Kris Jenner says that when she claps back at online trolls, they end up asking her for a job

Given the frankly frightening devotion of internet trolls, we’re sure Kris Jenner has a lot to contend with in her online life. Anybody who has ever done anything at all publicly knows that the denizens of the worldwide web are only too eager to engage in a fight with a total stranger over absolutely nothing, so we can imagine doing things publicly on the level that the Jenner and Kardashian clan do would invite a whole new world of trolling. Luckily, Kris Jenner prepped her family for such a situation when they decided to take on the reality show biz, which she discussed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"We decided as a family to show everything, and no matter how many edits I saw I wouldn't take things out if they were embarrassing. With that philosophy and attitude, I told the kids just not to get on the internet. Now, it's so amplified to this level of 'Haters are going to hate' and you just expect the trolls on the internet to criticize every last thing you do. They've got really thick skin."

We think that’s definitely a healthy perspective to have, although we imagine it’s hard to maintain. On the upside, in her experience, Kris Jenner has found that people’s motivation for shouting into the Twitter void is often much more benign than it seems — most people are simply looking for attention.

"The couple of times I responded to trolls, by the end of the exchange they would ask me for a job or to be my assistant. It's wild that they just want your attention."

This also kind of emphasizes how many of the Kardashian haters secretly love the Kardashians.

We’re not going to start trolling but, like, Kris — are you hiring? Asking for a friend.
