We love the Kardashians, but even as unabashed fans, we’re also completely aware that not everyone shares our affection for the reality stars. However, this is the first time we’ve ever heard of something with a legit phobia over Kim Kardashian.
According to the Daily Mail, 24-year-old Mike Amess has such a strong aversion to Kim and her family, the sight or sound of them makes him break out into cold sweats, while a nude or partially nude Kim photo or video will make him “vomit in disgust.”
As it turns out, the origin of Mike’s phobia seems to stem from viewing Kim Kardashian’s sex tape in a failed effort to make himself straight. “'I was raised Catholic and growing up, I tried to repress my sexuality and deny that I was gay,” he explains.
However, watching the tape not only failed to turn him on — it actually brought on strong feelings of revulsion. “By the end of the tape, I had burst into tears,” Mike claims. “The experience left me terrified and I never wanted to see Kim's face again.”
Most recently, Mike experienced a strong negative reaction to Kanye West’s “Bound 2” video, which features a nude Kim suggestively riding a motorcycle while facing her rapper fiancé. “Before I knew it, I was sweating like a pig and throwing up,” he says of the sight of Kim’s bouncing breasts. Now even hearing the Yeezy hit will trigger his gag reflex.
Though Mike’s desire to scare himself straight has gone away, his negative associations with Kim and her family haven’t subsided. Kim may be regarded as one of the most beautiful people on earth, but the poor traumatized man can’t understand why anyone on earth could find anyone in her family attractive. And, since they’re so ubiquitous, he says he’s confronted almost daily with his phobia.
“It makes life really difficult. Sometimes, I miss out on a lot of important news or celebrity gossip because I have to avoid anything which features the Kardashians.”
Can you believe anyone hates the Kardashians this much?
