Kardashian Empire Crumbling: Is This the End?

The Kardashian empire could be crumbling as new reports suggest that the brand is now completely tarnished.

Although they were once considered America’s most famous family, the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashian’ stars have officially been blacklisted, according to The New York Post.

Following 31-year-old Kim Kardashian’s 72 day marriage, the family’s credibility and overall appeal has been affected.

Kim, who filed for divorce shortly after her lavish nuptials to NBA star Kris Humphries, received widespread backlash with critics labeling the star-studded affair a publicity stunt.

Although she insisted that she married for love, some fans are not convinced and have reportedly lost interest, with many even turning to boycott groups to express their outrage.

While the Kardashians are often highly paid for public appearances, critics now insist that party promoters and elite business officials now refuse to work with them.

“Kim Kardashian would be crushing to us ...“I’d pay her $600,000 personally not to go to Red Egg,” Red Egg restaurant owner, Travis Bass said.

It was reported that Kim was once paid $600,000 for a New Years Eve appearance at TAO nightclub in Las Vegas, and critics like Bass say those days are over.

“I’m bored with them,” said Manhattan publicist R. Couri Hay, who organized paid Kardashian visits to clubs in 2008 and 2010.

Last month The Christian Post revealed that a number of Kardashian products are reportedly being produced in Chinese sweatshops.

“The Kardashians are in bed with some pretty bad people...Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers, they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women’s rights,” said executive director of the Institute for Global Labor and Human Rights Charles Kernaghan.

Many fans were horrified by the sweatshop reports, and “Boycott the Kardashian” groups say that they have since seen a spike in new members.

On Friday Kim received more criticism after it was revealed that her “Charity Auction Supporting the Dream Foundation” allegedly pockets 90 percent of its proceeds.

Critics blasted the socialite arguing that generous buyers felt “duped.”

According to Nielsen ratings the family's viewership has plummeted by 14 percent compared with last season.
