Kim Kardashian recently got her feathers ruffled when she came across clues that the world doesn’t actually revolve around her.
The E! reality star claims she had several items stolen from her luggage on her way back from the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday. Immediately, she threw the airline under the bus.
“Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage and taking some special items of mine! Some things are sentimental and not replaceable," Kim tweeted.
After a brief public tantrum, she offered her insight to avoiding similar incidents in the future (because she’s such an expert on the subject).
“What happened to the days when you could lock your bags! We need to get back to that,” she continued.
9-11 happened, Kim.
Actually, most airlines do recommend TSA approved locks on baggage, including the one Kim was riding. British Airways blatantly states on their website that, though baggage is required to be examined, they advise passengers to use these locks in order to avoid the exact situation Kim is blaming the airline for causing.
The airline’s official stance on the issue is:
“We accept no liability for the loss of jewelry, other valuables and money contained in checked baggage. You are advised to keep valuables, important documents and money either on your person or in your hand baggage.”
GASP… You mean a Kardashian should be treated like any other person in the universe?
Sorry to be harsh, but COME ON!
When inquiring with the airline about Kim's alleged stolen items, a rep for British Airways tells Hollyscoop, "We have received a claim and are continuing to investigate the matter. We do have guidance on our website regarding checked and hand baggage for all customers."
Yes, we know it’s frustrating to get ripped off, Kim. But don’t go blaming other people when it’s your fault too. If the stuff you lost was so valuable, why are you checking it instead of carrying it on the plane? Where’s Kanye? Couldn’t he have helped carry stuff?
No word back from Kim or her reps on why she didn't just carry her valuables on the plane.
