Kim Kardashian has faced a lot of criticism since the news of her being bound, gagged and held at gunpoint in her Paris hotel earlier this month by five burglars, who then robbed her of millions of dollars in jewelry, broke out.
The critique that may be the most on point, however, may just be from Karl Lagerfield, surprisingly enough.
While at Paris Fashion Week, the 83-year-old Chanel creative director said in an interview:
It’s a very bad thing for Paris, but I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security. If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.
Lagerfeld then commented about Kardashian’s assailants:
We make all the efforts to make Paris appealing then suddenly…apparently they were people from the East, from Eastern Europe, They are the worst.
Kardashian was staying in a private residence at Hôtel de Pourtalès when the men, dressed as policemen, handcuffed and forced a concierge to lead them to her. They then tied and gagged her, locked her in the bathroom and proceeded to pocket over $10 million worth of jewelry, including a diamond ring worth $4.5 million.
Her husband, Kanye West, immediately canceled his show mid-performance at the Meadows Festival in New York City once he discovered the news.
