But not everyone agrees that she is a lecturer and mentor. The star faced backlash over the weekend for her speech on social media Harvard Business School (HBS),

Kardashian visited HBS last Friday in Cambridge, Massachusetts with the co-founder SKIMSJens Grede, to talk to students for nearly two hours about the shapewear company as part of a direct-to-consumer symposium.

Although cameras followed him around campus, the symposium was not recorded.

Many took to Twitter to criticize Harvard’s decision to invite the 42-year-old to speak at the highly prestigious institution.

One user pointedly wrote, “I would hate to pay that tuition at Harvard $$$$ just to have her as a speaker.” “Do better, Harvard.”

User Holly Bennett wrote: “Kim Kardashian was born into wealth. She tried to use a sex tape to launch a career as an actress or singer, neither made a move. A scripted reality show for Kim K.” Was rich enough to run the show.” Because he and his family are shameless. Now Harvard is as mainstream as the Kardashians. ,

Another user commented: “Harvard Business School must be desperate for speakers. They sure are picking from the low fruit.”

Another wrote, “This is insane. Shame on Harvard.”

And another: “I hate paying that $$$$ Harvard tuition just to have a speaker. Do better, Harvard.”

And another: “Educate them for what? Use the word literally after every sentence.”

However, not all of the comments were anti-Kardashian. Many pointed to the success of his many ventures as the basis for his credibility.

One user said, “I don’t understand what the hate is for. Lots of people are jealous.” “The reality is she wasn’t born ultra-rich. She built a company, used her talents and built a brand.”

Kardashian’s Brand Skims doubled in value last year following a $240 million funding round led by hedge fund loan Pine Capital and investment firm D1 Capital Partners.

The company is currently valued at around $3.2 billion.

Although Kardashian has a fairly extensive business portfolio, most of her non-endorsement income comes from skims and a majority stake in her beauty line, KKW Beauty, to which she sold a 20% stake in 2020 for $200 million.

Kim Kardashian’s net worth has been estimated at $1.4 billion.
