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.
“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.”
