Someone Is Selling A Kim K Robbery Inspired Costume – And People Are P*ssed

Not cool, guys. Not cool.

Kim K

Kim Kardashian’s robbery in Paris is no laughing matter. Lets us reminder ourselves that a woman was bound and gagged by five masked men as they ransacked the hotel room where she was staying alone; an ordeal that would be indescribably terrifying, no matter how famous you are or how many millions you have in the bank.

And yet, there are people who reckon it’s cool to make fun of what happened to Kim last week, not least the company who chose to produce a fancy dress costume based around the whole ordeal.

The US-based company are currently selling a costume called the Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume that consists of a black wig, sunglasses, a diamond ring, a mouth gag and rope, and though they don’t mention Kim by name, the item’s description makes it very obvious who they’re talking about.

It reads:

“This Halloween it’s all about the #Hallomeme and who better than America’s goddess of all things glamorous “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume?”

“She has devoted her life to promoting American decadence, youth, and hedonism but all that flashy living caught up with her one night in Paris when armed men bound her, stole her jewelry and her peace of mind.

“This Halloween have some fun with pop culture and dress just like the Queen of Social media with our sensational “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume” Costume.”

Understandably, people are outraged, with many branding the costume “despicable” under the item’s listing.

One commenter writes “No matter your opinion about the person, making light of assault is disgusting,” while another adds “Whoever thought of this is an inconsiderate idiot.”

Yep, we’re inclined to agree.

As of yet, the item is still live on the site but we’re hoping that it’s only a matter of time until it gets taken down.
