Rob & Khloe Kardashian’s Social Media Posts Seem Like A Way To Divert Attention From Kim Kardashian Post-Robbery
The Kardashians, and by extension, the Jenners, may not always see eye to eye, but when one of their siblings is in need, all petty tiffs and long harbored grudges go straight out the window. Both Rob Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian posted non-Kim Kardashian related pictures on Instagram following her robbery, and I believe this was perhaps in an effort to divert some attention from her. As Us Weekly reports, Kim's been "keeping a low profile" since the incident. So, rather than address the crime against their sister, it feels like Rob and Khloé smartly pulled a "hey, look over here!" so that Kim didn't have to be taunted by outsiders, naysayers, haters, and skeptics even further.
While that might not seem like much to a non-celebrity, to a family who lives, breathes, sleeps, and eats all things social media, it's actually everything, especially when we've been told that Kim's well-being is their focus. E! told Bustle in response to Keeping Up With The Kardashians filming being postponed, "Kim's well-being is our core focus right now. No decision has been made as to when production will resume." And though that statement may mean the network specifically, it's obvious that's the sentiment of the family who films the show, as well.
And Rob and Khloé aren't the only family members who have posted on social media since Kim's robbery. While the Rob used social media to promote his Arthur George sock line and Khloé promoted the launch of her Good American denim brand, Kylie and Kendall also returned to social media without mention of Kim. The sisters weren't promoting anything, but they still made it seem like it was business as usual with their nonchalant pictures of themselves, despite the fact that as Us Weekly reports Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie have all canceled book signings they had scheduled.
A source also explained to the publication, "The family is all on lockdown right now. They're deciding when to discuss the situation and how to move forward." And it makes sense. These social media posts seem like they're a way to give the public just enough of them to quell the questions, while they figure out their next move. But more than that, it feels like they're doing their best to continue to represent the Kardashian brand while Kim is currently unable to.
