Kim Kardashian Robbed At Gunpoint In Paris Home Invasion

Kim Kardashian was tied up at gunpoint and robbed by several men posing as police in Paris on Sunday. As you can imagine, the internrt is having a field day mocking her over having millions of dollars of jewelry stolen and saying she deserved it, which is bullshit victim blaming.

It's Ridiculous That People Are Saying Kim Kardashian Deserved To Be Held at Gunpoint | Glamour

As I wrote in another thread;
Quote:
It's hard to believe they didn't set this whole thing up. I'm certain this is something that could happen, but they've both purposely done so many things to get attention ($) I just don't give a f. She isn't dead or hurt, so that's all I need to know, if even that. Because of the many terrorist violence in France, the number of tourists have dropped, and the mayor of Paris had to actually comment on this so as to reassure potential visitors.
I hope she's fine, but I don't especially care about the particulars.

I'm not a fan, but I feel very bad for her. I'm sure that was terrifying. I can't imagine being tied up like that when you're in a place you considered to be safe. PTSD is a real thing, and I hope that she gets a lot of support and emotional help, if she needs it. It's easy to shrug off her experience because of who she is, but that doesn't make her invulnerable to violence, fear and trauma. Poor girl.

I suppose, as far as the NRA is concerned, anyone claiming to be a police officer should be held at gunpoint till they can prove it too.

The NRA's stance is partly built on the fantasy of a Real Man with his God-smelted handguns standing up to real armed government goons. It goes without saying they believe they'd have been able to take on bad guys merely disguised as cops with no trouble.

Heck, they continued to push to the claim that a 2-A-type gun right in France would've thwarted the Charlie Hebdo assault even after their own, repeated, simulations gave a zero percent survival rate.

I'm not a fan of anything remotely connected to the Kardashian/Jenner empire.
I think it's scary and terrible that this crime happened to anyone but I also don't like any of the media hoopla (regardless of the slant) that is happening largely just because of who she is.

I don't know if it's completely that. The theft of a few million dollars worth of jewelry tends to at least make the news, regardless. I mean, of course it makes a difference that she's famous. But I would bet that, with the internet, this would have made news no matter who it happened to.

However, if she wouldn't have been Kim Kardashian, it more than likely wouldn't have happened at all, anyway. So there is THAT, also, to factor in with the press coverage.

If Brad Pitt yelling at, and possibly pushing, his oldest child can be front page news for days, I'm pretty sure that Kim Kardashian being traumatized and robbed of millions is worth a few stories.

Yeah, it is news. But in the context of all the other media hype surrounding them it's a bit numbing, at least to me. Media articles scolding people for behaving badly when the press in general humps this family so hard just seems a bit ironic though...

I've had a very bad taste for this kind of overdone celeb-worship since the Cosmo 'first family' cover. It's just too much. </>

I feel a twinge of guilt for thinking it's a setup, some kind of way to get insurance money and more clicks, since she and Kanye are not in the best financial waters right now. It's just a twinge, a reservation, because these people are shameless in exploiting themselves.

Mostly I heard people saying she/Kardashian Inc made the whole thing up for publicity, yada, yada, but even they know lying to the police is a crime. I'm surprised at the lack of security, only one bodyguard? The other said something about an inside job which would be alarming for that family, obviously.

I think the lack of sympathy also comes from the value of the jewelry stolen being reported because it reminds everyone of how much this worthless bunch has and people get disgusted all over again.

Kim is a tough cookie though, her monster, I mean mother, made sure of that much.

Definitely not. No way can a private security guard carry a firearm in France.

What I don't understand is why she was carrying $10 million worth of jewellery and no bodyguard looking over it all times. I'm pretty sure that insurance policies have all sorts of safety requirements for travelling with that kind of value. It is definitely fishy.

Well she had one bodyguard, they took him out first. The question is why wasn't all that shit in the hotel safe, I didn't think people with that kind of bling just carried it around like their damn make-up bag. Ridiculous.

In fact, that may be why the other bodyguard suggested an inside job because who would know she was dumb enough to keep 10 million worth of jewelry in her hotel room? Everyone would assume it was mostly in the hotel safe. But they knew better.... hmmmm....

As for that glamour article, bitch please. If I ever have to read another mental deficient write about her brilliant business mind I might off myself. Built on a sex tape and whoring herself out to a public with no taste or decency, lots of plastic surgery and a mobile game that if you believe she thought up I truly pity you. Besides, her mother is the evil brain behind this enterprise, always was.

I've seen it all over the news in France, and the global victim blaming from some "journalists" is sickening. I don't care who the victim is and what social networks think of her, she stays the victim. And I don't care that she was wearing millions in jewelry without securing it in a safe (what good is jewelry for if you can't wear it anyway ?), nor that she had only one bodyguard, etc etc. She's the victim and that's it.

Also the group of bandits who robbed her seemed to be very well organized, and had prepared their attack for a while. They knew when, where, who and how to strike. Dressed and armed like policemen, they had to use very little violence to get what they wanted (which makes me think that using a safe in these circumstances would not have helped anyway). Granted, it is easy to know where the victim is at all times, as well as what she is wearing at any time, just read her Facebook page, but still. Lots of organization there, they were obviously professionals.

All this to say, as it has been pointed out in this thread, it could to anybody rich enough, regardless of the fame, and regardless of how secure the goods are. It has nothing to do with how careful or careless the victim is. Also I'm glad that she's unscathed. Probably because professionals.

I never said she wasn't a victim, I said she was stupid to keep that shit in her hotel room. But then again I read she did even more, she posts on her Instagram pics and videos of her jewelry, bragging about exactly how much each piece is worth in dollar amounts. In fact a poster made a joke about her getting robbed the day before this happened while she was doing this. She was probably in the hotel room while she did it.

None of this means she deserved to be terrorized but if they stole it while she was out if the hotel, most people would point out the stupidity of her actions and say she had it coming. No one is going to cry over her losing jewelry. She was a victim of a violent crime. She has my sympathy for that. No one "deserves" to be violated, even if they are stupid.

I'm glad no one was seriously hurt. other than that IDGAF...

... actually that's not entirely true, I get the reaction towards them. they're entirely fake people who put on airs of being superior on the basis of little more than the warm wind wafting from their mouths, or asses... it's hard to tell. and it feels justified to laugh at their misfortune, the same way they (with judicious help from the media) throw their fortune in everyone's face and pretend it makes them better. that's the thing about self made pedestals, you build it up high enough, and eventually someone will come by and knock it down.

I'm really glad to see the tone of most of the posts here. I too am far from a fan, but my heart went out to her as a fellow survivor. Here's my article on the topic:
https://themighty.com/2016/10/letter...sion-survivor/

I don't think it would have really mattered if she had put the jewelry in the safe in her room. If someone's holding you at gunpoint, you should give them anything they want to take. Nothing is more important than your life! I can't imagine having millions of dollars worth of jewelry, but I don't think I would trust that to the hotel safe either.

I think survivors of physical violence tend to blame ourselves just as survivors of sexual violence do. In the aftermath, it's inevitable to think about all the what ifs, and how if you had just done this one thing differently it wouldn't have happened. But even if you made mistakes, even if you own expensive items or trusted the wrong person, there's no excuse for people to take advantage of that, especially in such a violent manner. Nobody is perfect but that doesn't mean we deserve to be victimized.
