Kardashian Fam

Prepping to SUE Over

Bogus Slave Labor Report

12/22/2011 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1221_kardashian_sisters_ex
The Kardashian family is preparing for war -- gearing up to unleash a legal attack on everyone who claimed their clothing line is manufactured in child slave labor sweat shops in China ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the family tell us ... Kris Jenner is furious -- claiming the guy who runs the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights had no right to accuse the Kardashian brands of wrongdoing because he has no tangible proof to back up his claims.

Kris must have seen I.G.L.H.R. honcho Charles Kernaghan on "TMZ Live" Wednesday -- when he flat out admitted he didn't actually go to the factories in question ... and is making the ASSUMPTION based on years of research on the Chinese manufacturing industry.

Jenner also believes Star Magazine's cover -- which screamed "Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal" -- was not only unfair ... but libelous ... and it should have to pay for any damage that has been caused to the brand's reputation.

As TMZ previously reported, Kris -- along with one of their manufacturing companies -- adamantly deny the use of child slave labor in their factories ... insisting they have people who are constantly patrolling for any possible violations.

Then you better sue that pig daughter of yours for ruining your "brands" reputation with that phony marriage of hers. That is what started the massive anger at all things Kardashian/Jenner.

TMZ YOU SAID SO YESTERDAY THAT MAMA WHORETRASHIAN DIDN'T VISIT THE SITE EITHER JUST LIKE THE EXPERT. So neither knows. But he told you on your live show yesterday that he's NEVER seen a factory that WASN'T a sweatshop in China in all of his TWENTY FIVE YEARS of investigating human rights violations. Are you telling us that the Whoretrashians just happen to be the exception and not the rule. You ranted on yesterday that research needed to be done before we call out the Whoretrashians. Are you effing serious??? In what universe do you live in Harvey? What will you say when these serious allegations are proven true? Because they will. It's only a matter of time. The Whoretrashian's don't give a F*CK about anyone else but themselves. Never have, never will. And as far as their "BRAND" goes-they blatantly rip off high end designers like Balenciaga. Why don't "YOU" do some research into their "BRAND" and compare the Balenciaga motorcycle bag to their version. Even though the Whoretrashian's use cheap *ss materials, the design is EXACTLY the same. Botkier slapped them with a cease and desist order and forced SEARS to remove their copycat bags from the shelves. This is evidence that they rip off designers and you REFUSE to print the truth. And it's not like they don't know they're ripping off high end designers because they bought the original authentic bags and use them everyday and certainly would't be caught dead with a fake. Ironic isn't it that the Fakest of fake don't wear fake but will sell fake to their idiot fans. STOP SPINNING AND REPORT THE TRUTH. Whoretrashianse are theives and human rights violators! HARVEY'S BEST BOY MIKE WALTERS IS SO FAR UP KIMMY'S *SS THAT A PROCTOLOGIST NEEDS TO GET HIM OUT.

Kathie Lee all over again. She hollered about it being untrue, then met with a factory worker who had been rescued from the place her clothing was made, then spoke out against it and announced sweeping changes that would be made and then Walmart squashed it. Same-o line. There is a reason apparel is made in China instead of USA and that is money-its cheaper there because of their wages/working conditions/lack of benefits etc....

The Kardashian's are nothing but fake,phony, self-righteous, spoiled bitches who think they are above everyone, I've never watched their lame shows. What is so great about them anyway? Why were they even "famous" to begin with? its quite obvious that most people are tired of this family, take their shows off the air they are not worth watching. In a few years people will say "who are the Kardashian's?"

they sure like to sue. I guess when you have not talent, well except for sex tapes, that's what you do. they're going to blame these reports for the fact that their clothes aren't selling. well, the clothes aren't selling because their horrible.

As if it ever crossed their minds before they inked the deal to check on the location and conditions under which their products would be manufactured. If the claims are not true, its not because of any due diligence on their part. They spend even less time vetting their business deals than their sexual partners.

This bunch of trash threaten to sue at the drop of a hat. What, they think they have sterling reputations to uphold? It all about the money with the K whores, but that's OK. When you are sue-happy in Hollywood, pretty soon no one will want to work with you or be associated with you and you know what that means! K ho's down the toilet! Yay!!!

Celebrities Suck    

anyone including me by commenting on here are making them relevant... Stop making them relevant by always commenting on anything that has to do with them. In a celebrities world bad publicity is better than no publicity..

She needs to look no further then the Piss Princess if sales are down. Nobody likes these people anymore, and Kim started it. People were pretty much tired of them to begin with, and Kim was icing on the cake.

So funny!! Last nite a DJ said she bought their crappy Shoedazzle shoes. Got them home and said they were made of plastic looking leather. Bow fell off the side before the nite was over when she wore them. Said they stunk from the phony leather..she called "pleather"..plastic leather. She said their shoes were a piece of chit...I've also heard their clothing smells funny...who knows what it is made of..being from China. How else could they sell the shoes for 39.95 unless they were made from crap..I personally have never seen anyone wearing any of their products. Another DJ said he was in Sears at a very popular LA Mall and not one person was in the Karasshian's clothing section. NOT ONE PERSON!! Thats with mark downs and Christmas!! FAIL!! The only way they can make any money is suing and they always say they are gonna sue...even Jonathan Chitban...when he supposedly was going to write a tell all...don't you wonder what was so telling that the KKKlan didnt want the public to know about?? They threatened to sue him too, until they said it was all a misunderstanding..I know one thing, Kris Jenner would sell her used tampax if she thought she could make a buck. She even disclosed how she pees her pants all the time to get an endorsement on adult diapers...this family is horrible and greedy. Kim and Kris Jenner went to Haiti..stayed in $1000 a nite hotel and had designer duds and make up artists etc and refused to even go into the poverty areas to meet the orphans..they had to come to them. They did not go on a humanitarian mission...they went for a photo op. And they were representing Americans?? They did nothing to help the Haitians...just looked their noses down at them as they did Kris Humpries family because they did not live in a mansion...this family is disgusting!!!!
