Sick of the Kardashians? You certainly aren't the only one. In fact, a quick Google search of the very phrase "sick of the Kardashians" yields over one million search results. But what are the disgruntled, Kardashian-weary members of the population to do -- especially when it seems like the family is out for world domination? Introducing #KardBlock, an app designed to remove anything Kardashian-related from your online feed.

The app's description explains, ""We don’t care about who the Kardashians are or aren’t sleeping with. We don’t care that Kim dyed her hair blonde. We don’t care about the Kardashians." A little harsh, no?

By removing this Kardashian "Kontent," the #KardBlock app attempts to refocus attention on "real issues." Of course, just because you're Keeping up with the Kardashians, doesn't mean you don't care about the rest of the world -- but it is an interesting commentary on our priorities as a society.
