Kim Kardashian robbed at gunpoint: What's so funny?

Brian LilleyArchive

It's the biggest celebrity story of the day: Super wealthy reality TV star Kim Kardashian was reportedly robbed at gun point by men posing as police officers. When her husband, musician Kanye West, learned of the crime, he cut short a performance to be at her side.

My question is:

What's so funny?

I see lots of people making fun of the couple on social media, and enjoying a little schadenfreude.

But it doesn't matter who it happens to: Armed robbery shouldn't be an opportunity for mockery.

Can't we show a little humanity and sympathize with crime victims, no matter who they are?

LMAO, she doesn’t realize that most people don’t care that she got robbed, at least they don’t care anymore than they would for any non celebrity strictly as a victim. But it’s not news that she was robbed.

…and yes, who knows, the whole thing could be staged. I certainly would not be surprised if it were a stunt. We will probably never know. It is hard to feel a lot of compassion in this instance.

One of the problems with making yourself so well known. Everyone knows you and most of the details of your life including your wealth status. Paint a target on your back and you will eventually get shot. This is why most celebrities hire body guards. Too many wild monkeys in today’s zoos.

Don’t be too upset Drew… This whole thing was staged as we all know that most of the celebrities the empty headed ones anyway are all about furthering Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategy which is to remove any means of self-defense and open our borders to the seventh century savages.

Not happy this happened , i can only hope it opens her eyes to some realities.

How did the black guy get enough cash to buy her that fancy ring?

He claimed he was broke last year and went to the “Suck berg” begging for cash.

I think the reason people thinking and saying the things they are – is because of articles like this:


The article shows how shallow people are today – just my not so humble opinion. Her tits and ass are more important to millions than life itself it would seem.

Stupid people get what is coming to them because they are stupid/careless. One might get themselves raped because they were ‘careless’ enough to put themselves into a vulnerable position. I would say, ‘what do they expect might have happened, you have now reaped the natural consequence of your action. What was only potential before became reality’. To me it’s more a question of the laws of the universe, than a moral judgment. Same with the robbery or any ridicule they get.
But to say someone deserves to get raped…. is a little harsh dude. IMO.
Kim can’t be too surprised by the consequence in this scenario, she should have considered the potential.

I am disappointed to hear some of these comments coming from Rebel readers.
Thank you Canadian Mongrel for having class and integrity.

As Brian said, any man would want to protect someone he loved.

Steve Hicken – I think it was staged too! She must be getting low on cash and her bank account needs to be replenished!

Liza – stupid people deserve stupid shit!! Who is she trying to impress?? The Clintoon gang? Really hard to find any sympathy for stupid.

Too bad it happened – but if it does have to happen – it could not have happened to a nicer person.

I suspect her security detail will all be looking for work now.

Why would anyone wear that stuff in public?



I will let you decide.

It was just another staged show brought to you by the anti-gunny’s courtesy of the Kardashian family.
This set up was staged just in time with a famous person to fit in with Hillary’s campaign ideology..
The same story with one of the unwashed masses wouldn’t have even made the headlines.

I do not think anyone deserves to be the victim of violence. If I saw a muslim lady in full hijab being attacked, I would be there, for her, with my old guy fists. If I saw a slut in the slut walk being attacked, same. I have done so in the past, and will in the future even if it means making a cane a weapon.

Dr. Genius, that’s harsh dude.

Couldn’t the crooks have picked someone to rob you could actually feel sorry for?
commented 2016-10-03 19:32:44 -0400
She’s a vocal anti-gun activist. She deserved to be raped and murdered for her idiocy — raped and murdered in a city with super-strict gun control like Paris. I wonder if she’ll be taking armed bodyguards everywhere she goes from now on like the other celebrity anti-gun activists.

Robert – she mite look nice – but her mind is f**ked! I wouldn’t want to be in the same room with her – she’s too stupid to be around.
commented 2016-10-03 18:48:16 -0400
Yes we can sympathize with crime victims, BUT isn’t she one of the anti-gunners – always spouting PC crap? Isn’t she just a famous whore?? Whores are always getting ripped off – not that I would condone that – but reality is reality!!

Keith Richards,
The whole cult of celebrity thing is obnoxious yes … but she is not fat or gross. That’s a pretty fine looking woman where I come from ;)
commented 2016-10-03 17:03:30 -0400
Sorry Brian, She is a Hillary supporter. Now she knows -How ordinary people feel when they are silenced, mugged, raped etc..and the liberal justice kleptocrazy takes the side of the perpetrators..
commented 2016-10-03 16:56:48 -0400
I don’t necessarily think it’s funny she was robbed. I think the real humour derives from the fact she came face to face with a reality she thought she was vaccinated against. This is the type of shit we wish liberal career politicians would experience so their whole facade would come crumbling down. Nothing like the real world to kick you in the girl balls.

no one has ever carried around 10 million in jewelry when going to another country. only an idiot would do that. Bet you they were fakes and she’s trying to collect on insurance. takes a ton of money to keep the fat ass in style.

Tourism took a hit in Paris after the terrorist attacks. This won’t help.

Or the fat pig traveled to Paris with over valued jewelry and the insurance companies must now pay – this is the way the 1% make their profits.

Kim Kartrashian is an attention whore who documents her every move on social media which probably made her an easy target.
commented 2016-10-03 16:04:13 -0400
Being a Kardashian is Kim’s only talent as is Wests obnoxious electronic mic singing and rude comments his only talent. Both the Kardashians and West have put themselves out there and it brings them money, fame and some ridicule. It’s the price they pay.

I’m sorry Brian, anyone who travels to foreign countries with how many millions of dollars of jewellery? is just asking for trouble.

Fat, gross, quasi porn pig.

Reads like an insurance job – bitch must be going broke.
