Jaded jurors in Kardashian case express disdain for stars’ lifestyles

Talking trash about the Kardashians is a common pastime for many ordinary Americans. On Monday, a few got to do it to their faces.

Kim Kardashian, her mother Kris Jenner and her sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner all sat in the front row of a Los Angeles courtroom as prospective jurors aired their feelings about the famous family and the four women, all defendants in a lawsuit brought by Rob Kardashian’s former fiancee Blac Chyna.

“Anything that has to do with their names is just a big no for me,” one man said. “I don’t think reality TV is good for society.”

Chyna, whose legal name is Angela White, is suing the Kardashians, alleging they destroyed her television career, and during jury selection her attorney Lynne Ciani asked 47 candidates their feelings about the plaintiff and defendants, and the reality shows the case stems from.

Another said, “I sincerely hope none of these people get any wealthier because of this.”

One woman said her teenage daughter tried to watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians when it first came on, but she put a stop to it.

“I don’t think they were the best role models,” she said. “I wouldn’t let her watch anything involving them.”

One panel member couldn’t even wait to be asked. Told to give his name, occupation, marital status and hometown shortly after sitting down, he replied then added, “and I just want to say I have a very negative perception of the parties and I’m not sure I could be unbiased”.
