When someone becomes despite (or because of) a lack of skill, talent or ability. Usually the result of a sex tape or an Instagram account filled with selfies. Named for Kim Kardashian, who was by no means the first person to achieve fame this way, but certainly one of the most infamous.
Starla was hoping to undergo the Kardashian Effect by posting 400 selfies per day.

It's when someone complains about how hard they have it, not to get OR take the help offered, but just simply because they want to get attention and create drama to show how hard they think they think they have it.

Especially useful on social media
Example: I’m stuck on the freeway car broken down, no one for miles, kids screaming in the back seat, my eldest has a disability and doesn’t understand and I have no mobile service but it dropped in enough to post this 😰

Response: Help offered by multiple people all turned down with the β€˜ill solider on’, it’ll be ok’ or β€˜this is my life I’m used to it’. And yet they can keep responding to said posts/texts. Oh, your suffering from the kardashian effect!
