Karl Lagerfeld seems to think Kim Kardashian is partly to blame for the traumatic robbery she faced in Paris Sunday night.
The fashion designer spoke to the Associated Press about the robbery that occurred at the Parisian hotel where Kardashian was staying for Paris Fashion Week.
“[She is] too public, too public — we have to see in what time we live. You cannot display your wealth then be surprised that some people want to share it,” Lagerfeld said following his Chanel Paris Fashion Week showing. “I don’t understand why [Kardashian] was in a hotel with no security and things like this. 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.”
While Lagerfeld might be offering a warning now, he also shared words of love for Kardashian.
Other celebrities offered their words of support, notably after social media users began joking about the incident.
Kardashian was held at gunpoint by two “armed and masked” men who entered the residence and stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry from her. The reality star and mother of two feared for her life during the attack.
“She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home,” a source told E! News. “Then they wrapped her mouth in tape and put her in the bathtub. She thought they were for sure going to kill her.”
The 36-year-old was in the unit with her friend and stylist Simone Harouche at the time of the robbery. According to E!, Harouche was able to text Kardashian’s bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, for help.
