While the Kardashian family has been fodder for James Corden’s Late Late Show” monologue in the past, it’s clear he doesn’t think there’s anything funny about Kim’s frightening run-in with armed robbers.
The late night talk show host took to Twitter on Sunday to defend the 35-year-old reality star after news broke that she had been held up at gunpoint by two armed, masked men who entered her hotel room in Paris dressed as police officers.
“People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she’s a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend,” Corden, 38, wrote. “Be nice or shut up.”
Kim’s friend Chrissy Teigen also spoke out against those mocking the reality star, writing, “Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you’d make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets.”
Kim’s spokesperson told ET on Sunday that the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” following the incident.
Kim is currently in the City of Light for Paris Fashion Week, where she’s been documenting her trip with her sisters, Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, on social media. It’s unclear if her sisters or her members of her private security team were present when the robbery occurred.
Just before news of the robbery broke, Kim’s husband, Kanye West, abruptly ended his performance at the Meadows Festival in Queens, New York, mid-song, telling the audience that there had been a “family emergency” and that he had to stop the show.
