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.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
