I'll be honest: I'm not the kind of guy who keeps up with the Kardashians. Or any kind of celebrity news, for that matter. But this story is so dumb I just had to write about it.
On an episode of The Kardashians filmed last September and first aired last week, there was a clip where Kim's six-year-old son Saint West (what kind of self-righteous asshole calls their son Saint?) runs into the room with an iPad in hand, playing Roblox like most six-year-olds do. He was excited to show his mom a picture he found of her in the game, specifically that one image of her crying that's become a meme (above). She was shocked to see it was being used to advertise a "new sex tape" allegedly featuring her.
Later in the episode, she was shown crying on the phone to her ex-husband and babydaddy Ye, saying "thank god [Saint] can't fucking read yet" and ended the episode with "I have all the time, all the money, and all of the resources to burn them all to the fucking ground.”
Roblox Corporation responded after the episode aired, saying they've banned the developer responsible and reassuring that no such sex tape existed on their platform. The full press release reads:
"The referenced video was never available on our platform—we have strict moderation and policies to protect our community, including zero tolerance for sexual content of any kind which violates our Community Rules. The text reference to the tape that got around our filters was quickly taken down and fortunately visible only to an extremely small number of people on the platform. We also swiftly took down the associated experience and banned the community developer involved with the incident."
It's funny that the offending content was only available to "an extremely small number of people" that happened to include Kardashian's son when Roblox has 54.7 million daily users and 11.1 million "experiences," or games like the one Saint supposedly saw. Now, I'm not saying this didn't happen like Kim claimed, but others online believe this doesn't add up.
Firstly, Roblox has some pretty strict filters, being a kid's game and all. In its current state it's impossible to upload any content with the word "sextape" or any variation of such in the title or description. And secondly, even if that kind of content was there it should've been blocked out by age restrictions, assuming Saint's iPad had them enabled. People are surmising that either Saint dug through hundreds of thousands of experiences to find one advertising his mom's sex tape (which would be difficult if he can't even read), someone else made the game and the ad on his iPad and handed it to him to show her, or he just found an image of her cry face that the show framed as being related to her infamous sex tape.
Whatever it is, all PR is good PR, and Kim could probably use some of that after her dreadfully out of touch "nobody wants to work" comments a few weeks ago.
What do you guys think? Is Kim telling the truth or is this yet another Kardashian fabrication? Sound off below!
