A sore spot for the most loyal Kim Kardashian fans, but the hype has significantly died down since the incident. I feel less guilty to write about it.

It has been 3 months since Kim was tied and gagged at her hotel and as a woman I felt for her. To walk past a group of men can be intimidating but these men intruded in her personal space and robbed her of not only her valued posessions, ($8.7 million worth of jewellery) These men robbed her off her pride, which is a big deal to the average joe so must of hit the social media maven hard.
People laughed and called it a hokes, others said she deserved it, she had it coming. All opinions are justifiable but I believe it highlights the naivety of some wealthy individuals. The class divide between the wealthy and poor is as wide as the Grand Canyon. Material possessions are upheld with such esteem, it is a must to be decked out in the latest designer or to wear the most commercially relevant brand. And people will do anything to get them.
Gang crime right or wrong is a growing culture
It’s disappointing but us poor folk want what the rich have. I include myself because round were I’m from these types of robberies are common. But with whom should the blame lie? Personally I feel as it should be the rich. That whole you can’t work here unless your from a particular background or you speak differently so you can not be promoted to a position higher than ‘assistant.’ Once people get rich they forget about the poor and the poor gets poorer. I have an suggestion maybe if some of the money was put into the educational resources of the poorer areas the divide may not be so great?
Since the robbery as expected Kim Kardashian has vowed to scale back, the overall racey image she has had for years to a more subtle look, as she stands by husband Kanye West who also has his own troubles.
