Hulu’s reimagining of E!’s blockbuster hit that was Keeping Up with the Kardashians, now known simply as The Kardashians, hit the streamer just last week and fans can’t stop talking about all the drama already unfolding. While some may be mesmerized by the Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson storyline – which we all know ends with Thompson having an affair with and impregnating his trainer – others have been glued to the screen for Kourtney Kardashian’s love story with Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker. But, in the wake of her extremely public and upsetting divorce from Ye, aka the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, it’s Kim Kardashian who has our sympathy from the premiere episode.
During the debut, we see Kim Kardashian approached by her six-year-old son Saint West to show her something on his phone. While the kiddo was scrolling through the online building game known as Roblox, he spotted a clickbait photo of his mom’s iconic “crying face.” Along with the image, the post contained a caption telling its viewers that it contained unseen footage of a sex tape that she was involved in many years ago.
Whereas in previous years, viewers may have seen Kim Kardashian react in a semi-helpless way, not really sure how to handle such a thing, that’s no longer the case. Perhaps it’s the fact that she’s now a mother and hopes to protect her children from seeing content like this, or maybe it’s the years of absolute bullsh*t that she’s needed to handle due to misogyny and people coming for her family, but either way, Kim no longer has time for any of this mess. Her response you ask? Kim said that she has “all the time, all the money, and all the resources to burn them all to the fucking ground” meaning that she wants to take legal action against Roblox and slap them with a lawsuit. And while this may very well be the solution for lots of things in this world, the chances of Kim being able to take on Roblox is pretty slim.
With its content and accessibility constantly being called into question, Kim Kardashian isn’t the only parent out there worried about what their child is seeing when they log in to the gaming community. In fact, multiple parents have voiced their concerns with the platform only to receive a less than satisfying response from Roblox who claims that they’re doing their best but can’t police all the fresh content popping up. As for their showdown with the Kardashian clan, Roblox claims that the video was never on their platform due to their “strict moderation and policies.” But while the video may not have been there, the wording already was. Thankfully, Saint is at an age where he doesn’t understand what the words mean and Roblox says that they’ve since deleted the popup.
With so much on her plate between running a company, being a good mother, and dealing with one of the messiest divorces in history, we hope that Kim Kardashian’s problems with Roblox end here. Everyone deserves a life where they don’t need to worry about what their child is seeing on the internet, especially if the content in question is centered around a scandal that included them.
