Kim Kardashian got flour bombed at the launch party for her new fragrance line ‘True Reflection.’
While Kim Kardashian was doing interviews at the London Hotel in West Hollywood for her fragrance line, a short Asian woman came running towards her, out of the middle of nowhere, and threw a flour bomb all over Kim Kardashian’s hair and back.
Witnesses say they heard the woman shout something about a “Fur Hag” before throwing the flour bomb onto Kim Kardashian. Kim Kardashian was rushed off the red carpet and workers started to vacuum up the flour. In a short time, Kim Kardashian was back on the red carpet to finish interviews with all the flour brushed off her.
Kim Kardashian told E! News while laughing, “That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me. Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.” She continued, “But I’m okay! That was insane! I laughed it off and came right back! I took 10 minutes to dust it off and came back to do interviews. When I came back, I just said I asked my makeup artist to bring me powder and that I didn’t think he would bring that much!”
“That was crazy! Somebody just rushed Kim and it was kind of dangerous. I started cleaning off her jacket, and you know, she flipped her hair and we were back in business,” Kris Jenner, Kim’s mother told E! News.
It was suspected that maybe the flour bomber was working for PETA, but the group released a statement saying, “PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for real fur garments. Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not.”
Deputy Peter Gomez says the woman who allegedly threw the flour was detained by hotel security and later released at the scene. According to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Kardashian reportedly doesn’t intend to press charges but filed a non-criminal battery report.
