Those of you who know me, know that I love the Kardashians and as many times I may be jealous of them or annoyed at how amazing their life is compared to mine, they are still my guilty pleasure and I love them dearly … even though I don’t know them … sounds awkward but you get the idea! Before I get into this I just want to say that I am in no way trying to criticise the situation or glorify the events that took place in any way. I am simply just detailing my thoughts on it.
Anyway as most of you know Kim was robbed at her apartment in Paris early on the morning of October 3rd, 2016. Kim vanished off all social media immediately after the unfortunate event took place (as you would) for months. Slowly as Kim started to re-appear on the social scene, more details about the robbery have come forward. ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ returned for a brand new season recently and this week’s episode detailed exactly what happened in Paris that night from none other than Kim herself. I won’t go into the details of what happened on here as it is a touchy subject and some people simply won’t want to read about all the details. I just want to give my opinion and say what I think about the whole ordeal.
Initially when I heard of the news, a few things came to my mind. At first I thought maybe it was a publicity stunt, because as you know that’s something celebrities do to boost their profile and receive a storm of media attention. But then I actually thought about it, why on earth would someone fake this? After hearing the details of what actually happened, I myself would never want to experience a situation like that nor would I want anyone else to go through what Kim went through that morning. I guess what gets me the most is that while she is this almost larger than life celebrity, she is still a mother, a wife, a sister and a daughter which rings true to all of us. Imagine if it happened to a loved one of yours? I imagine you would be heartbroken.
However, this unfortunate event that happened to Kim sends a very important message to not only other celebrities, but to regular people like us as this sort of thing can happen to anyone. Your social media presence can have detrimental effects if you aren’t careful and smart about it. It’s now known that the robbery took place as a result of those involved tailing Kim the whole time she was in Paris through her social media activity. They knew where she was and who she was with at all times as a result of all the social media updates on her many social media outlets such as ‘Snapchat’. I mean think about it, we pretty much document our lives through snapchat and it’s not hard at all to find out where someone is and what they are doing these days.
There’s no rules saying you can or can not open up your lives to others through social media. The choice is yours. We just need to remember when we do, people have the potential to gain insight into out lives which won’t always be a good thing. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and what I had to say! What are your thoughts on the situation?
