Unsurprisingly, Kardashian's advice - shared in an interview with Variety - doesn't seem to have sparked inspiration in people on social media. Rather, many have pointed out the similarities in the two women's statements.
Oh dear god @KimKardashian .. we have another Molly mae here\u2026 It\u2019s very easy for the privileged rich elite to be giving advice without actually knowing real world struggles\u2026 why do people even ask them for it?https://twitter.com/variety/status/1501611270843166720\u00a0\u2026
People are accusing Kardashian of playing down the difficulty faced by women who want to start a business without financial backing or an established platform.
I wonder if @KimKardashian realizes that the PAs on her reality shows probably work around 70 hours a week busting their asses and still struggle to afford rent and necessities on that pay? But yeah she\u2019s right there\u2019s 168 hours in a week they should just work harder.https://twitter.com/variety/status/1501611270843166720\u00a0\u2026
Back in January, Hague added that she understood how “we all have different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations,” but said that she believes “if you want something enough you can achieve it.”
Both women's perspective on working hard is fair - work is stressful and working hard can generate success. However, both should probably be more aware that not all women have had the same breaks they have.
