Kardashian Fam

Prepping to SUE Over

Bogus Slave Labor Report

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

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.

Haven't they been using blacks to get a head anyway (Brandy, RAyJ, Reggie, Kris). They already use a form of slavery.


Atleast Kris got some gigs out of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If it was not for stupid black men Kim would still be paris slave/flunky!!!!!!!!

I think that Kris' ex-husband is lying in his grave with a little woodie sticking up from his rotting flesh right now. He must be so proud of his matriarch whore!!! This old slut will do anything to make money. Dirty nasty whore!!! When is Sears going to realize that America Hates this family.

Yes they are concerned about their brand. Most brand names are know for one thing or another IE Hilton hotels, Mars candy, DuPont , Johnson & Johnson , Ford, and the list goes on and on. The Kardashian, brand will forever be known as the family that parlayed a BJ to a $65,000,000 payday and nothing else. I guess they could get in the Genis book of world records then again maybe not, many ball players have paid a lot more for a BJ.

I don't understant why they are suing. Either way, the kardashians are not the only ones who manufactor in China, cheap fast labor is what most corporations in America want. We need to keep jobs in America, and by keeping jobs in America we need buy from companies who manufactor here at home. It is no surprise these people are part o*****roup who send jobs else where. In the end wheter it is a sweatshop or not, its a human who get pennies for a days work. And I am glad this is out, and maybe ppl who do buy their product, will reconsider next time. Greedy family.

If you buy ANY of the Kardouchians crappy products, you are as guilty as them for supporting slave labor. Not to mention that you have very poor fashion tastes. If you watch ANY of their shows, well then you are an idiot!
