So scary! Khloe and Lamar are the latest celebrities to be added to the list of stars who have been swatted, but the details of this prank phone call are rather alarming!
Police raced to the scene at Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s house in Los Angeles, with guns drawn, after a 911 dispatcher received a call claiming that Lamar had been shot! We’re so glad it was a false alarm — cops found Lamar at home, unharmed.
Khloe Kardashian Swatted — Cops Called: Lamar Odom’s Been Shot
This was a full police response, an eyewitness tells TMZ. The 911 dispatcher was told that Lamar and a friend had a heated argument and the friend shot the basketball player.
The group responsible for this phone call is reportedly the same one that has targeted numerous other celebs over the last few months, including Diddy, Magic Johnson, Clint Eastwood, Rihanna and Chris Brown.
Swatting: The Movie? — It’s A Growing Epidemic
Not to make any light of this situation, but it seems like it’s only a matter of time before a movie is made about celebrity swattings. There’s already a film, The Bling Ring, based off a group of fame-obsessed teenagers known as the Bling Ring, who used the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes. This situation sounds eerily similar.
But in all seriousness, we hope those who are guilty are punished — someone could seriously get hurt, especially with cops swarming celebrities’ homes with guns drawn.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will the SWATTING ever stop?
