But it’s unlikely that IMDB has adopted a new, harsh attitude to the celebs and movie stars it profiles. More likely the site has been hacked.

At the moment, the site’s entry for Kardashian, who today announced her far more talented boyfriend Kanye West will appear on her reality TV show, reads:

“Kim Kardashian is emblematic of the shallowness of American culture in the first two decades of the new millennium.

“While some cultural critics call her the prime avatar of the ‘famous for being famous’ faux celebrity crowd, she along with Paris Hilton is a new breed of cat whose celebrity comes from the release of a sex tape and the canny exploitation of the resulting publicity.

“Like her good friend Miss Hilton (their relationship predates Kim’s ‘celebrity’, Kardashian is possessed of photogenic good looks but is short of any other discernible talents outside of the bedroom.

“Both expanded their celebrity by becoming reality TV ‘stars’.

“That the women’s fame rests on the February 2007 “leaking” of a four-year-old home sex tape (for which she ultimately received $5 million from Vivid Entertainment) is an apt metaphor for socio-economic-cultural malaise in Washington and the country beyond, where everything seems to be run by amoral prostitutes in bed with each other and merely out for a buck.”

IMDB is not the first to offer criticism of Kardashian.

James Bond star Daniel Craig recently launched an expletive-ridden attack on her in GQ Magazine.

“You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?” Craig said.

And Jon Hamm, the star of popular TV show mad Men, recently told Elle magazine: “Being a f***ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture. You’re rewarded significantly.”
