Kim Kardashian Hit With Flour Bomb

While attending a launch party for her new perfume Thursday night, Kim Kardashian received an unexpected shower of white powder from a woman in attendance.

Naturally, no one knew immediately what the powder was –  later determined by police and firefighters to be nothing but harmless flour. In the video below, you can clearly hear the woman who made the assault screaming “fur hag” – so it would make sense that’s the motive behind this incident.

Remember when Lindsay Lohan got a face full of flour for wearing fur back in 2008?

Such an attack caps months of appeals from animal activists and celebs for Kim to drop her personal affection for fur clothing; as well as sales at the popular Kardashian store Dash. In November, PETA released a billboard on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood with Kardashian, wearing fur nonetheless, strategically placed next to baby foxes. It read, “Kim: These babies miss their mother. IS SHE ON YOUR BACK?”

As for the attacker last night, Kardashian did not press charges and she was later released. You can check out video of the assault below.

Well, even tho I would like to say kudo's to the flour thrower, I do have to say that is taking a violent approach, who knows the Kardashian might be allergic to flour. Ouch! that would not have been nice medical bill for the flour thrower to pay. But you also have to see that Kardashian has a heart, or she would have fiercely prosecuted the flour thrower. So maybe there is hope for her. I do very much agree with Lydia P. that it is not the Kardashian's that should be folks main target. If you take out the suppliers, they are forced to find other alternatives to satisfy their glamour attire. Personally, I can't stand any of the Kardashian garbage. No one around here follows any of their..."trends"???...In fact those in my family that are at the "trend" seeking age..do this when you mention the Kardashians-- =P

We all hate fur here, but personal attacks like this just make the protester as low as the one wearing the fur. Boycott and have nothing to do with this woman or her products. She is fully aware of the suffering involved in the making of fur garments but chooses not to care. No matter what you do to someone physically, you can never touch their heart. People like this care only for themselves, so take away their means of living that supports such a cruel lifestyle. If everyone simply boycotted everything she touched and every every event she attended, the power of the consumer would make sponsors take note.

I am glad that K did not press charges.

I'm not a follower of PETA and they should stay out of the porn business. If people are willing to be gay for pay, then you know some of these "stars" have performed with animals. And I don't mean in a Barnum & Bailey sort of way. As far as Kim is concerned, I would think urine, not flour, would have been more appropriate but she would have enjoyed it too much.
