In 2016, Fabio — yes, THAT Fabio, the one who’s blessed the covers of many a romance novel — expressed his dislike for Kardashian in a very succinct, clear way. “Kim Kardashian is trash,” he told NY Daily News. Full stop.
Fabio, who had just become an American citizen, went on to explain that he felt the Kardashian family set a bad precedent for people, notably “the younger generation.” “There are a lot of people out there … who think that the only thing they have to do to become famous is make a [adult] video or be caught doing something nasty,” he said, undoubtedly referencing Kardashian’s infamous sex tape.
The model went on to reference how he was not a fan of the way the Kardashians have exploited the moments and people in their lives for television. “All the Kardashians care about is the media, money and being on camera,” he said. “It shows they have no sensitivity and they don’t know when to stop.”
