Kim Kardashian And Her Sisters’ Reality TV Celeb Culture Being Blamed For Natalie Harvey ‘Britain’s Worst Mum’ Story!

Kim Kardashian And Her Sisters' Reality TV Celeb Culture Being Blamed For Natalie Harvey 'Britain's Worst Mum' Story!

The Kardashians have changed the very face of pop culture. Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and Bruce Jenner forced us to re-evaluate how we view celebrities in general. Their reality television show, and its subsequent spin-offs, broke free from the trashy reality television shackles, injected itself into the entertainment industry, and revolutionized the celebrity tabloid genre.

Reality television turned into reality for a 19-year-old teenager in the UK. Natalie Harvey has over 26 convictions against her name. Most of these convictions occurred during her teenage years, but the recent conviction sent a pregnant Harvey to prison for 12 months after an unprovoked attack on a woman in a McDonald’s restaurant.

A story such as this appears on the 6th or 7th page of a faded newspaper. There is usually no conclusion or absolution, but Harvey’s tale is a bit more unorthodox than the rest. Tim Berrand, Harvey’s barrister, blamed pop culture and the Kardashians for his client’s “situation.” The 19-year-old was approached by an entertainment magazine about a possible interview, to which Berrand responded: “It may be [a] reflection of the Kardashian culture that we perhaps live in that a sad story of a girl from Burnley should make its way to the national press as it did.”

She has been painted as a “victim” of celebrity culture. If this is true, then anyone with an internet connection should be a “victim” of celebrity culture. The Kardashian image might be the antithesis of morality, but the Kardashians aren’t villainous trash-people with nuclear weapons in their shoes. They’re simply famous.

The very definition of celebrity is “the state of being well-known.” Whether it be infamy or fame, everyone wants a tiny spotlight to shine on their existence for 15 seconds. Our inherent need to be recognized gave birth to the reality television sub-culture and spawned Justin Bieber, the Kardashians, and Katy Perry.

Thanks humanity. Really. You shouldn’t have.
