Reality TV moghul Kim Kardashian West, who is married to rapper Kanye West was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room in Paris on 2 October. The robbers were reportedly masked and dressed as policemen. Kim is in France for the ongoing Paris Fashion Week with sister Kourtney, mom Kris and her two kids, Saint West and North West. Nobody else but Kim was reportedly in the room when the incident took place.
While there is no one version of the event, it is believed that jewellery worth millions was stolen.
"She is badly shaken but physically unharmed," Kim's representative told E! News, even as Kanye left a concert in New York midway to rush to Paris.

While fans of the Kardashian empire expressed concern and horror at the news, tasteless jokes and opinions of a few cynical people are doing the rounds. Did Kim do a Ryan Lochte in Paris?
Twitter's rather divided.
