One of the robbers who attacked Kim Kardashian in 2016 in Paris has come forward and said he doesn’t feel guilty about the theft.
Yunis Abbas is one of 12 elderly men detained in connection with the break-in, during which Kim Kardashian was held captive at gunpoint while the gang of burglars known as the “grandpa robbers” stole jewelry valued at $10 million from her opulent hotel suite.
Abbas acknowledged in a recent interview with VICE News that he got the idea for the crime after constantly seeing Kardashian display her jewelry on social media.
“Since she was throwing money away, I was there to collect it, and that was that. Guilty? No, I don’t care. They should be a little less showy towards people who can’t afford it. For some people, it’s provocative.”
Speaking on the trauma their actions left on Kim and her team, he stated that they did not expect or consider anything like that would happen.
“You don’t come out of it unscathed. We didn’t expect this. Of course, she must have been traumatized.”
