Kim Kardashian is being naughty again! Star causes uproar over Israel tweet
American television reality star, Kim Kardashian sent out a pro-Israeli tweet declaring to her 17 million twitter followers that she was “praying for everyone in Israel.” What Kardashian did not expect was the fierce backlash, including death threats, FoxNews.com reported on Nov.16.
“Die in hell,” wrote one tweep. Less brutal critics said they had “lost all respect for her,” and called her a “disgrace to her people” and outright “disgusting. Others told her she should be “praying for Palestine, not Israel.”
According to Twitchy.com, which archives all tweets even if a user deletes them, five minutes after the initial post, Kardashian attempted to appease her haters with the follow-up tweet: “praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!”
However, both tweets disappeared from her account and she has resumed discussing other important things – like her two-hour Tracy Anderson workout on Saturday.
Kardashian addressed the controversy on her blog later on Friday, with a post entitled “A Message to You Guys.”
Kardashian said that she wanted to explain her two tweets, which were deleted subsequently, were her prayers to all Palestinians and Israelis, regardless of their religion or political beliefs.
“I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize,” she wrote in another tweet.
She added that she hoped for a resolution and prays for people worldwide who are innocent victims of similar crossfire.
