French police blame Kim Kardashian social media for robbery

Kim Kardashian's social media presence is responsible for the robberyKim Kardashian‘s incessant social media activity has been cited as a reason for the highly publicized robbery in Paris.

In the early hours of Monday, October 3rd, the 35-year-old reality show star was in an exclusive Paris apartment when she was tied up at gunpoint and locked in a washroom by masked assailants who proceeded to rob her of over $10 million in jewelry. Included in the goods that the thieves made off with was Kim’s 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring.

In a statement given to CNN, Johanna Primevert, chief spokeswoman for the Paris police department, said, “It was really the celebrity who was targeted, with possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media, and it was these goods that the attackers targeted.”

Adding to that, Kim’s former bodyguard Steve Stanulis said, “Security was out with the sisters and Kim had been showing all the jewelry on Snapchat. It’s a perfect storm to get robbed.”

Steve addressed the fashion in which Kim “flaunts her riches and diamonds” across social media platforms, saying that her endless activity on apps “invites trouble.”

Kim has nearly 50 million Twitter followers and 84 million Instagram followers.

French authorities are still searching for the five people suspected of assaulting and stealing from her at the Hotel de Pourtales.

Check out one of Kim’s recent Instagram posts below where her ring is prominently featured.

    And that’s exactly why no one feels sorry for these people. If they didn’t set it up themselves, then yes, they got exactly what they deserve. Flaunting your riches gets you robbed. Wake up call.

    No one deserves to get robbed.I think in future she will hopefully be more careful about her posts. I am always careful about what I post myself…😇

    Some times bad things happen to stupid people. My heart bleeds for her.

    Rosie O’Donnell in Nip/Tuck. That’s all I’m saying.

    It was most likely set up I thought that immediately. Insurance scam and fodder for her show.

    She’s a waste, a joke and a revolting human being.

    On a personal level,flauting your jewelry on social media is tempting fate.
    I Like Kim Kardashian,in this instance she was not very smart.
    Bragging about what you have is very unwise.
    Maybe Kim will learn a valuable lesson from this experience.
    I certainly hope the police catch the people who did this.
    If there are pawn shops in Paris the police should check there as well.

    Conan mentioned that at first, Kim Kardashian was nude & completely tied up.
    Then, the thieves showed up.

    (if this was real and not inside job) That is a pathetic thing to say!!

    Hey i don’t like her as much as the next person but to say it was her fault is like saying it’s girls fault they get raped because they wore a skirt or it’s ok to rob anyone who is showing off their wealth or to beat up someone walking down a dark street…pathetic!
