Kim Kardashian is the latest to speak out about the ongoing college admissions and cheating scandal. The scandal — which actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman became engulfed in — outlines how parents used their wealth and influence to get their students into prestigious schools.
The scandal included parents presenting their children as fake recruits for sports they have never even played.
Kardashian has since weighed in during an appearance on the Van Jones Show.
According to Kardashian, she would never attempt to use her power or influence to get her children into a university that they were not qualified for.
“If they couldn’t get into a school, I would never want to use privilege to try to force them into a situation that they wouldn’t thrive in anyway,” Kardashian said. “So that’s where I just see that that is not appropriate. It’s just when you have so much [that’s] accessible, so many things that are just presented to you. I want my kids to be kind, I want them to be as grounded as possible, and to buy your way into something just wouldn’t benefit anybody.”
The interview was done as part of Vogue’s cover story for May.
The news comes at a time when Kardashian has been more politically active and vocal about reform of the justice system. Kardashian has met with president Donald Trump in the past and was a driving force in the release of Alice Marie Johnson.
“The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency,” Kardashian said. “I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more.
“I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role. But I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”
