The NRA Just Posted the Most Classless Series of Tweets About Kim Kardashian’s Gunpoint Robbery

Thieves in Paris stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry.


Early Monday morning, Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint inside a luxury apartment in Paris, where the reality star had been staying while attending the city’s annual fashion week. The violent attack reportedly involved multiple men who tied up Kardashian West and pointed a gun to her head while they stole millions of dollars in jewelry, two cell phones, and her purse. The reaction on social media, while mixed, has largely been supportive of Kardashian West.

The National Rifle Association decided the robbery provided a perfect moment to release a series of tweets that appeared to mock calls for gun control, particularly in Paris where safety remains a top concern after the city sustained multiple terrorist attacks in recent years.

Kardashian West and her family have been outspoken in their support for stricter gun control laws, a position that, unsurprisingly, has lead to angry responses from the NRA.

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
