Kim Kardashian Says She’s Using Trip to Learn About Middle East

Kim Kardashian, Middle East

And just when you’ve gotten over wanting to slap Kim Kardashian, she goes and does something stupid again.

She’s packing up for a trip to Kuwait and Bahrain and TMZ says she hopes to educate herself on the Middle East crisis while she’s there.

Of course, she’s not heading overseas for humanitarian reasons. Just like everything Kim does, this trip’s about making money. She’s going to make appearances at some Millions of Milkshakes shops opening in the two countries, because apparently they want to see if her milkshakes will bring all the boys to the yard there too.

But she’s had a recent Twitter controversy, in which she put her big foot in her bigger mouth about the Israel-Palestinian conflict and she says she’s determined to use the trip to educate herself about the political situation in the region.

In her tweets, which have since been deleted, Kim posted two tweets to her personal account. The first one read, “Praying for everyone in Israel,” sounding like she’d picked a side. The second one read, “Praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world.”

Leave it up to the Kardashians to use the suffering of people in the middle of a war zone to get themselves a bit more publicity.

TMZ says Kim will be under constant protection of a private security squad and she’s set up meetings in both countries with local leaders.

Wonder if anyone will have the heart to tell her that where she’ll be is more than 1,000 miles away from where the fighting is, and that the concerns of Israelis and Palestinians aren’t those of everyone in the Middle East?

Naaah, but she’ll look good on camera while she tries to grasp it all.
