Many people are, understandably, in uproar, branding the costume "offensive" and "tasteless." Reviews left on the website include, "disgusting and so wrong on every level" and "it's extremely tasteless to turn a tragedy into a funny costume." Another wrote: "I'm not a fan of theirs, but she's still human. It's really just rude."

A few commenters disagreed, calling it funny.

Reality star Kim was left badly shaken by physically unharmed after men dressed as police officers gained entry to her luxury, private accommodation in Paris in the early hours of 3 October. She was threatened at gunpoint, tied up and gagged, before being locked in a bathroom.

The men made off with millions of pounds worth of jewellery including a £2.5m ring that had been a gift from Kim's husband Kanye West. He was performing a concert in New York at the time, which he stopped mid-set after learning what had happened in France.

Police in Paris are investigation but the men are still at large.
