Riots, Protests After Kim Kardashian Visit to Bahrain

Kim Kardashian's visit to Bahrain to launch a new outlet for her Millions of Milkshakes franchise met riots. On Saturday, December 1, police threw tear gas and stun grenades to break off about 100 hardline Islamic protesters who were not pleased with her presence in their country. 

According to Bahrain's English language Gulf Daily News, Sunni Muslim MPs had presented a motion to parliament prior to her arrival, calling her "an actress with an extremely bad reputation". However, the motion gained no traction and was not put to a vote.

    Wow. Leave it to Islamic fundamentalists to make Kim Kardashian politically relevant—at least in a minimal, enemy-of-my-enemy sort of way.

    Kim Kardashian is detestable, but I must admit, she does have some pretty nice milkshakes.

    "protesters who were not pleased with her presence in their country. "

    I feel their pain.
