Kim Kardashian robbery-inspired costume removed from site
Earlier this week, a Halloween costume inspired by Kim Kardashian’s recent Paris robbery was being sold online by a retailer named Costumeish. By Tuesday afternoon, the retailer announced that it had officially pulled the costume from the site because of the excessive amount of backlash it had received.
“Due to the extensive out-lash we have decided to remove the ‘Parisian Heist’ costume from our website,” the tweeted. “We are sorry if it offended anyone.”
The costume, named “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Kit,” was being sold for $69.99 and came equipped with a “white short sexy robe,” a long black wig, oversize sunglasses, a fake gag, two feet of rope and a ‘$4 Million Dollar’ ring.
Kardashian was gagged, bound, and robbed at gunpoint when five men dressed as policemen broke into her hotel during Paris Fashion Week earlier this month and stole more than $10 million worth of jewelry.
Khloé Kardashian appeared on Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and told the talk show host that her sister is “not doing that well” following the robbery.
“I mean, it’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together, and we do appreciate all of your guys’ love and support and it will take time. You know, it was horrible what happened to her,” she said.
Since the robbery, Kim has not been seen on social media and production for Keeping Up With the Kardashians is on hold indefinitely.
