Kim Kardashian went to Bahrain this weekend to promote her signature milkshakes but her arrival got mixed reactions. Read on to find out why.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star did not only draw out screaming fans, who paid up to 500 Bahraini dinars ($1,360) a ticket, during the opening of Millions of Milkshakes in Kuwait but attracted angry Muslim protesters as well.
According to Perez Hilton
, demonstrators rallied outside the new store, which is located near the capital city of Manama. They were reportedly chanting "God is great" while carrying slogans that read "Kim Not Welcome" and "none of our customs and traditions allow us to receive stars of porn movies!"
Fortunately, there were no reports of casualties. Authorities fired tear gas into the crowd and were able to contain the riot.
In other news, Scott Disick, the boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian, has shut down his restaurant, Ryu, just nearly seven months after it started operation. Showbizspy.com
reports the NYC establishment launch on April 23 but recently closed its doors to dine-in customers and instead offered diner-type food through a take out window. Then the restaurant shut down completely due to the storm Sandy and hasn't opened since.
Rumor has it that Disick hasn't been able to control his restaurant for some time now.
"Kourtney didn't think the venture would be a success," a source said. "She never fully supported him."
