You go, Kim K! Word that Kim Kardashian has changed her mind and might be pressing charges against the animal activist flour bomber is great news for the world.
Kardashian can't be blamed for not pressing charges against the woman initially. It was only flour, after all, and in the flurry of the moment, with all the OMGs and cameras, she decided to downplay the incident so as not to take away from the charity event she was attending. She was scheduled for an hour and a half, and making a statement at the police station would have eaten into her face time.
But hearing that she was going to let this lady off the hook entirely was kind of infuriating. Bullies come in all shapes and sizes -- and ages -- and this woman is one of them. Just because Kim is a celebrity who puts herself out there and is often the butt of criticism and ridicule does not mean that she does not deserve the same respect as anyone else.
More from The Stir: Kim Kardashian Should Have Worn This Dress When She Got Flour Bombed
Part of the grey area was that the heckler used flour -- how harmless can you get? Kim was able to clean herself off perfectly with a blow dryer and towels. No big deal. None of her expensive clothes were ruined. But what if it had been a bucket of fake blood, like activists used to use in the old days? Or some type of hazardous substance? Or a gun?
By pressing charges against this woman Kardashian is sending a powerful message to bullies everywhere that it's fine to have opinions and to voice them. But violence of any kind is just not cool, and will get you into a bit of a mess, and not the type you can easily get rid of with a blow dryer, either.
