There’s a reason why both Kim Kardashian’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are being watched even closer than usual, at least by this reporter. That’s because Rob Kardashian recently posted a shocking Instagram post, if the Kardashian Instagram account wasn’t hacked, that is, comparing Kim to the character Amy Dunne in the movie Gone Girl. The post was published approximately two hours ago, around 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 22 — and is still the only post that hasn’t been deleted from Rob’s Instagram account as of this writing.
“This is my sister Kim, the b**** from Gone Girl.”
For those who’ve seen Gone Girl, they know that Rob didn’t just lob a positive portrayal of Kim to his 2.7 million followers on Instagram, and now the rest of the world. Instead, the “Amazing Amy” that is the central character of the movie starring Ben Affleck is a woman who seems pretty vulnerable and helpless at first as she deals with the changes in her marriage. She goes to great lengths to appear as if her husband is the complete bad guy who has done her wrong — and even ends up missing — hence the Gone Girl title. In the end, various twists and turns in the book and movie prove that Amy isn’t as helpless as one believes, but she’s definitely a heartbroken woman.
There’s only mystery surrounding why Rob would call Kim such an insulting word, reports TMZ. As far as Kim’s response thus far, at the same time Rob was posting his insulting Gone Girl comparison to Kim on Instagram, she was busy (or her social media rep was busy) sending promo tweets about the 10th season’s second episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians airing on Sunday evening.
#KUWTK is brand new tonight! Are you watching tonight?”
Whether Rob’s diss against Kim was merely a publicity stunt, or symptomatic of a larger concern, the troubled Kardashian son has reportedly un-friended his Kardashian Family members on social media, as reported by the Inquisitr. The bloodied image from the Gone Girl movie, a pivotal scene wherein actress Rosamund Pike returns home to fall into the arms of her freaked-out husband, is definitely a shocking image to see on Rob’s Instagram account in comparison to his sister. As expected to be seen from promos of their reality TV show, Kim will get mad at Kourtney for at first refusing to take part in Kim’s mobile app game.
