John Oliver Acknowledges Kim Kardashian’s Influence in Helping Solve Art Fraud Scheme – Deadline

John Oliver was back on HBO and HBO Max with a new episode of last week tonight where Kim Kardashian got a special mention. The comedian praised the businessman for helping to crack an art fraud scheme a couple of years ago.

“A few years ago at the Met Gala, the year 2018,” Oliver said. “Kim Kardashian made an appearance wearing head-to-toe Atelier Versace that was remarkably gold.”

Oliver showed an image of the coffin of the Egyptian Nedjemankh, which, at the time, had just been acquired by the Met museum. Kardashian, dressed in gold, took a photo with the golden coffin and the image went viral on social networks.

An anonymous informant tipped off international authorities that the coffin had been looted and the museum was tricked into buying it for $4 million. Oliver was impressed with Kardashian’s power, adding, “The woman has a real knack for producing incredible images just by standing next to men who look like they’ve been dead for a long time.”

When Oliver hit the punchline of his joke, an image of himself next to The Kardashians The star appeared on the screen making fun of himself.

The late night show’s episode continued to focus on merchants who don’t properly investigate when they purchase pieces of art that are often stolen. Oliver dealt Kardashian another blow when he pointed out that museums couldn’t just sit back and not investigate and wait “until Kim Kardashian takes a picture in front of one of our artifacts and we’re humiliated on the international stage. This cannot be all her responsibility, she is too busy revolutionizing fashion”.
