It’s been just over a week since Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, and the story shows no signs of leaving the headlines any time soon.

It doesn’t help that there are new reports that the robbery was exposed as fake in recently leaked footage that appears to show the reality star calmly FaceTiming just moments after she was allegedly bound and gaged.

Then there are the stories over the public’s reaction to Kim’s terrifying ordeal…

As with anything Kardashian-related there were jokes aplenty on social media in the days after the robbery took place.

Some fellow celebs expressed outrage over the fact that so many saw fit to make light of Kim’s victimization.

For the most part, their pleas for empathy fell on deaf ears, as thousands expressed their belief that Kim brought the theft on herself by making a living flaunting her wealth in a world full of have-nots.

Many didn’t see Kim as a particularly sympathetic figure to begin with, and reports that the robbery was an inside job orchestrated by a member of her inner circle, or possibly even altogether staged, haven’t helped her situation.

Now, online retailer Costumeish has hit Kim with the ultimate low blow in the form of a costume that turns her horrifying ordeal into a punchline:

Technically, it’s a “Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Kit” that’s currently selling on the site for $69.95, but clearly, it’s based on the latest Kim scandal.

The members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are no strangers to controversial Halloween garb.

Last year a Caitlyn Jenner costume stirred up controversy in the weeks leading up to the holiday.

Even after Caitlyn gave fans permission to wear the costume, many still decried it as distasteful at best, transphobic at worst.

We doubt Kim will be offering her fans a similar pass.

The 35-year-old mother of two is currently suing the website Media TakeOut, alleging that it published three erroneous articles accusing her of staging the robbery.

We’re guessing a partier bound and gagged as part of a misguided joke is the last Kim wants to see on Halloween night.

Thus far, the site selling the costume has not responded to any media requests for comment.
