartbreaking . These kids need to be rescued! The kardshines should have to swtich places with them like slum lords do when they wont fix bulidings.
Let kim kris khole korutny all work in over 100 degrees not allwoed to got to the bathroom or look up work 84 hours a week for 15 dollars a month.sears hsould aslo be held acoutnable for ading and abedding the crimes against thses poor childern. we need to stop taking chinas imports if they wont improve the conditons and not expoit and abuse children.what lies are the trashines going to come up with are they going to say we didnt have clue who was making our products and why we were making 60 mil a year? Fruads!!
They just didnt think anayone would find out about it or lookinto it.now they are not only pronwhores they straite up are abuseing children to make a buck! sick moraless s*** bags they are. Rescue these children from the eveil kardshines ! if they were to come clean and say yahhw e knew about the child abuse but of course we didnt care cuz everyone does it mybe the attion could be shiffted to foucs on how to save thes children from thses conditons and to pressure china to stop doing this buy us not letting thier proudcts into the USA. I think trashines are hppy to be in the press even whenits negative cuz it feeds thier egos.
its so hyicrtiacl for kim to prance around hatti and then go and abuse children to make a buck .sears is elling clothes made of the backs of abused children they should be ashamed sears should be banned.
