Earlier this week, news broke that Kim Kardashian had been robbed at gunpoint by armed men disguised as police officers whilst staying in Paris for the fashion week shows.

After the terrifying ordeal, which resulted in the 35-year-old being handcuffed in the bathroom in order for robbers to steal over $10 million worth of jewellery, Kim faced a barrage of criticism from social media followers for sharing images of her expensive jewels on Instagram.

And according to one police spokesperson, the robbers had planned the attack based on 'possession that had been seen and noticed via social media.'

And Karl Lagerfeld was quick to join critics yesterday, as he showed no sympathy for Kim’s attack in an interview conducted following his spring/summer '17 Chanel show.

The creative director of Chanel told reporters, “I don't understand why she was in a hotel with no security. If you are that famous and you put all your jewellery on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room.”

He continued: “You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.”

Despite his controversial comments, a day after the ordeal, the designer seemingly displayed support for the reality star in a handwritten note saying, "Dearest Kim, we are all with you. Love, Karl."
