Donald Trump fired Khloe Kardashian from the Celebrity Apprentice, which has confused and baffled those in the wine and spirits industry. While Mr. Trump tells Ms. Kardashian she would never have been on Celebrity Apprentice if he knew she had a DUI, last year, Mr. Trump introduced Trump Vodka to the World Wide Market. Businessman Martin Silver, owner of Georgi Vodka, New York’s largest selling vodka brand, questions Mr. Trump’s decision and feels it is unfair that the pop tart be persecuted by a man who profits from the liquor industry.
According to Mr. Silver, “Why would you terminate the young woman from the popular Apprentice show when you yourself sell vodka? It becomes a double edge sword and hypocrytical on Mr. Trump’s part.”
“While we don’t advocate drinking irresponsibly, I feel it is unjust to fire Kardashian on these grounds,” continues Mr. Silver. “Everyone makes mistakes. If you sell spirits, why would you fire somebody who could have been a customer of Trump Vodka the night she was pulled over?”
Georgie Vodka, of which advertisements appear on the back of New York City buses, is willing to offer Ms. Kardashian a position at the company in light of her being fired by another liquor producer.
“We are outraged by the conduct of Mr. Trump’s of Ms. Kardashian and would love for her to be one of our own apprentices in the future,” says Silver.
