Harvard Online calls Kim Kardashian and Kanye West the 'intellectual equivalents of burgers and pizza'

That quote comes from this 2018 article in the prestigious Harvard Business Review:

Just like our evolved inclination to maximize caloric intake is no longer adaptive — but maladaptive — in a world of abundant and cheap fast food, our evolved predisposition to consume as much novel information as possible is no longer advantageous in the age of Facebook, Twitter, and clickbait news.
