Kim Kardashian, star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, was bound and gagged at gunpoint early Monday morning during an armed robbery in which five masked men stole an estimated $10 million in jewelry.
Kardashian is understandably "badly shaken" after the incident, which took place at her Paris hotel. But rather than express empathy for Kardashian, many used the traumatizing experience as an excuse to mock and deride the reality star, with some even blaming her for getting robbed since she had so many valuables with her.
Although Kardashian has yet to acknowledge the incident on her own social media accounts, the business mogul's peers have taken to Twitter in an effort to shut down the cruel trolls.
Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you'd make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016
I dunno. It's hard to explain because everyone thinks money and fame is pure awesome, so it just sounds whiny. I get it, trust me. Go off.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016
I'm furious Paris police didn't have police protection for Kim especially after that scum assaulted her earlier in the week— Spencer Pratt (@spencerpratt) October 3, 2016
People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she's a mother,a daughter,a wife,a friend.Be nice or shut up— James Corden (@JKCorden) October 3, 2016
