With their continued media presence, Kim Kardashian and her family have made a fortune both in money and fame. The family rose to fame with their shoe Keeping up with the Kardashians, but recently, the show ended its record-breaking 20-season run. But Hulu came up with another show for the family called The Kardashians, a reality TV show that follows the family’s day-to-day life. The show premiered its first episode on the 14th of April where controversy has spurred with Kim Kardashian demanding to sue the popular online gaming platform Roblox.
The controversy regarding the Kardashians and Roblox
Roblox is a multiplayer creation game where players can create their content and share it with other players. It’s not shocking for Roblox to be part of a controversy. The game has been in light of many controversies, including players posting pictures of Adolf Hitler, using racist and homophobic slurs. Roblox has also been used to recreate mass shootings and has been sued for millions of dollars for music copyright issues.
Despite all this, Roblox is still very popular in the mobile gaming community, especially among young children. During the first episode of The Kardashians, Kim’s son discovers something inappropriate on the game related to her and quickly brings it to Kim, who quickly takes the tablet away. Kim Kardashian discusses the possibility of legal action, saying, “I have all the time, all the money, and all the resources to burn them all to the f***ing ground “. Hulu named the episode “Burn Them All to the F*cking Ground.”
This intense verbal reaction from Kim Kardashian forced Roblox to state the situation where they said that the footage never actually existed in the game and said the user who created the content was banned.
However, it is still unclear if the ban is permanent as multiple creators who the game has banned have made their way back to the game. Roblox has been at the center of controversies for many years, and this new encounter with Kim Kardashian reverbs the old claims of the game not being safe for children.
