Celebrities are rallying around Kim Kardashian after she was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris apartment on Sunday night.
Piers Morgan has spoken out in support of the 35-year-old reality TV star, while James Corden and Chrissy Teigen have blasted internet trolls who have been posting negative tweets about Kim since the incident took place.
Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan expressed his sympathy for Kim by tweeting, "Feel very sorry for Kim Kardashian. Must have been a terrifying experience."
TV presenter Corden had a more direct message for those who had been verbally abusing Kim on Twitter. "People making jokes about Kim Kardashian tonight would do well to remember that she's a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend," he wrote. "Be nice or shut up."

However, it was Kim's close friend Chrissy Teigen who had the most to say. The 30-year-old model and wife of John Legend posted a series of tweets attacking those who "naturally hate celebrities."

Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you'd make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016
It is just a weird little world that I cannot expect anyone to get. I know it seems super awesome and laughable. I know.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016
I myself think it is bonkers.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016
No one is begging you for sympathy. I know the game plan is to naturally hate celebrities https://t.co/EMHRslQKu6— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016
Please do not think that I think celebrities are special snowflakes. I just miss empathy, in general, for everyone.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 3, 2016
Kim is currently staying in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week. Police confirmed jewellery worth several million euros was stolen during the armed robbery and a spokesperson for the star said she was not harmed.
"Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers," her representative told E! News. "She is badly shaken but physically unharmed."
Kim's husband Kanye West, who was performing at the Meadows Festival in New York when he was told about the incident, stopped the concert early.
"Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early," a statement from Kanye's representative said. "Please get home safely."
