On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that banned immigrants from seven majority-Muslim nations (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) from entering the United States legally. On Saturday, reality celebrity Kim Kardashian responded with a tweet that has quickly gone viral.
Though the reality star has stayed mostly silent on social media since she was robbed at gunpoint last fall, she returned to Twitter on Sunday to post a photo claiming that more citizens are killed each year by Americans with guns than by “Islamic jihadist immigrants.”
“Statistics,” Kardashian captioned the photo.
Kim’s tweet notes that more Americans are killed each year by “falling out of bed,” “armed toddlers,” “lawnmowers,” and “lightning” than Islamic jihadist immigrants.
Her simple comment has had the internet buzzing with her tweet generating over 131,000 retweets and 250,000 likes (an average tweet usually generates about 10,000 retweets).
In November, Kardashian’s husband Kanye West said he didn’t vote, but if he had, he would have voted for Trump.
