Kim Kardashian held at gunpoint, tied up
Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint in her Paris luxury apartment in the early hours of the morning. Reuters reports that masked men put a gun to Kardashian’s temple, left her tied up in the bathroom of her luxury apartment in Paris and stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry.
The thieves were reportedly dressed like police officers and wearing ski masks. “The Paris apartment block is a discreet building behind the city’s Madeleine church, with several secret entrances, often frequented by movie and music stars who pay up to 15,000 euros a night,” reports Reuters.
Kardashian was in Paris with her mom and sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian attending fashion week. The thieves made away with $10 million dollars in jewelry. She was unharmed.
When husband Kanye West heard of the incident, he abruptly ended a show in NYC.

Most people can’t relate to traveling with $10M dollars in jewelry and may not have too much sympathy for losing that kind of thing. But it’s good to see that the overwhelming reaction to the incident is that no one deserves to go through something like this. She’s a mom. She’s a sister. She’s a daughter. She’s a wife. She’s a human being.
I’m glad Kim Kardashian is safe and also glad I’m not around people who would act so coldly towards anyone being robbed at gunpoint.

PSA: There’s a huge difference between disliking Kim Kardashian and reveling in a woman being bound and held at gunpoint.

Kim Kardashian or not, she’s human, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a mother and a friend, stop making this out to be nothing!

There’s nothing funny about the Kim Kardashian robbery. This is a wife and mother and who was held at gunpoint.

The Kim Kardashian story is terrifying. Remember, she’s somebody’s mom, sister and wife. She didn’t deserve that. Even if you dislike her.

A spokesperson for the family told CNN Kardashian is “badly shaken but physically unharmed.” Kardashian boarded a plane immediately after the incident and left France.
