Guess her mission to be educated on Middle Eastern issues and affairs before heading out there has fallen on deaf ears!
As expected, Kim Kardashian toured Kuwait and Bahrain this weekend to promote their respective openings of Millions of Milkshakes, and despite taking it upon herself to beef up her knowledge on the current political climates of both countries after some misinformed Tweets resulted in fan backlash, many folks just WEREN'T happy that the reality starlet was there in the first place…and took to the streets to stage a PROTEST!
According to reports, about 50 hardline Islamic protesters stood outside the new store near the capital city of Manama before Kim arrived for the opening, many of whom chanting "God is great" while holding up signs that read "Kim Not Welcome" and "none of our customs and traditions allow us to receive stars of porn movies!"
However, before the shenanigans could get TOO out of control, local authorities dispatched their riot police, who fired TEAR GAS into the crowds and broke it all up!
Goodness gracious! Talk about a tough crowd to please!
We're just glad to hear that all of this was resolved before shiz got TOO out of control, and that no one was hurt!
Especially our Kim!
Some extremists may not have approved of her presence, but we know she only went out there with the best of intentions and to keep herself educated, so we give her a lot of credit in that respect!
Glad you're safe, gurl!
