“Given her history, I bet she liked being bound and gagged.”
“Next time stop flaunting your arse all over social media, dumb sl*t.”
“I’d put a gun to her head too if it meant she’d put her clothes back on.”
These are some of the comments left on articles about Kim Kardashian West’s nightmare in Paris, where she was reportedly bound, gagged, and robbed at gunpoint.
These remarks took me less than one minute to find, but their impact has stayed with me much longer.
“Stupid f*cking whore. Hopefully now you disappear.”
“Maybe now she will put her kids first and stop getting naked.”
“I can only imagine your f*cked-up ugly crying face now, Kim.”
I shudder to think how many more of these senseless, breathless, gutless ‘jokes’ are out there — or how many people felt a surge of joy when news of Kim’s trauma first broke.
It’s chilling that, upon reading those headlines, many people thought ‘Good’. Because, if the misogynistic echoes of Twitter and Facebook are anything to go by, “that rich slut” who loves social media “had it coming”… right?
