The Internet is not happy with Costumeish, a company currently selling a Halloween costume that looks a lot like reality star Kim Kardashian as a robbery victim.
Costumeish’s “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim” outfit seems to mock Kardashian’s recent encounter with armed robbers in Paris last week, where she was bound, gagged, and had millions of dollars worth of jewelry stolen, according to a previous report.
“This Halloween it’s all about the #Hallomeme and who better than America’s goddess of all things glamorous ‘Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume?’” reads the costume’s description. “She has devoted her life to promoting American decadence, youth, and hedonism, but all that flashy living caught up with her one night in Paris when armed men bound her, stole her jewelry and her peace of mind. This Halloween have some fun with pop culture and dress just like the Queen of Social media.”
The costume kit includes a short white robe, a long black wig, large sunglasses, a fake gag, two inches of rope, and a fake “$4 million ring,” which is the same price of the engagement ring robbers stole from Kardashian. Although her name is never mentioned in the costume’s description, many people on social media have drawn their own conclusions:
Despite the backlash, a company spokesperson told Fox News
that it has “no intentions of taking it down and it has been selling well.”
“Our deepest sympathy to the family and nobody deserves to go [through] what she did. We are not mocking her, however Halloween reflects pop culture and celebrities are no different,” the spokesperson told Fox.
Love it. It’s not turning a traumatizing event in which a very famous celebrity was bound and gagged and robbed of millions in priceless jewels into a mockery, It’s a celebration of famous socialites getting robbed at gun point. It’s an indictment that you’re a pop media icon and any aspect of your life should be highlighted on an overly commercialized holiday. It’s like an honor really. Yea you might be traumatized from the thought of a Parisian burglar point a gun at your face as you’re hopelessly tied up, but It’s not this companies fault that every chick wants to be you for Halloween as they get wasted taking jello shots trying to hook up.
Also Love how they just don’t flat out say it’s Kim Kardashian and just name every attribute a person would use to describe Kim K. It’s like when rap feuds happen and they don’t say the name of the person they’re dissing but once half the world hears it they just know who they’re talking about i.e the Pusha T/ Drake/Lil Wayne/ YMCMB/ Exodus 23:1. As long as they don’t say the name, if you get offended then that means you’re the one that’s making assumption as to who fits the profile but it’s still not their fault. This can be any number of celebrities that have 4 million dollar rings and that have been recently been in the spotlight as a grand larceny victim. Shame on all you people just assuming its Mrs. West.
Look I don’t hate the guy. He was a long time side character to a famous Iconic movie series growing up in the 90/2000s. But yo how is Verne Troyer famous enough to get free pair of Yeezys sent to him in special toddler sizes. Is he like super chill with Kanye or something I don’t know about? I haven’t even thought of the guy since like whenever they last showed Austin Powers on TBS 5 years after the movie hit theaters. I know this is coming off as a hater move, but the sneaker game is something any regular guy wants to jump into. Never owned a pair of Jordans, never had Air Force Ones. I always had some basic ass regular reeboks or some skater shoes cause that’s what was hot growing up. Nowadays I wear some nice clarks because they give me a little lift and cause i think that somehow if i wear nicer shoes or boots, girls wont notice im fat and gross with messy hair. Don’t get me wrong I like them but I remember the day back in 6th grade when this black kid named Germain said he liked my reeboks cause “they was the original black man shoes” and ever since then I felt like i needed to make the leap into fresh kicks but never did and it plagues me to this day and even more knowing that somehow Mini-me is getting hooked up for free. It’s such a random pick, it would be like if Meatloaf suddenly got hooked up with Yeezys a note from KimYe. What the fuck, Kanye. Hook a blogger up.
