People Sure Are Mad That Kim Kardashian's Game Wasn't Working

People Sure Are Mad That Kim Kardashian's Game Wasn't Working

Sometime during the weekend, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood stopped working for some players. Given the game's popularity -- it's currently the number one free game on iTunes -- it's probably not surprising that some fans got miffed that their game time was interrupted. Even so, getting death threats over something like this is kind of ridiculous.

The outrage is mostly happening on Instagram, where Kim Kardashian posts pictures of her everyday life. To be clear: if you peruse Kim Kardashian's Instagram, you'll find that it's kind of a wasteland to begin with. Lots of people regularly argue in the comments about Kardashian's figure, Kanye, North West, or they're desperately trying to get people to visit another link or Instagram profile. In this sense, comments about her game almost seem saner than the overall reception that some photographs normally receive, if you can believe that.

Still, some of these comments -- spotted by neoGAF user Jasper -- are sort of absurd:

Wow. Just wow. Getting death threats over something small in video games unfortunately isn't new, but still.

If for some reason that sampling wasn't enough, you can check out more images like this here. And in case you're currently addicted to this game: it seems to work now, based on what I can tell after downloading. Still, I'd advise against spending too much time on the comments of Kim Kardashian's Instagram profile.


Comments

    Ahahaha! I was originally going to make a comment that being unable to play it would be healthy for everyone, but seeing some of these comments just makes me laugh my ass off.

    People are freaking out over losing FAKE celebrity status. What the hell has Hollywood become?

    I wonder if people will ever learn to crop their screenshots?

    I cant stop laughing after reading this. Some of these people are more abusive then the worst MOBA players.

    This is honestly hilarious. The whole situation including the fact that this “game” exists is ludicrous.

    I have to assume that some of, if not most of, these are parodies.

    Otherwise my 18th-floor office (and the people on the footpath) needs to be glad that the windows don't open.

    Change some of the words to make it relatable to CoD and these outbursts become very scarily familiar.

      Un-nerf Snipers RoT drop of 0.2 seconds or I kill you?

      I was going to make a joke about CoD for girls but you beat me to it.

    This is bad... I feel bad... So many caps, so many whiny annoying humans... This is why we cant have nice things - let alone garbage like this.

    In related news I have figured out a way to generate a list of people that should not be allowed to breed.

      Yep, ask them if they voted for Tony Abbott.

      ...zing.

    Wow.
    Anyways, serves them right for embracing the worst downloadable thing on Google Play.
    Braindead is as braindead does.

    OMG Kim!!! She was in the middle of a date with her chocolate man. WTF??

    These people have to be joking. Also may I ask why someone as idiotic as Kardashian is even famous?!?!?!

      I'd actually wondered this at one point, then felt dirty for reading up on why...

      a) She had a 'famous' dad (OJ Simpson's lawyer)
      b) She was Paris Hilton's wardrobe assistant
      c) http://www.wetpaint.com/kardashians/articles/sure-shes-beautiful-but-why-is-kim-kardashian-famous
      d) Something amusing: http://youtu.be/zRqvYq-pFPE?t=39s

    Reporting on a Kim Kardashian 'game' on a gaming website is like reporting on Kim Kardashian as a legitimate celebrity, you know someone famous for actually doing something that requires talent...
