We’ve learned socialite Kim Kardashian threatened to sue Roblox, apparently over a game that claimed to offer an unreleased sex tape.
First reported by E Online, Kim Kardashian threatened to sue Roblox when her six-year old son Saint West saw a game made in Roblox, which claimed to have her unreleased sex tape.
For those unaware, Roblox is a DIY-sandbox game platform where you can make your own games, and you can also naturally play games made and hosted by other players.

In the very real episode of The Kardashians on television, when shown the game advertising her supposed sex tape, Kim said “I have all the time, all the money, and all the resources to burn them all to the fucking ground.”
The folks at Roblox were quick to ban the game and its creator, while noting despite the ban it actually had no sex tape in its world:
“The referenced video was never available on our platform,” a Roblox representative said. “We have strict moderation and policies to protect our community, including zero tolerance for sexual content of any kind which violates our community rules.”
They added, “The text reference to the tape that got around our filters was quickly taken down and fortunately visible only to an extremely small number of people on the platform. We also swiftly took down the associated experience and banned the community developer involved with the incident.”
Despite the news that Kim Kardashian threatened to sue Roblox being a potential lawsuit, the game was actually sued last year over unauthorized song use. This led the Roblox studio to naturally banning the game and its creator.
Conversely, Roblox also sued one of its users, Reuben Sim, with a $1.6 million USD lawsuit for “terrorist threats” and inciting a “cybermob” within the game. The game has also ben using an ID verification system to help shield younger players from potential harassment.
