Kim Kardashian West Defended by Celebrities After Armed Robbery

Celebrities have spoken out in support of Kim Kardashian West who was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris hotel room on Sunday by men dressed as police officers. The reality TV star and mother of two was tied up and locked in her bathroom before the perpetrators took off with millions of dollars worth of jewellery. Her husband Kanye West stopped a concert short as soon as he heard about the incident. But not everyone felt sorry for the reality star, with some Twitter users posting jokes about the incident after the news broke. Among others, James Corden came to Kardashian West’s defense, reminding everyone that she is a human being and deserved sympathy. People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she's a mother,a daughter,a wife,a friend.Be nice or shut up — James Corden (@JKCorden) October 3, 2016 Chrissy Teigen, who is married to singer John Legend, wrote a series of posts defending Kardashian and calling out the callous ways celebrities are sometimes referred to online. Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you'd make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016 Please do not think that I think celebrities are special snowflakes. I just miss empathy, in general, for everyone. — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016 The Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, condemned the attack, saying Kardashian will always be welcome to the French capital. Je condamne l’agression subie cette nuit par @KimKardashian à Paris et je tiens à lui dire qu’elle sera toujours la bienvenue à Paris. — Anne Hidalgo (@Anne_Hidalgo) October 3, 2016 Former co-host of the View, Sherri Shepherd, called Kardashian a wife, mother and sister. Just heard about @KimKardashian being robbed @gun point. So glad she’s okay. Kim you’re a, wife, mother, sister & praying woman #Godsgotyou — Sherri Shepherd (@SherriEShepherd) October 3, 2016 American comedian Steve Harvey called the entire situation “crazy.” Wow, this is crazy. Hope everyone's ok. https://t.co/jBDF0FvRYB — Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) October 3, 2016 British television host Piers Morden seemed shocked by Kardashian West’s terrifying experience. He later had to defend himself from fans who had branded him as a hypocrite over a comment he made about her selfies last week. Feel very sorry for @KimKardashian. Must have been a terrifying experience. #Paris #robbery — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 3, 2016 Sorry? I can't object to her naked selfies but also feel sorry for her being robbed at gunpoint? Stop being ridiculous. https://t.co/r0hIqQzP8l — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 3, 2016 Comedian Tom Green said he was “happy to hear everybody is safe.” Sorry to hear about this. Happy to hear everybody is safe. Kim Kardashian West held at gunpoint, robbed @CNN https://t.co/zg9VIaXS9K — Tom Green (@tomgreenlive) October 3, 2016 […]

Haze fills the air and ash rains from the sky: Just another day in Siberia.

This week, cities mark World Car-Free Day, an annual event to promote biking, walking, mass transit, and other ways to get around sans motor vehicles (Solowheel, anyone?).

Technically, World Car-Free Day was Thursday, September 22, but participating cities are taking the “eh, close enough” approach to get their car-free kicks in on the weekend. Said cities include Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Brussels, Bogotá, Jakarta, Copenhagen, and Paris, where nearly half the city center will be closed to vehicle traffic on Sunday.

But going car-free, municipally speaking, is becoming more of a regular trend than an annual affair: Mexico City closes 35 miles of city streets to cars every Sunday; the Oslo city government proposed a ban on private vehicles in the city center after 2019; and in Paris, the government is allowed to limit vehicles if air pollution rises above health-threatening levels.

But even if your city isn’t officially participating in World Car-Free Day, you can be the change you want to see in your own metropolis. And by that, we mean: Just leave your keys at home. Horrible, no good things happen in cars.
