the celebrity Kim Kardashian threatened to sue the platform roblox after a game that offered an alleged ‘sex tape’ of the actress appeared on the digital platform.
Roblox is a gaming platform that has several other games made by the players themselves. Recently, one of these games used a photo of Kim Kardashian’s face as a decoy, in addition to claiming to have unpublished images of a ‘sex tape’ of the actress and businesswoman.
As reported by the North American website Polygon, in the episode “Burn Them All to the Fucking Ground” from The Kardashians, a series that shows the behind-the-scenes of the Kardashian-Jenner family’s life, Kim’s six-year-old son, Saint, saw the ad and showed it to his mother, who later said: “I have all the time, all the money, and all the resources to burn them to the ground”. The clip was shared on Twitter by user @shannonsharpeee:

In response, the Roblox platform banned the game’s developer and denied that their platform featured the alleged sex tape. According to a developer spokesperson, “the referenced video was never available on our platform. We have strict moderation and policies to protect our community, including zero tolerance for sexual content of any kind that violates our rules. We quickly reduced the associated experience and banned the community developer involved with the crash.”.
This is not the first controversy involving Roblox. The developer has already been sued for $200 million last year for unauthorized use of music, had a user banned and sued for posting terrorist threats, and has seen a number of mass shooting reenactments. Roblox Corporation recently launched an identity verification service to help protect younger users.
Roblox is free and available for PC, Xbox One, Android and iOS devices.
