Late Night Hosts Joke About Kim Kardashian Robbery
Late night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O’Brien joked about Kim Kardashian being held up at gunpoint in Paris early Monday morning. While the scary robbery itself is not funny, the talk shows hosts didn’t ignore the big news story and found angles to make light of.
Kimmel brought up how Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in the home she rented in Paris, and tied up and left in the bathroom before wondering, “How is it possible… Somehow these guys found the one moment this decade that this woman wasn’t surrounded by 40 people with cameras, and they took advantage of it.”
He then said he had a personal message for the criminals: “We will tolerate a lot of nonsense, but you do not mess with Kim Kardashian West. Whether you like her or not, she’s one of us, and if we find out you harmed even a single extension on her People’s Choice Award-winning head, we will find you and make you so les miserables, you will wish you were never born to a woman who doesn’t shave her armpits.” And as punishment, cracked Kimmel, “We’ll force you to watch ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.'”
Kimmel also expressed, “Right now, Ryan Lochte is on the set of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ praying Kim made this whole thing up.” The host, of course, was making reference to Lochte getting in hot water for fibbing about being held up when he was in Rio during the Olympics.
Conan O’Brien told his audience, in case they hadn’t heard, “No one was hurt, but in a mansion in Paris, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint.” He continued, “Kim was bound and gagged, then the robbers broke in.” Knowing full well he was in dangerous comedy territory, O’Brien said of himself and the Kardashian joke, “And with that, his career was over.”
