Since Kim Kardashianwas robbed at gunpoint in Paris earlier this month, one of the troubling conversations we’ve heard is that she was somehow asking for it by sharing photos of expensive jewelry. Now, the internet is applying the same victim-blaming logic to an Instagram photo posted by sister Khloe Kardashian.
The reality star shared an image of her hand alongside that of her rumored new beau, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson, who received his new 6.5-karat NBA championship ring on Tuesday night.
Captioned with a simple heart emoji, the pair unabashedly show off their respective bling in the photo, sending Kardashian’s followers into a commenting frenzy.
“Who tf posts a diamond when her sister’s diamond was just robbed at gunpoint,” one follower wrote.
“Didn’t Kim get robbed the last time yall posted up bougie?” another chimed in, while others chastised Khloe for not learning her lesson.
“Girl you gonna get robbed too!” someone else warned.
Days before men disguised as police officers broke into Kim’s apartment and tied her up in a bathroom, she posted a photo of the multimillion-dollar engagement ring that her attackers would later steal along with her cell phone and other personal items.
Kim is reportedly reconsidering her public displays of her family’s wealth after the incident, and she has largely stayed out of the public eye. But while her once-active social media accounts have been left to collect internet dust, her sisters continue to post away.
It’s unclear how or when Kim will return ― she could be losing up to $1 million per month for her social media dormancy ― but oh, how we miss her. We’ll just sit here waiting patiently until she breaks the internet again.
