Khloe Kardashian made an appearance at The Grove in West Hollywood, California, on Tuesday for the launch of her new line of denim, Good American, at Nordstrom, where she revealed the lasting consequences Kim's robbery will have on the famous family. Kim has already taken a big step back from social media, and has yet to make a statement since the incident.
"I mean, definitely it's been an incredibly traumatic experience for Kim and she's definitely taking some well needed and much deserved time off," Khloe, 32, tells the Associated Press. "I think it's just a wake-up call for everybody. ... But we definitely are just being more aware, and I think just making changes to our lives that I think at the end of the day, are positive changes."
Still, Khloe makes it clear that Kim's actions on social media shouldn't be in any way blamed for the robbery.
"No, I don't think anybody deserves anything to happen to them no matter who you are, what you do," she says. "Pulling back on social media I think is a personal choice ... and no matter what you post or don't post, that shouldn't give someone a reason to feel like they could do anything like that to you."
Meanwhile, Kim's mother, Kris Jenner, was also at the event, and said her first priority these days is making sure Kim feels "safe" again.
"I think it's just, you do what a mom does and you gather around, and you make sure she feels loved, and safe, and she's home, and that's all that matters," Kris, 60, tells E! News. "She wants to be with her kids, and family, and it's family first."
"You start looking at the world a little differently," Kris adds about how the robbery has changed her outlook when attending public events. "When you have a daughter at home who's struggling because of something horrific and tragic that happened, you start looking around a little bit differently."
Khloe definitely brought increased security to the event on Tuesday, her first public appearance since Kim's robbery. ET observed over 20 security "ambassadors" patrolling the public event, as well as uniformed security guards and LAPD officers, who were stationed at a police kiosk in the open-air mall.
Still, Khloe was clearly able to enjoy herself at the big denim launch, where she was also supported by her oldest sister, 37-year-old Kourtney Kardashian. Khloe Instagrammed a cute video from the event, in which the famous family and their friends are seen happily laughing and smiling on the red carpet.
