Kim Kardashian stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she discussed the next step in her fight for criminal justice reform. "I think there's such a stigma on people hiring formerly incarcerated people," Kardashian told Fallon.
Kardashian has been seen as an influential advocate for prison reform ever since President Trump granted Alice Marie Johnson clemency last June, after Kardashian advocated on her behalf at the White House. During Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night, Johnson made an emotional cameo as Trump admitted that Johnson's story is an example of the "disparities and unfairness that can exist in criminal sentencing." Kardashian echoed those same sentiments when she told Fallon Thursday night, "There's so many people that are incarcerated for life. For murder, that maybe they were just next to someone, and there was a group of people, and a fight broke out and somebody unfortunately died. But they didn't even hit the person, didn't even have a weapon, and were serving life."
Kardashian then told Fallon that she believes these people, who are pardoned, deserve a second chance at life, and she has one idea of how she can help them once they get out. "I would love to hire formerly incarcerated people," Kardashian stated.
Kardashian, who is wildly successful in her business ventures, which include her KKW Beauty cosmetics line, Kimoji fragrances and mobile app, just to name a few, is a very savvy entrepreneur who can provide a lot of opportunity for the formerly incarcerated, and she hopes that other companies follow suit.
