KIM K  TEEN PREGO CRISIS

KIM KARDASHIAN is blaming MTV's Teen Mom reality television show for the teen pregnancy epidemic plaguing a high school in Memphis, Tennessee.

RadarOnline.com reported that Kim Tweeted, calling the program "disturbing" and warned followers that teen pregnancy should not be considered "trendy".

"Does the show Teen Mom disturb anyone else?" she wrote. "Can't get this Memphis story out of my head. This should NOT be trendy!"

A teen prego crisis of epidemic proportions has plagued Frayser High School where ninety students are currently pregnant or have already had a baby this year, according to a report from WMC-TV 5 in Memphis.

Kim says the show that has turned Amber Portwood into a celebrity, encourages such behavior.

"I just couldn't believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing," Kim wrote.

"It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities...

"But girls, these are not people you should idolize!"
