Kim Kardashian robbery: Chrissy Teigen, James Corden comment
Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint in Paris early Monday morning and reportedly robbed of up to $10 million in jewelry — an incident that isn’t a laughing matter to Chrissy Teigen.
“Some sh– just isn’t funny. I see you trying, but it isn’t,” Teigen wrote on Twitter, without mentioning the Kardashian robbery by name. “Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you’d make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets.”
After engaging with a few people on Twitter who mocked her comments, Teigen added, “I dunno. It’s hard to explain because everyone thinks money and fame is pure awesome, so it just sounds whiny. I get it, trust me. Go off. It is just a weird little world that I cannot expect anyone to get. I know it seems super awesome and laughable. I know.”
When one user wrote, “No one likes robbery at gunpoint. Then again should people feel sorry for someone who owns millions of $ in jewelry alone?” Teigen added, “No one is begging you for sympathy. I know the game plan is to naturally hate celebrities.”
Teigen, who is friends with Kardashian, concluded her commentary, writing, “I’m not trying to be condescending. I really do get it. I would be the same way if I didn’t have the random opportunity to see both sides. … Please do not think that I think celebrities are special snowflakes. I just miss empathy, in general, for everyone. … Anyhow, got away from my original point but I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for anyone. Just appreciate a solid convo on the tweeter.”
In addition to Teigen, Late Late Show host James Corden also expressed a desire for people to treat Kardashian with respect following the robbery.
“People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she’s a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend. Be nice or shut up,” Corden wrote.
Kardashian has since left Paris after giving a statement to police. Head to PEOPLE for more details on the reported crime.
