Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Meet Alton Sterling’s Son in First Photo Since Robbery
Kim Kardashian West has posed for her first photo since her robbery in Paris last month and it was for an extra meaningful reason. Not to mention that horrid, cold and heartless story that was posted on Huffington about her robbery being fake and the apology of Media Takeout HAD to make.
Flashing a slight smile for the rare photo opp, Kim posed with husband Kanye west to celebrate fan Cameron Sterling’s 16th birthday. Cameron is the oldest son of Alton Sterling, who was shot dead by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in July.
“Shoutout to @kanyewest & @KimKardashian for showing 16th bday love last night to my client #CameronSterling, eldest son of #AltonSterling,” the Sterling family attorney Justin Bamberg captioned the snap that was posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday.
The 36-year-old reality star sported sweats and a black Saint Pablo baseball cap as she posed for the backstage photo at Kanye’s concert at the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Tuesday night.
In the wake of Alton Sterling’s death in July, the Selfish author was one of many stars to speak out on the tragedy.
In fact, Kim took to her blog share her thoughts on the shooting in a post titled, “#STRAIGHTUP #BLACKLIVESMATTER.”
“This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murdered by police officers,” the reality star wrote. “Like a lot of you guys, I watched the videos, and was appalled and completely heartbroken. I was left speechless, angry and numb.”
“I want my children [3-year-old North and 10-month-old Saint] to grow up knowing that their lives matter,” she continued. “I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the police, or tell him that he has to watch his back because the people we are told to trust — the people who ‘protect and serve’ — may not be protecting and serving him because of the color of his skin.”
Kim’s appearance with Cameron is the first time a new photo of the mother of two has been shared on social media since her robbery one month ago. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star returned to Facebook on Monday, but has since deleted the posts.
