Pictured addressing the audience of 1,400 Tuesday night During her appearance, Kardashian called for tighter gun controls. Discussing the issue for the first time, she said: 'I'm not the type to have them in my house. They scare me so much. 'This is someone who built her entire career on the objectification of women. Seriously? I mean what has she done besides succeeded in making herself famous,' he said. 'That's not what the Commonwealth Club is about. It's about elevating the conversation, not degrading it,' he added. The dispute is reminiscent of the flak National Public Radio received earlier this month after Kardashian appeared on its 'Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!' quiz show. NPR received hundreds of complaints and some listeners threatened to stop donating to the non-profit broadcaster. Kardashian's personal representative, Ina Treciokas, declined to comment on why the reality star might be trying to reach new audiences or what she hopes to accomplish with the NPR and Commonwealth Club appearances.
