Not funny! Tyson Beckford took to his Instagram Oct. 5 to poke fun at Kim Kardashian’s horrifying Paris robbery. He posted a heartless meme of a man dressed in all black with a ski mask on, similar to the description of the robbers in her life-altering attack. See the photo here and read the hurtful caption.
Tyson Beckford, 45, made a bold move Oct. 5 when he posted a photo mocking the Paris ambush of Kim Kardashian, 35. He posted the photo, (seen above), with the caption “Who comes up with this….,” followed by three crying laughing emojis. As you can see, the meme displays a man dressed in all black with a matching ski mask — Similar to that of the reported attackers who tied, bound and locked the reality star in the bathroom of her Paris chateau Oct. 3. The caption, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” pokes fun at her reality show.
Some fans laughed along with Tyson in the comments of the thoughtless photo, while others fought back saying it was “not funny” and “wrong.” Tyson isn’t the first person to slam the mother-of-two during this emotional time. Fans have been creating harsh memes and writing awful comments online, accusing Kim of making up the entire attack.
Talk show hosts were quick to put their two cents in about the terrible robbery on their Oct. 3 shows. Although James Cordon, 38, defended Kim’s frightening situation on The Late Late Show, telling people not to even comment on it, other hosts had different opinions. “No one was hurt, but in a mansion in Paris, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint,” Conan O’Brien, 53, said to his audience. “Kim was bound and gagged, then the robbers broke in.” Jimmy Kimmel, 48, managed to poke fun at Ryan Lochte, 32, in his opening monologue when he spoke of the horrifying attack. “Right now, Ryan Lochte is on the set of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ praying Kim made this whole thing up.” Harsh.
As we previously reported, Kim was held at gunpoint inside her Paris apartment, Oct. 3, when the robbers stole $11 million worth of jewels, including her massive diamond engagement ring. The case is currently under investigation, but recent reports claim the Paris police think it could have been an inside job. And, with another report, Oct. 5, claiming her body guard Pascal Duvier filed for bankruptcy just weeks before the attack, speculation is at an all time high. Wow.
Kim has been completely silent since the frightening attack, as she’s been held up in her Tribeca apartment in NYC. However, her rep did reveal a statement that she was left “physically unharmed,” but “badly shaken.” Family and friends have been rallying around Kim. Her BFFs, Jonathan Cheban, 42, and La La Anthony, 37, have been spotted walking into the city hideaway to visit the emotionally damaged star. We hope Kim is doing ok, as she has been through such a traumatizing experience.
