Why It Saddens Me To Hear People Laugh About Kim Kardashian's Robbery

Kim is a woman, a celebrity who was taken advantage of and robbed, and no part of that is humorous to me.

Since the news broke out about Kim Kardashian's infamous robbery I have happened to over-hear a lot of negative comments on the subject. I've heard classmates and colleagues laugh at the fact that this woman, who is so heavily guarded by security, could be robbed. How can a woman so famous and "untouchable" be stolen from? How can Kim Kardashian really be robbed like a common citizen?

Well here's the thing, as a devoted Kim K. lover and follower, I feel nothing but sympathy and pity for the beautiful, Armenian, fashion icon. Kim was entering her and Kanye Wests' Parisian apartment just a few days ago when two men dressed as Paris police officers tied her up in her bathroom, gagged her with duct-tape, and left her to steal her valuables. One of these valuables being her multi-million dollar wedding ring. After wiggling her hands free from the restraints, she ran to her apartment balcony and screamed for help.

And people are laughing about this poor woman's troubles.

Regardless of if you like or respect Kim Kardashian, you have to realize what was going on in her mind at the time of the robbery. Kim states in multiple interviews after the event that she immediately feared that she was going to be raped by her attackers. Any woman should sympathize with this fear.

So where were her bodyguards? Well imagine being so famous and recognizable that no matter what state or country you are in, people scream to see and touch you- Kim Kardashian is continuously bombarded with fans. And so, it is not uncommon for her to go into her apartments or homes without her security flanking her. She wants some alone time every once in a while, just like everyone else. She assumed her apartment was safe. But, authorities have concluded that one of Kim's own security member, or an employee of the apartment building must have tipped off the robbers, and helped them identify her room and lack of security at the time. She was betrayed by an employee or security team member-that is why she was alone and vulnerable. That is why she feared for her safety-her life.

And that is why it sickens me to hear peers and colleagues laugh about this. Sure, it is a bit ironic that woman so rich and famous could be robbed, but there is nothing funny about a woman thinking she is going to be sexually-assaulted.

Just two days ago Kim was spotted leaving her home in New York with husband Kanye West and children North and Saint West. Kim's body language toward the paparazzi and her grungy "dressed for comfort" outfit reveals a lot about what the celebrity must be going through. Kim has also stated that she "blames herself" for the incident. She blames herself for being tied-up and gagged in her own home. She blames herself for being robbed and taken advantage of.

And I just find that despicable. For those fellow fans of Kim Kardashian, I hope we can all agree that we're praying for you Kim. We wish you the best recovery from such a traumatizing event, and we're so happy that you have an immensely strong family and support system behind you.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7524

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
