The petition organizer says E!'s reality shows featuring Kim Kardashian and her family 'are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity' and 'conspicuous consumption.'

Kardashian haters have launched an online petition to remove the clan from television. As of press time, more than 11,000 people have signed the petition at GoPetition.com to ask E! to take the family's reality series off the air. " 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' is just not viewing that we the public, would like to see from your network. Enough is enough," so reads the petition addressed to E!.

"In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming," says petition organizer Cyndy Snider. She reasons, "We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption."

Snider adds, "While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of 'reality satire,' it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them. I'll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a 'leaked' sex tape."

The Kardashians' TV shows are not the only things targeted by haters. Some people also protest that Kim Kardashian is cast in Tyler Perry's next movie "The Marriage Counselor" despite her marriage that only lasted 72 days.

"Dump Kim Kardashian from your movie. Cut her part out. Your movie will bomb if you release it with her in it. Her 15 minutes of fame are long over. She will be an actress only in her mind," so reads a comment posted on the Talk section of Perry's website.

Another protester writes, "I really am disappointed in your decision to keep Kim K. in your movie. She is a disgrace to herself and her family. She is a role model and she has disappointed her fans. Let her go. I guarantee she will bring your ratings down. Dump her."

E! has not responded to the online petition addressed to them. The network has been promoting the second season of "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" which will debut later this November.

I try not to take things to seriously, if I want serious I watch the news. I enjoy the show and don't give it much thought. It's entertaining.

I Actually know a couple of young girls who have modelled their whole lives based on what the Kardashians do. And they have no concept of how the 'Kardashian' image is vain, empty and disgusting. Its really sad.

Why does the family even have fans??? I mean what are these fans thinking in their minds?? How could they actually support these people, because they so pretty omg??? True, but they're beautiful because of their fake hair extensions, etcetera.... but do fans have any idea how impliedly selfish they are, they make soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much money....they aren't real friends.....they don't care and aren't considerate of others, and their struggles with making ends meet

I'm not looking forward to the the days where the KKKKK sister's model their fat asses on the weather channel, cbs, nbc, cnn, fox, nickelodeon, mtv, animal planet, nat geo, and all other mass media t.v channels, I mean these Klu Klux Klan offsprings are EVERYWHERE, their sugarcoated orange airbrushed faces need to go away and move to their own exclusive Kardashian empire planet

Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe are the modern Klu Klux Klan, they haven't killed anyone but they have caused so much hatred, distress, anxiety, and hurt so many people, they are slowly damaging and killing us with their unrealistic multimillionaire lifestyles

All this family does it eat on the show, Kris is overweight, and Kim is overweight, their friendship characteristics are fake! they aren't friends! they are whores, kendall and kylie live in a whore mansion where their mom manages them by working as whores to make money!

I hate this family, they are all fake and act like they are best friends with everyone, they have no lives, all they do is take pictures of themselves 12 hours and day and post their sugarcoated fake smiles on twitter, tumblr, youtube, google, everywhere!

I don't wish them harm but Kim is a nasty person on this show we have seen her lie to her half sisters, yell at people in her home. Say crude things to her sister scream at her best friend and in a matter of weeks ask her husband to have a baby and then want out of her marriage. Her mother is not much better that scene in the car was so staged like we can't tell when you go back and reshot so it looks like you were really looking of advice. We are not stupid I do hope people stop watching I don't understand why we are putting money in their pockets for being nasty human begings. your 15 mins is over PLEASE

The Kardishian mother and her daughters are vulgar white trash and their crude ways need to be eliminated from TV/Magazines, etc.

While the Kardashians are a waste of air time, E! will continue to show them because they make money. A petition isn't going to stop anything. But yes, they are dumb and should probably go play in traffic.

finally... it took 4 long years for some people to realize they're annoying. i mean i have to admit, the first time i saw it, i was a tad entertained, but they've been doing the same shit for a very long time, and its sad that american people (especially the young ones) watch these shows. i hope she's out of tv world. and i pray her and her whole family goes bankrupt!!!

People, you are missing the point. These people petitioning are just over the Kardashians, period. And the whole point of it is to go to the root of the problem, which is the E! network. It's not just their tv shows that make people angry, it's the fact that they make MILLIONS of having no talent. They made over 65 MILLION just last year, not even A List actors made that, that should be a sign that there is something wrong. People are just over their fame hungry, greedy ways. They don't contribute anything to society other then selfishness.

Kardashians are mental. They need psychiatric help big time! Better yet make them poor so they know what life is really all about
posted by Jay on Nov 16, 2011
Last time I checked it is a free country, it is up to the people to decide if they want to watch the show, rather than foster your anger towards E, why don't you get your 11,000 signers to simply not watch the show. There are lots of shows on TV that deserves to be boycotted but that is a decision on you as the viewer to simply change the channel.

While it is true these people have done nothing to deserve fame or fortune (other than things that would bring most shame and poverty) The real issue is the Media and entertainment outlets that bombards us with this garbage. We also share the blame because we support watch and buy into this stuff. Stop watching the news and shows that talks about them//Watch creative entertainment and real independent NEWS (Not Fox, CNN or BBC etc.) We are so watered down that we promote simple as great, and wealth of character as success and we reward bad behavior and waste and opportunist over true art and substance. The history channel now shows truckers and fishermen, and guys who want to pretend their knights”. We have the a real house wife show for every city, army wives pawn brokers tow truck reality shows this is all sad!!! There is no such thing as reality with a camera on you and you are getting paid “we all have some soul searching to do.

If you want to show Positive role models E should be showing more of Kendra and Hank. I just watched there show for the first time over the weekend. They are a very positive family from Hank's father who has cancer but yet he makes everyday a Positive day and the way Hank speaks of his father and Kendra she's real and to watch them they are very positive people. The Kardashian's are very TRASHY AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CLASS. I hope E cuts The Kardashians off and I hope that Tyler Perry takes his fans advice to cut her loose or wait maybe she'll quit that project just like she quit her Marriage!!!

I totally hate that the author chose the words Haters in the title of this article. I for one believe that they do not belong on TV or in society as stars or mentors. First, beside Bruce Jenner, none of them have achieved anything. They are not educated and they are simply annoying to hear and watch because of the profanity, sex talk, and trashy conversations they have. Just because you have a show DOES NOT entitle you to be annoying!

Yes, I would agree that the Kardashians are the ultimate white trash, with nothing positive to contribute to society, only to bring down our morality to the gutter.
