American reality star Kim Kardashian, known for her social media presence and being a guest at major events, was in Europe last week. After visiting London and being a guest at the Arsenal match, she stayed in Paris on Sunday and watched the match between PSG and Rennes with her son Saint.
While this may seem like a fun day out, her presence at these two matches has sparked a trend among football fans around the world, who are now blaming her for the defeats of both teams.
PSG Suffers Defeat
PSG suffered a 2-0 defeat in the match against Rennes.
"Great to welcome special guest @KimKardashian to the Parc des Princes today!" the club said. Kardashian used her popularity and influence among people to introduce her son to Kylian Mbappe, and at one point, her son was on camera with Neymar.
Everything was, of course, published on social networks. In the message she published on Instagram, she wished Neymar to recover as soon as possible, while she told the president of PSG that he fulfilled her dreams with her son.
The Kim Kardashian Curse
The fact that Kardashian was present at two matches when both clubs experienced defeats is the reason why many fans around the world are jokingly blaming her for bringing bad luck.
Dubbed the "Kim Kardashian Curse," fans are throwing shade at the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" alum. "Arsenal shock exit from the Europa League and now PSG getting cooked at home to Rennes, The Kim Kardashian curse is brewing," one user wrote on Twitter.
Fans' Reaction on Social Media
The Kim Kardashian curse is causing quite a buzz on social media. One user wrote, "The Kim Kardashian curse," along with a collage of the reality star's photos during the games side-by-side with the results of the football matches.
Another football fan commented, "PSG had not lost at Parc des Princes in 715 days: a 35-game run. Kim Kardashian visits and Christophe Galtier's side [loses] 0-2 to Rennes." A fourth user quipped, "Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner watching every team they support [loose], they're just like me," attaching a short video of the sisters at the PSG match.
It's clear that Kardashian's reputation among football fans has taken a hit, with many hoping she won't attend any more matches in the future. It remains to be seen if any other teams will fall victim to the "Kim Kardashian Curse."
