Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint in her hotel room in Paris early Sunday morning by thieves who were impersonating French police officers. The robbers tied up Kardashian West, locked her in the bathroom, and stole more than ten million dollars' worth of jewelry from her. She was not physically hurt, but understandably very shaken up.
This is a scary and serious situation for anyone, but trolls and Kardashian haters worldwide saw it as an opportunity to bash the mother of two with sexist comments and cruel jokes. Luckily, a whole bevy celebrities came out to show that they have Kim's back.
Kim's close friend Chrissy Teigen essentially became a one woman troll fighting machine.
Kim Kardashian West is a polarizing figure to say the least, and while it is sometimes fun to joke about her millions of selfies or voluptuous butt, being held at gunpoint is traumatic at best and no joking matter. You don't need to relate to someone or even like them to show them empathy.
