Megyn Kelly has branded the Kardashians as "a force for evil" for displaying "unrivaled vanity" on social media.

In the Friday (September 30) episode of The Megyn Kelly Show podcast, the 51-year-old said that the reality stars' use of the internet has resulted in a societal "focus on one’s self" and "ego" in the pursuit of "clicks" and "likes".

"They didn't do it by themselves," Kelly said on her podcast. "But more than any other, they've had a terrible effect in that lane. And I do blame them. I do."

Kelly then recalled in her podcast the time she interviewed the Kardashians in 2017 when she was hosting Megyn Kelly Today and she asked "force for good" or "force for evil". However, she said that as she continued to watch them, the more she believed it was "evil."

Watch a clip from Kelly's podcast below:

The former Fox News host joined the Peacock Network that year and had the Kardashian family on as guests to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their E! reality hit series: Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2017.

The TV series allowed the prominent celebrity family to rise to stardom using their online presence to build their multibillion-dollar businesses that included various things such as fashion, cosmetics, and accessories.

"I don't think this is healthy, and that's why I object to - it's their disgusting vanity which is spread like wildfire in our society. The selfie culture is abhorrent to me," Kelly continued.

In the NBC segment from 2017, Kelly spoke with the family, including the mom Kris Jenner and her daughters, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner.

When she asked the "good" or "evil" question, the 41-year-old SKIMS founder said at that time: "I think we've honestly through our show -  we've shown so much more positive things."

"The amount of feedback we get even from Kendall and Kylie’s dad transitioning and people now knowing how to handle that or how to deal with that. They only want to focus on ‘Oh they’re superficial, oh they’re wearing makeup,'" she added.

The 66-year-old "momager" of the family chimed in and noted that the 25-year-old Kylie Cosmetics founder was a makeup mogul at 19 years old, employing 600 people.

"My little sister has an insane business," the 26-year-old model continued. "Anyone who says they don’t want their kid to be like that and have an insane business at 19 and be successful is insane to me."

Mostly, Khloé wanted critics to know they have problems, too, saying: "None of us are perfect. I grew up with sisters that everybody else was comparing me to."

"I had such an amazing core base that I never felt less than. And if anyone is comparing them to anybody else, that’s your responsibility at home to teach them what core values are and to be a good person from within," she added.

To conclude, the famous family denied using their social media platform or stardom to advertise impossible beauty standards for women and young girls.
