Kim Kardashian Flour-Bombed During Red Carpet EventBy: Amanda Crum - March 23, 2012
Say what you want about Kim Kardashian, but she’s learned to shake off vicious attacks on her character…even when they involve a bag of flour.
E! News reported that at a swanky launch party at a West Hollywood hotel last night for Kardashian’s new fragrance–True Reflection–a young woman ran up to the socialite while she was doing interviews on the red carpet and dumped an entire bag of flour on her before running away. She was eventually caught by Kardashian’s security people but no reports have been made yet as to why she did it. Rumor has it that the woman was heard saying something about the star wearing fur.
Kim was a good sport about the incident and laughed it off, refusing to press charges–although a battery report was still filed. The woman was later released from custody.
A similar incident occurred at this year’s Oscars, when character actor Sasha Baron Cohen dumped ashes–supposedly belonging to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il–on Ryan Seacrest during an interview. Seacrest didn’t handle the incident quite as gracefully as Kardashian.
