Criticizes Kardashians

Interview0 Comments

In an interview with HuffPost Live, Gunn talks about the Kardashians and Kanye West. On West’s clothing line:

I think they’re a bunch of dumb clothes. Just basic pieces…He won’t [like that comment], but let me tell you, the whole Kardashian clan doesn’t like me, so no surprise there…There are large issues [with the Kardashians] for me, such as why? Why! But when it comes to fashion I say to people all the time, if you want guidance in fashion, just consider this: if a Kardashian is wearing it, don’t… I think it’s vulgar… Given the amount of public exposure that the Kardashians have to potentially be sending the message to people that you too can dress like this, no!

On Kendall Jenner:

I think absolutely nothing [of her] to be perfectly honest. And I’m assuming there’s a huge, perhaps million dollars a month, publicity wagon that is pulling these girls along and creating these lives for them. I’m distrustful of it and I find it all distasteful. [But] I shouldn’t say that she doesn’t [have ‘it’]. I don’t know her — she may be a perfectly lovely young woman. I just feel that she’s tainted by the Kardashian aura of yuck!
