Just a few days ago, it was reported that Kim Kardashian-West was suing popular urban blog MediaTakeOut over a series of inaccurate posts regarding her recent robbery in Paris.
Well, now MTO has had a sudden change of heart and now and they are apologizing for making light of Kim Kardashian’s pain.

MTO’s founder, Fred Mwangaguhunga spoke with CNNMoney recently and he acknowledges that their coverage of the story went too far.
Our number one goal is to produce the most accurate information as quickly as possible and we did that.
But now, looking back at it, you have a chance often times to look back and reflect on what it is that happened. It’s now clear that she was robbed. It’s clear that the reporting that we did hurt her, and we certainly don’t want that to be what we do.
The site posted three posts, which each suggested French authorities suspected the reality star and her mother, Kris Jenner, of committing a crime by faking the robbery. Mwangaguhunga said the outlet based that reporting on information from reputable sources.
[Sidebar: The Huffington Post was one of the first to post bogus information that Kim K. ‘lied’ but they deleted it soon after posting (click HERE if you missed that).]
For the record, all three stories that are cited in Kardashian’s lawsuit have been removed from the MTO and Mwangaguhunga states that he merely did it because it was the right thing to do.
“It’s a bigger issue than just someone telling you to take it down,” he told CNNMoney.
“Sometimes you take it down because there’s something on there that’s not right and your readers are being misled by the information on it.”
I smell bullshhhhhh but ok.
