For those of you who think Kim Kardashian isn't anything more than a harmless reality TV star famous for doing nothing (except maybe being a savvy self-promoter), think again. Turns out Kardashian is at the center of a political clash in Bahrain, where yesterday, riot police had to fire tear gas to disperse people near where Kardashian was set to make an appearance at the opening of her Millions of Milkshakes shop.
Unlike, say, a Kardashian event in the United States, where fans are hoping for a glimpse, a touch, an autograph of Kim K, the group in Bahrain was protesting Kardashian's very presence. This angry group of very religious Islamic protesters wanted Kim out of their country. Instead of screaming "Kim! Kim! I Love you, Kim!" these protesters were chanting "God is great." And holding signs that read: "None of our customs and traditions allow us to receive stars of porn movies."
