While appearing virtually on the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Jones praised the SKIMS founder's work on prison reform.

When asked by DeGeneres how Kardashian's studies are progressing, Jones, said, "She's doing amazing."


Kardashian became an apprentice for Jones's Oakland-based nonpartisan organization #cut50, and appeared in his upcoming criminal reform documentary "The First Step," premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival and AFI in June.

"She has used her platform to help people behind bars. Her dad [Robert Kardashian] was a lawyer, and she always wanted to be a lawyer," Jones said of Kim Kardashian.

He continued, "And so she decided once she got a taste of what she could do using her platform, using her brain — she hasn’t let up."

Jones commended the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star for the work she's already done to help free inmates in prison for nonviolent offenses — notably Alice Marie Johnson, who former President TrumpDonald TrumpFormer New York state Senate candidate charged in riot Trump called acting attorney general almost daily to push election voter fraud claim: report GOP senator clashes with radio caller who wants identity of cop who shot Babbitt MORE formally pardoned in August.
