Kardashian Threatens To Sue Roblox, Over Sexual Tape Ad
Although Roblox is almost everywhere, I didn’t expect to see it in a clip from The Kardashian. She was visibly upset on the April 14 episode of “Burn Them all to the Fucking Ground” when Saint, her son, allegedly discovered an advertisement in-game that featured an image of Kim’s crying face. The ad was called “super inappropriate”, like Kim’s new sex tape.”

Original report by Polygon. Kardashian was hosting a barbecue when her son visited to show her Roblox content. Saint said, “That’s not me.” Saint explained that it was a game. His mother replied, “Oh, it is a game?” We’re going to sue them if they make a game that has my name and image.”
Kardashian called it an advertisement, but it was likely her son saw the description of an in-game experience. Experiences are created by members of the community, many of who are children. Roblox Content Moderators exist but can be difficult to keep inappropriate content off the site. This is a major problem as half of the 30 million game users are below 13.
For the Sexual content, Roblox has a zero-tolerance policy
However, the platform’s mature content lock is disabled by default. This makes it easy for children to stumble across inappropriate content. Rogue developers have found ways to hack Roblox safety filters.
A spokesperson for Roblox confirmed to Polygon that the text reference was present on its platform. They denied that Roblox ever hosted sex tapes. The spokesperson for Polygon stated that the text reference had been removed and that the company “swiftly removed the associated experience and prohibited the community developer involved in the incident.” Roblox didn’t respond to a request for comment at the time of publication.
Kardashian was furious after a sex tape of her infidelity surfaced in 2007. She said that she didn’t want her past to be brought up 20 years later in the episode. ”
