Kim Kardashian blasts prank callers after SWAT team sent to former Malibu home

By Daniel S Levine,

Kim Kardashian took to Twitter on Friday to slam the prank caller who called in a fake emergency at the reality star’s former family home in Malibu.

On Friday, Kardashian tweeted that her mother, Kris Jenner, called her to tell her about the prank call, which claimed that someone was shot at the house and “15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up!”

“These prank calls are NOT funny!” she continued. “People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. Its dangerous & not a joke!”

According to The Associated Press, LA County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore would not say just yet if this was the latest “swatting” prank pulled on celebrities in LA.

Still, on Sunday, Whitmore said that lawmakers need to make “swatting” and prank calling 911 a felony. Whitmore confirmed that there are “scores” of incidents that officials are investigating. Some hoaxers even use technology that allows their 911 calls to look like they were made at the person’s home.

“What we want to do is have the legislature turn up the heat on these people,” he said. “This is a serious, serious crime.”

Just last week, Tom Cruise became the latest “swatting” victim, even after police arrested a young boy in connection with other pranks on celebrities.
