The comment has been the root of many jokes since then.

Kim Kardashian is clarifying her controversial advice for women in business.

The 41-year-old SKIMS founder advised women to "get your f--king ass up and work" in a Variety profile earlier this month. The remark was met with heavy criticism on social media, even becoming a joke at the 94th annual Academy Awards.

Kardashian addressed the comment in a sit-down interview with Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America," which will be included in an ABC primetime special on the Kardashian-Jenner family airing on April 6.

Kardashian said,

"Well, that statement that I said was without questions and conversation around it. It became a sound bite, really, with no context. And that sound bite I came off the notion and the question right before, which was after 20 years of being in the business, you're famous for being famous. And my whole tone and attitude changed with the previous question that went into that question about what advice would you give to women."

Kardashian then shared the true advice she meant to give, saying:

"The advice that I would give is just that having a social media presence and being on a reality show does not mean overnight success," she said. "And you have to really work hard to get there, even if it might seem like it's easy and that you can build a really successful business off of social media. And you can, if you put in a lot of really hard work."

The new hour-long ABC special will feature interviews with Kim, as well as her sisters Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and mother, Kris Jenner. It airs on April 6 at 8 p.m. ET.
