Tear Gas Used to Break Up Kim Kardashian Protests in Bahrain

Kim Kardashian

Socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian traveled to Kuwait and Bahrain to promote the opening of a Millions of Milkshakes shop there on Saturday. But her trip to the Middle East was not an uneventful one.

The AP reports that Bahraini police were forced to fire tear gas canisters into angry crowds of protestors who were offended by the very presence of Kardashian and her ilk.

“Syria receives martyrs while Bahrain receives whores,” read one banner, according to CNN (via The NY Post’s Page Six).

From Page Six:

Along with thousands of hysterical fans who paid up to 500 Bahraini dinars ($1360) a ticket to see the 32-year-old socialite help launch a Millions of Milkshakes franchise at an upscale shopping center, hordes of angry Muslim hardliners showed up with signs and chanted in protest.

An AP journalist saw protesters chanting “God is Great” near the shopping complex in Riffa, about 12 miles south of the capital Manama.

Demonstrators reportedly shouted many slurs at Kardashian, including “porn star” in light of her 2007 sex tape with singer Ray J. Norwood.

“Syria receives martyrs while Bahrain receives whores,” one banner read, according to CNN.

The promoter who brought the socialite to the Gulf kingdom denied reports of protests. “WHAT PROTESTS?? Kim Kardashian loved by the people of Bahrain & wants to return!!” Sheeraz Hasan tweeted Sunday.

The demonstrators were cleared before Kardashian appeared and she has not addressed the recent reports of protest. She posted glowing remarks about Bahrain on her Twitter, calling it “the prettiest place on earth.” It was retweeted by Bahrain’s foreign minister. She also tweeted: “Thanks @sheerazhasan and Paresh A Shah for an amazing trip to The Kingdom of Bahrain and Kuwait. We did it!!!”

Kardashian, was in Kuwait earlier this week to open another branch of the shop and also angered some.

“Her values clash with our traditions as a religiously committed people,” Mohammad Al Tabtabai, a Kuwaiti preacher, told the Gulf News. “Her visit could help spread vice among our youth.”

      Porsha has the mouth of a fish. Its highly bothersome :no:

      Phaedra is a damn fraud.

      I agree, Shahs of Sunset was a bore last night. Its a shame that MJ’s mother has driven ole girl to drugs cuz she is FAR from sober.

      GG is on coke. I can believe it. And the Persian Barbie is not cute. Her extensions are disgusting.

      Kim’s azz should have been upfront with how she felt from the beginning. Either she didn’t want to go, or her azz couldn’t afford to go, cuz they just got evicted from a mansion that they didn’t own, but spent 40g’s on landscaping.
