Kim Kardashian slammed over ‘cruel’ Kate Middleton joke amid speculation

Kim Kardashian slammed over ‘cruel’ Kate Middleton joke amid speculation

The reality star used the Kate Middleton conspiracy theories as inspiration for her Instagram caption.

As well as running multiple businesses, keeping up her social status, trying to become a lawyer and starring in a TV show, it seems that Kim Kardashian also fancies herself as a bit of a private detective too.

The 43-year-old has caused quite a stir on social media after making a controversial joke about Kate Middleton amid the continuing speculation surrounding the Princess of Wales.

The incessant conspiracy theories have blown up internationally, but most people didn't have a Kardashian chiming in on the 'where is Kate' saga on their bingo cards for 2024.

As you are probably already very aware, rumours have been rife about the future queen following her hiatus from public life since December, ahead of an abdominal surgery in the New Year.

Kate spent nearly two weeks at The London Clinic in Marylebone after she underwent the operation on 16 January before returning home where she continued her recovery privately.

She then dropped a clanger on Mother's Day after uploading a dodgy edit of her and her children, which only added fuel to the fire.

Kensington Palace had earlier encouraged the public to 'understand her desire to maintain as much normality for her children as possible and her wish that her personal medical information remains private'.

But obviously, this plea fell on deaf ears and people have still been spinning wild theories online.

Kim Kardashian's Instagram caption about the Princess of Wales has caused a stir online.

It then emerged that Kate had been spotted out and about just a mile from her cottage in Windsor on Saturday (16 March), with onlookers describing her as looking 'happy, relaxed and healthy'.

But despite this, on Sunday, Kim Kardashian decided to enter the chat and used the rumours about the Royal Family as inspiration for one of her Instagram captions - but not everyone is best pleased that she was poking fun at the Princess.

Sharing a series of snaps showing her in embellished leather pants and a cropped Dr Dre 'Up In Smoke Tour' t-shirt, the reality star stood next to a car while striking a pose.

Kim captioned the post: "On my way to go find Kate."

Although some people saw the funny side of it, a lot of social media users slammed her 'cruel' joke and pointed out that they presumed she might have more sympathy for someone who is also extremely used to public scrutiny.

Others also pointed out that Kim and her siblings have been called out for photoshop fails themselves quite a lot, so it seemed like a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

One person commented: "Nothing like a celebrity who allegedly hates rumours, spreading rumours."

Another said: "This is not even funny!! F***ing bad taste!!"

A third added: "Really? Had to get on the Kate Middleton train. I knew there was a reason I stopped watching your show."

A fourth wrote: "Kim imagine being trolled and made fun of after you got robbed in Paris? Girl take this insensitive post down."

And a fifth fumed: "Not very kind. This 'joke' will likely seem cruel with hindsight."

LADbible has contacted Kim's representatives for comment.
