The Kardashians are quickly making enemies with their SoHo neighbors.
Those who live in the area are furious over the mass chaos that erupted at the DASH boutique grand opening — and they're letting them know it.
President of the Soho Alliance, Sean Sweeney voiced his anger to The Villager, saying:
"I think it is reprehensible that they would tweet their fans to purposely create this zoo on our streets. They’re lucky no one was injured nor property destroyed. The arrests for disorderly conduct illustrate that the neighbors’ complaints were well-founded.
The Kardashians are attempting to bring all that is wrong with Los Angeles to Soho, as well as to their fans — a generation of classless, tasteless and clueless sheep."
Mary Anne Cartelli lives across the street from the boutique and described what the grand opening was like:
"Apparently, the sisters tweeted their fans to come to the party, but they were not admitted. Hundreds showed up. The sidewalks of the entire block were filled with screaming, excited fans who spilled into the street three to four people deep. There was no crowd control and little security.
The noise was deafening. My husband feared for our glass front door as people were pressed up against it. Several people in our building independently called 311. When the situation became clearly out of control, practically a riot of crazed fans, I called 911 and asked for crowd control as I was concerned someone would get hurt. After the police arrived…several arrests were made for disorderly conduct."
Mary also fears that the craziness will continue now that they're filming Kourtney & Kim Take New York and will be making sure they have all the right permits to do so.
Maybe they should send everyone on the street a gift basket to make nice. Between all the stuff they hawk it shouldn't be hard to put something together.
