Lorraine Kelly swipes at Kim Kardashian as she apologies over controversial comments

Lorraine Kelly didn't hold back on Tuesday as she made a swipe at Kim Kardashian, following the reality star's recent apology.

TV star Lorraine, 62, took a swipe at 41 year old Kim as she discussed her recent apology on her eponymous show.

Lorraine dismissed Kim's apology as she discussed the video of Kim clarifying what she meant in her comments about women in business, with her Hollywood correspondent Ross King.

Kim recently clarified her comments about women in business in an ABC News' Good Morning America interview overnight.

Reality star Kim recently ruffled a few feathers in a recent Variety video interview with her family. She said: "I have the best advice for women in business. Get your f**king a*s up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days."

Now, Kim addressed the controversy and she said: "Well that statement that I said was without questions and conversations around it and it became a soundbite with no context.

"And that soundbite, I came off of the notion – and the question right before, which was 'after 20 years of being in the business you're famous for being famous' and I, my whole tone and attitude changed with the previous question that went into that question about what advice would you give to women.

"The advice I would give is having a social media presence and being on a reality show does not mean overnight success and you have to really work hard to get there – even if it might seem like it's easy and you can build a really successful business off of social media and you can if you put in a lot of hard work.

"It wasn't a blanket statement towards women to make them feel like I don't respect the work or think they work hard. I know they do, that was taken out of context but I'm really sorry if it was received that way."

Once the video of Kim's newest interview aired, Lorraine made her opinion clear as she simply said: "Whatever" before moving on.

And it appears Lorraine isn't the only one not buying the apology as one fan tweeted: ""I’m really sorry if it was received that way." This. Is. Not. An. Apology."

Another added: "Kim Kardashian's classic non-apology 'apology'."

While a third said: "Don't worry there will be another story of Kim Kardashian and Pete going to the grocery store or getting another tattoo soon to try and distract from how trash apology."
