Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner Accused of Rudely Mocking Wives of ALS Charity Founders

by at .

Like just about every other celebrity on the planet, Kim Kardashian participated in the ice bucket challenge last year in order to raise funds and awareness for ALS research charities.

But while Kim was happy to get doused on live TV to support the cause, the wives of the ALS patients who started the Ice Bucket Challenge claim that Mrs. Kardashian-West and her mom, Kris Jenner, were shockingly rude to them during a recent encounter.

Here's the story:

The entire Kardashian clan is in Cannes at the moment for the annual Cannes Lions Festival.

Jenn Quinn and Julie Frates, who are also involved with the event, claim that when they approached Kim and Kris at a high-end women's clothing store, the reality stars shut them down in brutal fashion.

“We introduce ourselves and talk about our inspiring husbands," Quinn wrote on her Facebook page today. "Kris responded with, ‘Oh fun’ and DECLINED taking a picture with us!”

“We even explained that our husbands have ALS and nothing. We just wanted a picture. We were in shock by the lack of caring and engagement.”

Reps for Kim have spoken to TMZ about the incident, and they say that things did not go down the way Quinn and Frates claim.

Kim says she was mauled by fans the moment she entered the store, and some of them even pounded on her dressing room door while she was naked.

She says she hurried out after making her purchases, and neither Quinn nor Frates approached her for a photo.

Kris says that her "Oh, fun" comment was in response to the ladies telling her that they were enjoying their first trip to France and had been doing a lot of shopping.

Frates and Quinn say Kim's version of events is nonsense, and the store was empty except for the four women involved in the encounter.

So it looks like it's a case of she said, she said, and unfortunately, for the first time in Kim's life no paparazzi were on hand to document the interaction!
