Kim Kardashian Defends Popular Mobile Game

Kim Kardashian appeared on NBC's morning program The Today Show  to defend her ultra popular mobile title Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Last week New York Times best-selling author Ayelet Waldman took to Twitter to lambaste Kardashian, blaming her for her son spending $120 in the game for virtual goods. Waldman called her an "evil scumbag."

But Kardashian defended her game to host Matt Lauer, by saying that parents need to make sure that they have parental controls set up.

"You just have to make sure that your parental controls are all set," Kardashian told Matt Lauer on Monday's "Today Show" regarding reports of unauthorized spending by children on in-app purchases.  I think you just have to be responsible, and don’t have your credit card linked to where your kid can just spend if they want to, or ask permission."

Kardashian also told Lauer that Glu Mobile has been "very pleased with their numbers." Within its first week of release, Bloomberg News reported Kardashian's first iOS game was already on track to earn over $200 million. Kardashian will rake in over $85 million from the app this year.
