As if you didn’t have enough to be angry about, I just ran across this article! NPR is cultural capital, associated with education and upper-middle-class liberals. Kim Kardashian is associated with the lowest pop culture and a lack of taste. Clearly these responses are about class. It’s just particularly hypocritical given that many NPR listeners would self-identify as “open-minded” and educated. Come on, really, guys? “My first impulse was to question the meaning of life”? Clearly that’s hyperbole, but still! Being classist is not funny!
