Kim Kardashian was horrified after seeing a high-school girl’s injuries after she was shot in the face with rubber bullets during a protest over George Floyd’s murder. The mother of four was shocked and horrified at the gruesome image of the young girl with a gaping, bloody hole in the middle of her forehead. Her eye was black and blue and swollen shut. The injury is so severe it looks as if she may need reconstructive surgery in addition to stitches. One can only imagine how much pain the young girl is experiencing. America is facing a volatile time under President Donald Trump who never condemned police brutality but instead has run his campaign on “Law and Order.” George Floyd’s murder has been a wake-up call to the country that black people and other minorities are being brutalized and murdered at the hands of the police force that is supposed to protect citizens.
With growing unrest across the nation and the fear of looters and violent attacks on the rise, more communities are threatening to use force against protesters, many who say they are assembling in a peaceful manner.
Kim Kardashian shared the following comment along with a photo of the young girl’s injuries.
“This is heartbreaking and so disturbing. Does anyone know how I can get in contact with her? I would love to help her with her medical care if she needs it.”
