The Kardashians were victims of two different pranks this weekend. According to Zap2it on Jan. 21 the Kardashians were subject to a second fake 911 call on Sunday. The first one took place on Friday and resulted in a nasty "swatting" for the Bruce and Kendall Jenner on Friday.
After having been “swatted” on Friday, they probably thought things were going to be a bit calmer the rest of the weekend. But on Sunday, somebody thought it would be funny to do a Kardashian fake 911 call.
The call apparently came from someone saying there was something happening at the former Kardashian home in Malibu, California. The reality of the situation was that the home was empty and the family was 20 miles away in their present house.
FOX news explains:
Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Sunday that it’s too soon to tell whether the reality TV stars are the latest victims of so-called “swatting,” a hoax intended to get officers, including specialized SWAT teams, sent to a home.
Needless to say, the family is not happy with the fake 911 call. Kris Jenner has vowed to find out who is responsible for the calls.
Kendall Jenner added on Friday after the first prank call or “swatting”: "love it when 8 police officers show up at my door and 10 cop cars are outside my house. just another casual Friday evening at the Jenner household. #nbd #EveryonesOk,"
The Seattle Times explains other celebs victims of fake 911 calls include Tom Cruise, Ashton Kutcher, and Justin Bieber.
