Kim Kardashian Gets Trolled Online After Being Robbed at Gunpoint; Chrissy Teigen Jumps to Her Defense

We get it, a lot of people don’t like Kim Kardashian. They don’t get what she’s famous for, or why she’s famous, they don’t understand what it is her job is. It’s been the same story since 2007. Nine years later, she’s still here. Hating on her because she’s famous and we don’t understand it has honestly gotten kind of boring.

Yesterday, she was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room. She was tied up, gagged, and she had $10 million worth of jewelry stolen from her. Upon hearing the news her husband Kanye West walked offstage while performing the song “Heartless” at a concert in New York. This sounds like a story where everyone would be on the same page and feel sympathy for Kardashian as a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and person. but this is 2016 and it’s the Internet, so nope.

People made jokes and memes about the robbery. One Twitter user said he was “surprised” the whole incident wasn’t captured on Snapchat. Others called it a publicity stunt, as though she needs to fake an armed robbery for publicity. 

James Corden defended her.

Piers Morgan, who pretty much never has anything nice to say about Kardashian also expressed his concern, which people then called “hypocritical.”

Leave it to Chrissy Teigen, though, to shut down the haters like a boss.

Some Twitter users seem to think that because Kardashian is rich, she deserves to be robbed at gunpoint.

Boom.
