Jon Hamm gets Twitter feedback from 'idiot' Kim Kardashian

Jon Hamm's "Mad Men" character, Don Draper, isn't accustomed to women giving him any lip -- but this ain't the '60s and Kim Kardashian has something to say to her fellow celeb.

Hamm spoke out on cultural phenomena including Kardashian and her reality empire, specifically noting to Elle UK that, "'Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being ... [an] idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly." 

Kim isn't having it.

"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," Kardashian said in an extended post on Twitter.

"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," she wrote.

Burn. This isn't the first time a leading man has stepped out as a Kardashian detractor. Daniel Craig got vocal a few months ago with virtually the same sentiment.

"Look at the Kardashians ... you see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a ... idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?' " he said. 

But then again, we didn't have to tell you Kim doesn't have the best of luck with those leading men.
