PARIS — It’s classless to wish bad fortune to anyone, and everyone knows we like to keep it classy at Gossip Extra.
That said, it’s hard to take Kim Kardashian‘s gunpoint robbery of millions of dollars worth of jewelry from a uber-chic private Paris apartment during fashion week as anything other than a redistribution of wealth.
Seriously, who travels with $11 million worth of jewelry?
According to reports, she who makes her living showing off her big butt was tied up and held at gunpoint by five men dressed as police officers.
Thieves took a jewelry box with $6.7 million of jewels in it and a $4.5 million ring.
The ring may have been the 15-carat second engagement ring designed by her husband Kanye West that he gave to her as a present.
And since she got the ring last month, she hasn’t been able to stop showing it off on social media.
The queen of the selfie and biggest proponent of Selfish culture posted pictures with the obvious undercurrent: Oooh, look at me! I have a $5 million ring on my finger! Ooh, don’t you wish you had such a sparkler?
Well, someone else does now.
We’re glad nothing worse than a gunpoint robbery happened to the reality star whose Keeping Up With The Kardashians family highlights just about all the social ails facing America: Greed, lust, envy, spite, vulgarness, superficiality and fame-hunger.
And she shouldn’t be too worried. Her famous butt was unharmed and we’ve no doubt she can amass millions more, and jewelry like that is likely to be insured.
But, let’s hope this starts discouraging people from supporting the Kardashian Klan, who obviously suffers from having too much money and not enough sense.
No one, not a king, not a queen, and especially someone who’s known for her big ass should wear a $4.5 million ring.
Not when the minimum wage isn’t a living wage. Not when middle-class families in America are worrying about an uncertain economic future for their children. Not when the gig-economy has replaced security and mothers and fathers have to work outside of the home. Not when senior citizens are staying in the workforce because they have to, because their pensions were gutted.
