Now Khloé Kardashian's Being Slated For "Flaunting" Her Jewellery

"Girl you gonna be next to be robbed."

You're probably aware that three weeks ago Kim Kardashian endured a horrifying ordeal in which she was held up at gunpoint and robbed in a Paris apartment.

As well as two cell phones, Kim was also robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewellery.

And it didn't take long for the victim-blaming to set in, with people suggesting Kim had "asked for" the robbery by "flaunting her wealth" on social media. It was an idea reinforced by French police in the aftermath of the incident, too.

The reaction to @KimKardashian 's robbery shows women are still blamed for assaults by men + victim blaming still exists. Hope she is ok ❤️

The French police said that Kim "flaunting her wealth" could have made her a target. But as I pointed out at length here, women often suffer misogynistic blame when they're victims of a crime and it's no different here. The unpleasant, sexist subtext is that Kim deserved this ordeal – because of her lack of security, because she lives a luxurious lifestyle, because she posts photos of her jewellery on social media...or because she’s a woman, and unafraid to display sexuality, whichever combination used, the upshot is that she is somehow to blame for this act.

Well, last night Khloé shared a photo of her hand resting on what appears to be the hand of her rumoured new boyfriend Tristan Thompson. And both of them were wearing a lot of bling.

However, let's just remember once more: victim 👏 blaming 👏 is 👏 shitty.

people victim blaming Kim Kardashian..oh she shouldnt be flaunting so much.well when girls get raped "she shouldnt have been wearing that"?😒

And let's just focus on what we're actually seeing in this photo – it appears to be the first confirmation from Khloé that she is dating Tristan. Which, after a tough 12 months for her, is only good news.
