Kim Kardashian has hit back after Jon Hamm trashed her in a recent interview by accusing her of making "stupidity" cool.

The Mad Men star voiced his dismay at the public's fascination with the brunette beauty and her famous family, calling the socialite a "f**king idiot".

He told Elle magazine: "We're at a place where the idea of being 'elite' is somehow considered a negative. Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly."

Kim has now taken to her Twitter page to respond to Jon's comments and to list the reasons why she is a success.

She tweeted: "I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview.

"I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life.

"We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates 'stupid' is in my opinion careless."