P.s- Yeezys still remind me of those water shoes old ladies would wear by the pool. But if they’re hot i want them
P.P.S- This picture of Shaq palming Verne Troyers head/body is hilarious
Daily Mail- While Michael Phelps is now considered the ‘greatest of all time’ with 23 Olympic gold medals, an unlikely competitor once bested him in the pool. More than two decades ago, basketball player Kris Humphries was a talented swimmer who beat Phelps – and 12-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte – in numerous events registered by USA Swimming. The Atlanta Hawks forward eventually quit the sport to pursue basketball, but Humphries still holds several records among his age group in Minnesota. In 1995, when Humphries was just 10 years old, the basketball player who later shot to fame after his brief marriage to Kim Kardashian out-swam Phelps in six events, NBA.com reported. Humphries beat the Olympian by nearly six seconds in the 200-meter individual medley, an event Phelps has dominated in the last four Olympics. While Phelps recorded the fastest 100-meter butterfly for his age group in the US that year, he lost to Humphries in the 100-meter freestyle by nearly four seconds. Humphries was an adept sprinter, posting faster times than Phelps in the 50-meter freestyle, butterfly, backstroke, and breaststroke. He also set two records in his age bracket in the 50-meter and 100-meter freestyle events, that lasted for more than 18 years. Ryan Lochte, Phelps’ best-known rival, also appears in the 1995 ledgers, losing out to Humphries in the 50-meter backstroke and 50-meter freestyle. But his love of the sport didn’t seem to last, and Humphries told People magazine in 2003: ‘I was so good at a young age that I got a little burnt out.’ I also grew up in the Michael Jordan era. For me, I watched [basketball] and saw it as a challenge. ‘It’s hard to stay focused on something when you have a ton of success at a young age, so I picked up basketball a little later and rolled with that.’The basketball player seems to enjoy the occasional dip in the pool, but lamented on Instagram last year: ‘Pool workout. Swimming isn’t that easy anymore.’
Ahh the question that comes up every 4 years. Would you rather be a pro athletes that play a real sport or one of these Olympic athletes that gets to compete for their country and try to win a gold medal. Now they say Michael Phelps was born with a perfect swimmers body but in hindsight, you think Kris Humphries would go back and choose swimming over Basketball? I mean the problem is out of the thousands of athletes competing at the Olympics probably 95% of them are just scrubs that work at subways making sandwiches and only bask in the glory for 2 weeks every 4 years. Now on one hand you’re Kris Humphries. Journey men NBA player who probably has no real notoriety if it wasn’t for the fact that he had sex with Kim Kardashian. That’s either a good or bad thing depending on if you think Kim K is hot or not but in the end is fucking around with a net worth of $18 mil. Sounds pretty decent being a career NBA player with a nice amount of pocket change. But then you have Michael Phelps who’s the most decorated Olympian with 23 gold medals and FIFTY-FIVE million dollars for swimming. I mean I know there’s a good chance with the way NBA salary caps and TV deals that there could of been a chance that Humphries got around that number but the fact of the matter is, he’s no Lebron or cracking anything near the top 10 highest paid ever. On a more comparable scale, Humphries beat Lochte too who has around $3 Million. Definitely would rather be Humphries now than Ryan Lochte getting robbed at gun point in Rio with only $3 mil to show for it. But he’s got to at least somewhere in the back of his mind probably think if he just stuck with it, he could be in Phelps shoes with nearly 30 gold medals hanging from his neck, $55 million, and free from all the controversy that was Kim Kardashian.
TMZ– Kim Kardashian’s life motto is firmly cemented …. once you go BlackBerry … you never go back, and thanks to a top dog at the mobile company, she’ll never be without her longtime companion.
Kim K went into panic mode Wednesday after her BlackBerry Bold took its last gasp. The conundrum … no Bolds no mo’.
But it’s BB to the rescue … company exec Alex Thurber tells TMZ they’ve got Kim covered. They’re sending her their most secure Android smartphone … a smart move that surely has Tim Cook sorely disappointed.
There is a fly in the ointment. The new BlackBerry smartphones don’t have the iconic keyboard, but Thurber says BB is developing an old-school keyboard for its new device.
So, in the fruit basket of life … Kim continues to choose berries over apples.
Not gonna lie, my thoughts on Kim Kardashian over the time she’s been famous has been such a wild ride. Went from watching her sex tape, watching her explode as Hollywoods next “It” girl, to absolutely hating her guts because of what she influences on society to kinda siding with her because its the contrarian point of view, to now I might try to be BBM friends with her. You know who else is Team Blackberry? This guy.
It’s been a long painful battle. Dealing with the masses laughing at me for carrying around dead technology like it’s an abacus or something. And I feel for Kim K here. The Blackberry Bolds are dead. Ive always said if blackberry comes out with a phone with a keyboard I like, Ill ride with it to the end. I wasn’t a big enough force i guess to send the failing company into over haul to design me another Bold. I don’t have that power but you know who does? Kim Kardashian. She might be my only savior. Don’t get me wrong if push comes to shove and Blackberry doesn’t make a new Bold for me, I wont cry. I know i fought the battle long and hard with out ever relenting for nearly a decade when technology and smartphone boom was at it’s strongest. But in that time period I’ve come to learn and accept that Kim K. and the Kardashian clan are one of the strongest forces out there and it’s time for me to get out of the battle field so they can continue the fight on Cellphones with keyboards on them. So as long as the battery stays charged and at least one person text me so I can write a novel with the QWERTY keyboard, my allegiance is with Kimberly Kardashian West and the Blackberry Family.
