TikToker gets shot and says Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS saved her life

“Like body armour for women”

TikTok star Angelia ‘Honeygxd’ says wearing Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS shapewear saved her life, after she was shot.

The creator from Kansas City, Missouri in the US was involved in a shooting incident last New Years Eve and credits the stretchy undies for helping her not “bleed out.”

This is the part where we tell you not to try this at home. So, eh, please don’t.

In a video with over 1.5m views, Angelina explains: “This New Years I got shot four times. The night I got shot, under my dress I was wearing a SKIMS shaping bodysuit.

“It was so tight on me that it literally kept me from bleeding out.”

While we do NOT recommend using SKIMS to help or prevent gunshot wounds, Angelina is a big fan and says: “I recommend it. I’m definitely going to buy some more.

“I mean, I should wear it every day. It’s like body armour for women.”

“Call it fate or Jesus, but I’ma call it Kim.”

Our lawyers have asked us to once again include a friendly reminder the SKIMS are not, in fact, body armour. All good, yeah?

She went on to thank her new favourite clothing item’s creator for saving her, saying: “Call it fate or Jesus, but I’ma call it Kim. I’ma call it Kim for sure.”

All jokes aside, we’re just thrilled she’s ok and we hope Kim and her become besties.
