The pair chose to make light of the ordeal, that took place earlier in the day, but fortunately they didn’t take their humor too far.
Kimmel, 48, kept a straight face as he explained how the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, had been tied up by five intruders dressed as cops, who stole $10 million of her jewelry.
But he couldn’t help break a smile as he delivered the punch line to his Jimmy Kimmel Live! audience.
“How is it possible … Somehow these guys found the one moment this decade that this woman wasn’t surrounded by 40 people with cameras, and they took advantage of it.”
He then declared himself the future vice president and issued a harsh warning to the robbers.
“We will tolerate a lot of nonsense, but you do not mess with Kim Kardashian West,” he said. “Whether you like her or not, she’s one of us, and if we find out you harmed even a single extension on her People’s Choice Award–winning head, we will find you and make you so Les Misérables, you will wish you were never born to a woman who doesn’t shave her armpits.”
The comedian then made reference to Ryan Lochte’s false robbery claim: “Right now, Ryan Lochte is on the set of Dancing With the Stars praying Kim made this whole thing up.”
O’Brien, 53, kept his joke short and sweet on Conan.
“No one was hurt, but in a mansion in Paris, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint. Kim was bound and gagged, then the robbers broke in.”
He quickly turned the joke on himself, when he realized he may have gone too far and said: “With that, his career was over.”
