Kim Kardashian Paris Robbery

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian was recently robbed at her hotel in Paris.  Sources say five men dressed as police officers showed up to her hotel in Paris at 2:00 in the morning.  She was held up at gunpoint.  The men allegedly covered her mouth with duct tape, tied her hands and feet together and threw her in the bathtub.  According to Kim’s accusations the men only spoke french.  The suspects ended up getting away with 11 million dollars worth of jewelry including a 4 million dollar ring Kim’s husband had just bought her.  Shortly after the robbery police checked nearby security cameras which showed the men fleeing the scene.  Three men were on bicycles while the other two were on foot.  A lot of people are blaming the robbery on Kim because she is constantly over sharing information on social media.  Kim flaunted her ring and jewelry on Snapchat.  Kim is also constantly posting her location on social media. In fact hours before the robbery Kim posted a video showing her ring and that she was alone in her hotel room.  Kim’s decisions to constantly overshare on social media has obviously landed her in a messy situation.  Since the robbery Kim hasn’t been active on social media.  Kim’s family says that,” It’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together “.  Lack of control played a part in this story because once Kim posted her location and flaunted her jewelry to her 84 million followers it was up for anybody to see. Anybody could use the pictures, videos , and information any they wanted too. As soon as Kim pressed the post button she immediately lost control of it. Sadly lack of control ended her up in a traumatic situation.  Permanence plays a role in Kim’s story because anything that she post is permanently in the public eye and up for anybody to view.  Even if Kim were to delete a picture or video it’s likely that somebody took a screenshot or saved it to their phone somehow.  Immediacy also plays a role in Kim’s story because as soon as she posted it anybody could immediately do whatever that wanted with it or put it wherever they wanted to.  Permanence, Lack of control, and immediacy all played a role in Kim’s story.  Her situation could have been easily avoided if she didn’t overshare on social media.
